Scenic Knolls Golf Course – Mitchell, NE

28 Feb
February 28, 2018

Hole #2 – Par 4, 315 yards. Risk/reward hole.

Here are some of the comments I read about this course: a challenging track; need to think your way around the rolling terrain; name says it all – scenic & located on a high knoll; huge, undulating greens on which you will often three putt; difficulties include elevation changes, ponds, canals, side hill lies; and a good mix of short and long holes. But you can’t believe everything you read on the internet, correct? Read more →

Santa Ana GC, Santa Ana Pueblo, NM. Land of Enchantment!

Standing on the first tee, you find yourself surrounded by the Jemez Mountains to the west, the Sangre de Christos to the north, and the Sandia Mountains loom to the east – welcome to The Land of Enchantment. As Steve and I started our round on the Star Course, it felt more like The Land of Bewitchment.

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 →

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 →

American Classic Golf Club – Lewes, DE

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.
