The Tournament Players Club of Boston is a Private 18 hole golf course located in Norton, Massachusetts.
The Tournament Players Club of Boston opened in 2002. The course was a signature Arnold Palmer Design Course. TPC Boston's award-winning layout was re-designed in 2007 by Gil Hanse, with PGA TOUR player Brad Faxon serving as a consultant. The result is a compelling par-72, 7,241-yard delight, named by Golf Digest the "Best Private Remodel of 2007."
Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 7,241 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,172 yards.
Faxon and Hanse's new-and-improved layout received mostly positive reviews, primarily because of its daring ideas. In an era when most Tour courses are being lengthened, TPC Boston was shortened by 200 yards.
The 4th hole, which had been a doglegged, 425-yard par-4, was converted into a drivable (298 yards) two-shotter. With a nod to Pine Valley and its Hell's Half Acre (the gaping waste bunker on No. 7), a massive cross bunker was added to the par-4 17th at TPC Boston.
On the par-3 16th the green was snuggled up against a pond, and several pot bunkers were sprinkled on the fairway of the par-5 18th.
The revised 4th may have become the TPC's signature hole during the opening round of the 2007 Deutsche Bank, when Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, playing in the same group, made a 6 and a 2 there, respectively.

The Players Club is a tough but challenging layout, a real test of skill.
