Masters of the Links: Essays on the Art of Golf and Course Design represents an established golf course architecture library condensed into a single volume.

The book is arranged into five parts:

  1. St Andrews and Links
  2. Architecture
  3. Planning, Construction and Maintenance
  4. Hazards and Holes
  5. Contemporary Design

Geoff Shackelford once again collates pertinent information and presents it logically in Masters of the Links.

The Glossary of Terms shows the typical respect of the author to the uninitiated and establishes the terms as used in the book.
