About This Book

 A limited-edition, oversize book containing spectacular photographs-including five-foot-wide foldout panoramas-of the best golf courses from the far reaches of Great Britain and Ireland.  This volume showcases stunning panoramic views of nearly one hundred of the most extraordinary historic golf courses: from the incomparable and venerated St. Andrews to the spectacular heaths of Carnoustie Golf Links, Scotland, and from glimpses of grazing sheep at Royal North Devon Golf Club to the rocky coastal vistas of Turnberry Resort. It features over three hundred sumptuous color photographs in full spreads and gatefolds-some measuring over five feet. The images capture the exceptional union of nature and course design, and the singular and unparalleled beauty of the legendary links of England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. Golf Courses: Great Britain and Ireland is the ultimate luxury gift book of 2011.

Reviews

    "A sure hit for any golfer, but also enticing for a non-golfing “caddy” seeking breathtaking natural beauty and exceptional design." ~VANDM.com
