There is still time to order that last-minute gift for the golfer in your life. Just published, is “The Ultimate Round – Pebble Beach Golf Links: An Illustrated Guide to America’s Majestic Dream Course,” by Joann Dost, who also produced the photos.
“Pebble Beach and Joann Dost – a pair of American treasures,” says Jim Nantz, CBS sportscaster and Pebble Beach resident. “This book brings you as close to actually playing this classic seaside links course as only Joann can. Enjoy all the majesty of this hole-by-hole experience.”
Featuring a foreword by Jim Dodson and an introduction by Neal Hotelling, the author captures the beauty of this magnificent course in her stunning hole-by-hole photographs and state-of-the-art digital graphics. The coffee table book also includes numerous quotes from golf greats, along with special sections on Spyglass Hill Golf Course and The Links at Spanish Bay. There’s also a portfolio of Pebble Beach Golf Links photos along with features on The Pebble Beach Golf Academy, The Lone Cypress, and 17-Mile Drive.
“Joann’s fresh approach in showing the magic of Pebble Beach Golf Links with her new, dramatic photography, detailed graphics, personal insights, and brief narratives, is a perfect blend,” said Hotelling, award-winning author and authority on the history of the iconic golf venue. “Her book illustrates why Pebble Beach is a ‘must play course’ for every golfer.”
The 102-year-old golf course has stood the test of time, and still remains one of the top tracks in the country. That’s why golfers don’t mind shelling out a whopping $495 for a round of golf. It’s truly a bucket-list item that needs to be checked off any golfer’s list. The photos in this book will make you want to visit this iconic west coast treasure on the Pacific Ocean 120 miles south of San Francisco.
