Cape Cod, Massachusetts
About Cape CodWhether you’re at Cape Cod with the family, or on vacation with your significant other, there’s plenty to do. A great place for the kids is taking them to Skull Island Sports World. Spread out across 10 acres of land is a massive mini-golf course, driving range, batting cages, go-karts, and so much more.
Martha’s Vineyard is a staple of Cape Cod, and can be accessed by either car or ferry. There’s six small towns that you can visit, and a plethora of beaches, shops, and restaurants to check out. If you love old-school ice-cream parlors or you enjoy watching saltwater taffy get pulled and made fresh daily, Oak Bluffs is a town you’ll want to explore.
Brookside Club is located within an hour of Boston and Providence, Rhode Island. League options are available and take place twice a week. Special tournaments are usually held monthly and are a great way to meet the locals.
While there’s plenty of time to shop and relax, there’s some great golf courses to check out while you’re there as well. Squirrel Hill is an 18-hole par-3 course with a variety of length in every hole. Granted you shouldn’t have to pull out any fairway woods or hybrids, you’ll find yourself hungry for more at the end of your round.
