"It's a challenge to make a great painting and still depict a golfer's favorite scene, but my goal is to make any work of art I create transcend the scene depicted. When you look at a golf course, you have to see what players like about it. Then you have to see it as a landscape. When I begin painting, I try to incorporate everything that is great about that particular hole. My objective is to make it ideal - an ultimate dream hole.

"I try to get the best feeling of the hole by watching people play it. Contours are very important to the golfer and I try to achieve that on a high level. I want to get the feeling of the hole in all its detail - the flowers, the birds, even the animals - and then put it together. I try to do the ultimate, which is to capture the player's point of view.


Linda Hartough
When you look at a painting of a golf course, it is important to see it as a golfer sees it and listen to what a great golfer has to say about it. "I am the proud owner of several paintings by Linda Hartough," says golf legend Jack Nicklaus, one of the greatest golfers in all sport, "and each time I look at one I see something new. Linda has a true feel for a golf course." "Whenever you see a Linda Hartough golf course rendering," says renowned golf course designed Robert Trent Jones, Sr., "you have to resist the urge to grab a club and drop a ball. Linda has the unique ability to capture, in a single solitary perspective, the very essence of the course itself." An interesting fate for a person who didnít grow up sharing her fatherís passion for playing the sport. But Linda Hartough is an artist first and foremost. She instinctively knew that something as complex and beloved as a golf course would have to be an exceptional landscape, with an attention to detail and clarity that surpasses a camera. Calling upon her experiences at the University of Louisville and the Art Institute of Chicago, Hartough approaches each work with an understanding but objective eye. The results have made her one of the popular and prominent artists in the field. In fact, she is the only artist ever commissioned by both the United States Golf Association and the Championship Committee of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews to create the official paintings and prints for the U.S. Open and British Open championships. A veritable championship tournament of her work was released as Hallowed Ground: Golfís Great Places, a book with text by Jaime Diaz, published by The Greenwich Workshop Press.
