On the Links
This page isn't devoted to one location, as my pages usually are.  These photos
were taken on golf courses all over the world.  Initially, I wondered if I could
find enough scenic golf course photos to fill a page, but - as any golfer could
have undoubtedly told me - I found enough to fill hundreds of pages.  So
many beautiful courses...narrowing down the pictures was mind-boggling.
Almost makes me want to play golf.
By the way, the purists among you will know that the term "links" isn't
actually interchangeable with "golf course," because a links golf course is a
specific type of course.  I've allowed myself a little artistic license. :-)

Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad
breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots.
But you have to play the ball where it lies.  -- Bobby Jones

Golf is a game in which you yell "fore"... shoot six
... and write down five.  -- Paul Harvey

It's good sportsmanship to not pick up lost golf balls
while they are still rolling.  -- Mark Twain
Talking to a golf ball won't do you any good - unless you do
it while your opponent is teeing off.  -- Bruce Lansky

Never bet with anyone you meet on the first tee who has
a deep suntan and a 1-iron in his bag.  -- Dave Marr
Golf is 20 percent mechanics and technique.  The other
80 percent is philosophy, humor, melodrama, tragedy,
camaraderie and cussedness. -- Grantland Rice
I was three over.  One over a house, one over a patio, and
one over a swimming pool.  -- George Brett

What's nice about the senior tour is that we can't remember
yesterday's bad shots.  -- Bob Bruce
One of the advantages bowling has over golf is that
you seldom lose a bowling ball.  -- Don Carter

only got $5 in your pocket.  -- Lee Trevino
Golf is a game whose aim is to put an elusive ball into
an obscure hole with implements ill adapted for
the purpose.  -- Attributed to Woodrow Wilson

world is when one is playing golf.  -- Robert Lynd
