“Back-cover superlatives are often quite effusive in their praise. In this case…believe them.”
Classics of Golf’s The Life and Times of Donald Ross continues to receive high praise. The accolades continue to funnel in, the latest coming from the Journal of the Society of Hickory Golfers. In their Spring 2017 edition, reviewer Jim Davis goes out of his way to praise not only Buie’s meticulous research leading up to the book’s release, but the author’s ability to bring to light never-before-known facts about Ross himself.
“Buie realized he had compiled dozens of stories and background information on important courses and other topics that ‘…exceeded what was needed for a biographical narrative.’ Rather than filing them away, he decided to supplement the larger book with these vignettes. We are fortunate that he did so.”
Davis also praised Buie for giving golf fans everywhere the defintive look at Ross’s life and work.
“Ross was the epitome of reliability, expertise, and artistry. Author Chris Buie has teamed with the Classics of Golf group to create what may be the last word on this quietly efficient, hard working architect.”
