Was not super impressed with this course. All the holes essentially sloped to one side. The holes overall were a little short for my preference. You could really tell they tried to pack the holes in as tight as they could. Convenient location from where I live, but unless you are in a similar situation, there are better courses to play in the area.

It's convenient if you live in Brighton and holes 14-18 aren't bad, but that's all this course has to offer. The front nine snakes up the side of a steep hill, making for a tough climb (or good leg workout) without a cart. The holes are packed in right next to one another and wayward balls flying your way should be expected. The cost isn't helping things either. We paid $27 for nine on Friday afternoon, when you can pay less and get on at better courses at the same time for 18. Ultimately the location near Boston College and the young professional crowd in Alston/Brighton still attract a fair number of players, but if you can play anywhere else, don't hesitate.
