Nice walk on a Thursday morning.

Nice walk on a Thursday morning. I have played this course many times and during this social distancing times it couldn’t have been more perfect. I prepaid the greens fees and there was no contact with anybody at the course except the starter who sent us right out. Course rules were walking only, it was a beautiful morning and fairways are fairly generous, greens were in very good shape...more than worth the $24 special.

First Time Playing

A long car ride from Cape Cod to play 9 holes

My wife and I played the Red course with another couple from Massachusetts. The clubhouse is not open. Payment is made via credit card at the starter shack. It is extremely well organized keeping in mind it was over 70 degrees for the first time this spring.

There are only white tee markers. No red markers at all.

The course overall was in fantastic condition. The green speed was medium but very consistent on all 9 holes.

I wish the Governor of Massachusetts would go there to see how a golf course can be safely managed in spite of the coronavirus challenges.

very disappointed

Fairways in very poor condition. Lots of bare spots along with clover and weeds.I would guess that due to course restricted to nine hole play upkeep is minimal
Greens were decent.
Won,t return to play this course.

First Round of the Year

This course was in surprising good shape. It was not wet and most of the winter debris had been removed. This is a great 9 hole layout with some very difficult holes. The 7th is a beautiful hole and fun to play.
