Also known as the William J. Devine Golf Course, this 18 hole public golf facility is the second oldest public course in America. Considered one of the finest jewels in "Olmstead's Emerald Necklace," this venerable old course offers a pleasant inner city golfing experience only minutes from downtown Boston

Great muni -- rating against other muni's and for value. Played very early. Pace of play may not be as good later in the day.

It's not the greatest golf course but for a Boston resident, $39 for 18 is a fantastic deal. It's better than all the other courses in the Metro Boston area (Putterham/Newton Commonwealth/Presidents/Leo J Martin/Sandy Burr) and way cheaper. Only thing better is George Wright

Probably the best of the peri-boston muni-ish courses without any real "mickey mouse" holes (in comparison to say newton commonwealth) besides perhaps the seventeeth. The third, seventh and twelfth holes are darn good par 4s. The third is the longest 420 yard par four you'll find, playing oftentimes into the wind with an uphill second shot. The seventh is a tricky dogleg right. It looks deceptively easy to cut it from the tee, but you have to cut it with a lot of room to spare to carry trees and to have a reasonable shot at the green. I'd play it straight off this tee to leave a mid-iron to an EXTREMELY tricky green. The twelfth is a long uphill par four where you need to simply miss short if you're going to miss the green - par is a great score. If you're going to go muni around boston, this is the place to be.
