The Seventh at St. Andrew. has been added to your Cart Mr. Gummer brings the entire process of course building to life and his book is populated with larger than life characters

The Seventh at St. has been added to your Cart. If you are interested in how a golf course is designed, then this book would be of interest. But it's not laid out in the most logical of ways in my opinion. It is kind of confusing that there are 18 chapters that start by detailing the 18 holes on the course but the descriptions start before the discussion of the course itself. I could even live with that but then there are 22 chapters total. Mr. Gummer brings the entire process of course building to life and his book is populated with larger than life characters. A great read and a perfect present for any golfer.
