10 golf-related Instagram accounts every golf lover should follow



For us golf addicts, there aren’t many days of the week where we don’t wish we could temporarily forget about the obligations of the real world (work, school, errands) and get out onto the course. Sadly, until the day on the calendar begins with S or the clock strikes 5 P.M., these obligations usually take priority over golf. That doesn’t mean you can’t still get your golf fix in other ways, however.

Here’s an incomplete list of 10 Instagram profiles every golf lover should follow.

1. Channing Benjamin

  • A true innovator in the field of golf photography, Channing Benjamin captures some of California’s finest courses. From Tom Fazio’s desert oasis, Madison Club, to Dr. Mackenzie’s masterpiece in Monterey, the Cypress Point Club, Benjamin is an absolute must follow.

2. Sugarloaf Social Club

  • An unofficial country club of sorts with one common factor in members: a love of the culture and traditions of golf. From classic course architecture to bespoke golf accessories, “SSC” is another great follow.

3. GolfCourseGram

  • For those with a penchant for the history of the game, as well as classic course architecture, there are few better profiles than GolfCourseGram.


4. Imperial Hats

  • Enough said. Arguably the best unstructured hats and tour visors ever known to the world of golf.

5. Mike Seidl Photography

  • Another golf architecture and landscape profile. Sense a trend?

6. GolfWRX

  • This story wouldn’t be complete without a plug of every gear head’s favorite Instagram account. If you love GolfWRX, you’ll love our Instagram.


7. Golf Threads Blog

  • Finally, a break from the course architecture trend. Check out this profile for the latest in golf apparel and style.

8. Kevin Tway

  • A frequent social media poster, Kevin Tway gives a good look inside the ropes week to week on Tour. Plus, have you ever seen someone hit a golf ball this hard?


9. Bluegrass Fairway

  • Beautiful made-in-America golf accessories, primarily leather products.

10. Bryson Dechambeau

  • After last week’s Omega Desert Challenge, touring professional Edouardo Molinari took to Twitter to declare Dechambeau, “One of the best players I’ve ever seen.” Plus, you won’t find many other players with a more unique practice regimen.

    This seems more of your personal list than something “all golf lovers” must follow. To each their own – cheers

Hidden Gem of the Day: Kankakee Elks Country Club in St Anne, Illinois



These aren’t the traditional “top-100” golf courses in America, or the ultra-private golf clubs you can’t get onto. These are the hidden gems; they’re accessible to the public, they cost less than $50, but they’re unique, beautiful and fun to play in their own right. We recently asked our GolfWRX Members to help us find these “hidden gems.” We’re treating this as a bucket list of golf courses to play across the country, and the world. If you have a personal favorite hidden gem, submit it here!

Today’s Hidden Gem of the Day was submitted by GolfWRX member schley, who takes us to Kankakee Elks Country Club in St Anne, Illinois. The track was built in 1926, and in schley’s description, he claims that the course is so impressive that it has the potential to rival any other in the area.

“An old Langford/Moreau design that could easily be one of the top 10 in Illinois with some tree removal and minor work on bunkers. One hour south of Chicago and love the course for it is cheap as well (under $50 bucks on a Saturday morning).”

According to Kankakee Elks Country Club’s website, 18 holes during the week can be played for $24, while to play on the weekend the rate rises to $30.




Check out the full forum thread here, and submit your Hidden Gem.
