From Library Journal
A time-honored adage of the sports world is that fundamentals come from the ground up, and Golf by Design literally exemplifies this statement. The author, an internationally acclaimed golf course architect, has produced a how-to work of considerable technical and artistic merit. The result is a well-written golfing masterpiece. Included are discussions of golf as analogous to chess and pool, as well as instructional line drawings that simplify the most difficult scenarios. Spectacular color photographs of 60 of the world's most challenging courses further enhance this one-of-a-kind guide that is likely to become a classic. Highly recommended for most public libraries.

If you like course architecture, this one is pretty interesting.
I found Golf by Design to be really helpful in giving me the insight to read a course right off the bat and often saving me the wasted shots. It has also helped me appreciate the design and layout of the course that much more.
I would also recommend it to beginners as a great introduction into 'course management'
