The season is winding down, but there is still some green grass to be found here until the snow flies. At lunch a couple of days ago I flew the aerial photo/video hexacopter over a corner of Salt Lake City’s Meadowbrook Golf Course.

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!
I’m really making great progress on my golf aerials photo/video rig. If you need aerial photos or video, contact me. Yesterday’s shoot at Hidden Valley Country Club here in Sandy, Utah, produced some fantastic shots. It was quite windy, so I’m not sure the videos I captured will turn out, but the photos are fantastic.

I’ve enjoyed the challenge of building a setup to capture these images, and the challenge of flying it. Looking forward to seeing what the future holds for this type of media.
Being the last group on the back nine last night at one of my home courses was quite nice. The temperature had dropped down from 100 to a reasonable 87. The lighting was nice and the wind had died down. I’m such a quick draw on my portable aerial photo/video helicopter that I was able to catch some pictures and video around the par-3 12th hole while waiting for the green to clear!
