Hawthorne Country Club's 9-hole course unfolds across a 54-acre parcel of countryside that incorporates thick clusters of woods, stone-lined ponds, and picturesque views of the valley. The nine fairways coil around the club's crown jewel: the clubhouse with ample deck seating and interior accommodations. Here visitors can soak in sights of the Paskamansett Valley through the dining room's floor-to-ceiling windows while also making sure golf carts don't try to sneak out after curfew.

The course at Touisset Country Club covers a verdant patch of repurposed farmland that still bears many of its original, naturally occurring hazards. In 1959, the then-amateur designers, Raymond Brigham and Richard Weller, built the course by hand. In doing so, they chose to leave the existing boulders in place rather than using them as paperweights for to-scale U.S. maps. And today, more than half a century later, the course balances such rugged features with well-maintained, penncross grass greens.

Course at a Glance:

  • Nine-hole, par 35 course
  • Total length of 3,024 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 69.1 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 111 from the back tees
  • Two sets of tees per hole

Perched along the historic Palmer River, where steamships used to chug along to the ocean’s embrace, the tree-spotted links of Wampanoag Golf Course invite players to swing their way through nine holes designed by golf course architect Aljenon Barney in 1932. Golfers swing their way through the 110 acres of bucolic greenery, where subtle slopes facilitate walking or somersaulting from hole to hole, and gas-powered carts ferry club-swingers who loop the course twice over to play a full 18. Players are challenged with forced carries over water hazards on holes 7, 8, and 9 and must use deft club selections throughout to avoid excessive sunbathing in the course’s populous sand traps. After breaking a sweat, golfers can lounge in the shade of a patio, munching on sandwiches and sipping complimentary coffee before summoning camel transports for a renewed attack on hole six's sandy moat to the green.

Swathed in the Cape Cod–style clubhouse of LeBaron Hills Country Club, Lilly’s captivates palates with a seasonal menu of seafood, steak, and pasta. Conjure the flavors of summer with a greens-and-pineapple salad ($7 for a half portion, $9 for a full portion), a mix of citrus chunks and mango dressing for tropical flavors and wasabi peas for seasonal heat. Chefs create foodscapes on a linguini canvas by painting hills of sautéed chicken and lobster and a forest of mushrooms, broccoli, and roasted tomatoes with a gorgonzola cream sauce ($13 for a half portion, $24 for a full portion). Prosciutto-wrapped pork tenderloin and asparagus ($19) snorkel through a sea of chipotle cream sauce, excavating submerged scallions and pirate doubloons from mounds of mashed potatoes. A three-layer feast, the Georgia Banks grilled swordfish ($30) rests on a pile of sliced potatoes while the sweet juices of a pineapple, mango, and strawberry salsa run down its sides.
