Easy to see why Boston GC is widely considered to be a US top 100 course. The layout is magnificent from the par 5 start to the par 3 finishing hole (cleverly set below an outdoor patio area for great viewing). This is an early Gil Hanse design and like the early efforts of most great architects, you can see the elements of genius with the occasional misstep. The par 3 fifth with a wide but shallow green set on top of a hillside of waste areas was my favorite hole. The fairways are usually generous, but still punish poor shots. Some of the fairway bunkering is quite unique. But the greens are the truly interesting/challenging/frustrating feature of the course. If you can espace this course with less than 3 three putts, you are truly a great putter. Some of them border on being over the top (the 12th in particular) but they certainly are not your average set of greens. This is a course I’d love to study for a couple days to understand his strategy and thinking.

As good as golf gets. Much different course architecture than I'm used to seeing, impeccably maintained, and amazing all the way around. Every hole is memorable

This course is spectacular. Absolutely beautiful from the first tee to the 18th hole. Elevation changes, native fescues, fast greens, you couldn't play a better course. Can't wait to play it again, it's in my top 5 of all time.
