Snapshots

Lovely layout in a rural setting


Front 9 presents opportunities to score on most holes; back 9 clamps down


Downhill dogleg par 5 7th has a tree to finesse your way by on your second shot


Long dogleg left, eventually over water to an extremely elevated green is a magnificent closing hole


Can play straight through mild winters


Can get narrow in spots

Pros:

  • In a rural setting, but right off Route 83
  • Superior burgers at the turn

Cons:

  • Route 83 can be a pain in the neck to get through Massachusetts on
  • If you’re on your game, front 9 can be easily overpowered

You’re Right On Course
