i play here all the time and i've never had anything close to a negative experience with the staff here.
course is usually pretty green and taken care of, the greens usually take a bit to get up to speed in the summer but once they do, they can be pretty tough.
if you play from the white, the 4th plays as a very long par 4, but the 7th is a manageable par 3 at 197. from the blue the 4th is an easy par 5 but the 7th is a ridiculous par 3 at 235 (hitting onto a green in the middle of a salt marsh).
there's a bar in the clubhouse with a decent selection on tap.

This course is one of the most scenic on the North Shore. Unfortunately the staff here is by far the worst that I have ever come across in golf. I called the pro-shop to ask about rates and the quoted me one rate and then charged me another once I got to the course. When I asked about the discrepancy the employee treated me like an idiot. We were then yelled at by a groundskeeper twice for playing too slow when we started with open holes in front of us and caught the group by the fourth.
I will never go back to this course and would recomend that you follow suit.

In the past years this course has well improved. It is well shown by the improvement from the past years. For a public course it well seems like a private course. If you want to have a nice nine hole day come to cape ann

Blue by you

If you like blue collar courses well this may be for you. If you like being treated poorly and feeling blue while spending hard earned money, then you might want to pass.
