edpaynepinehurst2A quick 9 anyone?

I’m a retired radio news guy from Philly (that’s me on the left, the statue of Payne trying to knock some sense into me after I gagged my way around Pinehurst #2 last summer).  I am an aging 5 handicap who is still delusional enough to obsess on game improvement despite my body’s daily protests.

More to the point, I’m a huge fan of 9 hole golf courses and a member of one — Sakima Country Club in Carneys Point, NJ.

I love everything about 9 holers, including the second loop around — the chance to get even with a hole that might have eaten my lunch the first time. This site will celebrate many of these courses, and I hope you’ll enjoy the places and the people.  Perhaps you’ll even be inspired to try a couple.  But be careful.  You might come away with a fresh understanding of how fast, reasonably priced, and how fun and pure golf can be.

By the way, if you have any suggestions for this website, or an addition to our courses list (a major work in progress), please use the contact link to shoot me an email.

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy!
