    1. This book is an interesting look into the thoughts of one of, if not the single best golf course designer of all time, but much of the book is devoted to the nuts and bolts of course construction in the first half of the 20th century. Descriptions of how to move rocks, build greens, etc. drag down much of the second half of the book.

    2. Legendary architect of Pinehurst #1locally he designed Baltimore Forest, C.C. of Asheville, Grove Park, Hendersonville C.C etc. Great local history

    3. Poorly written but beautifully communicated. A must read for anyone who loves great golf architecture and/or the history of the game. A necessary compendium to better understand your round at Royal Dornoch or Pinehurst #2.

    4. Donald Ross is my hero in golf course architecture. Getting a view into his private writings is fascinating for me. The book is merely a compilation of his writings, so it's probably interesting to most. I loved it, but I can't imagine most people getting into how much sand Ross thought bunkers should have, etc
