Waverly Oaks Golf Club in Plymouth, Ma. is one of the more unique facilities in the New England. Not only does it boast a splendid 18-hole championship golf course it has a nine-hole “Challenger” layout that can be enjoyed by accomplished and beginning golfers alike.
Waverly Oaks works hard to live up to its billing as a daily fee facility that offers a private club feel. The courses are both kept in superb condition, the staff is welcoming and attentive, and the clubhouse better than those found at some members-only clubs.
Waverly Oaks’s 18-hole course offers a challenging yet approachable routing that will test but won’t beat you up. The best hole on the front side might be the 529-yard, par-five fourth, which has water guarding the green, making it risky to go for the putting surface in two. The 17th is perhaps the most difficult short hole in the area. It demands a lusty tee shot, likely with a fairway wood that must clear a waste area and a yawning bunker that sits some 15 feet below the putting surface.
Waverly Oaks’ 18-hole course plays around 7,100 yards from the tips, but there are four other sets of tees to meet the playing ability of all visitors. The club’s Challenger Course plays only 2,264 yards from the back and is a par-33. As mentioned above, the conditions on the Challenger track are just as good as on the Championship Course.
The club has a stunning 22,000-square-foot, shingle-style clubhouse overlooking the course.
The club is conducting a long-term renovation plan that will include a new short game practice area, bunker renovations and creation of new tee boxes on select holes.
The club is always running specials and encourages guests to join its email list to make sure they can take advantage on a weekly basis.
