I’m happy to have finally added a gallery of photos of Soldier Hollow Golf Course in Midway, Utah. Midway, Utah is about a 15-20 minute drive from Park City, and around a 45 minute drive from Salt Lake City.

Soldier Hollow is the host of this week’s 87th United States Golf Association Amateur Public Links Championship. This “mountain links” course is actually a 36 hole facility but for the USGA Public Links Championship holes from both courses are used. The courses are the “Gold” and “Silver” courses, in honor of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, part of which took place right on property at Solder Hollow Resort. From the course you can see the cross country track. (more…)
Thanks to my pops who did some recon for me on his latest trip to our homeland, Greece. Down in southern Greece he found a resort called Costa Navarino which has two 18 hole courses, the Dunes Course and the Bay Course. He was kind enough to pull out his Nikon and get some pictures of the resort for HOG.

The Dunes course was designed by Bernhard Langer and the Bay Course was designed by my buddy Robert Trent Jones, Jr. (more…)
I just saw that my friends at Black Mesa Golf Club posted a video of yours truly on their YouTube channel. This was following a week of playing the course for a recent media trip. I love that place and the people there, and want to get back as soon as possible. Come with me?
My office this week has been the wonderful Black Mesa Golf Club in La Mesilla, New Mexico about 30 minutes north of Santa Fe. Here are a couple of featured photos of the trillion I’ve shot this week. Below is a shot from the approach area on the par-5 13th. I love the amphitheater which surrounds this green.

Below is where it begins, the first tee. Hole #1 is one of two holes on the course with water features. When the season is right, giant bullfrogs sing to players teeing off with very deep voices. Not much fairway is visible from the tee, but it is wider than you might think. Course knowledge helps.
