Default The Golf Course Photo Thread

Post some pics of courses you've played (preferably pics you or someone in your group shot). I'll start with my favorite - the 18th hole at Entrada in St. George, Utah.

16th hole at Cypress Point. I have been lucky enough to get to play it twice actually.

18th Hole at The Reserve in Oregon. There's a plaque on the side of the fairway here commemorating Craig Stadler knocking in a double eagle a few years back.



14th at coeurdalene resort in Idaho




Killer Par 3 at Coeurdalene. 16/18 all have middle-flowing fairways, flat greens, etc., and 2/18 are virtually impossible. Case in point.



Another pretty par 3



Pumpkin Ridge, North Plains, Oregon

HP, I can't get the "case in point" picture in your post to load for whatever reason. The rest of your pics are stellar, although Pumpkin Ridge looks like a mediocre muni in that shot IMO.

IIRC Entrada was a course in Links LS.

stadler, pretty sick brag post about playing CP a couple of times.

I don't think I've ever taken a camera onto a golf course in my life, so these yammering comments is all I got. Sorry.

Hey Porter,

I assume you take a boat out to the green at 14 at Coeur D'Alene? How does that work?

I haven't had any problems with the "case in point." It's a killer par 3. Shaped like a ninja star with EXTREMELY narrow points, all edges of the green slope off, it's 80% surrounded by that giant trap you see except for the very back, that slopes off to a cliff. My usual draw didn't draw, and plopped it into the trap in the far back. Second shot off the tee (for kicks) landed on top of those rocks and went god knows where.

As for the Pumpkin Ridge shot, it's a couple of things: one, it's just a bad shot. Two, that was taken in early March and the course wasn't in the best of shape. That shot is also of Ghost Creek, which is the public side, and the admittedly don't take as good a care of it as they do the private.

They've got a little ferry boat on a cable. When the group in front of you gets on to come back in, you hit, and take the ferry back out, leaving your clubs. That green is crazy. It's also on a cable, and they can vary the yardage between something like 115-180 yards. We played it at 155, and it was windy as hell. I managed to hit it, though.

HP,

The pic works now for some reason but I tried multiple times before.

Yeah, that's a beautiful but goofy hole. Every hole needs a bail-out or "safe" area and that doesn't seem to have one.

Also, regarding the movable green: that is quite a feat of engineering, and I wonder what sort of maintenance it entails because it would seem to me to be the type of thing that would break down really easily.

Is the green actually "floating" so that it could move with enough force? Like if the wind picked up over the water would it change your putting line, or is it on some kind of submerged track?
