I have a confession to make. I’m not really a dedicated golfer. In fact, one of my favorite reasons for playing golf isn’t actually to hit the ball 200 yards down the fairway or sink that 30-foot putt. It’s to see what great images I can discover while out on the courses.
I usually bring my Sony RX100 along and keep it handy in one of the golf cart cubbies. Then, I can grab it when I have a few spare minutes and see a fun photograph.
On this particular day, I had ample opportunity to take photos because my husband and son were regularly hanging out in the wooded areas while I was straight down the fairway. Sometimes hitting it short but straight has its benefits!
I’ve found over the years that golf courses offer a variety of beautiful scenery, ample opportunity for wildlife viewing and even the occasional surprise, such as the random snake slithering by and a praying mantis that hitched a ride on our golf bag for several holes.
On this May afternoon, the spring blooms were out in full force, and I spent some time in the woods, too. But I figure my reasons were a little more entertaining and rewarding!
