Round 54: Scituate CC
Scituate CC was the 54th course in my quest to play them all. We teed it up at SCC after battling Widow's Walk in the morning. ⠀
Scituate CC is a nine hole private course that allows for public play on Mondays. Shoutout to @bostongolfsocial for organizing the 27 event. Always a blast.
The course sits on the marsh, but a lot of holes play up or down the rolling hills. ⠀
The opening few holes are the attention grabbers. The 1st is an uphill par 4 that is not a gentle handshake. It requires two very good shots, and the green is small and two-tiered, protected by a bunker short right. ⠀
The second is an absolute gem. A par three with the marsh as the backdrop. The perched green is heavily sloped from back to front. Wayward shots will be repelled in any direction. Par is a good score no matter where your tee shot ends up given the challenging green. ⠀
The picturesque par 5 third runs along the marsh. Three bunkers 30 yards short of the green make going for the green in two a risky choice. The fairway is extremely narrow in the driving area, too. The green is the best one on the course. Great undulations.
From there, the course ebs and flows. The routing is odd, as players cross the street and walk along half the 6th hole to reach the 5th tee box on the edge of the property. ⠀
The 9th hole is a good finisher, the tee shot plays back down along the same slopes that made the first hole so challenging.⠀
SCC is a fine nine-holer that is punctuated by one of the best par 3s I've played and some lovely views of the marsh.⠀
