Think those posh Boston-area golf country clubs are only reserved for New England nobility? Think again. Many new private golf courses have sprung up around the Hub in recent years and the clubs they\'re attached to are looking for new members. And they don\'t require that your ancestors have a direct connection with the Mayflower. Looking to join a country club? WorldGolf.com gives you the skinny on accessible private golf in Boston.
Boston Brahmins have any number of excellent private golf clubs at their disposal. The North Shore features the delightful Myopia Hunt Club, which has hosted the U.S. Open four times. The posh Kittansett Club is well south of the city, by Buzzards Bay near Cape Cod, dazzling members and their guests with sweeping water views. In between are stalwarts like Charles River, Brae Burn and Winchester. And of course, the Country Club in Brookline, site of Francis Ouimet\'s shocking U.S. Open win in 1913, and the equally shocking American comeback in the 1999 Ryder Cup Matches..
But there\'s good news for those not born directly into Boston\'s aristocracy: There are several excellent Boston country clubs that are aggressively seeking new members. Here are a few to consider.
Renaissance Golf Club in Haverhill This 2005 Brian Silva signature course is well-named, as the design inspiration comes from the great Scottish links of the 19th century and landmark American layouts of the 1920s. Some of the green complexes contained here are direct adaptations of British design classics such as the Redan and Punchbowl. Alternate routes of play are possible on most holes, with generously wide fairways punctuated by random bunkering common throughout the course. Raised putting surfaces necessitate a variety of approach shot techniques, and oftentimes the best shots will be played along the ground.
