Rankings:  9th      

The Takeaway:  Famous for its proximity to the Kennedy family compound, Hyannisport enjoys a wonderful location on the ocean but doesn’t offer enough beyond the final four holes to consider it elite for the Northeast.  Grade B

What to Expect:  Hyannisport has been famous for years as the preferred playground for John F. Kennedy when he teed it up in his home state. Located just down the road from the famous Kennedy compound, the course enjoys a nice setting near the ocean although the water rarely is a factor to consider when playing. Holes 15-18 are flat out awesome and worth waiting for, however the opening 14 are mostly flat, tree lined offerings with a few highlights but mainly lack character or memorability. Out of the par 3s, 4s, and 5s, it is the one-shotters that make the best offering with a commendable collection. Overall the course is kept in great shape and it can be enjoyed on foot as an easy walk or by cart for a more leisurely outing. Ultimately, Hyannisport is a solid track, but in a state as loaded as Massachusetts is for elite golf, it lacks the juice to be considered among the Bay State’s best.
