From the Green Mountains of Vermont to the Sandy soil of Cape Cod, and from the commuter-rail corridor of Connecticut to the rugged backwoods of Maine, THE GOLF COURSES OF NEW ENGLAND explores the greatest designs across the oldest corner of the United States.

This book showcases and celebrates the great courses of the region—public and private, old and new—by combining gorgeous photographs by Patrick Koenig, with informative and entertaining writing about each course. 

A survey of the best courses in New England, from the classics of The Country Club, Yale, Myopia Hunt, and Newport, to the lesser-known gems of Hooper and Ekwanok, to the newer masterpieces of Boston Golf Club, Old Sandwich, and Shelter Harbor.
