January 11th was Ben Crenshaw’s 66th birthday and the Criquet team posted this sweet shot of the two-time Masters champion practicing at Lions Muni, which he’s now working to save from University of Texas development.

From Criquet:

Happy Birthday Ben Crenshaw. Thank you for your dedication to the game and to preserving Lions Municipal Golf Course (@savemuny) here in Austin. Photo by @brenthumphreysphoto for @gardenandgun

And Ben today playing Lions…

Ben Crenshaw turns 66 today, and we're guessing he'll be able to shoot his age just fine for awhile. Here he is at his childhood haunt, @savemuny in #atx. Said Jack Nicklaus to @matt_ginella , "While the game has given so much to Ben, he continues to give back through his work as a wonderful designer and a true ambassador." What's your favorite Coore-Crenshaw design? (πŸ“Έ @brandontuckergc )

Most won’t ever get in the gates of Seth Raynor's Mountain Lake, but at least we know they have a mean Biarritz thanks to the Outpost Club:

What better way to start off the OC year than with a Seth Raynor gem. #biarritz #sethraynor #raynorretreat #whyilovethisgame #golf #golflife #golfcourse #golfcoursephotography #intsagolf #golfstagram photo by @mariovbellomo

A mesmerizing drone shot of Pebble Beach’s glorious 7th hole is also a reminder that the green has virtually none of its original shape:

Think you could hit the green from here? 🎯 πŸ“· @hakan_paris #mypebblebeach #pebblebeach #7thhole #par3 . . . #golfstagram #heavenonearth #top100golf #beautifulgolfcourses #dronephotography #aerialview
