Overview

To the Nines will introduce you to a whole new golfing experience by sharing the stories of nineteen nine-hole layouts across the country. Fenwick, Katherine Hepburn's playground, dates back to the 1890s. Just before a hurricane destroyed her family home in 1938, Hepburn aced Fenwick's ninth hole and shot even par. Long before Mike Keiser set out to turn a chunk of Oregon coast into one of the world's great golf destinations, he built The Dunes Club, easily the finest nine-hole course of the modern era. To the Nines will send you on a mission to discover the roots of the game, and to seek out your own unique and unheralded courses. This second edition includes recent renovations and rebunkering of several of these classic “nines” as well as a chapter on a newly built course.

Editorial Reviews

Mike Davis
Nine-hole rounds are a great way to enjoy the game, and in this book, Anthony Pioppi does a wonderful job bringing to life some of the country’s most delightful nine-hole courses.
Chris Millard
Anthony Pioppi is the chief steward of America’s nine-hole golf courses. A historian at heart with an architect’s eye and a writer’s touch, Anthony is uniquely suited to escort us through the nine-hole crevices and crannies of golf’s past and—if you read today’s headlines—its future. As the nine-hole round regains importance, To The Nines is an informative guide and a fun addition to any golf lover’s library.
