I was thinking this today as I was playing, the leaves are all gone and the course is turning to it's winter browns in some places. What about where you live? What does golf look like there? Post up those pics!

These are at my home course, it's a rather flat links style track. We have a lot of tree lined courses and even a couple of hilly ones but this is mine and I like it.

Walking toward the par 3 11th hole (that's the green and the pond you have go hit over, normally you can't see right through these trees quite so much. I made a par there today.



Here is the right side of the 11th hole, that is a bean field right over that fence.



Here's looking back from the green on the par 5 12th hole after a par.



Walking up the 15th fairway, that bunker is right at 275 off the tee, catches more balls than I'd like to count right now! Not today though, drove it just to the left of it.



And finally here's the par 4 10th hole. It wasn't quite that cold out, not sure why he felt the need to have the hood up. And a MAJOR no no on the outfit, I rode him about it plenty. Not sure if you can see it in the pic but my ball is down by the tree past that Christmas tree. I smoked that one.

Yeah, great idea P4B. I don't have any current pic's, but will try to get some. They just shut down the tee box's on my course, so we have make shift spots (In front of the ladies, lol). Still quite a few leaves on the trees, but the crab grass has all died out and the good fescue is still holding its own.

Yes and there is that lone figure out there, hat or hoodie and all. That is usually me.

The courses in northern New England have obviously lost a good many leaves by now and the courses have all just been aereted. I really cannot believe the shape they are in it is so good. Everything is firming up and by afternoon the greens are hard and dry so the greens are lighting on some of the course I play. It depends on the type of grass for one thing (like that is a revelation.....Jesus jnug sometimes you are just a wealth of information).

Some of the courses do a great job of getting the leaves moved off to where are they mostly not a bother and others do close to nothing. All in all I am really pleased with the conditioins. Now that I have joined the clubs I am going to join for 2011 and can play them the remainder of this 2010 season I have got to get out there and get my swing back in order. I have played so many different courses in the last few weeks that I have never played before or have not played in sixteen years that my game is a bit of a mess. When I have never been on a course of don't remember it I pay too much attention to whether or not I like the course and will make it the place I am going to join and then on another level try to keep from putting myself in really bad places. My swing just goes to hell as you still need to keep pace and not hold people up. You just don't have time for everything.

I am not going to change courses at all for whatever remains of this year and just try to get things back in order.

This IS a great idea. I am playing tomorrow and I will post a couple pics.

We have predominantly zoysia fairways here in STL. Being a warm season grass, fairways here are now dormant and completely brown. The rough are cool season grasses though(fescue/bluegrass mixes), and it still looks great. Kind of weird.

If I get out on the course today, I'll get some pictures. I know I'm hitting the range, but playing a round is still up in the air.

Great thread and that is a nice looking course Jimbud. I will post some pics the next time I get up but I can describe it in a few words. Grey sky, wet, no leaves and very very green.

Beautiful course Jimbud. Looks like a lot of strategy/lay up/not driver off the tee.

We have some nice courses in my area but nothing as stunning as that.
My home courses look a lot like P4Bs. If I make it out sometime this week I'll snap some pictures... but I doubt I will :(

Thanks, They aren't all this pretty but this is a hell of a place to live if you like playing golf or fish. The Quarry course is rated in Golf Digests top public courses every year and was built in a reclaimed iron ore mine just south of Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area. Superior National as you can see from the photos is right on Minnesota's North Shore in Lutsen. I've only played it once and now that I have a idea on how the course is configured I can't wait to get a chance to play it again. The Pines at Grand View is right down the street and is just pure heaven. If you play the Pines and your driver is acting up, leave it at home. :drinks:

I was concentrating so much on my (new) iron play that I only remembered to take one picture. Here is the view from the tee box on #3 at the course I play most often.



It's one of the easiest holes on the course at around 300-325 depending on tee and pin placements. It's a par 4 with unseen bunkers guarding left, front, and right!
