Detailed description Students of golf course architecture are well aware of Robert Hunter -- and it's all because of The Links. This scholarly work was different from other architecture books of the day because Hunter was not a designer attempting to attract commissions through his writing. His goal -- through the use of detailed drawings, contemporary photographs and thoughtful text -- was not only to explain what made the classic holes so great but why they would stand the test of time.
This exact reprint of The Linksbelongs in the libraries of all aficionados of golf course architecture.
