In 1967, William J. Cuddigan began tilling and transforming his farmland using natural grasses and wooded barriers, slowly building what has since grown into a family fun center replete with a miniature golf course, batting cages, and a 52-stall driving range. The Cuddigan family still tends to the landscape, honoring William's original design while updating the facility with modern amenities. Covered and heated hitting stalls line the driving range, enabling players to practice in a natural setting throughout the year. The 18-hole miniature golf course has also seen many renovations but, like a recurring dream, many of its original features?windmill, lighthouse, and sinister clown nose hole?have been faithfully preserved.

The tree-lined fairways that constitute Woodstock Golf Course were once sheep pastures, but you'd have to go back more than a century to find any grazing ewes there. Built in 1896, the course is one of the state's oldest nine-hole facilities. Since its inception, the owners have worked to keep the course inclusive and accessible, as reflected in its relative simplicity and inclusion of only one moderate hill. But like procuring blueprints of your bank, navigating the 2,397-yard course still requires care: golfers must maneuver through narrow fairways and small greens precisely if they want to make par.

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.

Sandy Burr Country Club is a golf course in good company. It's among the nation's ever-dwindling stock of courses designed by Donald Ross, master architect of such notable courses as Pinehurst No. 2 and Inverness Club. The legendary designer unveiled the 18-holer in 1922, at the outset of the decade that would soon become known as the "Golden Era" of golf course design?due to the proliferation of course construction, not because stockbrokers refused to play with anything but golden clubs. Adding to the historical pedigree, professionals Walter Hagen and Gene Sarazen played the course in the 20s and 30s, even participating in the 1935 Massachusetts Open. Golfers today walk in their large footprints as they take on the 6,550-yard course and its three water hazards, before retiring to the English Tudor-style clubhouse?a charming piece of history in its own right.
