Sussex Pines Country Club, is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Georgetown, Delaware.
Note: This is a private course, but, they have extended play to any active duty military free of charge (must show ID Card). This is a very classy gesture that no doubt is indicative of the whole club.
Sussex Pines Country Club, southeast of Georgetown, opened as a nine-hole facility in 1967. Edmund Ault, the popular Mid-Atlantic golf architect, laid out the original course. The "new" nine, laid out by golf architect Al Janis, opened in 1989.
This flat course has greens that can be difficult to read. In addition, many of the fairways are lined with mature trees.
#14, a 494-yard, par 5, is the signature hole. This hole has an undulating, two-tiered green and pine trees running along both sides of the fairway. Water also runs 200 yards down the left side of the fairway, and the green is well protected by sand bunkers.
Five of the holes are open to the elements. The other thirteen are primarily in the tall woods. Water comes into play on about six holes. For those having a really bad day, however, water comes into play on a few more holes. Wind conditions will usually dictate how easy the round will be.
The regular tees measure 6450 yards, par is 72, and the USGA slope rating is 122. That's about a stroke harder than average.
Guests must be accompanied by a member in order to play the course.
