Wawenock Golf Club – Walpole, ME

25 Oct
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

October 11, 2017

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 →

Rolling Green Golf Course – Morrill, NE

Hole #1 – Par 4, 282 yards. Railroad track running down left side.

Strange day on the old golf links. It played as a Tale of Two 4 1/2’s”.  Holes 1-4 played through rain, thunder (but no lightning), wind, and around the perimeter of the course. Holes 5-9… Read more →

Lambert’s Point Golf Course – Norfolk, VA

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 →

The Springs at Borrego RV Resort and Golf Course – Borrego Springs, CA

Hole #1…or in my case, Hole #9

First things first, you need: 1) A road-hugging convertible sports car. 2) A full tank of gas. 3) An empty bladder. 4) Dramamine. Let’s see how prepared I was… 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 →
