Amazing Sharp Park Drone Videography


Brad has a new toy. A hi-rez video camera with attached drone. While practicing with the drone, he took these clips over Sharp Park, Laguna Salada, Salada Beach and looking toward Pacifica. 


 By the way... Laguna Salada means "Salt Lake"which... it is no longer. It has been a  freshwater lake for the last 70 years or so, therefore an ideal habitat for endangered frogs and snakes. Endangered elseswhere, but quite happy here next to the course. All  thanks to the golf course that created the frog and sake friendly habitat. Just sayin...

Brad is a professional photographer and author of "Alister Mackenzie's Legacy of Public Golf at Sharp Park".



This illustration is a recreation of the original Sharp Park layout.


Brad is also an advocate for protecting the important historical legacy of the course and a provisional member of the Bad Golfers Associations (although his single digit handicap has some of the members grumbling).

He gave me permission to post these clips on YouTube and the blog for us all to enjoy. Thanks, Brad.

Great use of a new toy. And there's an amusing typo where you have "sake" rather than "snake," which you might want to keep or correct.

I am undecided. If bring out shots of sake instead of beer on our next round at Sharp, I believe I can legitimately leave the blog post intact. TBD.

Just so you know. Snake Sake is a thing.

Huh. I guess we know what we will be drinking at the turn on our next outing.
