"The restored paintings by Harry Rountree are simply outstanding. Darwin had a wonderful feel for what makes a good golf hole.. so in a way, this book is his textbook for golf course architecture”. Ben Crenshaw

On the 100th Anniversary of this unique golf collaboration by Bernard Darwin and Harry Rountree, Tri-Horn International releases the first corrected version of "The Golf Courses of the British Isles" in 100 years.
A niche publisher of golf and outdoor books, Tri-Horn has carefully restored each of Rountree's 64 classic paintings. Rountree's diverse subjects and paintings capture the game as it was exploding on the British Isles and "across the Atlantic" at the turn-of-the-century. The color eBook, with a Foreword by Ben Crenshaw, makes this golf classic available and accessible to a new generation of golfers, providing a real window into the game as it was developing from 1860-1915.
Using traditional techniques, and state-of-the-art technologies, developers have painstakingly returned the vibrancy, shadows and colours to the 64 images found in the book (which had been battered by time). Also included in this edition is a painting of "Scotty", by Anne-Marie Bouvier which heads the 9th chapter of the book.
