Formerly the Lenox Hills Country Club, the land was purchased by the state and Bethpage State Park was created in the 1930s. Three of the park's courses were designed by A.W. Tillinghast, including the Black Course. When the 2002 U.S. Open was played at Bethpage, it marked the first time the championship ever had been played on a municipal facility. This image by Golf Digest Senior Staff Photographer Stephen Szurlej shows bunkers at Bethpage's Black Course, which some consider to be Tillinghast's finest work. The Black Course was ranked No. 5 in Golf Digest's 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses 2007-08.
The premium giclée print is produced on thick (310 gsm), textured watercolor paper made from alpha cellulous wood pulp that is acid free. It shares the same vivid colors, accuracy, and exceptional resolution that make giclée prints the standard for museums and galleries around the world.
The premium photographic print is digitally printed on high-gloss premium photographic paper. The result is a unique silver pearlescent finish with stunning visual impact and depth, suitable for museum or gallery display.
The stretched canvas print is the result of sophisticated digital printing technology in which the image is printed directly onto an artist-grade, 100% cotton canvas. The canvas is then expertly stretched around 1.5" wooden bars and carefully finished with hand-painted edges. An acrylic coating protects the stunning giclée print from dust, moisture and fading. (Canvas may not be available for all prints.)
