Monday Mural - Annandale Golf

Andy | Monday, September 17, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

Annandale Golf And Curling Club is located in Ajax, Ontario and has four murals painted on the outside wall. The first mural was so badly covered with shrubs growing that I could not get a photo of it. Mural #2 represents the golfing that happens here.

This one represents the curling that takes place inside of the building.

There is no artist name on any of the murals. So I can't give credit. I'm not sure about this one but I think it has something to do with academics. These photos are a few months old and since that time the shrubs have been removed. After the that the murals were painted over and are gone forever. I'm linking to Monday Mural.

    1. I think I will stop by and ask them one day. They would never have lasted anyway because the whole golf course is slat for a housing subdivision sometime in the future.

  5. Never played any of these games. Last one makes a good contrast, which makes one wonder, whether these are sports for the wealth only.
    Please have a good Tuesday.

    1. They do have that look of needing a revitalizing paint job. I really did not pay much attention to murals until a couple of years ago. That's when I stared photo graphing them. Now my eyes are always on the lookout for them.

  7. The middle one is pretty good. I wonder if they painted them over to provide a base for the next round of murals or if they have gone in another direction.

  9. I played once at this club last year, but I don't remember the murals. The golf course is rather forgettable too...
