While most Boston-area golfers know Hingham as the home of Black Rock Country Club and the nationally ranked Boston Golf Club, few are in the know about two of the town's best-kept secrets: South Shore Country Club, and buckets.
A semi-private, municipally owned 1922 Stiles and Van Kleek design, South Shore CC stands alongside places like Hooper and Cape Cod CC as a publicly accessible Golden Age charmer. The course is cleverly routed in a butterfly pattern, with each nine rumbling out and back to the clubhouse through some heaving topography. The wonderful collection of two-shotters is highlighted by the drive-and-pitch first, with its massively expanded green now offering delicate front hole locations, and the funky and fantastic punchbowl 16th.
We have 32 spots open on Sunday, June 12th for the Cooper Open, so grab a friend and join the fun. You might just walk away with your very own Hingham Bucket!
