100 GREATEST/BEST IN STATE SCORES
1 / 3
“The only Seth Raynor design in Massachusetts, Dedham is an extremely private old-school course that was recently renovated by Brian Silva. The course plays short at just over 6200 yards but isn't as easy as it sounds with a lot of quirk and elevation change. There are a number of really interesting holes here beginning with the first two, which run parallel over a valley and creek. The Double Maiden green at 8 and Alps at 9 are also particularly well-down as is the Lion Mouth at 15. There are a few too many average holes to crack the top 10 in a state like Massachusetts for me, but Dedham is well-worth the play and a very fun round."

“Nice short, old course with interesting greens and contours."
3 / 3
“Lovely clubhouse setting up on a hill, but the severity of that hill really takes a toll on the quality of golf on #1, #2, #4, and #18. There are some really great holes (#9, #13, #14, and #16) at Dedham post redo by Brian Silva, but the routing is not great. A number of very long walks between holes or walk backs really detract from the experience. The greens serve as the course's primary defense and can be quite severe and challenging."
