This lavish limited-edition volume showcases stunning panoramic views of nearly one hundred of the most extraordinary golf courses in the world: from the incomparable and historic St. Andrews, Scotland, to the spectacular new Le Touesrok Golf Course on the island of le Aux Cerfs in the Indian Ocean; from the glimpses of African wildlife at Leopard Creek, South Africa to the breathtaking coastal vistas of Pebble Beach, California. It features courses from the deserts of the United States to the tropical jungles of Asia; and from the ultra-private, never-before-seen clubs to courses made famous by publicly viewed, professional golf tournaments. Golf Courses' photographs display the exceptional union of nature and course design. This deluxe book features over two hundred sumptuous color photographs in full spreads and gatefolds-some measuring over five feet in length!-and includes a numbered print signed expressly by the artist.
