Show synopsis This book reveals the true genius of the Augusta National Golf Club like no other--documenting its original design, chronicling the architectural and design changes over time, and analyzing the philosophies of its creators, Alister MacKenzie and Bobby Jones. The Augusta National Golf Club will help you understand why the course has a reputation of legendary proportion and how MacKenzie single-handedly changed forever the way courses are built. Stan Byrdy, a longtime Augusta resident, has unearthed never-before-published photographic evidence of how the course looked in the 1930s, researched and documented the numerous changes made to it, and has provided the definitive work that answers the question of why Augusta National is the course that every golfer wants to play. Illustrator William Lanier III gives you side-by-side renderings of the original holes and the current layout.
