Perry Duke Maxwell was a man that saw, lived and made history in the first half of the twentieth century. But he is unknown to the average citizen. He grew up and moved to Oklahoma when it became a state and lived through both the state’s greatest and worst years, from the oil boom to the dust bowl. He was a man that suffered through personal hardship after personal hardship beginning with the death of his love in the prime of their lives. He dealt with poor health his entire life from tuberculosis to cancer, which eventually took his life. But he turned every tragedy into a positive and excelled in a career where he became one of the greatest golf course architects in history. The Midwest Associate explores his life and his work in the arena of golf course design with detail looks at his supreme efforts, including his own course at Dornick Hills in Ardmore, Oklahoma. This is the first published work that looks at Maxwell’s career as a whole and examines his inspirations, his philosophy and his technique of laying out golf courses. Maxwell often is overlooked when the masters of golf course architecture are listed, this book provides a solid argument to including him in any pantheon of this profession.
