Another 36-hole facility is in Brewster on Cape Cod. Its original 18 holes opened in 1985, and the Brian Silva design was named that years best new public course in the country by Golf Digest. The second course was added in 1999.
One of the most amazing things was the way Brian Silva blended the two courses to create the 36 holes, said Mark OBrien, director of golf. He took 10 of the older holes and eight of the new ones to make the Starboard Course, and 10 new holes and eight old ones to make the Port Course.
The Captains has hosted the New England Intercollegiate event, one of the oldest and largest college tournaments in the United States, for the past eight years. It has also hosted several professional mini-tour events, and as the original holes hit the quarter-century mark, The Captains shows little sign of slippage.
