Best of Boston

1999 Best Golf Course, Urban

George Wright Golf Club

This Donald Ross-designed course is tucked deep in the heart of Hyde Park. Once you’re there, you’ll find a challenging Depression-era par-70 layout that calls for patience: The two par fives are reachable in two shots only for the longer hitters, while the par fours vary from the very long (the 450-yard #10) to the very short (the 313-yard #2). Holes 8 through 10 can make or break a good round. Expect a good test of all facets of your game, in addition to some considerable time waiting to tee off. This is city golf, after all.
