On my HOG World Tour road trip to Oregon and Bandon Dunes Golf Resort I was fortunate to work out a time on the amazing par-3 Bandon Preserve course to capture some racing drone video, as the course was closed for maintenance. It was simply blind luck but I was happy to take advantage of the situation and buzz the course for some really fun video clips. Check it out:
If you have a golf course you’d like some aerial videography or photography of, let me know.
I’m thrilled to have a new member of my drone fleet which makes capturing high quality images from the sky much easier than my previous, large hexacopter. Here are a few fun photos of Utah’s Talons Cove Golf Course, located on the shores of Utah Lake.
The last time I played here there were not as many homes on the course. There is a ton of development there now. See below:
I usually play well at Talons Cove. The course sets up well for my eye.
Hope you enjoyed the pics. These photos may not be used without permission.
When I’m not golfing, skiing, or blogging, I’m building drones. I must have about 15 of them now, in varying sizes. The rage these days is “racing” drones, which are moderately small and very fast/nimble. I’ve built several, one which I used for the video below, two laps around the 4th and 5th holes at my home course, which is now closed because of the Coronavirus.
I was ripping pretty damn fast on these two racing drone laps. Hole 4 is a longish par-4 and 5 is a par-5. Just takes a few seconds to fly each hole. Winter is coming to a close and the course hasn’t started spring growth yet, which makes some of the terrain look interesting.
Fox Sports is taking a beating for its golf broadcasts from many out there who think they can do better or know better. Hat’s off to Fox Sports for introducing drone coverage to the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay. As a “drone pilot” and builder of several unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) myself, I’m stoked to see some new looks.
I’m miffed that Fox Sports didn’t hire me to do this gig though. I have to be the world’s best combination golf/drone authority.
