    Patrick Drickey is thankful for the visual treats he gets to photograph — some of the greatest golf courses in the world. But Drickey, whose new book "Green Glory: A Visual Tribute To The Courses Of The Majors — Golf's Renowned Venues" hit shelves a few months ago, realizes his photographs wouldn't be nearly as stunning if it wasn't for the work of golf course superintendents and their crews.

    "My whole world and the success of my world hinges on the great work by superintendents everywhere," Drickey said.

    The 250-page "Green Glory" (Stonehouse Publishing) features photographs by Drickey and paintings by Linda Hartough. Augusta National, Pebble Beach, Oakmont Country Club, Atlanta Athletic Club ... they are all there in their, well, green glory. The photographs and paintings are accompanied by text and statistics about the courses.

    "Green Glory" also features an "In Recognition of Golf Course Superintendents" spread written by golf course architect Rees Jones.

    "It's certainly a book that sings the praises of what superintendents and their staffs bring to the game," Drickey says.

    If you want this book for free, you need to answer this question:

    Who won the fight between Happy Gilmore and Bob Barker in the classic golf film "Happy Gilmore?" First one to send me the answer at laylward@mooserivermedia.com wins the book.
