Everyone from a beginner to a handicapped pro will find a course to challenge their particular skill set at any one of 27 public and 15 private courses. Dotted here and there among Cape Cod’s numerous quaint little villages, the courses run the gamut from friendly par 3s to professionally designed clubs of tournament quality.
