After four chapters and 95 pages, you arrive at the "Broad Criteria for Classic Golf Holes." The next chapter narrows the focus by discussing "Specific Features of Classic Golf Holes". Finally, in chapter 7, you are introduced to the 20 "Classic Golf Holes." Seventeen of the twenty are in the UK and Ireland. The last three chapters of the book are worth the purchase alone.
