Over the past few years, perhaps due to an increase in work and family commitments, there has been a noticeable rise in the number of golfers interested in playing nine-hole courses. Although there are close to eight thousand such courses worldwide, how do golfers determine which are the best ones to play? In The Finest Nines
, golf writer and historian Anthony Pioppi highlights the twenty-five finest nine-hole courses in North America and details how to play each one. Some of the courses featured include:
Whitinsville Golf Club—Whitinsville, Massachusetts
Sweetens Cove Golf Club—South Pittsburg, Tennessee
Birchwood Country Club—Westport, Connecticut
LivingStone Golf Course—Calgary, Alberta
Aetna Springs Golf Course—Pope Valley, California
And many more!
This book also includes an interview with course designer and architect Mike Nuzzo about designing a nine-hole golf course in the modern era as well as profiles of courses that have a non-traditional number of holes.
The Finest Nines is the perfect gift for the avid golfer who does not have the time to play a full eighteen holes!
