Great lay out. Love the elevation changes. Service is great and staff is friendly. I played alone and met some great guys. Very scenic and you have to respect the shots required here. Not long, but challenging and fun. The design made the most out of the land here. I love it.

Great Value, Greens Looking Good

Really good public course in Boston. If you go out in morning, you don’t wait. Classic Donald Ross layout using the hills especially on the greens. For the value, it’s a great spot.

Nice time, conditions but overpriced

The rain has helped - greens and fairways as good as I’ve seen there. Tee boxes just ok. The negative is the pricing - used to pay $30 for a hot deal that included a cart - now the only hot deal is 7am and it’d be $67 on a Friday if you needed a cart. Its a fun historic layout but at least $20 overpriced

Decent layout but poor conditions.

The layout of this shorter course is good. The par 5s are a legitimate distance and the numerous sub-300 yard par 4s are still a challenge.

But the conditions here are not good. The tee boxes are not in good shape. One is actually turf and not grass. And the greens are slow and a little beat up. I know it’s a muni course but this course is a substantial step down in quality from the other Boston muni I’ve played (Franklin Park). I don’t think this course is good value at $65 for fees and cart.
