Braintree Municipal Golf Course

  13 Reviews

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!

One of my favorite courses.  The prices can't be beat.  Really!  They are the cheapest I've ever played at.  Plus the course is really nice.  Great views, well maintained, friendly staff.

Best public course I've played near Boston. It was in excellent condition - good fairways despite the rain and pure greens - and VERY cheap ($42 with cart). I played during the week, so I can't comment on the pace of play at peak times. But I will definitely go back.
