After profiling St. Andrews—the links that is the birthplace of the game—and 50 other classic links in the British Isles, the authors visit the courses in other parts of the world. They also examine how links design has become hot again, thanks to a revival of British-style course architecture and the fact that they’re more eco-friendly than traditional courses. Throughout, esteemed golf photographer Iain Lowe’s gorgeous images show the world’s best 246 links in all their glory.
