In an effort to step up my photo game this year I am pleased to share 10 of my favourite golf images over the past year. With a healthy layer of snow already in southern Ontario I hope this brings back good memories from your 2016 golf season and stokes the fire of anticipation for 2017!
The story: Given that these are two pictures of the same hole I don’t feel like I am breaking the rules too much. The third hole at Banff Springs is my second favourite par 5 I have ever played (Highlands Links #7 gets top honours) and these views give you a good idea why. While the 4th hole (see Banff Springs – part 1) gets proper accolades this is a highly underrated golf hole. The sheer magnitude of the Rockies set against the expansiveness of this par 5 was incredible to experience. I was blessed with a perfect morning for pictures and took full advantage. The top image looks back from behind the green and the lower image was taken as I rounded the subtle dog leg and could see the green. This courses is what bucket lists were meant for.
To all my readers, a very Merry Christmas, joyous and safe holidays and my best wishes to you and yours for a healthy and prosperous 2017.
In friendship, Mike
