It was 66-degrees Fahrenheit on January 12, 2020 when I was out playing on the 3rd hole when I suddenly encountered Bambi’s Ball Hunt, which just ‘felt’ like it belonged front and center in this installment of Sterling Farms Golfer, 2020 Winter Edition.
Now… we are talking about genuine wildlife here, not Mr. Squirrel, but big game! And there were two, not one, but two Bambi’s in the crosshairs of my iPhone 6s Plus.
These two weren’t out here wasting their time looking for Pinnacles. Nope! They were after the good stuff… I’m talking Pro V baby!
Well, I watched them meander about for a few minutes, but the weather was just so spectacular (did I mention it was 66-degrees Fahrenheit on that Sunday afternoon, January 12, 2020?) that it was time to resume the game, and what a game it was!
Mike Golden’s Glorious Work
The golf course at Sterling Farms is quite wonderful, and the hard work and effort put forth by Mike Golden, his assistant P.J., and the whole crew is positively super.
In fact, I just had to illustrate the point, not so much with taking beauty shots, as this time of the year only serves to make my somewhat dubious photo work even more haunting, so instead… I made a small video….
