BeschreibungHarry Shapland Colt is one of the greatest golf-course architects. Having designed or influenced the layout of many of the world's most famous golf courses - Muirfield, Pine Valley, Wentworth - Colt's creations provide an enduring, pulse-racing test for golfers. This title tells the story of this golf visionary.
PortraitPeter Pugh is a businessman, company historian and former golf addict, with memberships at Royal Lytham and Royal Worlington (two of Colt's courses). His other books include The Magic of a Name, a three-volume history of Rolls-Royce, and two titles in Icon's famous Introducing series, on Margaret Thatcher and John Maynard Keynes.
