Squirrel Run Golf Course in Plymouth,Mass is built on forty acres. When I viewed the site in 1991, it had thousands of tall pine trees on a flat, sandy site. The land is shaped like an elongated rectangle. The long side is a half-mile long, and the narrow side is about 600 feet. I designed an executive course with two par-fours and a collection of tricky par-threes. I didn’t have land to create challenges, so I built small, contoured golf greens.
If you visit Plymouth, check it out. It’s an executive-length golf course. I design and built a sister course a few miles away called Village Links. They both have plenty of golf challenges on small footprints.
Have you played either of these courses?
