The Golfing is Always Good at Waverly Oaks
The course conditions at Waverly Oaks Golf Club in Plymouth, Massachusetts are already superb.



The course came out of the cold weather in fine shape, said head pro Dave Rose, and opened on March 16, considerably earlier than normal. The course was aerified last November, meaning there will be no interruption of play this spring, he added.
The club is offering a season pass for $3,200 this year which gets the individual signing up unlimited play, a golf cart for each round and range balls. Pass holders can also make tee times 14 days in advance instead of the usual seven.
Waverly Oaks is annually one of the best-conditioned tracks in New England, and offers a challenging yet approachable routing that will test you but won’t beat you up.
The best hole 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 beef on the layout comes from its very good 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 region. It demands a lusty tee shot over a waste area and a yawning bunker that sits some 15 feet below the putting surface.
In fact, the 17th is the culmination of a three-hole stretch that will test even the best players. The challenge begins with the demanding 474-yard par-four 15th and moves to monstrous, 636-yard par-five 16th before concluding at the 17th. Come through this trio of holes even par and can brag about it in the comfortable clubhouse after your round.
Waverly Oaks’ 18-hole course plays around 7,100 yards from the tips but there are four other sets of tees.
The club also offers a neat Challenger Course, which is a great spot for beginners and high-handicappers to have some fun. The layout plays only 2,264 yards from the back and is a par-33. Conditions on the Challenger track are just as good as on the Championship Course.
