Who Says You Can't Photograph Golf Courses in The Winter?
Not me, that's a certainty. I love golf courses. I think of them as creative collaborations between God, the course designer and the superintendent. We all owe our thanks to all three for the beautiful golfscapes we enjoy. Sometimes a golf course architect alters a property very little, placing his design comfortably into the existing landscape. In some cases the designer walks all over God's original intent, reshaping a property into something completely different from it's original form. But The Big Guy still has weather in his pocket as a way of putting in his two cents, and that's why I love shooting golf courses in the snow!
There has been no shortage of snow in Indianapolis this year, and I've been looking for an opportunity to do some shooting at Highland Golf & Country Club. Attempts to shoot the snow covered course early in the season didn't work out, but after our last big snowfall, I spent a couple of hours hiking around the course and came away with some wonderful images and a big smile. I love old golf courses, and this almost hundred year old Willie Parker, Jr. / Bill Diddel design is a great example, with mature trees lining the fairways and great grass throughout. Even under 10 inches of snow, the classic beauty of this course shines through. CLICK HERE to see all the snowy images of Highland Golf & Country Club.
