Here is a rarity - a Donald Ross-designed course that is open to the public.

Ross did the design in the late 1920s, but the project was abandoned in 1929 due to the Great Depression. Construction began again in 1932 as a WPA project; by the time the course opened in 1938, more than $1 million had been spent. The course is named for George Wright, a baseball HOFer and an original member of the Cincinnati Reds; Wright is credited by some as having helped introduce golf to the Boston area around the turn of the century.

Wonderful golf course. Not easy. Definitely the best muni in Boston.

George Wright is a gem of a golf course. This Donald Ross design has some of his best holes anywhere. The 3rd, 5th, 8th, 9th and 10th holes are classic Ross designs. The greens were the best I have played this year on any course - public or private. If you haven;t played George Wright you're really missing a fantastic golf experience.

Best municipal course in Boston. Awesome and challenging track. Highly recommend anyone visiting the area to check out this Donald Ross designed course.

This is probably to most unique muni-course I have ever played. The old buildings and stonework dating back probably 100 years makes this an very interesting place to play. My first Donald Ross (I think) was a great experience. What the course lacked in amenities it made up for in character.

This is a great track. A true Donald Ross design that is being returned to health by new Superintendent after years of neglect. Lots of blind shots, tricky greens, and narrow fairways. Over the last 5 years, the greens have been expanded and roll very true, drainage is no longer an issue, bunkers are being replaced and added, and trees are being taken down. If you haven't played a Donald Ross course yet, this is the place to play.
