Mayor Michelle Wu has announced that the City of Boston’s municipal golf courses are now open for the 2022 season.
The City owns and operates the William J. Devine Golf Course in Dorchester and the George Wright Golf Course in Hyde Park designed by Donald Ross. Both have received national accolades as must-play courses when golfing in the Boston area.
Golfers can go to cityofbostongolf.com for tee times and rates. Boston residents can also go to that site to enter a raffle for a season pass. For updates, the City’s golf courses can be followed on Twitter @FranklinParkGC and @GeorgeWrightGC.
Founded in 1938, the 18-hole par 70 Donald Ross-designed George Wright Golf Course is a hidden gem in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Boston open seven days a week through November. Contact PGA Professional Scott Allen at (617) 364-2300 for more information.
The second-oldest public golf course in America and part of the historic Emerald Necklace, the William J. Devine Golf Course at Franklin Park in Dorchester offers a pleasant golf experience only minutes from downtown Boston and is open year-round, weather permitting. The outdoor patio features chairs, tables, and umbrellas with seating for up to 100 people. Contact PGA Professional Kevin Frawley at (617) 265-4084 for more information.
Tee times are required in advance. The pro shop, restaurant, and bathrooms are all open, and sanitation stations are provided throughout the clubhouse building.
