One of the finest golf courses in America in the early 1900s was the revered Pinehurst No. 2, designed by the legendary Donald Ross and first opened in 1907. Physically and mentally demanding, the course gave players options on every hole and required them to envision and execute recovery shots from the sandy perimeters and the pine forests as well as think creatively around the intricate greens. As a result, No. 2 became a favorite of the nation's top amateurs and professionals. Unfortunately, a modernization of the course over the last four decades stripped it of much of its character. The Golden Age of Pinehurst is the story of the restoration of No. 2 from its slick and monochromatic presentation to a more natural potpourri of hardpan sand, wire grass, and the pine needles and pine cones so indigenous to the Sandhills of North Carolina. The job was entrusted to the design team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, whose work across America and the world has been heralded for its sympathetic use of the ground, its strategic appeal and its Old World flavor. Their understanding of golf history and the work of Donald Ross and their personal experiences in Pinehurst dating to the 1960s gave them a perspective ideal for such a challenging task. In The Golden Age of Pinehurst, Lee Pace chronicles the breathtaking restoration of No. 2 in great detail. Condition: Very good in very good dust jacket. Interior pages bright and clean.
