Golf, on Cape Cod, is a major tourist attraction. Featuring twenty seven public course that offer a wide variety of challenging designs and scenic landscapes, the Cape is one of the world’s best vacation destinations for anyone who loves the game.
Among the public courses on the Cape two of the most enjoyable are found in the town of Dennis; Dennis Pines and Dennis Highlands. Open to the public all year these two beautiful courses offer golfers some of the best golfing to be found anywhere in Massachusetts, and with all the other courses the Cape has to offer, that is definitely saying something.
Dennis Pines is a nearly seven thousand yard par 72 course set among 170 acres of pine forest. Opened in 1966 the layout is noted as one of the most challenging on the Cape with tree lined fairways that demand accuracy from tee to green. Water comes into play on four of the eighteen holes and the dog leg left 530 yard 12th hole is recognized as one of the toughest par 5’s anywhere.
Dennis Pines only plays 6,509 yards from the tips but carries a slope of 133 and rating of 72.2, enough to test a golfer of any skill level.
Dennis Highlands plays a little over six thousand yards from the middle tees and offers a slightly easier test with a rating of 68.5 and slope of 117.
The Highlands is a par 71 designed by Jack Kidwell and Mike Hurzdan and opened for play in 1984. Set on 175 acres of pine and oak, Dennis Highlands offers 18 holes of great golf as well as amenities like an expansive driving range, complete pro shop, restaurant and lounge and golf club rentals.
No matter which course you pick to play in Dennis you are bound to have a great time. Dennis Golf states that their mission is to offer the most enjoyable golf possible and bring you back and, with Dennis Pines and Dennis Highlands, they will likely do just that.
