1992 – The Anatomy of a Golf Course by T Doak
These texts combined provide the student with everything one would want to know on the subject. However, for a student to round out their understanding of the matter, these design principles need to be seen applied in the wild.
Exposure to the greatest golf in the world armed with the wisdom conveyed in these works provides the basis for a lifetime of study and contemplation.
Our aim at Evalu18 is to shed light on this subject for those fortunate enough to live or travel to the UK & Ireland.
