Shoestring Production Company created a series of videos for Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, NJ. The six part series follows Golf Pro Ryan Fountaine across the championship golf course as he explains the rules of golf at Baltusrol. The on-location shoot utilized wireless lavs and a field recorder to record audio.
Baltusrol Golf Club, synonymous with championship golf, sits at the base of Baltusrol Mountain in northern New Jersey, only a stone’s throw from New York City. With a rich heritage that dates back to 1895, Baltusrol is considered one of the country’s premier golf clubs. Its two championship courses, the Lower and Upper, have played distinguished roles on the national stage since their creation by Golden Age architect A.W. Tillinghast in 1922. Together, the courses have hosted 17 major championships, including seven U.S. Opens and two PGA Championships.
