Golf Architecture Pictures .com is about showing a large selection of pictures of different golf courses around the world. The emphasis will not be on showing the best quality pictures, but rather on showing many details of holes, greens, tees, bunkers, water hazards of golf courses. The idea of the site was born when Dutch golf course architect Frank Pont decided to put his large collection of golf course pictures online, so that others would also be able to benefit from accessing and using these pictures.
The goal is to continue adding pictures of interesting golf courses from around the globe to this site, if possible aided by other golf players/architects/enthusiasts who are also willing to share their treasured pictures they have built up over many years. The site will NOT BE COMMERCIAL, but rather will be a free visual encyclopedia for people interested in classic, modern, links, parkland, beautiful or even ugly and poor golf courses.
Visitors of the site are allowed to download medium resolution samples of the pictures for non-commercial use, however the copyright remains with the person who made the picture. Permission is required from the person who made the picture before any commercial use; e-mail links are provided with the web photo galleries.
The long term vision is to develop a site with millions of pictures of thousands of golf courses. A site where it is possible to look up a picture of a typical Colt bunker at Swinley Forest, a McKenzie green at Alwoodley, a Doak hole on Barnbougle Dunes and a Pete Dye water hazard at TPC Sawgrass. To follow updates on new courses added go to @GolfArchiePics at Twitter.com.
Contact Frank when you have pictures of golf courses that are missing on the site and are willing to share these pictures.
