Turfgrass Science

Sand and Golf: How Terrain Shapes the Game, by George Waters, with a preface by Tom Doak.

Sand and Golf

This book explores what makes golf, and golf course architecture, so special on sandy terrain. Golf was born on sandy ground and the features of the game are a direct product of that terrain. Fairways and greens were derived from the naturally occurring areas of short grass found among the coastal dunes of Scotland.
