A one-stop reference for golf course hazards
You are holding a book about inconveniences. But, unlike thoseunpleasant interruptions in life when we bite into a sourstrawberry or encounter a pothole that costs us an expensive newtire, the interruptions covered here lead a dual life. While theyare inconvenient on the surface, they are essential to the core.They force decisions. The correct routes will bring triumph andeven fame. The bad choices will bring ruin and even long-termfears. The risky paths—whether conquered orfailed—intensify the experience.
As every golfer knows, hazards are the heart and soul of thegame of golf. Hazards come in all shapes, sizes, andconfigurations, from sand bunkers and waste areas to lakes andnatural watercourses. Their placement and use in design are themost defining components of a golf course. In Bunkers, Pits &Other Hazards, authors and golf course designers Forrest Richardsonand Mark Fine provide a single-source reference for anyone chargedwith caring for or overseeing the improvement of a golf course.Tracing the history, planning, psychology, design, construction,and maintenance associated with all forms of hazards, this singleresource offers a comprehensive catalog of the world's most famoushazards.

This sincere effort by Mark Fine and Forrest Richardson is fluid and easy for the seasoned or casual golfer to follow or for any one else just wanting to gather some excellent reference material for a discussion. Not unlike Tom Doak's book, "The Anatomy of A Golf Course" I find this book complimentary and perfect to grab off the shelf and quickly locate excerpts which are very useful for discussions with clients and in reassuring my own thoughts and insights. Given the comprehensive research that went into compiling this book along with the countless sketches and photos, I believe it may become one of the more complete and valuable resources on bunkers and other related hazards for the game of golf. I particularly enjoyed the section that interviews golf architects and think this information will be quite insightful to the lay person, helping them to better understand these hazards, their origin, their intent, the architects who use them and hopefully allow them to appreciate the great golf courses of the world.
S. Witter, Golf Architect
Rarely will golfers agree on what is a good hazard and what is a bad one, except that it is a good one if ones opponent is in it, and it is a bad one if it is oneself. And that tends to be as erudite as it becomes when a hazard is being debated. Bunkers Pits & Other Hazards provides the historical background of hazards, the philosophies behind the great architects of the past, and of some of the current thinkers in the business of designing golf courses, when it comes to hazards. This is a book that gives one the "how" and "why" of bunkers, and as far as is possible with such a topic, the "when". It is book full of knowledge and to a large extent it is also a reference book for students of the game. For all of this it is still very readable.
