Superstition Springs GC

Superstition Springs Hole No. 3
Another sketch from Arizona golf trip. First golf course we played was Superstition Springs Golf Club in the Valley of the Sun. Greg Nash designed this course to be friendly off the tee, with the all important second shot to be played aroung beautiful lakes, creative bunkers, mounding, with plenty of palm trees, mature pines and eucalyptus trees for shade. This was a former PGA Qualifying Site, very different than other desert golf we played.

Desert Golf

We-Ko-Pa, Saguaro Hole No. 6
We played six rounds of golf while in Arizona this past week, with my favourite being We-Ko-Pa Golf Club, Saguaro Course on the last day. From sketchbook, started with fast sketch on location finished later.
We-Ko-Pa is owned by the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation and is managed by Scottsdale-based EF Golf and OB Sports. There are no homes, condos or townhomes lining these fairways, just the natural beauty of the desert with views of McDowell Mountains, Red Mountain, Four Peaks and the Superstitions Mountains.

Second Round, First 18

April 6th, Good Friday, weather warm enought to play golf, London, ON Canada. I was expecting it to be busier at Greenhills Golf Course, therefore waiting more, therefore drawing more, but there was no waiting. First chance to sketch was hole no 13, then a short wait on hole no 15, shown here. Had just enough time for very fast sketch, then added a little more when I got home. Happy to have day off and be golfing!

Clinton, Ontario

SS40, Albert and Victoria Street, Clinton
I was born and raised near Londesboro, and attended high school in Clinton, ON. The corner of Albert and Victoria Street (main corner in Clinton) there is a wealth of late nineteen century architecture. In 1857, Clinton became first incorporated village in Huron County, then in 1876 incorporated as a town, and reached the peak of its development in 1890’s.
