Nice Course. One of the Better Ones in MA

Ist time playing and it was a very good experience all around. Greeting staff, pro shop staff, and starter were all extremely friendly and welcoming.

Small bucket of balls with greens fee for driving range for warm up. Thumbs up here. Practice green right next to 1st tee, which is very convenient. Practice green also has some areas of elevation changes, which is good for practicing challenging putts. Thumbs up here too.

Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were in very good to excellent shape. the rough on the fridge of the fairway was a little high (5 in and thick). Balls were more difficult to get loft and distance, especially if the ball was buried. I wish it was cut about 1/2 inch or so shorter as I think that would have made it more fair.

Course has a lot of terrain and many holes require good club selection and thinking. All the holes have names, which is cool. Greens played true and somewhat fast but had subtle breaks in some directions. Challenging, but not unforgiving.

The course winds around and at holes 7 and 14 (where the front and back 9 intersect) there is a snack shack with food and drinks for purchase and bathrooms. Nice touch here.

Fairways rolled well, but it had rained recently and there were some damp/soft areas.

Course has electric carts with GPS. Plus here, but several times we were in what I thought was an okay area on or next to the fairway and the cart started buzz and go into limp mode telling us to return to the cart path. Frustrating sometimes. I don't think that the option of walking is permitted and you would be nuts if you tried with the course terrain.

Despite us going off relatively early (8:06 AM), we did 18 holes in 4 h 20 min with several minutes on many holes. Tee off times were 9 minutes apart. I will say the foursome in front of us got in the rough many times, so that may have had an influence. 4 h would be a decent pace of play for this course, with he terrain, and how it is spread out.

At $105/pp (full price at peak times) I think it is pricey. If you can play for less than $85, I think that is a very fair price and very much worth it.

The on complaint I have (minimal) was the lack of water coolers on the course. They had one I think at Hole #5, and I assume you can get water at the Snack Shack, (#7), the club house (after #9), again at the snack shack (#14) and then at #17. The problem with the clubhouse (after #9) is that you have to drive off of the course to get to it. Maybe a cooler at #11 or #10 would be better. Not a deal breaker, but something to be aware of if you play when it is hot.

OVERALL RECOMMEND as it is one of the better conditions courses in Eastern Mass and the Cape.

Nice overall golf environment

The course is fun to play. Each hole is quite different and you can make it as easy or difficult as you want based on tee selection. Course is in very nice condition. Greens have improved very nicely since earlier in the year, except for the first hole, so don't let that hole make you assume the rest of the greens are that bumpy. Just about all the other greens are in great shape. Excellent pace of play. A great value in the Plymouth area.

Great course, greens are in rough shape.

Great course, greens are in rough shape. Apparently they had some type of frost problem over the winter but the green surfaces are putting like they have been aerated. Probably won’t go back until I know the greens are better

Thank you for taking the time to review our course. Waverly did experience winter damage. We regret you were disappointed with the greens as many players have commented on the huge improvement over the last month. We hope you will be back in a couple weeks to give us another try.

One of the Top Courses in the Area

I love this golf course, I guess it just “suits my eye” but I find it to be a perfect blend of golf. Each hole is unique and has its own name which is pretty cool. Plenty of tee boxes and challenging shots but at the same time very fair golf that doesn’t punish good shots. Short and long par 5s, a drive-able par 4 12th, dangerous par 3s, lots of risk/rewards. Well maintained course, some of the greens are a little bumpy. The staff is very friendly and does a good job. Complimentary range balls, grass range, nice snack shack in the middle of the course that intersects 4 holes. The golf carts are so amazing, very comfortable leather sofa like seating, gps with scorekeeping and food/beverage ordering. I am so glad I finally got to play here and now I will be a regular because this is a great course where I play my best golf.

Greens were in terrible shape

For $95.00 I expected perfection the greens were bumping it was like playing winter golf. It’s ok to have problems but it should reflect in the price.

We regret that you were disappointed with the fee for you husband to ride. Waverly Oaks has a no spectator policy that is listed on our website. As a courtesy we allowed your husband to ride and the fee covers not allowing another golfer to take the spot.

Best Public Course On South Shore!

I have lived in area for over 20 years and Waverly Oaks is best public course available. Design is excellent with all holes being highly distinctive. Multiple tee boxes allow you to play it as easy or difficult as you want to. Great set of finishing holes as well (#14-#18) where a lot can happen. #17 Par 3 always fun as well as a challenge. For the money, I think it's the best value around this area. Restaurant is nice and serves good food and staff is always friendly. People compare it to Pine Hills but I think it is much better than those courses and less crowded..
