So extraordinary and realistic is her attention to detail that her oil paintings seem to come alive with a clarity that surpasses the camera.
Hartough’s painting style, a classic and elegant rendering of famous golf holes, reveals her attention to detail and realistic perspective, and captures the dramatic mood and natural beauty of each landscape. So extraordinary and realistic is her attention to detail that her oil paintings seem to come alive with a clarity that surpasses the camera.

Celebrate the Heritage with Linda Hartough
“It's a challenge to make a great painting and still depict a golfer's favorite scene, but my goal is to make any work of art I create transcend the scene depicted.
When you look at a golf hole, you have to see what players like about it - how a golfer plays it.
Then you have to see it as a landscape - as a work of fine art.” - Linda Hartough on her website
