UT Golf Club

ut_golf_clubCongratulations 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?
