If you are in the Boston area this summer and looking to experience some great golf, definitely consider booking a round or two at Pinehills Golf Club in Plymouth, Ma.
With two 18-hole championship courses, designed by none other than Rees Jones and Nicklaus Design, spread across 300 beautiful acres the club provides the perfect spot for a few days of golfing bliss and its location just an hour from Boston makes it easily accessible.
DESIGNED BY THE BEST
The par-72, 7,175-yard Jones Course presents players with a challenging but enjoyable playing experience. Perfectly cared for and featuring tree-lined and undulating fairways and greens, the course offers four separate tee boxes which allow the course to play anywhere from 5,388 to 7,175 yards.
The par-72, 7,243-yard Nicklaus Course at Pinehills Golf Club offers a different but equally enjoyable experience. Bordered by trees and featuring tricky green complexes, rolling fairways, and water impacting a few holes, the course provides a test to beginner and seasoned players alike. Like the Jones, four sets of tees allow the course to play from 5,185 to 7,243 yards.
A couple other nearby courses to check out are Waverly Oaks Golf Club and Crosswinds Golf Club.
OK, so we’ve got the places to play but what about a place to stay? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
