Pebble Beach Golf Links is the site of one of the longest running PGA Tour championships. The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am began as The Bing Crosby National Pro-Am in 1947 and has been held annually ever since, raising to date more than $66 million dollars for charity. Pebble Beach Golf Links has also hosted ten USGA Championships, beginning with the 1929 U.S. Amateur. In 1972, Pebble Beach Golf Links became the first public-access course to host a U.S. Open. In 2010, it will host the U.S. Open for a fifth time. Since 1972 no other course has hosted as many.
American artist Linda Hartough has focused her skills as a landscape painter to recreate some of the world’s most beautiful golf holes. The artist has become recognized as one of golf’s leading artists. So extraordinary and realistic is her attention to detail that her oil paintings seem to come alive with a clarity that surpasses the camera.
“When I look at a golf hole,” says artist Linda Hartough, “I have to see what players like about it—how a golfer plays it. Then I see it as landscape—as a work of fine art.”
