How far south of Boston to find an open course?


Recommended Posts

Campbells Scotish Highlands in Salem NH is opening on Friday. Have to imagine that will be a little soggy :)

Meanwhile my club doesn't even have a date. I'm guessing last week in April at best. Fortunately we are doing a family trip to Myrtle Beach over school vacation :)

Will be interested in hearing if their greens have recovered, they were awful last year.

Playing Newport National Saturday. :)

I would say they were average at best last year. There are usually a ton of un repaired ball marks that really take a toll on those greens. Always seems to be some fungus on parts of the greens. I think they even closed the putting green at the range at one point, I remember that green being in really bad shape.

Didn't get to play it last year... what about the greens was poor?

Everything? They were just terrible, patchy, rough, nearly unplayable IMO. I know that northern MA and NH had a rough winter last year, many of the courses up that way were in rough shape. It was disappointing because usually they are in pretty good shape, so I'm hopeful they've recovered.

I played The Meadow in Peabody today and besides the wind being brutal(almost always windy there) the course was in surprisingly good shape. Greens were good and starting to green up......there were a few soggy spot and a couple patches of snow around but it was a lot better than I thought it was gonna be. Only the front 9 was open but for $20 with a cart it's hard to beat.

Middleton Par 3 is open. Recently punched, but it was nice to get out nonetheless and shake off some rust. Able to run the front in a little over an hour. Back was slammed, left after the 14th.

Hit the range for some drives after at Richardson's and more importantly a tremendous Reese's Peanut Butter Cup frappe, it was the best part of the day.

Was at the Campbells Range Sat and Sun. As usual the range access road and car park turned into a mud-fest! They had the short-game area pitching green open on Saturday but closed it Sunday because the Superintendent said it was not ready. Not sure what that says for the 18 open greens on the main course!! From what I could saw of the course it all looked very soggy and dormant grass as far as the eye could see. Hopefully with this weeks nice warm dry weather the course recovers some.

Played 9 at Wentworth Hills in Plainville today. The course was in decent condition; however, the greens were ridiculously slow.

Played Pinehills Jones course today. The course was in pretty good condition overall. The greens were a little on the slow side. One of the bunkers had snow in it and in general the bunkers were difficult.

      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
