Suburban Skyview: Shadow golfers on the green in St. Charles

Late afternoon sun provides warmth and long shadows for this drone photo taken hovering over the third green at Pottawatomie Golf Course Friday, May 10, in St. Charles.

Seen from above, it’s hard to tell where the golfers end and the shadows begin.

The nine hole golf course has a little bit of everything and was originally designed in 1939 by the pioneer of golf course architecture, Robert Trent Jones, Sr., who used the Fox River when designing the course.

The fairways, which are fairly wide open are lined with trees. The Fox River comes into play on four of the nine holes.

The river is a 202-mile-long tributary of the Illinois River, flowing from southeastern Wisconsin to Ottawa, Illinois.

Native American tribes that lived near the Fox River included the Potawatomi, Sac, and Fox tribes.
