Golf Digest 25 Best 9 Hole Courses

28 posts in this topic

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?

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

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 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! :-P 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
