Decorating with Golf Pictures

Whether you’re decorating a golf room, looking for golf décor for your game room or trying to find the finishing touch for the reception office of your business, golf art can be the ideal solution. Golf pictures range from the humorous to the inspirational, so there’s something to fit the mood of any room in your home or business. A number of painters, artists and photographers have concentrated their careers on producing golf course art and golf pictures, and many of those pictures have become as famous the legends of golf they often depict.
Golf Course Art
Generally, when people think of the legends of golf, they’re thinking of famous golfers – Robert “Bobby” Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson. There’s another type of golf legend, however – legendary golf courses and legendary golf holes. Some of the most striking and best-known golf course art are views of well-known holes on famous golf courses, such as Pebble Beach and Augusta. Art works by painters like Linda Hartough and Marci Rule dominate the world of golf course art, including different views of Augusta #12, Golden Bell, and the 7th hole at Pebble Beach, with a view overlooking the ocean.
Beautiful Landscapes, Inspiring Views
One doesn’t have to be an avid golfer to appreciate the beauty of a Hartough landscape, but golfers have an added layer of appreciation for these paintings that show the lay of the hole and the design of the course. When you appreciate and understand the intricacies of the game and have watched professionals play these holes, there’s a deeper connection to the painting. As a golfer, you can put yourself in the picture, imagine yourself gauging the effect of the wind at Augusta #12 or aligning yourself to put the ball between the bunkers and squarely on the green.
Golf artwork is more than pretty pictures, though. Golf pictures, prints and paintings are a major niche in the world of golf memorabilia, and have a monetary value as well as an intrinsic one. That value hinges on the authenticity of the golf art or of the golf memorabilia you purchase. When choosing golf pictures for decorating, look for a reputable dealer of golf course art and golf memorabilia who can guarantee the authenticity of the artwork.
Genuine golf art signed by painters like Marci Rule and Linda Hartough add a special touch to any room, from your game room to the boardroom. Be sure that you’re getting genuine golf pictures by dealing with a reputable dealer of golf art and golf memorabilia.
