  • “This pictorial journey across 80 golf courses around the globe is the ideal fantasy playground for the golf aficionado. Sports photographer David Cannon captures courses that range from oceanside to marshy to mountains, and the perspective on these green panoramas is enough to make any golfer pack his bags—and his clubs.” ~Palm Beach Illustrated
     
    “[A] handsome, full-color, foldout-rich love letter to the world’s great golf courses, written through the wide-angle lens of his trusty camera… This is golf porn in its best possible light, so savor it, guilt-free.” ~Fairways + Greens
     
    “Cameron is the official shuttermeister for the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, so he had access to some not-so-easy-to-get-into courses, like Pine Valley and Seminole.” ~Quest
     
    “Photographer David Cannon began his career in sports photography 25 years ago and is considered the premier golf photographer in the world. Having played more than 700 courses in over 40 countries, Cannon photographs with a true golfer’s eye, offering an extraordinary window into some of the world’s most celebrated courses.” ~Rosewood
