Alot of great courses. Some of my favorites are,

How's Shinning Rock? It's quite a hike from my place (north shore) but I'm thinking of making a pilgrimage.

Definitely a fun track and worth a turn. Let me know when you want to make the trip... it's just down the road from me.

Cheers,

How's Shinning Rock?

 

That place is right in my town, but I have never been there. I will have to make it a point to play there this spring. I don't like mandatory carts though. I am pretty sure that you have to use a cart for all tee times except twilight golf hours.

I'm partial to:

Black Rock and The Country Club. Charles River is also a favorite. There are so many great tracks here in New England that it would be hard to choose. Never played Shining Rock, Mike do you like it?

 

My home course is Highfields out in Grafton but I definitely like to get a few rounds each year in at Shining Rock. Great people at Shining Rock and I always enjoy the different layout.

I bounce around a bit in the general area and hit most of the usual suspects a few times a year... Red Tail, Butter Brook, Cyprian Keyes, New England Country Club and Blackstone are a few of the courses on the rota for me when the snow melts.

I had no idea that you were located so close to my town. We should get together for a round of 19 holes one of these days.

Sounds like a plan.

Now only if we can get the snow to melt.

I've heard that Shining Rock is a unique course. I just looked at its site and they have a lot of long par 3s and short par 4s. That coupled with the gorges looks challenging.

I hear great things about Butter Brook too. Counting down the days... 

Here's hoping for an early spring!

Definitely Wannamoisett CC. It's tough, well built, and hosts the Northeast Amateur every year and is sure to offer a challenging experience every time you play.

Butter Brook is a GREAT course with wonderful staff....We play it weekly. As most folks know that have played it, the front and back nines are very different....The back 9 has a definite links feel with a lot of risk/reward holes especially the closer you get to the end. A good 19th hole too!

As us New Englanders know and with the winter as it is here, we play a lot of indoor golf on the simulators at Pappas Golf & Baseball. Not the same as "real" golf, but it keeps you swinging year round and ready to go out when the weather finally breaks for good!

Uuuuuuuugggggg! Snow again!  I know it's supposed to warm up, but I always try to log a round by St. Paddy's day. Not looking good this year...

think spring

I was able to sneak in a quick range session today in short sleeves!!  Seems like winter has finally receded.  

Since this has been a moderately popular thread, I figured I would throw it out there- I am a member of Thomson country club in North Reading, and was wondering if some of my fellow Team Titleist mates would be down to do a little gathering. Depending on how many people we get, I can talk to our pro and see if we can get some preferred times on a weekend. Maybe we can even play a little tournament.Perhaps Titleist will even be cool enough to toss us some pin prizes. It's a really good track, and there's a decent bar across the street for anyone who's into playing 19 holes. If anyone is interested just let me know.
