Abstract/Contents:Discusses the development of golf courses near residential subdivisions, explaining that "there are more golf courses today [in 1961] and more money is spent playing on them than was ever spent in the '20s [1920s]." Mentions that "there is a limit to the distance that people will go for recreation," emphasizing the potential need for golf courses to be located a short distance from densely populated areas. Provides recommendations for those interested in developing a golf course, focusing on country club-type golf courses, financing, costs of development, and construction planning. Suggests that "it is difficult to finance a country club. Insurance companies do not go for them too much and if they do, they only want to finance such a small portion that their help does not really mean anything." Briefly addresses five questions regarding golf course layout.
