Hole #9 – Pond to carry on your last iron shot of the day – Good Luck!

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.

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 →

Hole #6 – Palm trees swaying in the distance

Today, Always Time for 9 wished our name was Always Time for 18. But before I judge too quickly, let’s review the 9-hole Balboa Park Golf Course. It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s Read more →

Mount Meadows GC #7

Fairway at Hole #7 – At least it has a nice view!

“Great 9-hole golf, brought the kids out for a great day of golf”. This review was posted one month before I visited this course (please imagine my air-quotes). After finally finding the course, my conclusion about the golfer who posted this was… Read more →
