Highland Links image
Truro, MA
(Range: 3 miles)
One of Cape Cod’s oldest golf courses, and perhaps its most scenic, Highland Links in North Truro is one of America’s golf treasures, perched high along windswept bluffs overlooking the Atlantic next to the vintage Highland Light. Founded circa 1892-1898, Highland has seen more than a hundred years of golf. More significant than its age is Highland’s heritage; circumstances keep it a genuine links, as close to the Scottish tradition found anywhere in the eastern United States, with deep natural rough, Scotch broom, heath, and spectacular ocean views. (Curated content from www.highlandlinkscapecod.com)

Chequessett Club image
(Range: 4 miles)
Chequessett’s nine-hole public golf course is one of the hidden gems of Cape Cod, tucked on a bluff overlooking Cape Cod Bay. Multiple sets of tees provide 18 different looks at deceptively demanding greens that are among the most interesting on the Cape. And when the wind shifts with the changing tide, the course has even more looks, requiring challenging shot-making decisions. Water hazards, small undulating greens, and strategically placed bunkers add to the fun and challenge of this unique semi-links course. (Curated content from chequessettclub.com)

Race Point Lighthouse image
(Range: 8 miles)
As early as 1808, Provincetown’s residents asked for a lighthouse at Race Point. Travel was treacherous for vessels negotiating the bars near Race Point at Cape Cod’s northern tip. Race Point Lighthouse was first lighted on November 5, 1816. The rubblestone tower’s light was 25 feet above sea level, and was one of the earliest revolving lights - in an attempt to differentiate it from other lighthouses on Cape Cod. (Curated content from www.racepointlighthouse.org)
Nauset Lighthouse image
(Range: 10 miles)
Nauset Light, the most well-known and photographed lighthouse on Cape Cod, is located within the boundaries of the Cape Cod National Seashore. It is an important part of Eastham's cultural and maritime history. In 1993 a group of citizens in Eastham formed the Nauset Light Preservation Society (NLPS), a non-profit volunteer organization whose original mission was to rescue the lighthouse. Through the successful efforts of the NLPS the Nauset Lighthouse was moved approximately 300 feet back from the edge of a sixty-foot high eroding cliff in 1996. Though no longer under the auspices of the United States Coast Guard, Nauset Light serves as a private aid to navigation used by the fishing fleets and small recreational boaters who navigate close to the shore. (Curated content from www.nausetlight.org)
