St. Croix Country Club – Calais, ME

November 1, 2017

Hole #6 – Par 3, 126 yards. Clubhouse in background

It was an All Saints Day. Golf at St. Croix Country Club in the morning and a visit to St. Andrews in the afternoon. We couldn’t have experienced a much better day unless Read more →

Wawenock Golf Club – Walpole, ME

October 25, 2017

This clubhouse greets you as you enter the driveway. I feel good about this course.

“Wawenock” is the name of one of the bands or subgroups of the Penobscot tribe, located in what is now Maine. The name Wawenock means “round island” in the Penobscot language. I have to admit, every time I hear that name I think of Donald Penobscot from M*A*S*H. I’m not sure about the “island” part but there is plenty of water around this area. I do understand the “round” reference because Read more →

East Potomac Golf Course (White Course) – Washington, DC

Hole #8 – Par 4, 286 yards. Washington Monument seen from fairway.

We had one full day in Washington, DC. One Always Time for 9 team member had never visited our nation’s capitol. How do we visit Arlington National Cemetery, Lincoln Memorial, The White House, U.S. Capitol, Jefferson Memorial, Smithsonian, plus many more and still get in a round of golf? Here is how we accomplished everything in an eight hour time frame… Read more →

Lambert’s Point Golf Course – Norfolk, VA

September 9, 2017

Hole #3 – Par 3, 167 yards. Play it off the hill to the right?

We didn’t know what to expect. The reviews ranged from “this course was carved out of an industrial dump and that’s what it is…a course to avoid” to “the best 9-hole course I have ever played”. The Always Time for 9 team is continually up for a challenge, so we packed our bags and headed for Virginia to rate this course for ourselves. Is Lambert’s Point Golf Course an Ace or a Double Bogey? Read more →

Golden Horseshoe Golf Club (Spotswood Course) – Williamsburg, VA

Hole #8 – Par 3, 100 yards (white). Don’t be short!

“Best nine-hole short course in the country”. That is how it has been described by Golf Magazine. However, the real test of the Spotswood Course came when the crack team at Always Time for 9 hit the links in May of 2017. After intense scrutiny, the course scores have been tabulated and the results are Read more →

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.
