Golf Course Design is textbook in nature and almost encyclopedic. The book is so comprehensive it could serve as the main textbook for an accredited golf course architecture study course. In addition to Graves and Cornish, more than 20 others contributed their insight to the work.
All major historical, aesthetic, business and technical issues are discussed. Of interest, there are design exercises, codes, a glossary of design terms and direction on the use of symbols for construction drawings.
Content from the British Isles is scattered throughout the text, with examples cited from 13 courses in total.
