Decided to play this course because the reviews said they offered in cart GPS. When I got to the ProShop they said they no longer offer GPS because of cost or equipment breaking. I was already out there so I decided to play... and I can tell why they need GPS in cart ... there are the occasional 150,175,200 markers but nothing else. It hard to find a sprinkler and none were marked. There are maybe one or two level holes everything else has a pretty significant up or downhill. I wasn't a big fan, but I guess that is preference.

This course may be an enjoyable experience for men but the two times I have played this course have not been for me. The marshalls and maintenence men are extremely sexist. This type of behavior and treatment in 2010 is not acceptable. I will never play here again because of them. They have no idea what they are talking about, are extremely rude, stubborn, and openly show disdain. If you want to play a relaxing round of golf do not play here. One extra tidbit, the lady at the snack shack is not polite or happy in the least and they sell you expired Snickers bars for $1.00. Gross.
I recommend Pine Ridge GC, while it is more expensive its a more enjoyable experience and has a driving range which allows you te opportunity to warm-up before a round.

Diamond in the rough part of town...

Only knowing the course was in a dense urban setting I had low expectations. Boy was I wrong. What a classic lay-out! Built in 1914 it has hung on despite so many environmental distractions and disadvantages. This is a bomber's course with ample fairways, few trees in play, and smooth rocket-fast, deceptive greens. There are a handful of short, "drivable" par 4s but the greens are the course's best defense because they are so fast and difficult to read. This is also a hilly course with either elevated or sunken greens, so course knowledge is really important to pull the right club. The lay-out is just great and many holes are gorgeous to look at, especially #1, 10, 17, and 18. #10 is the kind of par 3 where you wished you had a bucket of balls to shoot at just for fun, maybe the signature hole on the course. It's 175 yds from an elevated tee. One of the best 3s you can visualize. The 12th tee is very interesting. You are literally just a few feet from cars idling at a stop light. You hear music thumping loudly trying to settle over the tee-shot. There's also a sign there that reads something like "Golfers not allowed to leave the course to buy anything." Helpful advice. Overall one of the best conditioned courses. Lush and tight fairways, too. If you can tolerate the noise and [as previously mentioned] non-golfers hanging around or cutting through parts of the course you'll have a good day.

The Clifton shop was so friendly! They showered my Red Sox fans/visiting friends with attention, carts, rental clubs & this place has great food concession. Crab cakes & the best chicken sandwiches....mmmmm! Greens & fairways were in super shape despite the Eastern drought.

I have to agree with previous comment. The community is very "run down" and it appears to effect the course. At one point, locals were walking across the course, even across the greens, asking for spare change.

Tee-boxes were is horrible condition and moved for repairs. This course could be rather nice if the conditions are improved.
