Thomas, George C., Jr
Golf Architecture in America: Its Strategy and Construction.
The Times-Mirror Press, Los Angeles, 1927. First edition of one of the most comprehensive books on the fundamentals of golf course construction written by one of the field's leading architects. Octavo, original green cloth, pictorial endpapers, illustrated throughout. Lengthily inscribed by the author on the verso of half-title page. Near fine in the original dust jacket which shows chips to the spine, front and rear panels. Rare in the dust jacket and inscribed.     One of the leading architects throughout the Golden Age of golf course construction in America, George C. Thomas, Jr. was responsible for the design of some of the most preeminent golf courses in southern California including links at Ojai, La Cumbre, Bel Air, and Riveria, among many others. Written shortly after the completion of the Riviera course in Los Angeles which was ranked 31st in Golf Digest's 2010 "100 Greatest Golf Courses in America", Golf Architecture in America is as much a fundamental text for the beginning golfer as it is for the seasoned expert.
