Critics, upstate: Chen enjoys DuPont Country Club, “especially since its redesign a few years back,” he says. “I scored an 80 last year on the course, but I think I made a deal with the devil that round.” There are three 18-hole golf courses of varying difficulty: the DuPont Championship Course, the Nemours Course and the Montchanin Course for beginners. (1001 Rockland Road, Wilmington, 421-1722)
Critics, downstate: The centerpiece of a lush neighborhood, Kings Creek Country Club blends seamlessly with its pastoral surroundings. “The course has more character than any other course in the area,” says Meoli, a member since 1991. “The way it’s laid out, you have to manage your shots well. I love how it snakes through the neighborhoods, and you can even get a glimpse of the bay.” (1 Kings Creek Circle, Rehoboth Beach, 227-8953)
