The course itself is okay, maybe a little expensive for what it is but okay. They have unusual rules that have made my first time there my last. No rain checks unless there is lightning. When I played it was raining hard with no signs of stopping, but couldn't get a rain check because there was no lightning. Felt like they were stealing money from me. They also are very strict with drinking. Didn't have any cart-person selling and in the clubhouse they only allow 2 drinks per person, so have to bring up others if you want to get a 6-pack for the group. The food was also average and the TVs were running infomercials instead of the pga event that was on. Too many other courses to be wasting time here, but I'm sure people have had better experiences.

Despite the intermittent rain, the course was in good shape. Lots of room on most holes off the tee and greens are large. Greens also are excellently conditioned and putt well.

Some par 4s are lengthy but overall the course is very fair. A good bargain for most golfers.

I played Braintree many times in the past,but not in the past couple of years. The course was in good shape, the greens had come back in after being aerated , and as long as you were in the fairways you were ok.But if you missed the short grass, it was wet & tough going for footing. I enjoyed the course, I play two times a week, and had a good time trying to keep it in fairways. Would like to see this course after it dries out

Still a bit soggy from spring rains, especially in the low areas, but the course overall is in good shape. Bring your long game and your accuracy game, there are a lot of very unforgiving holes, especially the long par 5s with water along either side. Fairways are still fairly wide but...don’t hook or slice! Greens in pretty good shape, appear to have been punched fairly recently. Due to length, a challenging Course to score on, especially on a windy day like we had.

A hidden gem just south of metro Boston. Great layout with great conditions. Although fairly flat, there are a few holes with elevation changes and sloping fairways. Water comes into play on many holes, including some 400+ yard par 4s. Weekends can be crowded, but the rangers do a good job at keeping things moving.

I saw that the last review was written in 2014! Here we are in March of 2016 and its still one of the few places that hasn't really taken off and become over crowded. This course is really close to me in Quincy and I love playing here the staff is friendly and the course can be quite challenging. Its definitely not an easy course but it has a good range of holes that will test your skills.

Also there is a farm on the course, don't forget to pet the goats to the right rough on the 10th fairway.

Growing up locally I have had the pleasure of playing a number of great courses in and around the Boston area. I stumbled upon Braintree this summer and have gone back now a number of times. The staff is extremely welcoming and the course conditions are wonderful, particularly for a municipal course. I feel Braintree is a hidden gem and deserves a great deal of credit. While the pace of play can be tough, the rangers are in full view and I have seen them enforcing rules regularly. This course is a great challenge for all levels of golfer and it's large greens provide excellent targets for those working on dialing in their approach shots. Price wise, this course is extremely fair and offers a number of in house discounted rates for those seeking a bargain. They recently began using Twitter, which I believe all courses should be using, and have alerted me a few times now of great deals that I took advantage of. If you're in the Boston area and are tired of the cities muni's, drive 15 mins south for an excellent round!
