Golf Course Architecture, Second Edition is fully updated with more than fifty percent new material, including more than twenty-five recent innovations in the golf industry. Revealing both the art and science of golf course architecture, it takes readers inside the designer's mind through each step to designing a golf green, golf hole, and golf course. Beautifully illustrated with hundreds of full-color photographs, course maps, and drawings, this Second Edition explains the roots of ugliness and sources of beauty in courses, how the landscape communicates, and the connection between golfers and golf courses. Golf Course Architecture, Second Edition provides a wealth of accessible and helpful information on golf course architecture chronicling every facet of designing, building, renovating, and restoring a golf course.

MICHAEL J. HURDZAN, PhD, is a golf course architect based in Columbus, Ohio. He is the author of the bestselling book Golf Course Architecture: Design, Construction & Restoration (Wiley). He was the winner of the Golf Course Builders Association of America's 2002 Donald A. Rossi Award; Golf World magazine's 1997 Architect of the Year award; and The BoardRoom magazine's 1999 and 2001 selection for the same honor. Dr. Hurdzan has designed some of golf's most famous courses, including Devil's Pulpit and Devil's Paintbrush in Caledon, Ontario.
