The golf course that perfectly balances the art and science of our profession is a ghostly creature found few places on earth. Commendable cases abound, but such elusiveness neither dissuades our own attempts at such a design, nor undermines our fascination.  It follows that the intersection of these 2 antitheticals was the focus of our first book, 1996's "Golf Course Architecture", hailed by Golf Digest Senior Architectural Editor Ron Whitten "the modern bible of golf course design".   Six others in this sphere have followed.

 

Dangerous Beauty of Modern Golf Course Design

The watercolor paintings of Mr. Ingwersen are presented to illustrate our thesis that the cost premium (construction, maintenance, user fees, pace of play) incurred to meet with the recent trend of hyper-beautifying (ornamenting) North American golf courses is a contributing factor in the decline of golf’s popularity.

Golf Course Safety, Security
and Risk Management

Golf courses are complex environments blending the manicured with the natural, hosting people with different levels of knowledge and experience and subjecting them to potentially unfamiliar hazards.

This book examines the process and offers practical suggestions to protect golf course employees, owners and operators. Safety should not happen by accident.

Thus, this edition contains not only original content, but illustrates the rapid rate at which this dynamic profession evolves.

Golf Greens:

History, Design and Construction

 

In response to continual and seemingly industry-wide misunderstandings of the golf green, Dr. Hurdzan attempts to demystify and characterize, based on science and personal observation, the perhaps defining feature of any golf facility – the green.

Golf Course Design:

An Annotated Bibliography with

Highlights of Its History and Resources

Inspired by Winston Churchill’s quote “books in all their variety are often means by which civilization may be triumphantly carried forward”, Dr. Hurdzan teams up with co-author, long-time friend and architectural legend Geoffrey Cornish, who began his career under the famed Stanley Thompson, to craft this illustrative work which serves as the first of its kind to establish the connection between the golf luminaries past and present and their respective writings on the subject of design.

Golf Course Architecture:

Design, Construction and Restoration
