Book Description:

Year after year when you scan the list of Canada’s top 100 golf courses, it’s amazing to note that a half century after his death, Stanley Thompson still has more courses on the list than any other golf course architect. Even more astounding is the fact that of the top 10 courses, Thompson accounts for four…twice as many as the next in line!

The Golf Courses of Stanley Thompson helps to reveal the magic of this genius through the remarkable panoramic photography of Mike Bell and the captivating stories of Canada’s finest golf writers.

Twenty five of Thompson’s most celebrated courses, including St. George’s, Jasper, Banff, Capilano and Highlands Links, are fully profiled in pictures and words. In addition, eleven mini essays explore the fascinating life and reveal a few unheard stories of this ‘larger than life’ character. This book is essential reading for anyone who is drawn to the mystical allure of golf and would enjoy a country-wide tour exploring the timeless creations of a great Canadian visionary—Stanley Thompson.
