Default Photo Challenge #122 ~ Let's Talk Golf {04/12/2011}

The weather didn't cooperate with my planned challenge, and DH offered some suggestions that were either tongue-in-cheek or not really practical. He did accidentally provide the inspiration, though, as he was listening to the commentary on the US Masters on the radio in bed.
You don't have to use golf; golf terminology in other contexts is fine - so we have the possibilities of iron, wood, green, bunkers (plenty of WW2 bunkers when I worked in Guernsey), rough, sand, eagles (an albatross isn't likely, alas)...and not having a sporting bone in my body that's about as far as I can go. But if you tell me it's golfing related, I'll believe you. I guess plaids and checks and typical golfing clothing are good too.

Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ You can jump in and start any of the photo challenges at anytime..
~ Again - HAVE FUN

A birdie, holed in one - sometimes I see a pigeon perched in this hole in the quays along the river. I was lucky to spot him yesterday. It doesn't seem to be a drainage hole, in that I've never seen water come out of even on wet days, so I guess it's a nice dry shelter for the birds.
Green...
DH doesn't play golf, pitch and putt is as far as he's gone, so this isn't a grown-up club, just one of his little ones.

Sabrina, did you know that I live right around the corner from a golf course? I guess this challenge shouldn't be too hard for me!

I live less than a half hours drive from Pinehurst, NC. My family went to the Pinehurst Country Club and looked at the beautiful greens of Pinehurst #2 while there. There are some of the pictures I took that day. They were taken before the challenge, I hope that's okay. ~ Pam

Wow Pam, that is one majestic golf course! All your photos are wonderful. I love the clock and the putter boy, but my oh my!....those clothes are outlandish. I'd sure love to see someone wear those wild shorts!
BTW, how did you manage to upload 5 photos to one post? I always thought 3 was the limit.

The number of attachments changed quite recently, within the last month or so.
I like the putter boy and the clothes best - wonderful fabrics!!

I took a walk onto the golf course this evening as the sun was getting low in the sky. This is a small local golf course that was created from a horse pasture, so nothing even resembling the fancy high class course that Pam showed in her photos! Keep in mind also, that our grass is still a winter brown....we need a couple of warm rains to green everything up. Photo 1. The sign at the 3rd hole, then a small water hazard, next a close up of the aerated grass on the green, and the last one is the sand trap, taken towards the sun, so it's a bit hazy.

I like those - they do look more like autumn than spring, though. Our grass is on its third cut already - a lot of other things suffered from our snow, though.
The aerated grass one is amazing - I've never seen that before.

Ina, those are neat shots. Wednesday I hope to get some photos of this rather unusual golf course.

Here are my golf pictures. I think this "course" is used mostly by winter visitors in Apache Junction which is about an hour or so east of me.

Wow! That certainly looks like a desert to me! Looks like the whole golf course is a sand trap!

Indeed - I've certainly never seen a golf course like that before. not even in any of DH's computer games. Amazing!
