U.S. Open

Pinehurst Resort & Country Club (Course No. 2)



Boston Golf Club

Hingham, MA, United States Private

Overview

Boston Golf Club, in the south suburb of Hingham, is a modern-day Pine Valley, massaged by architect Gil Hanse and his team from dramatic coastal topography with gashes of unsullied sand. Fairways tumble across the landscape, posing some blind shots that are embraced, not criticized. One stretch surrounds an old strip mine, with mining spoils incorporated as chocolate-drop mounds. One vein of sand serves as a “Hell’s One-Third Acre” hazard. Like No. 64 Garden City Golf Club, Boston finishes with a terrific par 3.
