Roll Call: Massachusetts

Finally played Essex on Tuesday. Shot average for myself (I’m a 15 lol) but irons struggled. Smoked the absolute drive of my life down the hill on 18. Put it to 6 inches on 7, made the bird then hit another absolute bomb of a drive on 8 up the hill then down the hill. God what a joy to play that course, especially after working there all summer.

Playing Kernwood on Tuesday. Played it once just after I started playing golf. Any recommendations seeing as how I’m a better player now?

I am hoping someone on here can help me out. I am looking for a recommendation of a teacher to take some golf lessons in the north shore area. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone ever play Nahant GC? Looks like a goat track but those can be the most fun

I’ve played there a few times. It is kind of a swamp, literally, but it is fun cheap golf. You don’t need anything more than a long iron and the greens are littered with goose shit and tiny.

I will probably go back at some point his fall as it is really easy to get a tee time on golfnow.

Good to know. Might try and get down there this week.

Also, whats the word on Wollaston GC? Looks cool but I have literally never heard of it until today.

One of Tiger’s Junior Am titles was at Wollaston.

I think the drought has created some interesting conditions for the fall. I think it has made it harder on some courses with lots of trees and easier on others because of the lack of rough.

Where do you play in Central MA?

Just hopping in late here - wolly is tiny and tree lined and littered with former NHL guys as members (Ryan Whitney and his crew most prominent). The greens are outrageously fast and sloped. Their member guest is nuts, they do a Calcutta that got up to like 50k last year. My friend has played in it the last few years which is how I know this, I haven’t played it before

Welcome! If you (or @TK2575 or anyone else) is looking for a last minute tee time, I’m running a little Boston Golf + Social event at Blissful meadows in uxbridge on saturday. We have 2 spots left, you’ll be in the field among such luminaries as @FringeLife, @GreenlodgeSocialClub, @moreholden, and others. $100 gets you golf, cart, swag, and prizes for winners. Dm me to hop in!

Damn. Sounds cool as hell

Mostly been playing at Pine Ridge due to their membership deal they had earlier in the year, $150 for three years of unlimited golf. Not the best course but that was an insane deal.

Played Quail Hollow a couple of times over the past few weeks too. Love this time of year for golf, don’t mind the chill at all.
