"Google Earth" your home course and post the pics


Recommended Posts

show any cool holes or features
I'll start:

Bangor Golf Club, Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland
A hilly Park Land course with strong sea breezes.
18 holes - 6410 yards from the competition tees - par71

The Club House

General overview of the whole course

This is a sweet par 4 - Big dog leg to the right. To get to the corner is only about a 245yd shot but If you can carry a high ball about 280 you can go over the tall trees at the corner, flirt with the OB and leave yourself a much shorter shot to the green.

If anyone is interested, my home course has a pretty class feature for viewing the holes. Championship links designed by Old Tom Morris & Alastair McKenzie, founded 1892!

I LOVED my round at your course last summer. A really beautiful course that was so fun to play. My day was helped by sunshine and warm temps that helped my go 3-2 on holes 4 & 5. My near ace on 5 was one of the most memorable shots of the trip, even though I couldn't see it when I hit it.

Hobble Creek located east of Springville, Utah. Not long, only about 6400/71, but a beautiful course, especially in the fall when the mountain oaks and maples turn the mountain sides bright red and orange.

Springville is located in Utah County, the next town south of Provo, and 45 minutes south of Salt Lake. Logan is a couple of hours away from me.

Here are my two. Picture quality is pretty rubbish in the UK, but this is the best I can do.

 

 

 

The blue numbers are the New course and the red ones are the Old course.

When I play, this would be home.. But since I've played 4 times in the last 12 months, I don't think it counts as any type of home... cray.gif

I know a handful of WRXers can call this home - or at least close to it. I still like to call it home, even though I'm thousands of miles a way. Its nothing special, but its our diamond in the rough.

 

 

 

Yes, thats an air base. Its not uncommon to have a C5 take off behind you, but the worst is the after burners from a jet in the middle of a back swing :golfer:

Here's where I often play and where I hit my first golf ball ... It's located at about 25 km from Paris west side (in France) ... "Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines Golf course". There are 2x 18 holes and 1x compact 9 holes. I've marqued the Blue course, the main and longest course.

Since 2 years, they begins lot of work and courses will be reconstructed and merged ...
