Ah, fall. My favorite time of the year, with one glaring downside — shorter days. I guess that’s Mother Nature’s way of saying, “You can’t have it all.”
But you can have most of it, including more manageable temperatures and, especially in New England, a riot of color. For golfers, autumn offers an exceptional experience, given that so many courses are located in visually stunning areas.
So, given the aforementioned shorter days, and the fact that most of us still need to work for a living, I find myself looking to get myself a quick nine holes during the fall months. That’s not to say that you can’t grab 18 on the weekends, or your days off (though autumn is such a great time to ride my bike, I still run into a time crunch). As a result, we’re going to highlight a number of top-notch nine-hole courses around the region.
