I spent some time in very windy conditions today capturing a few holes on the back nine of the Mountain Dell Lake Course. The Lake Course is one of two courses at Mountain Dell, the other being the Canyon Course. Mountain Dell is a municipal golf course located in Parleys Canyon, midway between Salt Lake City and Park City, Utah.

I captured the photos with my golf aerial remote controlled hexacopter. It is a rig I built myself for the purpose of capturing stunning golf photos and video. As you can see from the photo above and the other golf aerial photos in the Mountain Dell Lake Course photo gallery, the aerial rig is delivering some fantastic results!
On the last HOG World Tour stop in the Bahamas at Sandals Resorts on the island of Exuma, I had a small window of time to do some aerial shots of Greg Norman’s golf course there. Emerald Reef is the name of the course and the back nine has some very scenic holes as you will see in the video. Unfortunately the weather was rainy and cloudy and my only window of time was late in the day. As a result the lighting is a bit dark. That said, the shots are still stunning. What a piece of property! Enjoy.
While staying at the fabulous Sandals Emerald Bay all-inclusive resort last week, I spent a couple of days on the Greg Norman designed Emerald Reef Golf Course. I’ve just uploaded a batch of photos of the course to the new HOG Emerald Reef photo gallery for you to check out.

I even captured a couple of photos with my small aerial photo/video multirotor quadcopter (also known as a drone) as you can see in the photo below. The lighting wasn’t great due to stormy weather, so the drone pictures aren’t as good as they could be.

The Hooked On Golf Blog World Tour spent most of the week last week at the fabulous Sandals Resorts Emerald Bay property on the island of Exuma in the Bahamas. I’ve now added a large batch of photos of the resort and its many offerings, even some photos from my drone (see picture below).

There is no way I could capture photographically everything Sandals Emerald Bay offers, but the gallery should give you a good idea if you are planning a caribbean trip, or a Bahamas trip. There are even photos of the awesome caribbean drinks!

Enjoy the Sandals Emerald Bay photos for now, and stay tuned for my full review soon.
Greetings from the beautiful Sandals Emerald Bay on the island of Exuma in the Bahamas. I’m here to review the resort, the on-site Greg Norman designed golf course, and to play in a two day tournament. Internet connectivity here is as consistent as my short game, meaning it works only about 25% of the time and even then it is sketchy.
Cue the cue the Pink Floyd
Yesterday marked an activity I’ve never done before and will never forget, swimming with the pigs. There’s an island here where pigs roam, and when traveling boats come by the pigs jump into the water hoping to get fed. Very fun, and entertaining experience. I’m uploading a video to YouTube now, but with the bad internet here, it could take 247 years to finish. So enjoy the photo above and tune back into this post for the video later.
