Lambert’s Point Golf Course – Norfolk, VA

09 Sep
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

09 Aug
August 9, 2017

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

04 Jul
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.

Captains Cove Golf & Yacht Club – Greenbackville, VA

09 Jun
June 9, 2017

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 →

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

01 Jan

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?
