ICYMI:There’s a replica of St. Andrews in someone’s backyard

OK, not a full replica but an awesome replica of the famous 17th hole’s famous bunker (Tongue twister much?). And I know, the Open Championship is over and this was posted all over before the it even started but c’mon, this is such a timeless photo!

That’s just the awesome thing about golf course design. Golf courses are like art pieces and the entire world is the gallery holding all of these forms of art.

And each course has such a distinctive and memorable feature and usually it’s a bunker such as Oakmont’s “Church Pew” bunker, Royal St. George’s gigantic bunker and of course, the famous Road Hole bunker at St. Andrews. No two designs are alike my friends!

Someone is really taking their bunker game seriously! This is awesome! #StAndrews #TheOpen #RoadHoleBunkerInYourBackGarden

Now, all that backyard needs is a green next to it so we can practice our recovery shots! We’ll be winning Opens at St. Andrews in nooo time….I think. Well, maybe our guy Lukie Donald will design a replica in his backyard too!
