Bethpage Black Photo Tour

Had an opportunity to walk Bethpage Black yesterday during the Pro-Am that preceded this weekend’s Barclays tournament. Here’s a collection of photos from my afternoon.

The fifth, where I overheard Kevin Na tell his caddie:  “This is one of the hardest golf courses I’ve ever played in my life.”

 

The approach on 6 from a narrow, sloping fairway:

 

The pond that protects the par-3 eighth hole:

 

Sweet look at the fairway on #9.  Your lie, however, may not be so sweet:

 

Lightning shelter just off the tenth green:

 

Now THAT is a bunker.  #11:

    Great pics! I was there as well. My #1 favorite golf course of all-time (Pinehurst No. 2 comes a distant 2nd). It is where I learned to play the game with my Dad. It is truly the “People’s Course” where everyone is equal and can enjoy America’s greatest game. Thanks for sharing!
