Sunrise on the Brewster Flats Cape Cod Bay

Sunrise on the Brewster Flats

Brewster lies on the north side of Cape Cod, along Cape Cod Bay, with the Town of Harwich bordering it to the south. Nearly tucked into the crook of the arm of Cape Cod, the bayside waters are calm and the beaches picturesque. Low tide reveals tidal flats nearly as far as the eye can see, great for long walks and beach treasure hunting.

In Brewster, as throughout Cape Cod, many homes enjoy deeded rights to private and association beaches as well as public beach access.

The Captains Golf Course 1000 Freemans Way, Brewster, MA 02631 (508) 896-1716

The Town of Brewster hosts two exceptional 18-hole championship layouts: the Port and the Starboard courses.

    The Starboard

    Gently sloping with tree-lined fairways, the Starboard is the better choice of the two Brewster golf courses for higher handicapped golfers.

    The Port

    Well-bunkered greens, a couple of water holes and a little additional length makes the Port a more challenging course than the Starboard.
