Playing around with a drone at Burstwick

A couple of weeks ago Richard Cook of Humber Highcams Ltd brought his DJI Inspire 1 professional drone to the golf club one evening and he got some fantastic shots on the course. As time was limited and the sun insisted on going behind the clouds intermittently we didn't get as many as we'd have liked, but we're over the moon with the results for a first attempt.

As Richard is a fully CAA approved drone pilot with all the required insurance, he went through the necessary checks beforehand including risk assessments, identifying sensitive areas, checking local flight plans etc, then we headed out for take-off.

Limited by time and weather conditions we got straight out and took some videos and stills with this fantastic piece of kit, it's amazing to see the perspective the drone achieved just a few metres in the air.

It's amazing to see how the course has progressed in the last few years, and these drone shots give a great view of the trees maturing around each hole.

Below is one of a few short videos Richard took of the course, you can view the rest by going to the Burstwick Country Golf YouTube channel here.
