About The Golf Artist:
Mark Cool plays golf regularly at his country course in Rougemont, NC, sometimes up to 5 times a week. He walks and carries his bag always. He loves the rhythm of hitting and walking after the ball, the zen of being in nature and of noticing his emotions and degree of attachment to results.
He enjoys researching quotes from golf greats, golf movies and books and testing them out to see what his customers like. Some custom order quote requests have become regular items in the store.
Cool has a fascination with things from a bygone era, and he loves collecting old golf clubs and golf gear and learning about them. He enjoys the thrill of the hunt for cool vintage and antique golf clubs and golf artifacts like head covers, ball markers, divot fixers, and vintage leather bags to use in his art.
He picks up broken golf tees while he plays golf and incorporates them into art as well.
The golf artist’s workshop sits on 3 wooded acres with a creek in Efland, NC. It is open by appointment, and he also holds open studio events a few times a year, as well as attending some art and craft shows in the Southeast Region.
