Congratulations to everyone at UT Golf Club for finally getting in the new clubhouse. And for the rest of you, go take a look at it. Really, really nice. Some of my photos are hanging up in there somewhere. This one here of the par-3 2nd hole isn’t one of them, but looking at it brings a few things to mind in the spirit of teaching golf photography in the Hill Country.
First, mornings are a crap shoot. The light is usually perfect, but maintenance crews making tracks in the dew can ruin a sublime golf landscape. Also, remember to dress well. By “well,” I mean be prepared to experience the proverbial witch’s tit. At least in the spring and fall.
Second, don’t let anyone tell you that you need a ____ing ladder. This is just my opinion (which is the most important one on this blog), but the best golf photos are from the ground. Isn’t that where golfers are?
