Riassunto:

The designers of golf’s "arenas" traditionally shared their views in imaginative and humorous ways. No fraternity of architects was more charismatic, literate, or entertaining than the characters who elevated golf architecture from the turn of the twentieth century until the Depression years ended the golf boom. The stories, quotes, and anecdotes in Lines of Charm reveal the brilliance of golf’s most fascinating and diverse assortment of characters, those master architects from golf’s Golden Age.

Geoff Shackelford is one of golf’s brilliant young writers. This, his fifth book, is his most unique project and will both educate and entertain all who read it. Lines of Charm boasts a broad array of images, drawings, maps, and cartoons from the early part of the century—the time when golf exploded in America and around the world.

Perfect for the serious golfer and historian and the casual weekend warrior.

Dal risvolto interno: No fraternity of characters was more charismatic, literate, or humorous than the architects practicing golf course design from the turn of the twentieth century until the Great Depression, when the golf boom came to an end. Culled from a variety of sources, the quotes, notes, and anecdotes included in Lines of Charm reveal the brilliance of the game’s most eccentric artists: the master architects from golf’s "Golden Age."

Lines of Charm is a compilation of the best things written by architects noted for their courses and their insights. Some names you will know; others may be unfamiliar. Illustrating the words are original drawings of famous holes, construction plans, architect caricatures, cartoons, advertisements, and other period pieces that reinforce our impressions of the dynamic and creative era in which these artists worked.

Ultimately, Lines of Charm is here to remind us how fortunate golf was to have so many rich, imaginative, and humorous minds breathing life into the early golf landscape.
