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.
