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.

    • I have recently started scoring better. And learned to play “boring” or low-event golf.    My question is, would you recommend someone to play low-event golf? I know in LSW you and Dave talk about shot zones and playing for the center of green and such. But how to you do that when you’re fighting a one-way miss?
    • Working on my hip rotation to ensure I dont get a reverse spine tilt during my back swing. Will be doing some Yoga as well to work on my general flexibility. 
    • A swing video would help us see how flexible you really are in your swing. Although 140 yards with a 7i is pretty good imo.
    • I’ll give you a little inside information. The ZX series of irons, woods, hybrids, and utilities will be released in the US in January 2021. (You may be able to procure a set from Europe prior to then, but I don’t really want to pay an import fee). First welcome to TST. Secondly what exactly are you looking for when it comes to ball-flight. I play C-Taper 125S in my irons to try to bring my ball flight down, but I still have 110 foot peak height, who would have thunk it. Here’s an out of the box suggestion that might help your decision, see if you can find a 7-iron 785 head on EBay (I’m not sure you can but it’s worth a shot), or buy 2 identical Maltby TE Forged 7-irons, if they have Project X get one with 6.5 hard-stepped and one with 7.0 soft-stepped. Go to the range and see if you notice a difference. Most importantly. It’s probably not that big of a deal at our handicap level. We can shoot 85 about as easily as we can shoot 70. Sharpen your tools and learn to play boring golf. It’ll change the way you play the game.
    • Recently I have been doing something I haven’t done in a while. Avoiding blow-up rounds. I have been playing the kind of golf I’ve wanted to always play. Boring. Pedestrian. Stay out of the shit, call the zoo kind of rounds. Ho-hum kind of golf. The last round I shot in the 80s was in August and that was an 81. My last five rounds have been 73, 76, 78, 73, 71. The last one was pretty boring. I had back to back bogeys on the 2nd and 3rd holes, then birdied the 5th and 6th (pedestrian birdie at 5, 2 putt at the par 5 after a 3-wood on the green straight into the fan from 235 yards) Nearly drove the 395-yard 6th (relax it was straight downwind and as the crow flies its only 340), got up and down for birdie. Then made 12 boring pars in a row for an even-par 71. 12 GIR, 18 nGiR, putted average. I guess I’ve learned how to be that boring golfer. I’ve been fighting a bit of a hook, so I said, “The hell with it, it’s what I’ve got. I’ll just adjust my target accordingly”. I guess having a one-way miss is a good problem to have.
