The Player's View St George's Hill


Commissioned in St George’s Hill’s centenary year through subscription by the club and its members, and written by William fforde (Editor, The Pocket Guide to Golf Courses), The Player’s View: St George’s Hill covers the history of the design of the original two 18 hole courses developed by W G Tarrant and laid out by H S Colt, and describes its post-WW2 conversion into today’s 27 hole complex.  


The images (which include 27 double page spreads, one for each hole), all taken from the player’s view, are accompanied by a text that recounts the biography of Colt and why St George’s Hill remains such a clear statement of the design philosophy of one of the world’s greatest ever course designers, at the height of his powers.

The book is enhanced by a Foreword from NZ tour-player-turned-course-designer, Greg Turner.
