Premium Golf Courses ($$$)

The Brookside Club
11 Brigadoon Road

If you're looking for challenging Cape Cod golf courses, try Ballymeade. This well-maintained 6928 yard, par 72 course with its spectacular fairways and greens, will definitely test your skills - and perhaps your sense of humor, too, unless you can hit 'em long and straight. When you get to the 11th tee, take a few extra seconds to soak in the breathtaking views of Buzzard's Bay!

Olde Barnstable Fairgrounds Golf Course

Olde Barnstable Fairgrounds invites the public to "Come play where the pros play!". This 18-hole, par 71, 6479-yard course can make that boast, having hosted a number of prestigeous events including US Amatuer and US Open qualifiers.

Bayberry Hills
West Yarmouth Road South
W. Yarmouth
(508) 394-5597

The Town of Yarmouth has two top-notch public courses: Bayberry Hills, with 18 holes (par 72, 6724 yards), as well as a 9-hole links course called "The Links 9". The big course is quite popular, so if you can't get your desired tee time there - consider trying the links course. With its tall sea grasses, strategically placed bunkers and sometimes hearty breezes to contend with, it's a whole different world.

Dennis Highlands
825 Old Bass River Road
(508) 385-8347

One of two town-owned and operated Cape Cod golf courses in Dennis. The Highlands is a par 71 championship course with 6,500 yards of play across rolling terrain. Many golfers consider the Highlands to be the easier of the two Dennis MA public golf courses because, although still quite challenging, it's a bit more open than The Pines.

Dennis Pines
Golf Course Road
East Dennis
(508) 385-8347

With 18 holes of par 72 golf on 7029 yards from the longest tee, this course has some long, challenging holes - especially on the front nine. Accuracy is key on the tree-lined fairways!

Cranberry Valley
183 Oak Street
(508) 430-7560

Cranberry Valley is one of the more traditional Cape Cod golf courses, running alongside cranberry bogs, marshes and pine woodlands. This par-72 course has a yardage of 6745 over 18 holes (some challenging, others not so much!). Cranberry Valley is popular and centrally located, so it does tend to play a little slow, particularly on weekends.

Captain's Courses
1000 Freeman's Way
(508) 896-5100

There are two courses at The Captains - the Port and the Starboard, designed by renowned architect Brian Silva. Both are par 72 and just over 6700 yards. The Captains rank right up there with the best championship courses, getting glowing reviews from such prestigeous publications as Golf Digest and Sports Illustrated.
