   George Wright Golf Course Est. 1938

Where2Golf says: 

George Wright Golf Course is located just a 20-minute drive from downtown Boston in the suburb of Hyde Park. This wonderful Donald Ross municipal course starts out from a large red brick clubhouse that wouldn't look remotely out of place in a private country club ( ... as was the original intention for the course).

The layout's DNA comes straight from its surroundings on the edge of neighbouring Stony Brook Park. The Park's undulating terrain, mature indigenous trees and myriad of rocky outcroppings are also hallmarks of the golf course.

Hats off to President Franklin D. Roosevelt's WPA public works funding programme. It gave Donald Ross an estimated $1,000,000 and upwards of 1,000 men to craft this enjoyable and playable course from what was initially considered to be immensely difficult golfing terrain.
