Resting in the gorgeous granite foothills of Mt. Monadnock, Shattuck Golf Club boasts a course bordered by oak and pine trees, with exquisite views after every 250-yard drive. Shattuck offers intriguing challenges with each hole, from hole 5’s 30-foot-high green—carved into the side of a rock ledge—to the beaver swamp standing between your ball and hole 12. Serenely drive a white orb past the colonial farmhouse on hole 16, then putt for birdie on hole 18’s long-winding green. You’ll also get a cart, so you can motor around from shot to shot and enjoy the diverse wildlife, such as minks, foxes, moose, otters, marmocoons, and great blue herons. Shattuck Golf Club welcomes golfers of any skill level to experience the course, so invite novices, youngsters, stooges, tenors, or former PGA champions, and hit the scenic links.
Sterling Golf Management
With eight distinct courses etched into the New England countryside, Sterling Golf Management promotes pin-hunting recreation for Boston-area golfers of all abilities. The longest and most difficult of the eight, The Shattuck Golf Club's 18-hole course kicks off with a 409-yard par 4 where players hack their way toward a green that is visually wreathed by the rising red rocks of Mount Monadnock, setting the tone for a scenic, 6,764-yard round. Groves of trees ensconce the fairways and barter over carbon dioxide at Norwood Country Club's recently renovated course, a relatively flat layout characterized by smallish greens and flanked by a lighted driving range. The newest members to the Sterling Golf Management team is the Winchendon Golf Club, which originally opened in 1926, was designed by Donald Ross and features 18 holes, and the Unicorn Golf Course, originally designed by Stiles and Van Cleek as a private course in 1928, features a nine-hole course. Lying between tall oaks for a picturesque par-54 round is the Rockland 18 par-3 holes course. Designed in 1921 in the Donald Ross tradition is the Maynard Golf Course, a picturesque par 70, 9-hole course with a full-service clubhouse. The same sylvan makeup returns at Newton Commonwealth's course, where lush tree lines cast shadows over a creek as it snakes across the fairways of seven holes. Rounding out the grassy octuplet, Chelmsford's nine-hole course takes golfers careening across 2,467 yards of narrow fairways, placing straight drives or skilled golf ball pilots at a premium.
