With the arrival of the holiday season, consider giving ASGCA’s book, “Secrets of the Great Golf Course Architects,” as a thoughtful and unique present. The book would be 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. These online excerpts offer additional insight into the 244-page, hard cover, full-color coffee table book, which was co-authored by Michael Patrick Shiels.

Steve Forrest, ASGCA described the book as a “fascinating mix of heartfelt confessions and intriguing tales [that] casually reveal the creative process, the travel challenges, the dicey situations, and the incredible satisfaction that make up the life of a golf course architect.”

The book, available for $30 to U.S. residents and $40 to international residents, includes more than 150 color photographs and golf course renderings that accompany the stories.
