Golf

Although you'll need to know someone who knows someone who is

someone to play at Chestnut Hill's Country Club, one of the nation's top-rated private courses, anyone can use the public courses in Boston, which are among the best in the country.

William J. Devine Golf Course at Franklin Park.

Donald Ross crafted the 6,009-yard, par-70 William J. Devine Golf Course at Franklin Park

in the early 1896. It's open year-round, weather permitting. Greens fees without a cart are $23 for 9 holes and $38 for 18 holes on weekdays, and $27 and $45, respectively, on weekends. (You can play 9 holes only after 1 pm on weekends.) Charges for a golf cart tend to run about $11 to $20 more. Club rentals run $11 for 9 holes and $20 for 18 holes. The course is part of delightful Franklin Park, which also has picnic facilities and jogging courses. Festivals and other outdoor activities take place all year. 1 Circuit Dr., Dorchester, Boston, MA, 02121. Tel. 617/265-4084.

George Wright Golf Course.

The hilly George Wright Golf Course is more challenging than the other Donald Ross-designed course at Franklin Park. The par-70, 6,096-yard course is open for the season starting in April each year. Weekend 18-hole greens fees are $45 ($37 for residents); weekday fees are $38 ($33 for residents). Tee times are necessary on weekends. 420 West St., Hyde Park, Boston, MA, 02136. Tel. 617/364-2300.

1 The Equinox
The Equinox
3567 Main St.
Manchester, VT 05254

Though this multi-building property is the geographic center and historic heart of Manchester Village, and though it has been the

fancy hotel in town—in the state—since the 18th century, the Equinox had lost its luster in the past decade. That all changed in 2008, however, thanks to a complete renovation that's elevated the property, finally, to the lofty tier befitting its white columns. Rooms now have huge flat-screen TVs, leather chairs, contemporary carpets, and two-tone cream wallpaper, new plush-top mattresses, and marble bathrooms with granite sinks and Molton Brown toiletries. If you crave colonial, the Equinox bought the pink 1811 House across the street, which had been an independent B&B and is one of New England's most heart-grabbing properties. If you've got big bucks, ask for a room in the Charles Orvis Inn, which has a billiard room, hot tubs, and private porches. The spa is the best in southern Vermont, you can take falconry lessons, the resort's golf course is across the street, and there's a new wine bar in addition to the good restaurant.

Pros:

heart-of-town location, full-service hotel, great golf and spa.

Cons:

big-hotel feeling, overrun by NewYorkers on weekends. www.equinoxresort.com. 154 rooms, 29 suites. In-room: kitchen (some), Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurants, bar, golf course, pool, tennis courts, spa. Credit cards accepted.

2 Grand Summit Hotel
Grand Summit Hotel

West Dover, VT 05356

The 200-room base lodge at Mount Snow will be an easy choice for skiers who don't care about anything but getting on the slopes as quickly as possible. Ski-in ski-out ease is the main sell and package deals can make the lodging cheap. The lobby has the look of a traditional ski lodge, with a big center fireplace, but the overall feel is that of an efficient, new hotel. Rooms are clean and fairly basic. A big outdoor heated pool sits beside two hot tubs at the base of the slopes. In summer guests enjoy the property golf and tennis courts. Pros:

easy ski access; clean, modern property.

Cons:

somewhat bland decor in rooms. www.mountsnow.com/grandsummit.html. 104 rooms, 96 suites. In-room: kitchen (some), Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurants, bar, golf course, pool, tennis courts, gym, spa, children's programs, business center. Credit cards accepted.

3 Inn at Water's Edge
Inn at Water's Edge
45 Kingdom Rd.
Ludlow, VT 05149

Want to ski but resent the busy Ludlow and Okemo scene? You'll find a happy middle ground at this inn 10 mi north of town.

The centerpiece of the relaxed common areas is a huge 1850 English bar, with comfortable banquettes, a big double sided fireplace, and a billiards table. Rooms are standard Victorian B&B affairs, clean and nice, but uninspiring compared to the grounds and setting. While most guests come for skiing, golf and spa packages are also available, and in summer the inn's dock has two canoes and a small sailboat on charming Echo Lake. Pros:

bucolic setting on a lakefront; interesting, big house.

Cons:

ordinary rooms. www.innatwatersedge.com. 9 rooms, 2 suites. In-room: no TV, Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurant, bar, water sports, business center, some age restrictions. Credit cards accepted. Rate includes: Breakfast, Some meals.
