Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated!  Arnold Palmer

If you are hooked on golf like so many others, the courses in scenic Wenham, Massachusetts might be a perfect weekend get-a-way to enjoy some time on the links.  In addition to spending a few hours in the sun on the course, you could also round out the day with a tasty meal or dessert at the Wenham Tea House.  Let’s look at two of Wenham’s golf courses to plan your visit.

  • Wenham Country Club is an 18 hole semi-private club at 94 Main Street in Wenham, Massachusetts.  For over 100 years the Wenham Country Club has been providing a beautiful and friendly place on the North Shore to golf. The Club has grown from humble beginnings where the course was only open to townsfolk.  In 1999 Wenham Country Club celebrated its centennial year with a rebuilding of several greens and tees.  Improvements to the clubhouse were also made.  A golf professional was also hired to serve the club.  In the past years the professionals have included: John Theo, Bob Roche, Doug Smith, Alan Campbell, John Thoren, Jr., Peter Collins, and Darin Chin-Aleong.
  • Lakeview Golf Course –is an 18 hole golf course founded in 1928 by one of the original families of Wenham- the Batchelders.  In 1972 the Flynn Family took over ownership and Bill Flynn became the local professional for the course.  Lakeview is  known on the North Shore as the course where someone could play their first round of golf as well as continue playing until they had become an accomplished player and at the later stages of their golfing life when a shorter, easier walking course is desired return to “The View”. Lakeview also offers a unique options for tournaments that may help cut costs – Night Golfing.  This is a fun and special way to golf.  The balls, greens and flags are illuminated with glowing lights to help you find your way.  This special style of tournament has become a local favorite.
