Two Great Courses Make Barnstable On Cape Cod a Must Visit

Hyannis Golf Course

Fall on Cape Cod is one of the sweetest times of the year to enjoy the game in a relaxed, picturesque setting.

Barnstable Golf Director of Golf, Bruce McIntyre comments, “It’s an excellent time of year to come to the Cape to play golf. Golfers will find off season rates at a number of terrific Cape Cod layouts, hotels, restaurants, and gift shops. Course conditions are excellent in the fall. It’s a great opportunity to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather and all that the Cape has to offer at value rates.”

Barnstable Golf features 36 holes of incredible Cape Cod golf. Located in the charming town are two of the best courses in the area, Hyannis Golf Course, located in Hyannis, and Olde Barnstable Fairgrounds, located in Marston Mills. Both courses embody all the best qualities of Cape Cod golf.

Home to the Cape Cod Open and the 2015 Cape Cod PGA Championship, Hyannis Golf Course sits at the geographical center of Cape Cod, just minutes from downtown Hyannis, the Barnstable Airport and the Ferries to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. The course plays to a par of 71 and features the area’s best practice facility, including a 55-station practice range and two practice greens.

In addition to being a wonderfully fun layout, Hyannis Golf Course is well known for having greens as nice as you’ll find anywhere—including those at private facilities. The putting surfaces are consistent, fast, and smooth and are a big reason HGC is one of the finest golf experiences Cape Cod has to offer.

Olde Barnstable Fairgrounds was formerly home to the Barnstable County Fair, which is what gives it its name. The course first opened in 1992 and quickly became one of the most popular in the area. Along with Hyannis, it is one of two municipal courses in the area for members to enjoy. The Mark Mungeam-designed gem continues to be on the “must play” list of avid golfers each year.

Olde Barnstable Fairgrounds Golf Course

The walkable layout in the country features four sets of tees, ample landing areas, and large receptive, well bunkered greens.  There is a large spacious clubhouse that houses a well stocked golf shop and restaurant with a deck overlooking the course and neighboring grass airport.
