Golf New England
When you visit with your car rental Quincy, you will find that Granite Links has 27 holes of links style golf. This course is on what was once actively mined quarries, which you can still see in some of the outcroppings and water hazards (some of which are 40-400 feet deep). Links style courses originated in Scotland, and were typically build close to the ocean. The courses are challenging because of the wind that would come off the water and the lack of trees. You will find that this course has some of those features with a modern twist. If you would like, there are also lessons available for you to become a better player. A half hour lesson is $50.

An interesting history of the granite industry
The course was built on a granite quarry, which was once famous around the world. Many of the statues and monuments that were built in America were made from the granite that came from here. The first commercial railroad was founded in Quincy because of the granite to be transported to Charlestown. At its peak, there were nearly two dozen granite quarries operating in the city. However, after World War II, cheaper building materials led to a decline in the industry and the last quarry closed in the 1960s. You can see part of the former quarries, which were reshaped into the Granite Links Gold Club.
