"I really enjoy painting golf landscape. It is some of the most beautiful and varied landscape in the world combined with a deep, historical sense of tradition that transcends time. The painting is a success when both elements emerge." -Linda Hartough

About the RBC Heritage

Known for many years as the Heritage Classic, the RBC Heritage, organized by the Heritage Classic Foundation, had its début in 1969 at the Harbour Town Golf Links at the Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island, S.C. The Harbour Town golf course was designed by Pete Dye with assistance from Jack Nicklaus. This year’s defending champion of the RBC Heritage is Jim Furyk.


About Linda Hartough

A confirmed artist since childhood, early in her career Hartough painted landscapes, portraits and horses. In 1984, Augusta National Golf Club commissioned her to paint its famous 13th hole, an event which propelled Hartough toward specialization as a golf-landscape painter. Since then, her work has achieved a distinguished status, displayed in the permanent collections of such legendary clubs as Augusta National, Laurel Valley, Pinehurst and Pine Valley, as well as in the personal collections of such golf notables as Jack Nicklaus, Raymond Floyd and Rees Jones. Her work is included in the collections of the USGA Museum, in Far Hills, N.J., and the Morris Museum of Art in Augusta, Ga.

Known for extraordinary attention to detail in her recreation of some of golf’s most beautiful holes, Hartough imbues her paintings with admiration for the scenery’s natural beauty and respect for the game’s history and tradition, elements which seem to emerge from the canvas.

Hartough’s paintings of various holes at Augusta National Golf Club are prized by collectors the world over. In addition, Hartough painted the first of her U.S. Open series in 1990 – commissioned by the U.S. Golf Association – a 25-year series she completed in 2014, as well as her official British Open Championship series from 1990-1999.

Hartough has been honored with the Golf Digest Lifetime Achievement Award. She is a Founding Trustee of the Academy of Golf Art, a professional society of golf artists established in 2004 to create an awareness and appreciation of golf art as a valuable segment of fine art.
