One of my favorite Ross layouts

Bass River has been changed and flipped nines since the original Ross design but you see his hands all over this layout. Playing from the tips makes for an interesting round, especially right out of the gate with three very tight chutes to hit out of on the tees to start your round. In usual Ross fashion, the course does a lot of back and forth allowing you to spray some and end up n another fairway with a have shots into your greens. Bass River also has the trademark Ross turtle back greens on several holes. The course now finishes with a fun par 3 that gives amazing views of the Bass River from the tee. I would highly recommend this course to anyone making their way to Cape Cod.

Ross gem

A great Donald Ross. Not long, but challenging. Small, undulating greens. Great turf coverage throughout. Great views. Different shots required throughout. Highly recommended.

Sunday with buddies

Bass river a really nice treat. Staff we friendly and helpful. Course in great shape. Some really cool holes. #9. #11. # 13. All good holes. Only reason it's not 5 star is it starts w a par 3. But that's a building thing. Play here if you can!!

Great golf course

Played early on a Saturday morning, pace of play was a little slow due to it being peak season on the Cape. Some really great and challenging holes, #5 #9 #10 #11. Conditions were excellent tee to green. Hole #9 is a nice signature hole with Bass River running alongside. 19th hole is the best on the Cape.

Comfortable, like a pair of slippers

Well designed, walkable course. Wide fairways for tee shots, but small greens demand good iron play. Front is par 34 & the back, which is more open, is par 38. Course makes you pay attention to score well, but does beat you up if you're a little off. Back patio with river view is the best 19th hole on the Cape.
