Talbot Trail Golf Club – Wheatley, ON, Canada

Hole #9 – Par 3, 134 yards. “The Ant Hill”

We wanted to play golf on August 21, 2017 but thought the Solar Eclipse would interfere with our day. We decided to drive across the border into Canada so we wouldn’t be bothered by this event. Suddenly, when we reached the third hole, the earth around us darkened as the sun began to be eclipsed by the moon (those words sound vaguely familiar). So this event was not only occurring in the United States? Read more →

Copper Creek Golf Course – Farmington Hills, MI

Hole#8 – Par 3, 150 yards. Trouble left, right, and long.

Classic cars had been on the agenda for our first day in Michigan. We spent 12 hours eating, drinking, cruising (before drinking), and watching the procession of cars cruise Woodward Avenue during the annual Woodward Dream Cruise in the suburban Detroit area. One of the towns on the route is Birmingham and it just happens to have two 9-hole golf course. Couldn’t ask for a better pairing, right? Read more →

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

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 →

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 →
