Pinehills Golf Club, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

For my first experience of golfing in New England, and on the East Course, I chose to play Pinehills Golf Club. Located less then 50 miles south of Boston and not far from Cape Cod, near the historic town of Plymouth (known as "America's Hometown",  Plymouth was also the site of the colony founded in 1620 by the Pilgrims, passengers of the famous ship the Mayflower), Pinehills features two marvelous 18 holes championship courses designed by Rees Jones and Nicklaus Design in an area of rolling hills, pine forest, glacially carved kettles and kames.
Pinehills Golf Club opened in 2001 and since then received many accolades from Golf Digest (4.5 stars course) Golf Magazine (Top 10 you can play in Massachusetts) Golf Week (No. 1 rated public golf course in Massachusetts). 
I first played the Nicklaus course, a great course, fairways bordered by pine trees, small and really challenging greens with many risk rewards holes as on the Nicklaus design style.
Next day I played Jones course.
The Jones is completely different, a true challenging course, with many elevation changes, ravines to carry, some blind shot and strategically placed bunkers. Tough course that I found even tougher since I played from hole 4th to hole 18th under a steady heavy rain!!

  1. The positive parts of gas golf trucks is that they have more power than their electric partners and in this way, improve if the green you regularly golf has a scene with loads of slopes.
