Played it last season with Wedgie & StrokerAce, we had a great time. It's almost always in excellent condition, easy to forget it's a muni. 

Any round with those two is sure to be a good time. Even if it’s mini golf!

that sounds like a course I’m going to have to check out.

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. 

How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  I've been playing about 15 years. My index is 20, and hasn't budged.  What do you love about golf?  I love be

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.

Hands down Owls Nest, not that there are many options up here, and if I tried that I would go broke very quickly.

Valley Country Club baby! Although I loved playing Highfields when I was up in Mass I’ll stay local to where I am now. I will say Highfields would be a great central location if everyone wants to get together.

I Love Owl’s Nest! The 18th is one of the best finishing views around. And the Gin and Tonics afterward are too notch too!

Yeah some great views and always good conditions. Usually play a couple times a year and end up using that range a bunch.

Great range. Always good condition. Only 2 that compete with that aspect for me is pine hills in Plymouth and crumpin fox. They give you free range balls 😍

Oh so many to choose from...

Blissful Meadows, Blackstone (hopefully it comes back!) National, Stow Acres, Segregansett, Acushnet RV....

but, I'm going to have to go with Kettle Brook. IMG_20191024_121940.jpg.7b9d5266cb92a6279991b43cfb9bf6f5.jpg

if I could afford it Franklin Country Club would be A1....

Franklin CC is one of my Top 5 in New England. I miss the NE courses a lot. It’s great playing 12 months a year in FL but the course conditions and scenery in NE hard to beat.

I’ll add Red Tail and Shaker Hills. They’re up there for me too, but more expensive than others. 
 

this is a great list. Thanks for those who’ve added. My favorites folder for courses had a few more now!

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.

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.

Hi all - I'm excited to jump into the MGS community. I've never been much for online forums or chats, but if there's going to be one worth engaging in, it seems like a world full of people who have an opinion on how to fix my golf swing is the right place to start.

Per the suggestions on the original post:

  • I've been playing golf since age 4, so almost 30 years
  • At one point I was just below a 2, but that was short lived and now hover pretty consistently around 8
    • I directly correlate my increased handicap to moving to NE from Virginia...so much less opportunity to practice & play here
  • I've seen MGS articles online and through instagram this past year and really started to like the way their written and quality of advice, so I'm jumping in!
  • I now live just north of Boston, MA - and am still searching for a good "home course", but so far go to is to drive out to Red Tail GC in Devens, MA
  • My uncle was a PGA club pro and that drove me headfirst into golf. The meditative quality of pursuing unattainable perfection is what keeps me hooked. As many of you know, that singular focus required of golf is so calming
  • I work in healthcare administration and am thrilled to be able to support and create an environment where our caregivers can work efficiently and patients are put at the center

I'm looking forward to engaging more on here and hope to connect and get out on the course with some of you in the future!

Welcome aboard! There are ALOT of good courses around the 495 strip. How far are you looking to cruise for a home course and how far is red tail for you? Several folks on here can recommend good courses within proximity. 

Red tail is a great course. Have played it 3 times and it never disappoints!


look forward to seeing you around!

Thanks! I'm in Woburn, MA currently. Most days I'd say anything short of an hour drive is reasonable for a quality 18. Most of the public courses nearby seem to only be 9 holes, which is fine for the weekday jaunt. 

I'm probably 40 minutes from Red Tail, but mostly highway so it's easy going. I've heard good things about the NH options just over the border as well, just haven't gotten the chance to check them out yet. 

Hoping to get my first holes of the season in at Billerica Country Club this coming weekend if I can get on the sheet. Heard it was an easy walk and not too difficult.

Shaker hills is 35ish minutes for you the. That’s a fantastic course!

wachusett country club is about 55 for you which is also really good. But shaker hills is A1 IMO

Hi from Connecticut. 
 

I am a 17.1 because I change my swing constantly. It’s a flaw. I guess I am the Bryson type, which is why I love MGS. I like to properly fit the numbers, I like to know which equipment is best for me despite all the hype or marketing

Golf is about getting out there with friends and having time away from the stresses of life. And beer. 
 

I am also competitive against my friends and with myself I enjoy both aspects. 
 

I am a rarity in that I care more about the quality of a swing and good contact and improving more than result.  I’d rather miss a green pin high with a good strike than get lucky bounce
