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: Rock Spring Golf Club at West Orange

While I think Rock Spring is more Banks than Raynor, the bottom line is that the general public won’t get a much better opportunity to experience templates and MacRaynor architecture than this. At under $50, I implore all those interested in architecture to check out Rock Spring as soon as possible, especially considering the property value may cause this course to be lost forever soon… … More Review: Rock Spring Golf Club at West Orange

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

Review: Galloway National Golf Club

Beautiful, difficult, and in immaculate condition, the underrated Galloway National is an example of Tom Fazio at his absolute best. Fazio marries sandy wastebunkers, tall pines, and the Atlantic City skyline to create numerous fantastic holes and the look and feel of places like Pine Valley and Pinehurst. This is the best course in the loaded Atlantic City area and one of the best in the golf-rich state of New Jersey. … More Review: Galloway National Golf Club

Review: Myopia Hunt Club

Unique and bold, the venerable Myopia Hunt Club is as timeless as they come and boasts one of the finest golf courses not just in New England, but in all of America. The sheer variety, quirk, and difficulty make each hole memorable and fun and the old-school atmosphere of the Club simply cannot be topped. Myopia is intensely private with a small membership, but drop everything and run if you receive an invitation to this bastion of past. … More Review: Myopia Hunt Club

Review: Skyway Golf Course at Lincoln Park West

The urban Skyway Golf Course offers excellent conditioning, strong value, and beautiful views in a very unique setting just outside New York City. While the architects were somewhat hindered by a lack of space, this is still a memorable 9-hole course that serves as a nice alternative to Ferry Point at a fraction of the price. … More Review: Skyway Golf Course at Lincoln Park West

Review: Whitinsville Golf Club

Whitinsville proves the point that 9 great holes is superior to trying to squeeze 18 average holes on a small property. Featuring excellent greens, strategic doglegs, and strong bunkering, Whitinsville is the best 9-hole course I’ve played and is certainly one of the best 9-holers in the world. I highly recommend this course to all who enjoy classic architecture and Donald Ross. … More Review: Whitinsville Golf Club
