Written in 1927, this book features over 150 black-and-white photographs and drawings, including rare photos of Pine Valley, Pinehurst No.2, and Pebble Beach. One of the leading architects throughout the Golden Age of golf course construction in America, George C. Thomas, Jr. was responsible for the design of some of the most preeminent golf courses in southern California including links at Ojai, La Cumbre, Bel Air, and Riviera, among many others. Written shortly after the completion of the Riviera course in Los Angeles which was ranked 31st in Golf Digest's 2010 "100 Greatest Golf Courses in America", Golf Architecture in America is as much a fundamental text for the beginning golfer as it is for the seasoned expert. Good condition.
