Humorous Golf Prints and Golf Photos Make Great Gifts
Think outside the box when selecting the perfect gift for the golf lover in your life. Instead of adding one more box of personalized golf tees to his collection, check out the wide range of framed golf art and golf photos available at collector's sites online. If you're not sure what sort of golf pics would be most appreciated, this quick overview of available golf photos can help you get started finding the perfect piece of golf art.
Classic Golf Holes
Some of the most beautiful golf photos carry a special significance for the golf enthusiast. Where most people would just see a golf course, the golf historian will recognize the most famous holes in the world of golf. One of the most famous - and the most beautiful - golf holes in the world is the 13th hole at Augusta National, perennial home of the Masters Tournament. Nicknamed Azalea for the approximately 1,600 azaleas that bloom during the Masters, #13 is the last of a trio of holes at Augusta National collectively known as the Amen Corner.
Golf course Art
Among the most beautiful pieces of golf art are the golf landscapes painted in oils by Linda Hartough. Hartough has gained international fame as one of the world's premiere golf artists, and she has been commissioned by the U.S. Golf Association and Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews to do the official annual paintings for the U.S. Open and the British Open. Open edition prints of Hartough's painting are affordable for even the budget-minded collector and her work is expansive enough for a gift of her framed golf art to be the beginning of an entire collection.
Inspirational Golf Course Paintings
Utah artist Gary Collins is widely known as one of the finest U.S. contemporary landscape painters. His stunning golf course paintings illustrate the inspirational book "The Secrets to the Game of Golf and Life." Each of the 24 paintings illustrates a distinct part of the golfing life, and taken as a whole, they represent the spiritual side of golf that all golfers feel, but few can express clearly. Any one of the paintings from the series, framed and matted, makes a beautiful gift for the office wall or an accent piece for the living room.
Vintage Golf Pictures
Expose the tender, humorous side of golf with golf pictures that are ideally suited for a child's room or the office or reception wall. Among the best are prints of paintings by Bart Forbes, renowned sports and golf artist who regularly painted illustrations for women's magazines and sports magazines, including Golf Digest, during the 1970s and 1980s. A matched set of prints featuring vintage male and female golfers are an ideal accent for a favorite golfer's office wall. From advertising art to magazine covers, vintage art is a wealthy source of endearing and humorous golf prints.
Whether you're looking for a gift of golf art or seeking golf photos for your own walls, you'll find a wide choice of subjects, styles and genres available, so it's easy to choose golf art that appeals to anyone and fits any style of decor.
