Gil Hanse of Pennsylvania was just beginning to make a name for himself as a golf architect when he was picked to design this new course, and he achieved a new level of respect when it opened in 2005. The seemingly untamed native landscape, despite its location near the cradle of the Revolutionary War, has an English feel to it. The rolling ground embeds subtleties that cannot be unraveled with just a round or two; satisfying scores require time to figure the landings and the multiple possible approaches to the greens, whether through the air or along the turf. The flash bunkers, and the way that the edges of the holes are deliberately left wooly and unkempt, create a delightful contrast with the immaculately maintained fairways as you work your way through the layout. Nearby attractions include the Adams Historical National Park and John Kennedy's presidential library.
