Where No Golf Ball Should Go is a 14x11 plein air by Shirley Fachilla.
This is part of Hole 6 on the Canyon Course of SuperiorNational in
Looks like untamed wilderness, right? Well, this part of the course as it
follows Poplar Creek is wild, intimidating and yes, untamed. It’s made up of
rushing water, tall firs and jumbled boulders. Lutsen, Minnesota
I’m no golfer but I can attest that the balls that land in this stretch of Poplar aren’t playable. And because the t-box is on one side; the green on the other and the stream is down, down, down in between; plenty of balls plonk in the stream. I watched quite a few make the splash as I painted. A couple even ricocheted in.
My husband, the golfer, was playing the Canyon, and Superior National kindly allowed me to paint as he played. (His ball did not land in the water.) So we both had a great time.
