After several months of searching for this type approach to golf course analysis, his is the only book I’ve found available generally to the golfing public -- also at a reasonable price. I had started to assemble information similar to his book when I discovered the book. He has saved me hours (perhaps days) in drawing a mental image of how Virginia Golf Courses compare to each other. By my count he has about 200 Virginia Golf Courses listed in the database section (an accomplishment in itself). Of those, he has approx. 105 listed in the specific and independent review section – this section offers his perspective and also accumulates and summarizes the various reviews found in Golf Digest, Golf Week, Golf Styles, etc.
My only suggestion or hope would be that in future publications Mr. Hatcher could add to the specific and independent review section. Not a criticism, because 105 is an accomplishment, especially since it appears he has played about every course and does have “another life”. I would just like to see a few more of the golf courses around Charlottesville and Lynchburg and perhaps a little further south towards the Smith Mountain Lake area. I love the courses such as Poplar Grove, the Sneed Designed Course north of Lynchburg near Amherst, nestled into in the foothills with beautiful scenery and tranquil settings. I would like to hear what others have to say about them.
Bottom line, if you want a good guide to picking courses in Virginia, add this book to your collection and pencil in your favorites and comments as you go along.
