Course Review and Comments
Low handicaps beware, this Donald Ross masterpiece cannot be judged from the 6000 yd scorecard. Greens from hell! my parner exclained, and the member in our 4some just laughed. Lots of local knowledge needed. Similar to its cousin, Pinehurst No 2, fast grees protected by bunkers. Good short game a must. Layout is purported to be unchanged since Ross left in 1910... the old Scott's 1st design in the US shows his signiture mid fairway bunkers and "ladies assist "ramp" in front of most greens. Its a short track, but you use everything in your bag. Pins only visible on 6 holes! The 1st, 9th, 16th, 17th and 18th have breathtaking views of Boston.
