Reviews - What do customers think about Lost Links: Forgotten Treasures of Golf's Golden Age?
An excellent follow-up to "Missing Links" Apr 3, 2007
"Lost Links" is an excellent follow-up to "Missing Links". This book is laid out in a similar format as "Missing Links" but this book covers more courses with less descriptions per each course (in general). I found the descriptions of Augusta National's original design and the description of Royal Palms worth the price of this book by themselves.
If you don't have either book, I suggest starting with "Missing Links", which I found slightly more interesting, and then moving on to this one. If you have read "Missing Links" and enjoyed it, I highly recommend purchasing "Lost Links".
Incredible Nov 16, 2004
Golf Architecture at it's best!!! This book truly reveals some of the lost links of the golden age of golf. Such links as Baldwin Hills Golf Club, California Country Club, and the Glen Oaks Country Club. This book will give you insight into some of the great classic courses.
