Driving along Route 1 from just north of Lewes to Fenwick Island offers a wealth of beautiful vistas and plenty of alluring things to do to the east. But look to the west and you’ll find other enticing options, especially if you’re a golfer. There you’ll find a handful of public golf courses enjoyed by visitors and residents alike, regardless of skill level.


We asked the pros at those links to give us the scoop on how to play each course, the toughest holes (or the most scenic), and the perks available after your round. Sure, golf can be an expensive, time-consuming hobby, but there are plenty of opportunities to get in a quick nine (or 18!) and, if you time it right, do so at a bargain price. Whether you like to play a round with buddies or introduce family members to a sport they can enjoy throughout their adult lives, we’ve teed up options to consider.
