Review: Hotchkiss School Golf Course

Just as many Hotchkiss grads go on to do bigger and better things at Yale, so too did Raynor and Banks. Architecture enthusiasts, however, should not overlook this mini-Yale with numerous template holes, a strong Raynor influence, and an important role in golf architecture history. I highly recommend Hotchkiss School Golf Course to anyone in the area. … More Review: Hotchkiss School Golf Course

Review: George Wright Golf Course

It’s rare you get to play an unadulterated Ross, let alone a municipal one that costs less than $50. George Wright is a fantastic design and my choice for best public course in the immediate Boston area. Featuring a very difficult terrain and numerous blind shots, this is a course all Ross enthusiasts should see and could be one of the best courses in Massachusetts with some TLC. … More Review: George Wright Golf Course

Review: Philadelphia Cricket Club – Militia Hill Course

While not as memorable or strategic as its sister Wissahickon Course, the Militia Hill Course is a welcome addition to the storied Philadelphia Cricket Club. This lengthy modern course is a bomber’s paradise with beautiful bunkering and conditions as good as you’ll find anywhere. This “B” course is better than many club’s primary courses. … More Review: Philadelphia Cricket Club – Militia Hill Course

Conjuring up comparisons to Pine Valley, Boston Golf Club is a modern classic, with bold contours, endless strategy, incredible variety, and a serious amount of charm. This golfing-first member-owned Club is a course you’ll never tire playing and is a true inspiration to all other modern courses who want a traditional feel.
