Don't underestimate the charms of Blue Rock Golf Resort in South Yarmouth, Mass. on Cape Cod

SOUTH YARMOUTH, Mass. -- It's not on the beach. There's no regulation golf course on property. There's no spa for Mom or hot tub for the kids. But the Blue Rock Golf Resort still tends to charm guests into coming back year after year.

Staying at Blue Rock is one of the best values on Cape Cod. You're away from the hustle-and-bustle of the beach towns, but close enough to enjoy them, if you so wish. The accommodations are comfortable and convenient. The restaurant at Blue Rock is quite good.

The 2,868-yard Blue Rock Golf Course serves as the perfect alternative to a full championship layout with holes ranging from 103 yards to 255 yards. It takes less time to play and costs less, leaving more time spent on those pristine beaches.

Blue Rock Golf Resort guests have access to several nearby beachfront resorts also run by Red Jacket Resorts. All Red Jacket Resorts feature an outdoor pool as well. For those players addicted to golf, lessons from Blue Rock Golf Professional Patrick Fannon could be the first step in landing an ace on his well manicured short course.
