Annotation from
Golf Course Design,
by Geoffrey S. Cornish and Michael J. Hurdzan:
"In his teens, Richardson published a leaflet on course design for distribution to friends. Carrying this intense interest in course design forward, the author later entered private practice in course architecture. In this extensive volume, he has brought together all the elements of routing and delivered them with textbook-like precision, yet in an entertaining fashion." p. 94
