Playing a round of golf with a drone

Sometimes we really love our job, and a job this week of our popular golf course drone service was particularly enjoyable. We were commissioned to film all 18 holes by drone to give a golf balls perspective of Kendal Golf course in Cumbria. It’s more like playing a round of golf by drone, we drive around the course in a golf buggy, flying from the tee, over the fairway and then onto the green to film the pin.

To spice things up we try to capture each hole in one flight – a drone hole in one. At Kendal golf club, we managed 12 drone hole in ones. Although a couple of tricky holes (13 Cunswick & 16  Auld Grey Town) we managed to bogey (each hole took 5 filming attempts to get right. The views of the Lake District from the golf course are breathtaking.
