World Atlas of Golf Available from Ball State University Libraries

Amen to That:  Golf Course Maps at Ball State University Libraries

The Masters Tournament, better known as "The Masters," begins this week at the Augusta National Golf Club.  The Ball State University Libraries has unique cartographic resources for research and learning, and one such resource is the World Atlas of Golf available from the Atlas Collection on the second floor of Bracken Library.

The atlas was created by Mark Rowlinson and published in 2008.  It features computer-generated maps of golf courses around the world—from St. Andrews in Scotland to Casa De Campo in the Dominican Republic.  An entire section of the atlas is dedicated to maps of the Augusta National Golf Course.  The famous feature, “Amen Corner,” is featured (above, click to enlarge).

Atlases may be circulated for 28 days or longer.  For more information, please contact the GIS Research and Map Collection in Bracken Library at 765-285-1097.
