Top New England Golf Courses

The Region of New England containing Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island has long been home to great golf courses. Indeed, New England and the larger Eastern coast can be called the cradle for American golf, and is home to some of the oldest and most historic courses this side of the Atlantic. The following is a list of the best New England courses:


Segregansett Country Club 

85 Gulliver St.
Taunton, MA 02780

The course is hailed by local golfers for its challenging layout and the immaculate greens and fairways, as well as the relaxing atmosphere of the country club. Golfers should expect deep bunkers, a few turtle greens and forced carries to challenge them throughout their round of golf.
