Photographer David Cannon began his career in sports photography twenty-five years ago and is considered the premier golf photographer in the world.
Cannon's GOLF COURSES: FAIRWAYS OF THE WORLD photographs with a true golfer's eye, offering an extraordinary window into some of the world's most celebrated courses. More than 40 in North America, dozens in Asia and the South Pacific, and several in both Africa and the Middle East are explored.
Savor a view from the 11th hole of the incomparable and historic St. Andrews's Old Course bathed in golden afternoon light; glimpse giraffes and elephants from any green at Leopard Creek, South Africa; vicariously experience Pirate's Plank, the harrowing 15th hole at Cape Kidnappers, New Zealand, which is set at the very end of the clifftop fairway surrounded by dramatic 500-foot drops to the ocean; and take in the serene sea view from the signature 18th hole of the very private Seminole Golf Course in Florida. Golf Courses stunningly captures the singular genius and beauty of golf courses.
This is a comprehensive collection of the world's best courses by revered designers including Donald Ross, Pete Dye, and Robert Trent Jones, Sr., and such new talent as Steve Smyers and Tom Doak, among many others—all of whom skillfully orchestrate the exceptional union of nature and course design on five continents.
