Looking for that perfect holiday gift? Richard Mandell, ASGCA, may have proviided the answer. His book, “The Legendary Evolution of Pinehurst, Home of American Golf” has been published.

The book, from T. Eliot Press, “is a completely re-designed and updated book of Richard’s 2007 Award-winning tome on the history of Sandhills golf, Pinehurst ~ Home of American Golf (no longer in print and very difficult to find).  The Legendary Evolution of Pinehurst, Home of American Golf has forty-five new pages added and numerous updates, including a brand new chapter chronicling the restorations of Pinehurst No. 2 and Mid Pines, the evolution of The Dormie Club and other advances in the recent past. This is a must have for those who love Pinehurst and the history of golf courses.  In addition to the new pages are never before seen 112 new images as well as an introduction from two-time Masters Champion, Ben Crenshaw. The book retails for $75.00 and is available by visiting www.teliotpress.com.”

“Set in today’s golfing context, Richard’s narrative was a vision the USGA quickly identified with our own vision of Pinehurst No. 2 and its future on the game’s national stage.” – Mike Davis, USGA Executive Director
