You need to sell this as a poster or something.  I'd buy one. Amazing.

Spot of breakfast before teeing off this morning. Looking across the practice putting and chipping greens to Table Mountain and Devil's Peak. Steenberg Golf Club, Cape Town, South Africa.

The signature 7th at Hawktree Golf Course in Bismarck, ND. It really is "prairie golf" at its finest. A double dogleg with a blind down hill tee shot. It is without a doubt one of my favorite holes I have ever played. Notice the black bunker surrounding the water hazard on the left side of the image. It is black coal slag, a product of the coal production in North Dakota.

The par-3 3rd hole at Hawktree. This view is from one of the forward sets of tees, which gives you an actual view of the hole. The back tees are behind the crest of the hill, making this a blind tee shot. This added to the elevation change and the narrow landing area with a front pin placement make this an extremely difficult short par-3.

The par-3 3rd at Tomahawk Lake Country Club in Deadwood, SD. Definitely not the most difficult course or the best conditioned I have ever played, but probably one of the more intriguing layouts. It cuts through the Black Hills near Deadwood. When we played this, we had let a group play through. Everything was so still that when the group cleared the green, they waved and said "thanks" and it sounded like they were standing right next to us. Playing this course at dusk gave it an even more unique, almost surreal, feel.

This is a picture of the 6th hole at my home course in South Dakota. This was taken back when I was on the grounds crew and I was mowing greens at about 5:45am on a Saturday morning. I always love the feeling of being the only person on the course: either the first one on the course, watching the Sun come up, or...

the last one on the course, watching the Sun go down, as was the case here on the 11th hole. You can see here how hard the weather was on the fairways. We had a lot of problems with Poa growing in early in the summer thanks to cool, wet weather and then was scorched when the hot, dry weather showed up. Even though it isn't the nicest course in the world and wasn't in the best shape, it is always going to be "home" to me and I think this picture gives a bit of an idea of why I love it so much.

Good call on the "summer" thing. Though the winter was rather mild this year. I was able to get out about 5 times in December and 7 times in January at home in northern SD. They weren't exactly ideal conditions (generally mid-40s, though we hit 63 one day in January) but at that time of year, we take what we can get. I'll see if I can find more pictures for you.

Fantastic picture and golf hole. Immediately identifialble as a C. B. MacDonald design. Very engineered look but cool none the less.

Most of these are from my iPhone camera (so not so good).

Strawberry Farms, Irvine, Ca

Champions Club at the Retreat, Corona, Ca

(what you cannot tell from the picture is that there is a huge lake right in front of this par 3 green. That blue spot is all of the water that you can see, the rest is covered by some green algae lookin gunk. First time i'd ever seen it like this. Its a tough hole.)

Glen Ivy (Formerly Trilogy), Corona, Ca

(Tee box on 18th hole. The green is on the opposite side of the lake. Fun hole!)

This is a Jack Nicklaus designed course at the Grand Mayan on Riviera Maya in Mexico.

We got a great deal at the airport, $50 a round.  Then we showed up and learned we had to sit through a time share presentation, which took hours.  Fine.  When that finally ended, the guy said "we have the finest par 3 course in mexico."

Glenn Mills Golf Course, PA.  March 2011.

This picture doesn't really do the course justice--it was beautifully maintained.   I think we all re-teed on this and only one of 8 balls found the fairway.
