Great Condition

Great to be able to play a beautiful course that is in pristine condition this late in the season (early November).

My only knock is the golf carts... although great to have GPS, electronic scoring, and pin placements, I was frequently beeped at, automatically slowed down, and occasionally stopped when attempting to go somewhere that was off a pre-defined area - a few times this restricted area was on the paved golf path - and my speed was slowed to 2 MPH. frustrating, not to mention a little remedial for golf guests who you should trust to know how to drive the cart properly.

Best course around!

This course is elite in all the right ways. Make sure to warm up at the complimentary range and roll a few putts before heading out. Each hole presents a new challenge and will have you digging through the bag. Beautiful looks from the tee, plush fairways, and fast greens will remind you why you fell in love with this sport in the first place.

great opportunity to play

You need to keep the ball in the fairway to score good here as I had trouble on many holes but finished the last 4 holes with par's because they had been in the fairway and was rewarded with an 89 , I generally do not hit balls before tee off but today I should have.

I have played this course about 3 times and enjoy it when I get a chance to play, the staff are very nice and freindly and the upstairs area is a bonus at the end of the round.

Beautiful Course

This is my favorite course in upper Cape Cod area.
It is really a joy to play. The grass is lush on the fairways and the greens are amazingly good.
Your fee for the round include all the extras you find at premium courses: arrival assistance, a bucket of balls, GPS on cart, snack bar on 7 and 14 (same snack bar) and water on many holes.
There is a restaurant upstairs in the club house and a well equipped snack bar downstairs, plus a big pro shop.

Glad that you could enjoy your round in spite of the weather conditions. We regret that you did not get experience the Waverly grille as it would have capped off your round. The grille is usually open unless course play is extremely light. Hope to see you again soon.

Great course, worst staff

This is the second time we’ve run into an issue with the staff here. We were in the first fairway when the starter skidded his cart between us and said “the rules here are that we don’t go off until the starter says so!” We sat in silent shock and had no idea what he was talking about. I offered that the starter did in fact tell us to go as someone did on the teebox. He responded that that person wasn’t the starter and that he’d been “reprimanded.” I suppose we were thrown off by the fact that the guy we thought to be the starter was dressed in a Waverly Oaks uniform and acting like a starter. If they’re having trouble making sure the proper person is at the proper post I don’t think we should have to deal with being yelled at. Those two things don’t seem to track. After we showed him our cart slips and tee time receipts, I think he realized that we were just doing what we thought we were supposed to do, but he never like apologized for the misunderstanding, which I found odd because we were apologizing profusely and hadn't done anything wrong. It's a great course, unreal layout and in great shape - greens were running like 10-11, it was magical. But definitely don't plan like an outing or anything like that here, any time that you have to deal with the course staff you're taking your life in your hands! Pinehills is right across the street and they always seem to value you over there so that'd be my recommendation.

We are glad that you felt our course was "magical" on your day of play. Waverly Oaks always strives to make everyone's golf day special. We do apologize for your experience on the day you played. We have discussed the situation with the appropriate employees. Although not communicated correctly to you the starter in the cart was concerned as you party teed off ahead of your scheduled tee time and he was working diligently to keep the pace of play on track as we had a very full tee sheet. We have received so many complements on our staff that we regret your situation did not live up to our standards. We would be glad to have you back again.

Windy and in the low 60’s

Staff was attentive and helpful. Course was in very good shape. Besides the weather the only other down side was that the snack shack was closed on this particular day.

Hidden Gem

I have played most of the courses in and around Plymouth, so I had high expectations before arriving . From the starter to the pro shop, all staff are very attentive to you, and do all they can to make your day at Waverly Oaks enjoyable. The course has the rolling hills and well manicured greens I expected, fairways in great shape also. Well worth the ride to South Plymouth from greater Boston, a true “Hidden Gem”!

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.
