9780471434801: Routing the Golf Course: The Art & Science that Forms the Golf Journey

Filled with advice, tips, strategies, and problem-solving techniques from some of the leading figures in golf architecture, Routing the Golf Course provides unique insight into the most essential phase of designing a golf course. Coverage includes material on all aspects of planning a golf course such as site evaluation; environmental conditions; programming; and financial, psychological, and strategic game considerations. This nuts-and-bolts information is balanced with anecdotal, real-life experiences from guest essayists such as land planner Gil Martinez, environmental psychologist Dr. Edward Sadalla, and golf course architect Arthur Jack Snyder. Also featured is an interview with longtime professional golfer and broadcaster Peter Oosterhuis, who also provides the foreword.

This book is divided into four key parts. "The Opening" begins with a brief history of routing, including the influence of St. Andrews, and continues with insightful examinations of the components that make up different courses. "Making the Turn" contains chapters on essential routing information such as the "rules" of routing, safety considerations, and methods for fitting holes together. "The Heart of the Course" explores the hands-on process of creating routing plans and is enhanced with words of wisdom from renowned golf course architects Pete Dye, Jay Morrish, Dr. Michael Hurdzon, and many others. In the final section, "The Finish," coverage includes the use of GIS in routing, presenting routing plans, and design changes that may lie ahead for golf courses. A unique look at the Cypress Point Club rounds out the reading.

From the Back Cover:

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, pioneers such as Allan Robertson and Old Tom Morris introduced a human touch to golf's playing board by purposefully laying out golf courses. Whereas fairways, hazards, and greens had until then been left to the forces of nature, these men began creating them out of the landscape. Courses were routed in ways other than "going out and coming in," as had been the trend in the earliest links layouts. The development of golf courses would be forever changed.

A consciousness of golf course design emerged, and with the opening in 1911 of the National Golf Links, designed by Charles Blair Macdonald, the science of golf architecture took another landmark step on an ever-evolving quest for the "ideal golf course." Routing the Golf Course continues this great tradition.
