Get to Know: Golf Sketch Artist - Daniel Smith
Flaghunting.com has been busy this week with several new partnerships, as well as re-designing our website which will launch in the next few weeks! These changes will allow you to order our new "How to make a yardage book" for your course directly from our site, allow orders to be processed without email, and new collaborations and products to be unveiled...
Our latest partnership includes the artwork of Daniel Smith, and will be featured on our signature yardage books from this point forward! His artistic flowing lines and knowledge of golf course architecture is prevalent in all his sketches... If you'd like to order a yardage book featuring Daniel's work, you can do so here.
Without further ado, we want to highlight our newest partner, Daniel Smith to the team!
Poppy Ridge - Merlot Hole #8
Q: Tell us a little about yourself?
A: I'm a highly passionate golfer who grew up playing competitively and enjoys integrating the game within my responsibilities and goals. I like to intuitively design and draw landscapes and structures, naturally from an engineering family, and therefore expanding my knowledge of such by going to Penn State for Civil Engineering. My ultimate goal is to combine my interests of golf and design into a career in golf course design and architecture. Every day, I work to grow my skills in golfing, drawing, designing, photography, and Photoshop.
Q: How long have you been sketching and where do you see yourself in 5 years? Do you see this as hobby or do you hope to pursue something “more” with it?
A: I can't tell you when I started sketching because I've always dabbled with it as a hobby. I like to consider it, for myself, as a necessary skill and lost art for all types of designers. In 5 years, I see myself starting at either a golf course architecture or civil engineering company.
