The Captains Golf Course (Starboard course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1999

The Captains Golf Course is in fact home to two 18-hole championship layouts, named in nautical parlance as the Port and Starboard courses. The Starboard layout (on your right when standing on deck and facing the front of the ship!), is a well-rated and always popular golf course. This tree-lined parkland layout should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy.

The Starboard Course with a par of 72 and rating of 71.5 is generally considered the more forgiving of the two, and favoured by most who play here on a regular basis and by higher handicappers.

List of courses: Boston / Cape Cod / R.I.
