Golf Photos, Collectibles, and Art

Golf is enjoying a huge resurgence. If you have a passion for golf, your enthusiasm for the sport does not end when you drop the ball in the 18th hole. You think golf, you talk golf, and you dream golf. When you are away from the course, you can't wait to get back. When you are there, you never want to leave.

Of course, no one can stay on the golf course forever, so why not start a collection to remind you of the pleasures of the fairway? Just like some people collect stamps or coins or china cups, you can collect objects about the game of golf. Collecting golf art and memorabilia is a great way to focus on the positive and keep your pleasure in the forefront when you are away from the game.

Golfers have access to a wide range of golf collectibles through online specialty retailers. What exactly are golf collectibles? Basically, they are any type of decorative item with a golf theme. A series of framed pictures of American, Scottish, and British golf courses is a popular collector's item. Another great series is of Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Tom Watson as they each say farewell to the British Open. Speaking of these legends, what could be greater than a framed photograph of Palmer and Nicklaus on tee as the honorary starters of the 2010 Masters?

A framed collection of Masters' pins is a timeless reminder of the great tournaments. You can find historical photos from the early days of golf, knickers and all. In addition to photos of golf legends, there are autographed photos of current golf stars such as Annika Sorenstam, Tiger Woods, and Phil Mickelson. What better inspiration than to see your favorite golfers hanging on your wall reminding you of your game? Just so you don't take your game too seriously, you might want to hang the classic photo of Jackie Gleason golfing.

Golf Collectibles make great tournament awards in place of or in addition to trophies. The winner would surely appreciate four official Masters scorecards signed by Grand Slam champions Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Gary Player, and Jack Nicklaus arranged in an attractive frame. And for second place, a Payne Stewart photo collage from the 1991 U.S. Open.

The same items make great personal and corporate gifts. Use them for auctions or fundraisers for your club or a charitable organization. For company tournaments a variety of photos can be framed identically, each with a personalized tournament plaque. If your co-worker didn't make it to the 2010 Masters, a daily ticket display might be a good pick-me-up. When you are tired of giving golf balls and golf caps as gifts to your golf buddies, give something different-a golf collectible.

Anything you can think of related to the game of golf, you can find as a golf collectible. And if you or someone you know needs a little help with their game, there's always a framed photo of the Golfer's Prayer at St. Salvadore's Cathedral in St. Andrew's Scotland.
