Golfweek & Golf Magazine Top Courses Delaware

Looking at planning a trip this summer. I have played all the courses on Golfweek Magazines List of Top Courses You Can Play ... in Florida, Nebraska and South Carolina and more than 1/2 of those listed for New York.

Since I will be in the Phiily area, I thought I would knock out the five courses that are listed for Delaware... below are the 2019 list of courses, any comments, insights, suggestions would be appreciated.

Bayside Resort GC, Fenwick Island

Bear Trap Dunes, Bethany Beach

Baywood Greens, Long Neck

White Clay Creek, Wilmington

Deerfield Golf & Tennis Club, Newark

Based on what I have been told so far, the first three listed courses are near each other, and I should look for lodging that is close and I can stay there and it would be a short drive to each of the courses.  Any recommendations for accommodations would be appreciated.  THANKS

The only one I’ve played is Deerfield, but that’s a very nice course. Not sure I’d take a road trip to play it, but it’s solid.

I've played Baywood Greens several times on annual Ocean City MD golf trips. It's always the best course we play each week. As far as distance to other courses Delaware is so small of a state that no drive is ever more than about an hour and a half. I'd play all of them and if I had time spend a few days in Atlantic City NJ which has 20 great courses within 30 minutes or so.

    • Head of my home organization has approved my involvement with this excursion.. So barring anything out of my control I am looking forward to it. Big part of the reason for my immediate interest is that these courses (especially Mammoth) were already on my short list of destinations to plan a trip next year including Cabot Cliffs/Links and Streamsong, which I will plan for the following years to come now.  Anyway, couldn't be happier to join this group. Hopefully the planet will still be rotating Eastward next July as it is today...😉 
    • It certainly could depend on the format.  If you need 4 scores from 5 players, for instance, maybe you could take a flyer on one guy like that.  If its match play, maybe you can take a risk on losing just one match really quickly.  But if you put out 6 players needing 6 scores, do you take the chance that one player's poor day kills the entire team's chances?  I'd still take solid and steady in most circumstances, I'd still prefer to BE Mr. Consistent.
    • Well, played final round at home course yesterday and checked off #10.  Should have pared #17 but stupid 3 putt, should not have happened!  Overall for the year I golfed 11 rounds at the course, got par on 12 holes, no birdies.  The holes I failed to par are the 1,2,3,4,10 & 14 Handicap holes. The #14 handicap hole was a par-3 and I can't believe I never got par on it.  The #10 handicap was the hole I 3-putted for bogey yesterday.  
    • I think in a big match, like an NCAA Championship, the coach might want to roll the dice and go with Mr. Erratic to have a chance of winning.  Or of finishing last.  The "all-or-nothing approach" .
    • I've never been on a college golf team, or even high school, but I think Mr. Erratic might not get a lot of playing time.  If the coach can't depend on you to at least play "decent", why would he select you to play you at all?  I'd rather be Mr. Consistent.
