Signature Hole

 

SOUTH across the marshlands and into the blue Atlantic, where, on a clear day you can see the Provincetown Monument on the horizon.

Imagine, if you will, a woman dressed in a long, black dress, pacing endlessly on her own widow's walk as she peers longingly into those same blue waters, hoping to catch sight of the ship that will carry her long-departed husband safely home.


 

EAST onto one of New England's most beautiful and historic harbors, where in 1812, Rebecca and Abigail Bates, "the Colonial Army of two," armed only with a fife and drum, dissuaded a fully-armed British 'Man of War' from entering their unprotected town.


 

WEST across the multi-hewed marsh to the historic North River. Visualize the majestic four-masted schooner "Columbia" as she sets sail, in 1792, from the Scituate shipyard once located here on its historic 'round the world voyage. With explorer and Captain Robert Grays at the helm, the Columbia will become the first American ship to successfully circumnavigate the globe. Not insignificantly, during that voyage, Capt. Grays sailed up a river in America's northwest, which he named after his ship, the "Columbia."


 

NORTH towards Boston, where between the distant trees you can make out the Lawson Tower, an iconic 153-foot water tower built in 1902 by Thomas W. Lawson, the millionaire financier who became know as the "Copper King." Located on his vast Scituate estate, known as "Dreamwold," Lawson used the tower's observation deck—much like a 'Widow's Walk'-to view his merchant ships, filled with copper ore, as they passed by the Scituate coast on their way to Boston

We hope the beautiful vistas, which change dramatically from season to season, will serve as a magnet to draw you back to to enjoy the Widow's Walk Golf Course time and time again.
