A golfers dream, beautiful skies, fresh air, and smooth greens. Let's have a HST Golf
Tournament in Humphreys Basin next year Eric.

Very nice. Although I know your comment was tongue in cheek, I wonder how many golfers we have here. ( Not me, too busy with other stuff :) )

Sweet pic.....makes me want to flush a seven iron and watch it fly with that backdrop. Was in the business as a pro and then gm for 15 years. Now a school teacher so I now have time to play more golf :D And that's where the "drive" part of my name comes from. The fly is the pilot part of me. Together they describe my greatest passion.......fishing :thumbsup:

Beautiful! Humphreys Basin is such a spectacular setting and there are so many mini-landscapes surrounded by glory

I've played a lot of golf but that isn't the reason I like this pic. It's something different here and is really cool (does this word show my age?).

"golf" "club" both 4 letter words... "Guinness" :drinkers: :rolleyes: book for loftiest hole in golf!? 3 clubs divided and shared ought to do it. The hard part w/b to get a PGA type to come to certify it.

Thanks Tom. My wife plays a little, its all television when it comes to golf for me.

Thanks Ladd. Will make the assumption that as a pro you played a lot of courses
around the US and possibly beyond, which had the most lasting impression scenery
wise?

Thanks Brian. Your absolutely correct that there are a lot of hidden mini-landscapes
one can find in Humphreys Basin which is what makes it so intriguing.

Thanks Cross Country. Cool is one of the words that crossed my mind when first
laying my eyes on this to!

Thanks Rlown.

Eric, we will have HST printed on all the flags at each hole! :nod:

Austex, you can supply the Guinness since you brought it up. :D

Maverick;
I really like this picture, with the green grass almost looking mowed, and the golden grasses of fall glowing, with Glacier Divide as a backdrop - very nice. On my previous trips to HB, there were visions of golf in my head, so thanks for the reminder. Tee it up and let it rip!
Funny that I replied to this post once before, but I guess the reply didn't take. User error for sure.

That's a tough one Mav.....I've been pretty fortunate to play many of the great courses in the western US. I love the tracks in Monterey and SF and have played them all (including pebble, spyglass, cypress, sf club, olympic, etc.) but if you allowed me to pick 1 ocean course it would be pacific dunes in Bandon, OR. Inland course it would be Lahontan GC in Truckee - for the golf and fly fishing :D

Thanks Herm glad to hear you like it, especially since Humphreys Basin is one of your
favorite places. :)

Bandon, Oregon. Wow though it would be one of the ones in Monterey will have to look
that course up on the computer. Thanks.
