2016 Jazzy Awards Best Modern Course – Boston Golf Club

We’ll have a longer article soon, but the best modern curse we visited this year was Boston Golf Club, called “the best course designed since 1960” by one of the smartest architecture critics I know. Designed by Gil Hanse, the course is a 21st century Pine Valley, a rustic, minimalist Shangri-la deep in the forest west of Boston.

We’ll have our longer piece soon, but for now, here’s a photo tour:
