The third edition of the American Society of Golf Course Architects’ (ASGCA) An Environmental Approach to Golf Course Development has been released in Kindle eBook format and is available for purchase on Amazon.com. Focused on golf course development and permitting, the book also includes 18 unique case studies that provide real-life examples of recent projects which address key environmental issues such as water supply, wildlife habitat, wetlands protection and mitigation, and brownfield reclamation.
“The unique role that golf courses continue to play, in terms of providing environmental, social and economic value to their local community or region, is a message of utmost importance to our association and to the community at large” Rick Phelps, ASGCA president said. “Now, we are able to share our stewardship message with an even broader audience by offering our popular publication: An Environmental Approach to Golf Course Development through Amazon’s Kindle store.”
David Wogahn, president of eBook agency Sellbox.com, explains further: “We are identifying new publishing opportunities for businesses and associations to leverage the rapid consumer adoption of eReader devices like Kindle and iPad. Forward-thinking organizations know that in order to reach a 21st-century audience they need to produce their publications in eReader-friendly formats and offer them through eBook retailing stores.”
The Amazon Kindle edition is available for immediate purchase and can be read on Kindle, iPad, iPhone, PC, Mac, Android and Blackberry devices. A version for the Barnes & Noble Nook will be available in October.
