The golf season may be coming to a close, but it's not over yet... as long a weather cooperates on the right days, I plan to get a few more rounds in. Looking back in my summer sketchbook of golf, I have sketched over 300 golf holes, some holes more than once. With 16 different golf courses and a total of 288 different holes, its been a great summer!
Season is changing and it's time for something new ... but what will it be?

Its a long drive from London to Montreal for just a long weekend! We were staying in "Old Montreal" but did not have enough time to really enjoy it. But did enjoy the three golf courses we played. Some sketched on location and some sketched later from photos.
Club de Golf Le Fontainebleau opened in 2003. "Designed by Graham Cooke and Darrell Huxham, the 7,105-yard, par-72 layout has strong green sites with large putting surfaces that are highly contoured and protected by bold bunkering."

Club de golf Islesmere, which opened in 1919 is a traditional parkland course that offers an enjoyable but challenging walk through the woods. "Islesmere is a tree-lined, narrow, strategic course; patience is truly a virtue here."

The inner organizational freak started to take over and I started to draw my grid of nine holes before I got to the golf course, so that I could neatly capture the front nine on one page and back nine on the next page. The other change is using brown ink with coloured pencil. Some sketched on location and some sketched later from ipad photos.
"Rocky Crest Golf Club celebrates the natural features of the Canadian Shield in Ontario’s Muskoka region and was designed by Thomas McBroom."

Glencairn Golf Club was established in 2005and designed by architect Thomas McBroom. "It’s been said that Glencairn is the closest you’ll come to Scotland without crossing the Atlantic. From the moment you pass the stone gates and wind your way between rock fences to the majestic multi-turreted clubhouse, you will feel like you just arrived at a Scottish links."
