Be aware the book is not written primarily as a golf architecture text but rather as a playing guide for the uninitiated to understand the significant elements that make up a golf course.

After establishing these major building blocks, the author provides course management techniques and strategies for attacking the golf course. It is essentially a course management guide from a golf course architects perspective.

There are two editions — the first in 1994 (IBSN 9780316472982) and the second in 2005 (IBSN 9780316058520).
