Copiously illustrated throughout with photos, instructional drawings and diagrams, GOLD BY DESIGN teaches golfers how to analyse each hole from a designer's perspective - how to beat the course by outwitting its architect. From tee to green to rough, Jones leads golfers through every step of a course designers strategy, detailing how they use optical illusions, elevation changes, forced carries, trees, sand and even different types of grass to challenge a golfer's playing skills. He then presents expert strategies for counter-attack - from constructing the ideal approach shot to taking advantage of the wind and playing across water. GOLF BY DESIGN provides novice golfers with invaluable insights into all of the basic, crucial elements of strategy and technique. At the same time the book offers seasoned players the inside knowledge they need for lowering their handicap and permanently improving their game.

Disappointing, way too ABC- beginner baby talk. I was hoping for a book that would explain how to critically examine fairways and how to read greens and course architecture that influences how one plays a hole. Was hoping for in depth ideas from course designer's point of view that would help my golf game. Instead you get many pages on types of grass and depths of bunkers and courses that dad (Robert Trent Jones Sr.) designed.
