If you don’t have a specific player in mind, or have a handful in mind to watch, Dedham Country and Polo Club PGA Director of Golf, Brad McCluski gives his tips on where to watch from.

“A great spot to watch is right above the 18th green, you can see the first tee, 18th green. Head on out and watch the 15th hole and 6 tee box, as well as between the 12th hole and 7th hole are both very good viewing areas for spectators” said McCluski.

Spectators can follow hole-by-hole, and are welcome to the facilities for rest or restrooms as they are available on the course.
