Summary

The Missing Links : America's Greatest Lost Golf Courses and Holes


While it's hard to imagine that famed Pebble Beach Golf Links would ever be dug up and turned into a residential community, similar fates have happened to other great courses in the past. Thankfully, due to the exhaustive research of Daniel Wexler, the full details on 27 of these exceptional layouts can be found in The Missing Links: America's Greatest Lost Golf Courses & Holes . Through the use of period photographs and detailed maps, Wexler takes the reader on a hole-by-hole guided tour of some of the most famous courses--designed by some of America's most famous architects--that no longer exist. Alister MacKenzie's Sharp Park GC in California (washed away in a Pacific storm), William Langford's Key West GC in Florida (destroyed by a hurricane), and Charles Blair Macdonald's Lido Club (sold to developers during the Depression) are but three of the classic courses that can be "played" once more.
