Golf and a ball game

GH08 Cherry Creek No 7

A week of holidays, golfing, gardening and a little bit of artwork. Wednesday, golfed at Cherry Creek Golf Club located in Macomb County, Michigan. Lanny Wadkins/Mike Bylen designed golf course. After golf, went to Detroit to a ball game, Blue Jays lost to Tigers, but a good game. Comerica Park, an open air ball park, located across from the Fox Theatre and between two historic downtown churches, St. John Episcopal Church and Central United Methodist Church. From the park you can see the downtown skyline. Check out...  Detroit in ruins: Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre's [their website] extraordinary photographs documenting the dramatic decline of a major American city.

KOLF No. 14 Quotes

KOLF No. 14 Quotes
This is another drawing in the KOLF series. "Walking down any fairway you can sense the tradition and history of the sport. You can almost feel the presence of the likes of Bobby Jones and Babe Zaharias" represented by the outline of a Bobby Jones. These random quotes appealed to me as they all have  an artistic twist.

Quotes include: WHAT OTHER PEOPLE MAY FIND IN POETRY OR ART MUSEUMS, I FIND IN THE FLIGHT OF A GOOD DRIVE – ARNOLD PALMER. The hole depicted here is based on Number 16, the longest par 5 (white-471 to black-558 yds) at Firerock Golf Club in London.

Blackhorse Golf

BlackHorse Golf and Country Resort No 3 and 7
Played golf at BlackHorse Golf and Country Resort with my sister a month or so ago. Really liked the course, so Troy and I went back to play with my sister and her husband again. Two holes carved out of a former gravel pit are among the most spectacular, offering dramatic views and the challenge of playing around a 5-acre spring-fed lake. The course has six ponds, 50 bunkers and four sets of tees on every hole. BlackHorse is tucked away in a quiet rural setting, Its in great shape, is challenging and worth the drive to Kindardine. This drawing is of the spectacular view by hole 3 and hoel 7 in distance. Size is 3.5” x 12.5”, ink and graphite on stonehenge paper.
