The city’s golf courses are now open for the 2022 season

Pre-recorded tee times are now available at Boston’s two golf courses as the 2022 season kicks off on municipal and private fairways and greens across the state.

The city owns and operates the William J. Devine Golf Course at Franklin Park in Dorchester, the second oldest public course in the United States and part of the city’s Emerald Necklace, and the George Wright Golf Course in Hyde Park, an urban gem built in 1938 to a design by famed golf course architect Donald Ross. Both courses have received national accolades as challenging sites for golf in the Boston area.

The Wright 18-hole, par-70 course is open seven days a week until November, weather permitting. Contact PGA Professional Scott Allen at (617) 364-2300 for more information. The second oldest public golf course in America and part of the historic Emerald Necklace, the Devine Course is open year-round, weather permitting. Contact PGA Professional Kevin Frawley at (617) 265-4084 for more information.

Golfers can go to www.cityofbostongolf.com for departure times and fares for both routes. Boston residents, who qualify for breaks on weekday and weekend play rates, can also visit this site to enter a draw for a season ticket. Updates can be followed on Twitter @FranklinParkGC and @GeorgeWrightGC.
