Built on the historic Putterham Meadows, amid sweet chestnut trees and serene hemlock groves, the Robert T. Lynch Municipal Golf Course was designed by Stiles & Van Kleek. Across from Hoar Memorial Sanctuary and next to Larz Anderson Park, this green gem in Brookline’s Emerald Necklace is around the corner from the childhood home of the legendary Francis Ouimet, a man credited with single-handedly bringing golf to the American mainstream. Since its inaugural tee-off in 1933, it has continued to be a valued community resource.
