History

A place designed for the love of golf and the joy of friends

Nothing else speaks to the welcoming and down-to-earth atmosphere of Hatherly Country Club quite like its humble beginnings.

Our course was designed by golf enthusiasts with a passion for the game, a desire to master its challenges, and a commitment to camaraderie. The identities of the original course designers were not recorded, but we do know that Hatherly Country Club was founded by a few prominent members of the North Scituate Beach Improvement Association.

Their goal? To create something enjoyable, beautiful, and inviting out of the many acres of scenic, wild terrain located between the western edge of the North Scituate Beach neighborhood and the salt marshes and estuaries at the south entrance to Cohasset Harbor. And so Hatherly Country Club was launched with the building of a few golf holes on a truly striking coastal property.

More than 100 years later, Hatherly Country Club has seen several redesigns, including those by noted golf course architects Sam Mitchell and Brian Silva. Yet it has always remained true to its beginnings and maintained its reputation as a friendly country club with a challenging, yet playable, course where golfers of all abilities can gather, enhance their skills, mingle with others, and truly enjoy their time on the links.
