Squirrel Run does not belong on this list. I am one of the reviewers and I gave it 5 stars and will play there again. Everything about it is great. But not a top 25 in New England. Quite a disservice to Newport National (RI) not to be near the top of the list. Acushnet CC (MA), Atlantic CC (MA), Richmond CC (RI), and probably a dozen others could make the list. Golf is alive and well in New England.
