For many golfers, the Fall season is one of the most popular times of the year to get out on the golf course. Fall weather is perfectly crisp – not too hot or too cold and offers absolutely stunning scenery with the bright foliage colors. Not to mention, the Fall season is a great time to find awesome deals on some of the best courses in Cape Cod, as every course is approaching the end of the season.
While there are countless beautiful locations in New England to golf during the Fall, Cape Cod definitely stands as one of the best places to visit and spend a day out on the course. On top of being home to some of the most scenic and aesthetically pleasing golf courses in the area, the Cape is filled with so many wonderful attractions that you can enjoy – with less tourist traffic! Not to mention, there is a great climate down the Cape all year long, making it easier to play golf for longer periods of time.
With more than 40 golf courses, beautiful waterfront views, delicious seafood, and so much more, what else could you ask for?!

Dennis Pines features a practice green, expansive driving range with all-weather mats, prepaid advance tee times, a complete pro shop, as well as tournament planning and golf lessons.
Highland Links is one of Cape Cod’s oldest golf courses, and one of the most scenic as well! It is located in North Truro and is one of America’s golf treasures, perched along the windswept bluffs overlooking the Atlantic directly next to the vintage Highland Light. Highland Links was founded circa 1892-1898, and the original “Highland House of Golf Links” was part of an ocean and cottage resort that was operated by a small family in Truro. Back in the day, this golf course was promoted as “2000 yards around… in attractiveness not equaled in the New England coast.”
In 1955, the links were refurbished by owner, Hal Conklin, and Highland Links ultimately became Federal property in the 1960’s. Today, Highland Links presents 2,644 yards of golf for a par of 35 through nine holes. Highland Links also offers the opportunity for golfers to join one of their ongoing leagues, or even start their own if it is of interest.
