Coming Soon ... My Book

I don't update this site very much any more and I would recommend anyone coming here go to the index on the upper left and begin to wade through years of writing on golf design.

Some time this summer, I expect to publish my book on Stanley Thompson's five greatest works: Jasper Park, Banff Springs, St. George's, Capilano and Cape Breton Highlands. My goal is for the start of this golf season, but don't know the timing on process. The book will talk about how each project came about and share what the courses looked like around opening. There are approximately 400 images and plans in the book. I also touch on Stanley Thompson's architectural evolution as a designer and share some thoughts on his design techniques and philosophy. This has been a labour of love.

It is written and being reviewed by friends who will let me know whether I have something worth publishing, whether it needs work, or whether I should work on home renovations instead.

The title is a quote from Geoff Cornish on Stan.
