GOLF DESTINATIONS

BEST COURSES TO PLAY ON

THE CAPE AND ISLANDS

Don’t get bogged down by the many fine golf choices in the Cape. Here are a few of the best. Highland Links Established in 1892 in the town of Truro, fairways are not irrigated, greens are small and landscaping features heather and gorse on this charming throwback course. The focal point from most of the nine holes is the lighthouse museum where visitors from the encased glass above gaze at the ocean as well as the golfers approaching the par 3 7th green. Grab your knickers, spoons and brassies or come as you are to Highland Links where ocean views are astounding. 10 Highland Light Rd.,Truro, Ma. 02666 (508)-487-9201 www.highlandlinkscapecod.com

Hyannis Golf Course Even in the early foggy mist this is clearly a beautiful course with higher elevations than most of the Cape Cod courses. Walkers get a great workout and an even better value with such pristine course conditions. It is natural scenery sans homes. The Sound of Music might ring in your ears as you golf around to the famous horseshoe number 8. 1840 Iyannough Rd #2, Hyannis, MA 02601 (508)-362-2606 www.barnstablegolf.com

Olde Barnstable Fairgrounds Picture rolling hills and long narrow fairways with towering pines and maple forests that become vibrant with fall colors. Old Barnstable Fairgrounds, designed by Geoffrey Cornish and Mark Mungeam is an enjoyable walkable course highlighted by the spacious clubhouse with pro shop and restaurant atop a high hill overlooking the scenic countryside. It is annually voted as one of the best municipal courses on the Cape. 1460 MA-149, Marstons Mills, MA 02648 (508)-420-1141 www.barnstablegolf.com

Ocean Edge Golf Club This Jack Nicklaus course has matured into a beauty. Great service begins with John Sheffler welcoming members and guests of the resort to the Troon Prive venue. Immaculate conditions and floral gardens permeate the course through hills and along Blueberry Pond. Separate public and member bars share the scenic patio for nineteenth hole delights. 2907 Main St, Brewster, MA 02631 (508)-896-9000 www.oceanedge.com
