Very pleased.

Excellent companion piece to the book written by Clifford Roberts. These two book-end texts are must haves for those who have a high interest in the Masters tournament.

Bought this book as a coffee table picture book showing Augusta's beauty and when I received it came to find the entire thing (except the cover) is in black and white! Waste of money.

I was hoping for color photos, but still a decent book for an office.

I am having a hard time finding a book on Augusta with color pictures. The black and white pictures don't come close to illustrating the beauty of the course. My search continues.

The book is full of history, lots of interesting facts and many diagrams and old photographs that really tell the story of Augusta National. I especially enjoyed Alister Mackenzie's philosophies on how the golf course was designed and layed out. Fantastic!

good book
Tells a great detailed story of a magical place, but the writing style is juvenile and lacks organization
