Why You Should Go: Of Boston’s many positive attributes, perhaps none is more overlooked than the ease with which city dwellers can get out into the suburbs and rural areas. With golf season finally upon us, there’s no reason not to head out of the Hub and straight to Quail Ridge Country Club in Acton for a pastoral 18 holes.
Why You’ll Love It: Serenely sit amid 164 acres of forest, Quail Ridge’s golf course was nominated for Golf Digest’s 2006 “Best New Private Golf Courses in America” contest. A challenging, yet rewarding course design will have you snaking past water hazards, bunkers, wetlands and rock formations as you gauge the frequent elevation changes. Bounded by conservation land and water, Quail Ridge is a breathtaking, enjoyable course for golfers of all levels.
