Review: Highlands Links

Perhaps the most isolated of the world’s great courses, Highlands Links doesn’t get the recognition it deserves but left me awestruck. With one of the most memorable and naturally beautiful settings in golf, Stanley Thompson created a spellbinding masterpiece here that all who value golf architecture should visit. A trip to Cabot without including Highlands is truly unforgivable. … More Review: Highlands Links

Review: Cape Arundel Golf Club

Short but very sweet, Walter Travis’ Cape Arundel offers a truly wonderful setting in picturesque Southern Maine. Boasting some of the finest greens complexes anywhere and one of the best walks, this course is the perfect example of why length isn’t necessary for greatness. I highly recommend Cape Arundel to anyone visiting Portland or even for those looking for a new course in the Boston area. … More Review: Cape Arundel Golf Club

Review: Bethpage State Park Golf Course – Blue Course

Although not nearly as dramatic or architecturally pure as Bethpage Black or Red, the Blue Course is another solid public offering at the legendary Bethpage State Park. The challenge, conditioning, and tremendous value make it a strong choice for those of all golfing abilities to enjoy on a regular basis.  … More Review: Bethpage State Park Golf Course – Blue Course

Review: Wanumetonomy Golf and Country Club

Wanumetonomy sees a somewhat restrained Seth Raynor with only a couple of templates, but a lovely seaside location and many strong holes make it a must play for fans of MacRaynor. With additional tree-removal and a commitment to Raynor’s original bunkering hopefully coming in the next few years, Wanumetonomy could become one of the elite private courses in Rhode Island. … More Review: Wanumetonomy Golf and Country Club
