Ferncroft CC is a golfer's delight. Our Robert Trent Jones, Sr. championship course, located in Middleton Massachusetts, has hosted scores of top area tournaments including the LPGA Boston Five Classic from 1980-1990. A good test for even the most accomplished golfers, it's charm and integrity to place it among Massachusetts' finest courses, and it is a course you'll love to play week in and week out. The yardage from the back tees is 6632 and par is 72 for men and 73 for ladies.
Golf Course Accolades from Across Massachusetts and the Nation
The championship golf course has received numerous accolades, both nationally and within Massachusetts. Most recently, North Shore Golf called FCC's 18th hole "stunning" and named it the second best finishing hole in the area, and Northshore Magazine also recognized Ferncroft CC's 543-yard par 5 number 18 as one of the best holes on the North Shore. Robert Trent Jones considered this to be one of the best finishing holes he ever created, and many Massachusetts golfers consider this a must play course.
“This hole is all about risk-reward; You make your decision based on not only how long you hit your tee shot but what side of the fairway you’re on and the pin placement. That’s what makes it a great finishing hole. There’s so much to consider and so many different options. It’s a hole that really makes you think.”
- Lisa Anderson, five-time Ferncroft CC Women’s Club Champion
One-of a Kind Executive Course
The executive course is a great gateway to golf for beginners who want to learn without pressure, or an excellent place to walk a few holes after work or when time is short. The executive course is also open throughout the winter, weather permitting.
“It’s a gateway to golf and the ideal setting to learn the game or walk a few holes. One fellow, in summer 2006, took his kids out for their first round and aced the first hole. We have a unique facility that made this memory possible.”
- Phil Leiss, Head PGA Professional
