Quail Hollow Championship - Golf Course Photography


My father passed along a passion for the game of golf. Not any great skill mind you, but an appreciation of the game, its traditions and the beauty of its venues.
I've covered several major golf tournaments and photographed some of the best courses in the country.
Once again this year I'll be photographing for the Quail Hollow Championship.
As part of that coverage I try to get out in early April to get photos of the beautiful Quail Hollow layout.
Quail Hollow has a great deal of water which comes into play on several of the holes on the back nine. Given the right weather conditions, an eerie mist rises from the water.
You have to arrive at first light to get the best conditions. I figured the cold temperatures Tuesday night would be ideal. It may have been too cold for the mist, but I did get some nice light as a reward for my early arrival.
I'm looking forward to working with Quail's awesome tournament staff again this year.
April and May are going to be very busy months so make sure to check back soon for some engagement photos and more wedding images.
Water, here surrounding the 14th green, is a big part of Quail Hollow's challenge, and its beauty.
