Must Play: Waverly Oaks Golf Club
The staff at Waverly Oaks Golf Club, located in Plymouth, Ma., works hard to live up to its billing as a daily fee facility that offers a private club feel. The course is kept in superb condition, the staff is welcoming and attentive, and the clubhouse better than those found at some members-only clubs.

Designed by acclaimed Golf World Magazine’s 1999 Golf Course Architect of the Year, Brian Silva, Waverly Oaks Golf Club surrounds golfers with a stunning natural environment and provide a challenge for those of any skill level. Waverly Oaks is easily accessible from Boston, Cape Cod, and across New England.

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.

Much of the testiness of the layout comes from its very solid par-threes, three of which play over 207 yards, including the 234-yard third and the 251-yard 17th, with the latter being 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. If you find yourself in that bunker it’s going to be one heck of an up and down. If you can manage it, it will be something to brag to your buddies about a few holes later in the clubhouse’s restaurant, the Waverly Grille.

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 has a 22,000-square-foot, shingle-style clubhouse overlooking the course.
