Number Nine is the front nine's most challenging hole. Long- Uphill- with bunkers guarding the dogleg right. Missing left is safe but lengthens an already long hole. Most of us should approach the left side of the green to avoid a front fright bunker and to take advantage of a gentle slope right on the putting surface.

The Deli at Washington County Golf Course offers a variety of sandwiches, burgers, wraps, and daily specials. In addition, we provide a wide assortment of beverages: Coca-Cola products, Powerade, Arnold-Palmer Ice Tea, and a selection of over 30 Beers and Malt Beverages.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf.

It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
