A third section consists of a listing of 12,000-plus golf courses worldwide and the architects who designed them. A must book for collectors of golf books. There is a list of selected references in the back." p. 440

Beard Scope of Content Note:Identified by James B Beard in Turfgrass History and Literature: Lawns, Sports, and Golf (2014) as containing chapter(s) or section(s) on turfgrass but addressing a broader array of subjects than just turfgrass.
Annotation from
Golf Course Design,
by Geoffrey S. Cornish and Michael J. Hurdzan:
"An update of The Golf Course with additional text, new architects, updated course lists and biographies, professionally organized master course list and useful appendices. The best single reference source for the industry, with an accumulation of information not available elsewhere. A cornerstone of the golf course architecture library." p. 59

Quotable quotes"The feast of the 1920s and famine that followed in the 1930s clearly demonstrated to architects that the most magnificently designed course would not remain magnificent for very long when adequate funds were not available for upkeep."
