City golf courses open for 2022 season

Mayor Michelle Wu announced that Boston’s municipal golf courses are now open for the 2022 season.

The City owns and operates the William J. Devine Golf Course in Dorchester and the Donald Ross-designed George Wright Golf Course in Hyde Park. Both have received national accolades as must-visit courses to play golf in the Boston area.

Golfers can go to for tee times and fares. Boston residents can also visit this site to enter a draw for a season ticket. For updates, City golf courses can be followed on Twitter @FranklinParkGC and @GeorgeWrightGC.

Founded in 1938, the Donald Ross-designed, 18-hole, par-70 George Wright Golf Course is a hidden gem in Boston’s Hyde Park neighborhood, open seven days a week until November. Contact PGA Professional Scott Allen at (617) 364-2300 for more information.

America’s second oldest public golf course and part of the historic Emerald Necklace, the William J. Devine Golf Course at Franklin Park in Dorchester offers an enjoyable golfing experience just minutes from downtown Boston and is open year-round, weather permitting. The outdoor patio has chairs, tables and umbrellas that can accommodate up to 100 people. Contact PGA Professional Kevin Frawley at 617-265-4084 for more information.

Tee times are required in advance. The pro shop, restaurant and bathrooms are all open and sanitation stations are provided throughout the club building.
