|The Front Nine: Maine to New Jersey|

• Plymouth's Atlantic Country Club Phone: (508) 888-6644 offers an 18-hole, 6,728-yard, par-72 course designed by Cornish, Silva, & Mungea. The par threes are long and there are no easy lies. Bring your best iron game to this course. Greens fees for Monday through Thursday are $40 and Friday through Sunday are $52. Carts are $28.
Local marinas include Brewers Plymouth Phone: (508) 746-4500, Green Harbor Phone: (781) 837-1181, and Compass Rose Phone: (781) 837-6591.
• Of course you've made your plans to visit Martha's Vineyard well in advance--a year at least--and in doing so have also scheduled your tee time at the Farm Neck Golf Club Phone: (508) 693-3057. It was the course of choice of Bill (as in Clinton) when he was visiting, and for good reason. The ocean views are nothing less than spectacular, and the Cornish & Robinson-designed course, a 6,807-yard par-72, is as challenging as it looks. Greens fees from May 11 to June 21 are $70 and $125 from June 22 to Sept 16. Carts are $26.
Local marinas include Oak Bluffs Phone: (508) 693-4355, The Harborside Inn Phone: (508) 627-4321, and Coastwise Phone: (508) 693-3854.
