GOLF ART
Watercolor Landscapes
GOLF BOOK
Limited Edition US $145 S&N

 
Seasons fade, beautiful landscapes lose their color and the light dies,
but paintings live. Time has its’ ways as paintings their own.

Paintings have the ability to pleasurably alter one’s sense of reality.
They can heighten reality, separate reality by exciting
your imagination and extend reality by evoking a memory.

The paintings are art for every day.

Watercolor Paintings and Insights from the Artist on the

DANGEROUS  BEAUTY

of Modern Golf Course Design
 
Samuel Ingwersen, AIA, Artist/Author

You will enjoy Sam’s 145 watercolors of gorgeous golf course landscapes. They are not only a delight, but they illustrate the authors’ argument of how contrived landscape effects in pursuit of memorable looks have become a “dangerous beauty” and a danger to the game. A movement to improve visual looks started in the late Victorian Era and has now gone too far. Ten million US players have recently quit playing and the industry is baffled.

The game of golf has endured for 500 years. Yet the game, as a players’ game, is now in peril. This revolutionary book is about course aesthetics, game structure and how landscape effects have negatively impacted the enjoyment of the game. The book is an intriguing story of the allure of beauty and it's seduction of the game.
