Although the TPC Boston, which will stage the upcoming Deutsche Bank Championship, only opened on June 28, 2002, it has already established itself as one of the leading clubs on the nationwide TPC Network owned or operated by the PGA TOUR.
The TPC Boston is a private club that, according to it's official website, "has been created to provide its members with a unique golfing and entertainment experience in a setting of truly unsurpassed service".
The Club offers an 18-hole Arnold Palmer signature championship golf course of sufficient excellence as to have been chosen as the site for the second leg of the four-leg, FedEx Cup play-off series .
Innovative design and a great deal of respect for nature are the hallmarks of all truly great golf courses, and TPC Boston's architects believe that their championship layout "is no exception".
Originally designed by Palmer, the club's layout was re-designed in 2007 by celebrated golf course architect Gil Hanse, with PGA Tour player Brad Faxon serving as a consultant. The result is a compelling par-72, 7,241-yard standout that was named by Golf Digest as the 'Best Private Remodel' of 2007.
Built so as to fit seamlessly into the natural New England landscape, lush fairways and Bent grass greens traverse gently rolling hills, with stands of mature trees, rocky mounds and 92 deep bunkers creating a stern challenge and a stunning backdrop in Norton's Great Woods.
Yet while tough enough to challenge the world class field that annually contests the Deutsche Bank Championship, five sets of tees on each hole make the course an enjoyable experience for golfers of all skill levels.
In addition to the golf course, the TPC Boston offers an expansive 10 acre practice facility along with an elegant 34,000 square-foot clubhouse offering all the usual facilities that have come to be expected of golf institutions of quality.
Settled in the Great Woods of Norton, Massachusetts, the TPC Boston offers the understated, traditional feel New Englanders are accustomed to, while also providing the best of modern day amenities and comfort.
