Fun and challenging course in excellent shape especially given the amount of rain we’ve had recently. There was little casual water on the course. Greens rolled true and quicker than most.

The pace of play on this course was the worst I’ve ever experienced. Waited for about 15-20 mins to tee off on each hole. Expect 5-6 hours for a round. After finishing 9 I mentioned the slow pace of play to the ranger and he didn’t seem to care. Barely even gave me a response. A few groups ahead of us there were groups taking 2 or 3 tee shots each on every single hole. Not something that should be happening on a busy course. I would not play here again simply because of the horrible pace of play and the staffs unwillingness to do anything about it.

Great course, Great Value, the greens were in excellent and more important consistent shape. It almost seemed like every hole was uphill but then again a great value and a great outing.

Would I play there again, definitely.

One of my favorite layouts in Massachusetts. Wide fairways, some dog legs, and my favorite, very few blind shots. Green rolls great today. One piece of advice is keep the ball below the hole.

Once again south shore country club was in great shape . I played at 9:30 in the morning with three friends who all enjoyed the layout, while noticing how well maintained the course was . All the greens were in great shape , putting is always fast and just trust your speeds. Will certainly be back soon, need every club in the bag.

This course was in great condition at a great price for walking on a Sunday. The greens were consistent and challenging with considerable slope. The fairways and bunkers were neat and well maintained. Don’t be fooled by the yardage there are a lot of hills making for positional tee shots and elevation changes on approach shots.
