Birdie G Website Reviews the South Shore Country Club Golf Course
The course retains its classic look today but with many enhanced features. For most of its existence, South Shore was a private club serving the region's upper crust, but in the 1980s, the expansive land was offered to the town of Hingham by the owners, who went on to run it as a public course. After a period of neglect due to declining revenues, the town brought in new management and a Renaissance of sorts has taken place during the last decade.

In addition to golf, the club boasts top-notch swimming and dining facilities, as well as a 10-lane candlepin bowling alley.
