ASCGA Past President Bob Cupp, ASCGA Fellow and Ron Whitten, "Golf Digest" magazine's architecture editor and 1996 winner of the ASGCA Donald Ross Award, have written a companion book for the PBS documentary “GOLF’S GRAND DESIGN.” The book is available here.

Golf's playing fields have recognizable characteristics – fairways, greens, bunkers, and water hazards – but golf is the only sport played on a field with no specifically defined dimensions. "GOLF'S GRAND DESIGN" focuses on golf course architecture from the 1880s through present day and highlights some of America's best known and most influential courses.

The book is published through a grant by the Robert J. Stransky Foundation and utilizing the assistance of the ASGCA Foundation.
