Golf Art


The 3 paintings below are what started me on my road to doing Golf Illustrations. In the early 80's I was involved in a Pro Golf store in Ohio when a salesman from Foot Joy and Titleist say my watercolor One Up After Nine and asked if he could show a copy of it to his boss and I was off. It became a print, then they did 6 color lithographs, which was expensive. 

If you are interested in how I painted conceptual Illustrations of golf holes under construction, check out my At Work page.

This pretty par 3 is a copy of #12 at Augusta.

Some of my Favorite past golf course paintings

From 1980 to 1999 I painted around 80 different golf holes. The following are some of my favorites for one reason or another. Usually I painted in gouache if it was just a presentation or advertising rendering, but a lot of them required oil paint.
