- Waverly Oaks Golf Club
- Atlantic Country Club
- Pinehill’s Golf Club (Jones Course & Nicklaus Course)
- Southers Marsh Golf Club
- Rockland Golf Course

In this article, we look at the golf courses in the Plymouth area in detail, including what makes each course unique.
Crosswinds Golf Club- Plymouth
The Crosswinds Golf Club’s rolling hills and pine-covered sandhills make it a challenging course. The bordering cranberry bogs make the challenge worthwhile, especially if you tee off during harvesting season. The course is exceptionally re-playable as it has 27 holes instead of the typical 18. While you can’t play all 27 in one go, you can vary which nine you play each time.
Additionally, Crosswinds Golf Club has some of the best rates in the area, making it a popular place to go.
Waverly Oaks Golf Club- Plymouth
The Waverly Oaks Golf Club is one of the top public courses in New England. It was given the Best New Course award by Golf Digest when it opened in 1998 and named one of the top 100 courses you can play by Golf Magazine.
What makes it so unique? The course design. Along the course, you will find several misleading holes that can be difficult to navigate but are enjoyable to play. One of the most notable holes is the par-five 16th hole that stretches a massive 636 yards long.
Atlantic Country Club- Plymouth
The Atlantic Country Club is one of the shorter courses in the area, only coming in at 6,700 yards in length. However, the course can be tough to navigate and requires excellent forethought and precision, making it an ideal course for those who may lack the power in their drives.
The course has been known for its excellent playing conditions and is well worth visiting.
Pinehills Golf Club (Jones & Niklaus Course)- Plymouth
The Pinehills Golf Club is considered one of the premier courses in the New England area. With that title comes a hefty price tag.
However, with two perfectly manicured courses, the value for the price is there. Each course, appropriately named after its designers, offers a unique challenge and gorgeous scenery.
If you are interested in checking out the courses, the club has posted aerial videos of each hole.
Southers Marsh Golf Club – Plymouth
The Southers Marsh Golf Club is another short course in the area, only measuring at 4,100 yards in total. However, if you want to explore cranberry bogs while golfing, this is your place to do it!
The course runs through the 100-year-old, actively maintained cranberry bogs. With more of a relaxed atmosphere than some of the other clubs in the area, this is an excellent course to just take in the bogs and enjoy your round of golf.
Rockland Golf Course – Rockland
Rockland Golf Course features two 18-hole courses surrounded by large, lush trees. Interestingly enough, one of the courses is made up of all par-3s, while the other has only par-3s and par-4s.
Rockland Golf course is home to the longest par-3 east of the Mississippi River.
Widows Walk Golf Course – Scituate
The Widows Walk Golf Course was built with the environment in mind. It became a certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary course in 2002 because of its attention to limiting the impact on the surrounding nature. As a result, the course is gorgeous to play.
Widows Walk’s attention to nature does not impact the playability of the course. In fact, it was listed as one of the best new golf courses in America in 1998 and added to the list of top courses to play in 2004.
Poquoy Brook Golf Club – Lakeville
The Poquoy Brook Golf Club was built in 1960 and has undergone continuous updates since its opening. The owners put in a lot of work to keep it in pristine condition.
It is a notable course in the area as it has been the host of the Massachusetts Open Championship on several occasions.
