Golf Watercolour, The 15th at Harlech by Francis Bolton.
A great golfing watercolor on paper of the Royal St. David’s Golf Club in Wales. The golf picture of the 15th hole at Harlech is signed in the lower right corner by the artist ‘F.A. Bolton’ (1858-1943).
Since its foundation in 1894, the championship links of the Royal St. David’s Golf Club has occupied the dune land between Harlech Castle and the sea. Apart from the quality of the holes and severity of the test, the views of the Snowdon Mountains, the magnificent Castle and, at last, from the 16th tee, the Lleyn peninsular across Tremadog Bay, make Harlech one of the finest situations of any course in Britain. The course itself, measuring 6495 yards from the championship tees, is noted for a succession of long testing par four holes and five short holes, which vary in length and direction; a feature is the large size of the greens. The last five holes form a loop through the dunes that provide a finish the equal of any. Taken from www.harlech.com.
