Most users of the Prisma Swamp Rabbit Trail probably fail to notice this field on your left on the other side of the Reedy when heading north at Willard Street. I suspect very few have traveled to Reach Street to see this sign explaining the use of this green space for junior golf practice.
As part of the BMW Charity Pro Am golf tournament, there was a celebrity concert in downtown Greenville on the corner of Main and Broad streets. The free concert featured some members of the Hootie and the Blowfish, and Rascal Flatts.
Today’s photo shows a golf ball caught in flight during a tee shot at Thornblade … I have included links to a few additional action golf photos. The ball as it jumps after a chip shot, the ball as it approaches the hole after a putt, and the ball as it drops in the hole. I have even included a photo with three balls in the air at once.
Yesterday I volunteered to take photos at a golf tournament organized by AIM. This is an organization which does a lot for those in need in Anderson, a neighbor city to Greenville … Volunteering gave me a chance to enjoy Thornblade, which is one of Greenville’s premier golf courses, and to take photos very close to the action … today’s featured photo shows one of the golfers tipping his hat to all of us … additional photos can be found at Everyday Eclecticism published by Angie.
PS: I found an interesting article titled The Economic Impact of Golf In South Carolina. The article states that “golf courses and the off-course expenditures of visiting golfers had a total
economic impact of $2.261 billion and 30,938 jobs” … With those kind of figures I think we should all tip our hats, in thanks, to the golfers.
