    “He should, above all, have a sense of proportion and be able to come to a prompt decision as to what is the greatest good to the greatest number.”
    Alister MacKenzie

    Psychology of Design
    “The designer of a course should start off on his work in a sympathetic frame of mind for the weak, and at the same time be as severe as he likes with the first-class player.”
    H.S. Colt

    The Design Process
    “The course should be so interesting that even the plus man is constantly stimulated to improve his game in attempting shots he has hitherto been unable to play.”
    Alister MacKenzie

    Greens and Greenkeeping
    “The plagues of Egypt seem but slight evils in comparison with the trials sometimes experienced by the keen and anxious greenkeeper.”
    H.S. Colt
