The public nine-hole, par 36 course features windswept terrain with small greens and rolling hills and presents golfers with the challenges of yesterday’s courses.
Nearby Cape Cod Highland Lighthouse is the oldest, highest, and most important lighthouse on Cape Cod. The first light was from whale oil, then lard oil, then kerosene, then electricity in 1932. Automated since 1986, it is still a functioning U.S. Coast Guard light. Locally it is known as Highland Light yet on maritime charts it is officially named Cape Cod Light.
Quick access to fresh water ponds, bike paths, cranberry bogs, and nature trails throughout the Cape Cod National Seashore.
