The colours around a golf course really come to life during the autumn, or ‘Fall’, as our friends across the Atlantic call it. I took my camera down to Swinley Forest Golf Club and then along to The Berkshire Golf Club to catch some great autumn views.
I am lucky enough to work within the golf industry but I have yet to visit any of these exotic locations, the closest I get is sorting through the images on my Pc to see which ones I should add to the company website.
At least I have a large monitor, that way I can stare at the blue crystal clear water along with the pure white sand and imagine myself playing golf there.
When you arrive at Gleneagles you become instantly aware that you’re at a special venue as the location provides wonderful ambience that rarely exists at other championship golf courses.
The scenery is wonderful with the Ochil hills as a backdrop and a car ride through Glendevon to the east would inspire even the keenest of outdoor pursuit enthusiast. The whole estate is filled with golf and all that is good which surrounds this fine game.
Set in the heart of the Chiltern’s, Ellesborough can seem a little hilly in places but the course provides fantastic views and outstanding scenery during your round. It rained non-stop on the evening before I played but the course must have excellent drainage as there was no sign of the downpour the next day.
