American Classic Golf Club – Lewes, DE

July 4, 2017

Hole #3 – Par 4, 285 yards (white). Couple of very penal bunkers.

The mystery has been solved! I was confused (nothing new) as I searched the internet about golf courses in the Lewes/Rehoboth Beach area of Delaware. If you have ever searched for golf courses in Delaware you will understand – there just aren’t that many. Even harder if you are seeking a 9-hole course. I was excited when I found the Heritage Inn and Golf Club website. The confusing part was there wasn’t much information about the golf club. I decided to go another route and we made our tee time at American Classic Golf Club in Lewes (the first town in the first state) and Britt, the course manager, was the one who helped solve the mystery.

Hole #1 – Par 4, 311 yards (maroon). Water everywhere.

Water, bunkers, hills, and fast greens; more water, bunkers, hills, and fast greens; and even more water, bunkers, hills, and fast greens. That is what you will find at Captains Cove Golf & Yacht Club in Greenbackville, VA. Greenbackville – it sounds like a made up name as in the movie Read more →

The Course at Pettys Park

Entrance to The Course at Petteys Park…aka Bunker Hill Country Club

I’ve passed this course numerous times throughout the years as I cruised I-76 from Denver to Nebraska. I was interested in discovering how this Colorado course had acquired the name of Bunker Hill Golf Course. Boston, MA, I understand; Brush, CO, not so much. Here is what I found out… Read more →

National City GC #7

Hole #7 – Par 4, 310 yards. Need some elevation on that tee shot!

It has rained for 40 days and 40 nights in the San Diego area. As my ark pulled into the parking lot at National City Golf Course, the clouds parted; the sun came out; and we played golf. Read more →

Port Townsend GC #7

Chief Chetzemoka stands over Hole #7 and welcomes you to the course.

I entered the hallowed grounds of Port Townsend Golf Club and was greeted by Chief Chetzemoka just as he has welcomed pioneers since 1854. A friend to the white settlers who entered the area many years ago, I was hoping for that friendly experience as I approached the first tee box.  Read more →

Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club – Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada

NOTL Golf Club #5

Hole #5 with Lake Ontario on left side of tee box.

It was a cold, rainy, and blustery day on the golf links. I tried to steady myself as I bent down to expertly form my tee out of a small pile of wet sand. I placed my gutty on the tee and extracted my brassie from its well-worn leather bag. I then proceeded to thrash my tee shot dead right into the Firth of Forth (or is it Forth of Firth) or better yet, was it just a moment of time travel and my ball was just resting at the bottom of Lake Ontario?
