The first stop on our trip was Black Rock Country Club in Hingham. This wonderful course just south of Boston was designed by local Boston architect Brian Silva in 2002. I enjoy Silva's courses because he takes inspiration from MacDonald/Raynor architecture.
Our second course on day three of the trip was another great Donald Ross course, Vesper Country Club in Tyngsborough. In 1914, Ross added nine holes on the mainland and re-designed the existing nine holes that were located on an island in the Merrimack River.
After our round at Vesper, we headed south to Providence, Rhode Island. Day four of our trip began at Metacomet Country Club in East Providence, Rhode Island. Metacomet was redesigned by Donald Ross in the 1920's and was in the process of a restoration when I played it.

After our round at Rhode Island, we headed down to Cape Cod for a few days around the Cape. Day five of our trip began at Oyster Harbors Club in Osterville. This 1926 Donald Ross design has a very laid back atmosphere.
