Golf's Grand Design

"Golf's Grand Design" examines the history and role of American golf course architecture and explores the unique relationship between the people who play the game and the places where they play. Golf’s playing fields have recognizable characteristics – fairways, greens, bunkers, and water hazards-- but golf is the only sport played on a field with no specifically defined dimensions."Golf's Grand Design" focuses on golf course architecture from the 1880s through present day and highlights some of America’s best known and most influential courses.

The program was inspired by The Robert J. Stransky Foundation in collaboration with WNED-TV.
