Golf (not the car)

So, I want to make a smallish Lego-build as a present for a golf-fanatic. However, I'm specacularly without any inspiration so I've been looking around on the web. My googling skills are failing me too (there are a lot of MOC's of Golf cars) so I'm just going to ask for help.

Has any of you seen a MOC of a set of golfclubs or something golf-related that could inspire me or set me on my way? It should be quite small because it should be able to go on a desk (this person has got a new job), so first I was thinking of making a small course that you could actually play with (like a zen garden) but then that just seemed silly. Maybe a brick calendar or a photoframe with some golf clubs around?

Any tips are appreciated.

    Could you construct a golf bag large enough to be a pencil & pen holder?  BTW, how old is the person receiving the gift?

    ^ that sounds like and idea, although building a rounded object not always that straightforward.

    Hes 65 ( and not wanting to retire, hence the new job).

    Lego golf ball? Bright coloured tee and green plates for grass?

    Reading the instructable more carefully, I don't think this could make a ball to the correct scale :-(

    But the one on Tom Alphins site might...

    ^ put that on a tee, green base and add a driver head w/6" shaft...that'd be cool

    @legoboy, I guess you are starting to feel old?
  • snowhitiesnowhitie BelgiumMember Posts: 2,779
    Would this do as a club? Maybe all in the same colour ;)

    Aargh! I have a look for golf related Lego stuff on Google for 10 minutes and come back to find a minifig almost "playing in the rough".

    Anyway, is this sort of thing any good? It's not mine and looking on bricklink, the flag hasn't been in a set since 2003 but you can always use a couple of other flag and antenna pieces.

     
    I think it's a clever use of the "stick" part from levers as clubs. I don't know how you could keep them from falling out and getting lost though.

    ^^ that is a pretty clever use of a the 'stick' part indeed. I think I will go for a diorama like @monkeyroo, but then will definitely incorporate the golf bag with sticks like with this trolley. Or a ball, tea and flooring, with maybe the grass as an indenture to lie pencils flat in.

    Been trying to put a 'golfbag-pencil pot' but since they are usually quite thin the curved pieces Lego has aren't that great unless you make a really tall one but then you'd loose the pens too.

    Appreciate the brainstorming.

    Argh the legs. Where is the unsee button?  I have not got a clue on the golf front ideas so why did I visit this thread why?

    maybe a moc of  the 19th hole might be easier

    @monkey_roo

    I give that leg picture one more like so you can be immortilized in "Best of...." section.

    @E.E.

    I'll also be posing semi nude with magic kingdom set once we done with it here on the home front. Burt Reynolds style! 

    I think any fan of golf needs a custom Shooter McGavin Lego minifigure.
