Rating 55.4

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.

Dad's favorite course

My Dad loves everything about this course and the friendliest staff south of Boston.
Basically par 3 course with 4 par 4s, and conditions are impeccable.
If you are looking to improve your short game or a course that is comfortable for all ages including my 79 year old Dad visit Dave and his friendly staff at Squirrel Run!

Thank you,
Mike Burns

FUN

If you like to swing easy and enjoy yourself, this is heaven on earth. On the other hand, if you're take the game too seriously, consider walking Pinehills. This course is a blast no matter how you play. I wish there were identical courses in every city town and countryside.
