Tribute to Charles Banks – A Golf Course Drone Video

Tribute done by LOFT
The second ever golf course drone video of the company.

One can not mention Raynor or Macdonald without Charles Banks being at least part of the conversation. Although his career was brief, he designed some of the worlds best golf courses.

After Seth Raynor died unexpectedly died in 1926, Charles Banks would complete 25 of Raynor’s unfinished projects for Seth’s estate. Although his career was brief, he built some of the world’s best golf courses. Charles Banks would also sadly pass at the age of 48. Had he lived, he would have been one of if not the most prolific golf course designers ever to touch the game.

About the Course
Forsgate Banks course is a well preserved representation of a classic Charles Banks design. Steep bunkers, swales and multi-tiered greens can give even the best golfers a troubling hole or two. Charles Banks makes the golfer evaluate risk versus reward for every approach shot.

Forsgate Country Club is located in Monroe Township, NJ. 45 minutes from both New York and Philadelphia, it is broadly recognized as a premier destination for golf, events, dining and weddings.

About the Production
Filmed by LOFT during 4 two hour filming sessions, the Banks Course was the company’s first golf film featuring a historically accepted “Founding Father” of American golf architecture. Both morning and evening golf course drone filming was employed. All FAA laws and guidelines were followed.
