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.

Few regions can compare with Cape Cod's wealth of golf courses, which number more than 40. Best of all, most of them are open to the public. One of these, however, Sandwich Hollows Golf Club, has been more like a secret haven just for locals and in-the-know vacationers. Leigh MacKay has more on this no-longer-hidden gem.

With six par 3s and two short par 4s, Bay Pointe Club in Onset, Mass. seems to be ripe for the taking, but it rarely happens. Low scores tend to be derailed by long par 3s, rolling topography, 38 bunkers and two ponds. The operative word about playing it is fun. Thanks to the par 3s, golfers get a couple extra chances at a hole in one. It's one of the best values of golf on or near Cape Cod.

In a town more known for its famous "rock" than its green grass fairways, golf is slowing taking over the tourist scene in this New England tourist town. Striking daily-fee courses aren't the norm in the country club world of the East Coast havens like New York and Boston, but that is changing as golf booms continue to build bigger and better public places to play, like the Pinehills Golf Club.

Squirrel Run Golf & Country Club in Plymouth, Mass. may be short at just 2,859 yards -- which is what you get when you have 15 par 3s out of 18 holes. But it's long enough and interesting enough to get most golfers excited. The course is enjoyable for everyone, especially high handicappers and beginners, Mike Bailey writes.
