Editorial Reviews

Review

"....celebrates the most renowned golf clubhouses built from the late nineteenth century and into the 1930s, giving us a look behind golf high society.... the 141-page book charts the history of golf clubhouses and highlights the golden age of clubhouse architecture with stunning visual imagery." -Rogers & Cowan

"This book is a treasure of photos, architectural plans, and tales of the beloved 19th hole where ever memorable game ends and the camaraderie continues." ~Bask Magazine
 
"Gorgeous tome from Rizzoli" -Colorado Avid Golfer
 
"Diedrich gives the reader an insider’s view of these singular grand golf structures—their grounds, and the dining, sitting, and club rooms---distinguished not only for their architectural beauty, but also for how they are symbolic of a particular golf club’s identity. This book is the perfect give for avid golf enthusiasts." -GoGolfandTravel

"Richard J. Friedrich has created a book that pays worthy homage to this oft-overlooked piece of golf club's identity. Through the use of illustrations, magnificent color photographs, and watercolor site plans created by the author, Friedrich captures the beauty, history, tradition and myster of institutions.....a superb Father's Day gift." -Met Golfer
