American Park Builders



18 pp. Illustrations from photographs. 18.5x9.5 cm (7¼x3¾") original printed wrappers. First Edition.

Section headings include: "The Science of Golf Course Design" and "The Construction of a Golf Course". This brochure was put out by the American Park Builders, which was a consortium of landscape architects, engineers and field supervisors. Tom Bendelow, famous golf course architect, was associated with this group. The brochure contains a "partial" list of approximately 600 golf courses designed or built by Tom Bendelow or by the American Park Builders, hence an important reference document. Not in Donovan & Jerris nor in the 2013 copy of Alistair Johnston's Library of Golf.
