The Masters has come and gone – and if you’re a golf fan, you’re probably having some withdrawals about now. Fear not! We have something that should perk you right up. There’s nothing better than getting out on the golf course for a little relaxation and for a chance to take in some of nature’s beauty. From the ground, golf course are works of art – carefully manicured fairways, raked sand traps and trimmed greens. The colors on a golf course are magnificent as well.
But when you add a drone to the mix, you get a whole new perspective on what lies in between the trees on golf holes that criss cross the region. We’ve compiled some of the most stunning drone images of golf courses around and we think you’ll enjoy them – even if you’re stuck in the office, staring out the window wishing you were about to make the turn. We’ve also included some great quotes from famous names in golf to help you enjoy the game even more. Enjoy!
1. A beautiful approach
“Success in this game depends less on strength of body than strength of mind and character.”
2. A gallery of trees
“If you worry about making bogeys, it makes the game that much more difficult. You put more pressure on yourself without even noticing it. It makes a difference to take it easy when things aren’t going right.”
3. The bunkers abound
“Golf… is the infallible test. The man who can go into a patch of rough alone, with the knowledge that only God is watching him, and play his ball where it lies, is the man who will serve you faithfully and well.”
4. Fly the green if you must
“Golf is about how well you accept, respond to, and score with your misses much more so than it is a game of your perfect shots.”
Dr. Bob Rotella
5. Cut from the thick trees is Oxford Greens
“One reason golf is such an exasperating game is that a thing we learned is so easily forgotten, and we find ourselves struggling year after year with faults we had discovered and corrected time and again.”
6. Room to work with
“Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening – and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.”
7. A Wynn is a win on the golf course
“Keep your sense of humor. There’s enough stress in the rest of your life not to let bad shots ruin a game you’re supposed to enjoy.”
8. Arrowhead in Denver, Colorado
“I think it’s more than whether or not you win or lose. It’s having that opportunity on that final round, final nine, to come down the stretch with a chance to win.”
9. PGA promo shoot
J-Day, Sergio and my drone kicked it up a notch last year at our @adidasgolf photo shoot.
10. Nestled up against the lake
“The most important shot in golf is the next one.”
11. The sun sets on another great day on the course
“If you drink, don’t drive. Don’t even putt.”
12. Autumn trees paint the perfect picture
“I call upon all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers. Thank you. Now watch this drive.”
George W. Bush
13. Inspired to get the perfect shot
“It took me seventeen years to get three thousand hits in baseball. It took one afternoon on the golf course.”
14. Stepping up on a par 3
“Golf is a puzzle without an answer. I’ve played the game for 50 years and I still haven’t the slightest idea of how to play.”
