That golfing monk makes me smile!

I know nothing about golf, so this is "greek" to me :-) but the sign is beautiful!

Looks like it was a perfect day for golf when you took the pictures.

I've only hit balls on the practice range and I'm sure I never hit one that far. I don't putt all that well either. Golf is just not my sport.

Pat said...

I, too, like the golfing monk!

A unique golfing sign! The sign itself could pass into legends!

Very good shots, but the innate significance of the signs is lost on a non-golfer like me! Is it good? ;-)

Do you play? Maybe we can get together next season. :)
I didn't know John Daly had ever played around here. 390 is quite an impressive drive. For many of the ladies holes, that would bring me right to the green!

I don't really play. Though I have a set of clubs, I have only been out a few times - and certainly not at this course! I was only visiting, but I did think of you when I took this 'shot'!
