A magnificent verdant “wall” or artful themed grouping. This historical collection, circa 1975,
first appeared in Golf Digest Magazine and later featured in several other sports media as well as numerous TV talk shows.
These works have also reputed historical significance regarding modern golf course design.
World Class golf course architect Pete Dye had this to say about the “18 Infamous Golf Holes“.
“Bud’s innovative thinking certainly influenced many designers to make the contours a little steeper and the bunkers a little deeper and generally to think outside the box with new designs, and, in that way Bud made a great contribution to the game.”
This unique series will enchant collectors and engage golfing audience.
