Golf architecture book by Paul Daley an international journey
I missed the first four editions of Paul Daley’s Golf Architecture: A Worldwide Perspective. I’ll have to scour the used book sections of local libraries and used book stores because reading the recently released fifth edition has left me wanting more.
Daley, who lives in Australia, has gathered 37 of the top names in golf and golf architecture to discuss their philosophies of design. Published by Pelican Publishing Co., the book dissects all major issues of golf design.
There’s a picture tribute to Mike Stranz, who passed away just after finishing a celebrated redesign of Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Shore course that will be featured in the 2010 AT&T National Pro-Am. Tim Liddy chimes in on the lessons vital to the future of U.S. Golf. Michigan-based architect Mike DeVries explores economical and environment-friendly dirt-moving. Martin Ebert recalls the preparation Turnberry undertook for the 2009 British Open won by Stewart Cink.
It is truly an international journey with photos and stories from Wales to Australia, Scotland and China.
The book is a bit pricey at $49.95, but the golf purist who loves the game will most certainly get his or her money’s worth soaking up all the pictures and expert text. For more visit pelicanpub.com or call 1-800-843-1724.
