I'm an occasional golfer, I like to play now and again. Lately, I've been bringing my camera so that the time spent is not entirely wasted.
Golf courses are one of the few places where you can get good pictures of trees standing alone. In fact, there are a lot of pretty scenes on a golf course sure to catch the eye of a landscape photographer (not that I know any).
When I bring the camera, I take it out only when we're waiting for the party ahead. That's a forced stop and the only time to not worry about playing too slow. As you may know, if you play too slow, you can feel the scorn of the people behind as they wait for you to move. So it's always a balancing act, take a photo, but don't dilly dally and hold up the whole damn shooting match. (I mean that in the nicest possible way).
