Brookline Golf Course at Robert T. Lynch Municipal sits on a parcel of land that was originally designated by the town as a bird sanctuary. Many varieties of birds still call the course home. The course is part of the Putterham property, which also includes Brookline Golf Club. It may be difficult to get into the renowned Brookline Country Club, the owner of Putterham Meadows, but Brookline Golf Club and the Robert T. Lynch Course provide great public options. The Robert T. Lynch Course is smaller than the other public golf course at Putterham, but it is no less challenging. The fairways are seemingly open and flat, but don't be fooled because placement within them is key if you don't want any blocked angles. The tricky greens are often elevated, and some are multi-tiered. The golf course may be short, but it's a formidable test.
