Course of the week…
has to be Royal Lytham & St Annes.
I shot the course last summer for the club as part of their preparations for this year’s Open Championship. In particular, they were looking for some impressive images for their website and recently revamped dinning room.
The course itself is one of the toughest on the Open Championship circuit – whoever lifts the Claret Jug on Sunday will deserve it. Surrounded by buildings and with limited access to high points, it was also a tricky course to shoot.
Over a series of days in June 2011, I photographed the layout in the morning and late evening light. The results hopefully show a course full of twists and turns that will test the very best players in the world.
