491: 9-Hole Courses Are Not Just for Practice, They Can Be Really Awesome!


491: Author Anthony Pioppi returns for the first time since 2006 to talk about the second edition of his book “To The Nines“. Anthony’s book looks at nineteen 9 hole layouts across the US that date back to the 1890s and really are the roots of the game in our country. These aren’t just executive par3 courses, these are great, challenging courses that were designed with 9 holes in mind. This could be an answer to golf’s dilemma of the game taking too long!


To The Nines is available on Amazon
