Squirrel Run Golf Club offers some of the most scenic golf on the South Shore of Boston. The course is an executive layout that is gentle enough for beginners and even juniors to tackle with confidence. There are no par 5s on the golf course, most of the holes are under 140 yards. Even though you may not need distance, a strong short game will take you far on this course. Rough borders the fairways and there are a few strategically placed bunkers framing the greensides. Squirrel Run Golf Club is a very forgiving golf course overall and it may not be the most formidable test but there are a few tricky holes, like the par-3 13th. This is the golf course's signature hole that plays from an elevated tee over water to a green that slopes from back to front, and if that wasn't enough, the entire hole is at the mercy of the prevailing winds.

The course was in very good condition for this early in the season. The length is quite short with several of the holes under 100 yds.There are three nice par 4s to break things up on the front. Just make sure to use a GPS or rangefinder to double check the posted distances which were not always accurate.

I am undergoing physical therapy for rotator cuff tears and this is a great course to work on my irons and short game. Can have fun playing without having to take any hard swings. Very friendly staff, and was paired up with a really nice couple. Course and greens were in great shape. Have also played here when healthy and it is a nice course to fine tune your iron game.

Squirrel Run is an extremely well maintained, lushly groomed course, especially for a round at this price range. The staff is very relaxed (as is the leisurely pace of play). The rolling greens add complexity to make up for the shorter distances and the fairway grass is perfectly cut (something that is not always the case for public courses in New England). The clubhouse is basic, but caters ideally to the regular retirement community. Squirrel Run is a top notch course and is definitely a hidden gem.

This course is a blast to play, every hole ( even 17 ) grows on you - the more you play, the more you want to come back .... It's the best course in the world , I'd rather play this than some 7000 yard monster which will serve to do nothing but frustrate ... You won't regret playing here - ever!
