With the holiday season quickly approaching, now is a great time to give the gift of golf — or in this case, the gift of golf course architects. ASGCA’s book, “Secret’s of the Great Golf Course Architects,” makes for a wonderful gift and a great addition to any golf course enthusiast’s personal library.

Throughout the book are harrowing, moving, challenging, and inspirational accounts from 118 ASGCA members. “Inevitably, people who hear these stories say, ‘You should write a book!’” reflects ASGCA Past President Steve Forrest. “So, we did.”

These online excerpts offer additional insight into this 244-page hard cover, full-color coffee table book. Co-authored by Michael Patrick Shiels, “Secrets” is available for only $30 to U.S. residents and $40 to international residents. You may order online or call ASGCA at 262-786-5960 to place on order by phone.
