Tri-Horn International has restored & retouched Rountree's 64 exceptional watercolours, oils & charcoals bringing them back to life after a century of neglect. Now available ina portable and accessible color eBook format you can take a golfing journey with Harry Rountree and Bernard Darwin as they travel the classic courses of Scotland, England, Ireland & Wales on a trip unparalleled in golfing history. Darwin's prose will bring you back to the time when Old Tom Morris, Allan Robertson, James Braid, Edward Ray and others were the European standard bearers of the game. The 64 old world paintings are worth the price of admission. 2-time Masters Champion Ben Crenshaw notes in his Foreword as a practicing golf course architect myself, I find this book insightful in describing the concepts of strategic design. Darwin had a wonderful feel for what makes a good golf hole. This was second nature to him, so in a way, this book is his textbook for golf course architecture. Darwin's depiction of some of the lost and legendary courses will captivate the reader. Rountrees paintings evoke what can be described as realistic impressionism. Golfing moments, as well as the golfing environment are captured with his brush in ways many seasoned golfers have experienced. (Paintings are best viewed at "medium brightness")
