Maintenance maintenance maintenance

Within easy reach of Boston the course is very reasonably priced at $25 for 18, 7 days/week. Nestled along the banks of the Charles river this could be a beautiful course. Unfortunately the poor maintenance of the grounds will confirm the fears of anyone worried about the condition of Municipal courses. I've played here often and the same bare patches on the fairways are present from year to year. What there is of fairway is poorly maintained hardly rewarding an accurate stroke. The back 9 has it's share of challenging holes if your up for some long walks between green and tee. With varied users and closely packed tee times, play can be very slow with sometimes 3 groups playing or waiting on one hole. Greens are passible with some challenging putts. Club house doesn't appear to have enjoyed much in the way of maintenance since it was built in the 1930's. Overall the state would do well to sell the course to a private concern, which might improve the facility.

Course is in fun to play, but is just in TERRIBLE shape. Fairways are often bare, rough is spotty and inconsistent, and greens are just plain awful. On many greens there are literally big sand patches! The layout is fun and a few par 4's are reachable from the tee, but the course is very short and relatively easy, other than the difficulty provided by the poor shape it's in.

Location (12 minutes from Boston), price ($30 to walk 18), and no tee times (first-come, first-served) will keep me coming back for screw around rounds, but this is not a place for serious golf.

Played front nine. Its a beautiful course that has been wholly neglected. The first few greens were almost unplayable, due to bumps and bare spots. The fairways are almost 1/3 bare. Most courses I've played this summer are lush due to the amount of rain we've gotten. Played from the back tees and except for the two par fives, the course is short. Played mid-week about noon and the play was slow. First time I've played this course and I can't see myself going back. However, I probably will return for the driving range.

nice course for beginners

I am a part of a weekday league so I have only played the front 9. 3rd hole is a tough par 3, to get it on the green from the tee takes some skill. Major slopes on either side make it much more difficult. One problem I do have is with the abundance of geese and geese crap on the 5th and 6th holes, not to mention driving range balls scattered throughout. Not the best as far as golf course maintenance, the rough grass is HUGE. Anyway, for the money its worth it.

Well, the Leo J certainly could use some TLC but for the money it is a good value. Most all of the people who work at the Leo J. and play at the Leo J. are friendly and helpful.On the third hole Par 3 my advice is to aim a little bit to the right of the green or else you may very well end up over by the sand bunker to the left of green.
A great course for beginners and all who want to practice. Thanks...

A convenient, every-day municipal course for those who just want to play golf. Driving range and putting green add a full point to my "Amenities" rating and the fact that it is a state facility is a huge plus. Not many left and it remains a valuable resource to a lot of people who could not otherwise afford to play.
It may not be Cypress Point but it's an enjoyable day on the links.

Are you kidding me? This course is not one of the "best" in Massachusetts? It's a nice inexpensive choice for novices who are just learning the game. Not that there's anything wrong with beginners, but rounds at Leo J. can take an eternity because there are so many. Greens are very bumpy and slow; no clubhouse. The folks who run the place are very nice--I use their driving range.

Hacker course. Great to blow of some steam and skip out for a few hours. For the price, A+. For quality fairways and greens, D-. For speed of play D-. For hitting balls before work on range A. For havinga few beers with college buddies on a Saturday afternoon A.

Average course in every way. To rank this place #2 in Mass. and #36 in USA is like comparing a Boston Whaler to Tiger's PRIVACY yacht. Totally unrealistic appraisal.Plus,people who purposely fool around with stupid evaluations just ruin the program for everyone.

this is the worst course in america, i play here a lot in the summer and every time i play there it gets less and less fun, the people put no money into the course and have not done any maintenance in 500 years, this place is a joke to say the least.

One of the best courses in the country behind Cypress, Shinnecock, and Pine Valley. Far better than it's public counterparts of Pebble, Pinehurst, Bethpage, and Torrey Pines.

How on earth does this dog track end up in the top 100 for Golflink? Obviously a flawed system. One of the worst maintained courses I have ever played.

Some fairways and tee boxes are in horrible shape. The 17th tee box is basically gravel. Greens are mostly good.

should be one of the worst 100 courses of America.
back nine is a nice layout, but out of shape.

Good course for beginners, but bring bug spray!

Best MDC course in metro Boston!
