The Beatles pictured on several golf courses

I saw this comical picture of The Beatles attempting to putt with irons on the cover an imported single of Eight Days A Week which my forefathers wouldn’t have seen in England. It was taken in 1963 on a Pete Dye course in Indianapolis in the grounds of the Indy 500.

They used golf courses just for photo locations as they had no interest in playing. Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever had films shot at Knole Park in Kent and there was another photo shoot at Allerton GC near their homes in Liverpool. Lee Park GC in Liverpool was where John Lennon and The Quarrymen did their first audition to play at The Cavern Club in 1956.038EB2FD-CD9E-4C37-B7CE-66191A9D24D2
