A genuine pleasure
on 28 October 2009
I received this book as a birthday present earlier this month - it's a thoroughly impressive volume. Being what is politely described as a 'keen amateur golfer' I knew of Harry Colt and Co already of course. This has been put together with real love and care though and was a thoroughly fascinating read. There's some excellent history here, some lovely descriptions of the courses (some of which have been added to my Top 10 I'd Love to Play) and a real appreciation throughout the book both for the reader and of course for the exemplarary work of Mr Colt himself.
Add into that the sumptuous photographs - and some very thoughtful design work - and this really is a rich, elegant book. Heartily recommended to all golfers - or anyone looking to buy a golfer a Christmas present.
