Good course, interesting layout and good conditions, tough with wind

Greens could be faster and more true

Plays pretty easy for low handicaps as it is short and greens relatively slow

$150 is a lot for this, probably get away with it given proximity to boston

We played at 7:20am and it was completely foggy conditions for the first 10 holes. Could NOT see the course off the tee and didn’t know where to even aim on the tee shot. There should be an exception to get a refund for these unplayable conditions. This course is beautiful under normal conditions. Very frustrating and took the fun out of playing golf.

You can't get better views of the Boston skyline at a course open to the public. I played the tips for the first time ever (my index is 10.5), and the black tees were manageable on the Milton 9, but they proved to be a bit tougher on the Granite 9. Conditions were great as always, and the greens were as fast as any I've played this year.The pace was painfully slow on the first 9, but a few groups dropped out after 9 and the second 9 had a lot less waiting. I can't afford to play here every weekend at $125, but $75 at 2:20 on a Sunday I can handle.

Played June 8. In town on business. Tees, fairways, and rough were in excellent condition. The greens had been recently bunched and were bumpy. They did hold approaches and chips with spin. Dramatic views. Don't fool yourself. If you don't like blind shots or if you are a "sprayer" of the golf ball, then don't play here. I was forced to play Milton after paying $150 for Granite and Quincy. Milton is a distant third to Granite and Quincy. Tee sheet was empty, 2 people on driving range. As I approach the very nice starter he tells me to play Quincy first to avoid traffic and then to see him after that 9 and I will go Granite. After my first 9, he then tells me I have to play Milton, "the member course" because of traffic. Of course at 8:30 there was no one on Granite. Now it's a zoo. So I played Milton. It is a joke compared the other two 9"s Very short, with chopped up fairways and narrow with drop offs and high rough. I was highly annoyed b/c Quincy and Granite would have been worth $150, not Milton and Quincy.

From the time we checked in till we left. The staff was outstanding. Two gentlemen greeted us with smiles and our free range balls. When we checked in with the starter he could not have been more pleasant and friendly. The course was in great shape. The greens had just been sanded but still rolled well. Definitely will be back!

I want to preface this review with the weather was not great when I played, which may have clouded my judgement. The course conditions were great and the skyline off in the distance was a unique to the Boston area. I simply thought the course was overpriced for what I paid. I also found it to be annoyingly hilly, but that's more of a personal preference.

Really liked this track. Liked the fact that there was a mixture of holes where you could let it fly off the tee and some that you had to play target golf on. It was in great shape. Played on a rainy, blustery day and the course handled the rain very well. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

Granite Links gives you the best views of the Boston sky line. Because of those views, the course is always windy. Conditions are always immaculate, but the layout can be a bit quirky at times. The Milton 9 is fairly straight forward with some short par 4's and reachable par 5's. There's a decent amount of elevation change, which I like. 4, 5, 7, 8, and 9 are decent chances at birdie.

The Granite 9 is a bit tougher to score, although 5 and 6 are short par 4's that are driveable. The tee shots are blind on both of those holes though. I paid $50 (plus the $3.49) for a mid week, early morning round and played the course in about 3 hours.

Got out at the Twilight rate at 4:40 and was able to finish 17 holes but got too dark for the 18th. Course was in great shape. Layout is a bit difficult with all the hills and quarrys making for some blind spots when hitting. Have the GPS screens in the golf carts were very helpful when strategizing shots.

I would 100% play here again for the same rate.

The course was in excellent shape for late April and with rain the previous 2 days the ground was wet but not too bad. Only inconvenience was the carts are programmed to keep you on the cart paths which is good for the fairways but more walking than we wanted. But the walking is good for us.

However, the weather was warm enough and although cloudy and foggy it was very acceptable. The views were OK but on a clear day they must be spectacular. Before we left the sun had broken through so we got a glimpse.

The staff was very friendly and the club house and restaurant were great.

There were four of us and we all will be back soon.
