    It really is, one of my favorite layouts. It can play long. Just enough elevation changes and they do it well hole to hole. Just really unfortunate, I have heard grumblings about the super incompetence but dont know 100% if thats it or its a funding thing. Regardless really hoping it turns around....

    Where did you end up booking?

    Ended up playing Maplegate.  Course was in decent shape.  Greens were okay, not great.

    Just played it yesterday. Don't bother was in awful condition and is a shame because the track is awesome. Greens had weird growths and was very patchy/bumpy. Fairways were soaked in random spots what seemed like irrigation issues that have not been fixed (was all over the place too not just a few holes) tee boxes and traps were poorly maintained some of the worst I have seen in a long time. If you are looking for something in that area try blissful meadows, way better at this point in time. I could rattle a few others off in the area if you are interested LMK.

    Thanks for the feedback, Lacassem.  That's too bad.  One of my favorite courses.

    Alright NE-crew. Since it feels like Spring today... or at least not as wintery... I’ve got a question for you all.

    If you could only play one of your courses for the whole season, which would you choose?

    It’s gotta be something you would normally play. The idea behind this one is get a list going of our favorites so anyone in the area can scroll through and see. Try not to repeat so we get a good list.

    For me it’s Highfields Golf and Country Club in Grafton, MA (sorry [mention]Lacassem [/mention] choose something different). It’s a great track with a variety of holes and a great value.

    George Wright, a city of Boston course that was designed by Donald Ross.  A really fun, old-school layout with many blind tee shots.  I remember it having maintenance issues in the 90s and early 2000s, but I played it a few years ago and it was in good shape.

    Gonna have to go with Acushnet River Valley. Gives you the best of both worlds - typical gorgeous tree-lined fairways on the front nine, then links style on the back nine. 

    Played it for first time in November of last year and enjoyed it very much.  Course was in great shape, especially the greens.  Will definitely go back.

    Welcome!

    Right down the road from me and a few others on site. Maplegate is a great spot (used to be one of the best in the area) and is slowly getting back with new greenskeeping. If you have not played wentworth in wrentham yet, that is well worth it (very tight course)

    Plenty of folks on here to get rounds in with, enjoy the site!

    Thanks, Lacassem.  I'll have to check out Wentworth.

    1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  I started playing in 1996 at the dawn of the Tiger era.  Tiger was a big reason I started playing golf.  I haven't kept a USGA handicap in a long time.  My unofficial handicap is 10.2.  

    2. What do you love about golf?  I have moved a lot and usually go out to the course as a single.  I love that golf gives me the opportunity to meet new people all the time.

    3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  I was listening to a podcast that mentioned MyGolfSpy product reviews and decided to check it out.  I don't know any other spies, but would love to meet some spies out on the course.

    4. Where are you from? What is your home course?  I recently moved back to the Greater Boston area and am in Wrentham for the time being.  Have played Maplegate a bunch since I've been back.

    5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  The worst is the short season.  The best are the beautiful natural settings of the courses in MA.

    6. What do you do for a living? I'm a patent lawyer.

    7. How’d you pick your user name? I was born in Argentina and "el pibe de oro" was a nickname for the great Argentine soccer player, Maradona, who died last year.
