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.

When traversing Cole's River Family Fun Center's 18-hole mini golf course, golfers putt past water flowing down a mini rock-strewn mountainside, contoured greens, and rocky outcroppings surrounding the course. Adjacent to the course, guests of all ages can hone their swinging skills at the multi-bay batting cages, or enhance a different set of swing mechanics under covered bays at the on-site driving range. Golfers can unwind with solo practice sessions or enlist the help of a golf instructor during one-on-one lessons and group clinics. The multi-faceted facility also serves up Del's Lemonade, snacks, and lucky colors of mini golf balls.

In golf, the tee shot is the one constant, the one point on each hole in which the golfer is in total control. With Windmill Hill Golf Course’s nine-hole, par three layout, the tee shot takes on added significance, so players must take full advantage of their ability to position the ball freely, tee it up, or decorate it with glitter-glue before taking aim at the flagstick. The course’s holes range from 116 to 218 yards in length, so golfers need to unsheathe a number of different clubs throughout the round. In addition to its scaled-down course, Windmill Hill offers a grill room with a bar, TVs, and an outdoor deck that overlooks the links.

The weather in Boston doesn’t always provide for ideal golfing conditions. In 2003, a record storm buried the city under nearly 28 inches of snow. Other years have simply been cold. In either case, On The Tee Indoor Golf Club lets players work on their swings year-round with an advanced golf simulator that re-creates some of the world's finest courses. Standing in front of a high-definition 14'x9' screen, golfers shoot actual balls as 3-D Doppler tracking radar—not unlike the radar used to track stray caddies—accurately follows the shots and relays the results within the simulated course. Computers also help visitors take their games to the next level during lessons with professional golfer Russell Quigg, who uses video-analysis software to diagnose and fix problems in players’ swings.
