Red Tail Golf Club (Kingston, MA)
Boston City Tournament #2 - Sunday June 28

Red Tail Golf Courses

Red Tail Golf Club

Red Tail is a New England gem tucked away in quiet Devens, Massachusetts. The ride from Boston is worth every minute as the golf course provides a challenging but very playable test for all skill levels. The Brian Silva designed course fits into its location by flowing through the New England hills, streams, and trees. A few short par 4s give opportunities for birdies, but missing into the various bunkers or woods will turn the birdie opportunity into a nightmare. The course is in great condition and will be a fun test for Boston Nextgen City Tour players.
