Roanoke Times – 2008 golf guide: The area’s best five courses

If you have not read in the Roanoke Times – 2008 golf guide: The area’s best five courses:
And a few that anyone can play. CLICK HERE FOR STORY:

Ellis Maples created a gem of a routing here, with several of the area’s best holes. In fact, [Nos.] 16, 9, and 12 may be the best par 3, 4, and 5 in Roanoke.” — Wade Whitehead, former Patrick Henry High golf coach

3. Countryside Golf Club – Check this out, Roanoke City bigwigs. According to the voters here, this golf course should stay put and not be buried under some sort of development project. While the city-owned course hasn’t had enough money to keep it in A-1 condition for years, there’s little argument that Countryside has one of the best layouts in the area. It was good enough to play host to a VPGA Open in 1981, won by Bobby Wadkins. Designed by Ellis Maples, the course’s five par 3s from the tips may be second to none as a group in this area in degree of difficulty.
