Golf Digest 25 Best 9 Hole Courses

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I was reading Golf World ( the issue with the Ping Eye2 on the cover) and found out that the #2 rated 9-hole course (Whitinsville GC) is about 2 or 3 towns away. It is a Ross design, and judging by the crappy website, it looks really private, they don't even list membership prices (usually the inexpensive places do). So it seems like i most likely will never be able to play it. Too bad. Well, thats about it. This ever happen to anyone?

Re: Golf Digest 25 Best 9 Hole Courses

there's a 9 hole course about 10 miles away from my house that i stumbled upon while taking the scenic route home. I never knew there was a course there. I peeked around and it became clear that they didn't want people to know that it was there. It's really nice though, fantastic condition. Like you, I doubt i'll ever play there either.

i have this short easy course ill give the website and judge if a player that has only played there twice could do nine holes in about 5 over. www.lumphanangolfclub.com there is pictures of the holes and the scorecard. My friends who play there a lot doubted it was possible

Re: Golf Digest 25 Best 9 Hole Courses

I like the idea of calling a private club in these economic times... They'd almost be crazy to say no to $120... unless they are Cypress point, or Augusta National. This was a seriously good suggestion!
Besides what's the worst they could do, say no you need a sponsor... if they say this, ask for a list of names who would be willing, you are trying to give them money a good sum of money to play a game on their grass. Maybe it's just me and a topic for another thread, but sometimes I feel that private clubs could make a killing from opening a few slots for non members... If I were in charge of a struggling club, I sure would!

I'm going to guess that Ansley Golf Club in Atlanta is one of those 25 courses. Am I right?

I play in the UK and had my first ever round on the par 3 nine hole course at Chesfield Downs, Hertfordshire. Is maintained to proper course standard so (unlike most of the other par 3s I've played on) the greens are actually decent and sizeable.

And I've still never played there! b2_tongue.gif I hear nothing but good things though.

Also, I probably should have included a link in the OP to the article I was talking about. 2010 jamo was stupid. Three and a half years late, here's the link: http://www.golfdigest.com/golf-courses/2010-02/nine-hole-courses-whitten

@jamo, @wils5150, very cool.  My wife grew up in Whitinsville and her family lives about 10 min away now (right by Blackstone National).  I'll definitely keep an eye on golfnow next time I go. 

 

 

edit:  and they post the membership info on their website.  $2,800 for a full membership.  Only $1300 if you're between 21-30.
