The 13th Hole, "Azalea", Par 5, 485 Yards, Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta, Georgia

The 13th hole of Augusta National Golf Club is one of the most exciting in golf. After placing the tee shot around the corner of the dogleg, the player has the option of either laying up short of the creek fronting the green, or going for the green in two. Image size is 15 3/8" x 27". The 13th is the last and most colorful of the Amen Corner holes. Over 1600 azaleas blanket the hillside to the left of the fairway. When these azaleas, along with the white dogwoods, are in full bloom, the 13th hole proudly announces the arrival of spring. World renowned golf artist, Linda Hartough, has captured the player's view of the approach to the green in a most dramatic and accurate way. She was commissioned by the Augusta National Golf Club because of her outstanding talent of showing not only the artistry, but also the undulations and characteristics of the hole.




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.
