3 Fathers Day Ideas

Posted by Susie Callahan on Sat, Jun 20, 2015

Looking for something special to do this Fathers Day? Check out these 3 ideas from Boston.com:

1.Spa Day

"Dad certainly won’t feel intimidated about such grooming when it’s specifically geared toward men. The Emerge Spa, on Newbury Street, offers a number of manly services, including a sports pedicure (50 minutes, $65), gentleman’s facial (60 minutes for $115), and waxing ($25-$80). Appointments can be arranged at 617-437-0006 oremergespasalon.com/services."

 

2. Go Cruising

"Spirit Cruises has a couple of special cruises scheduled for Father’s Day. There is both a lunch cruise (11 a.m.- 2 p.m., $49.90 adults, $29.95 children ages 3-12) and a sunset cruise (6-8:30 p.m., $64.90 adults, $38.95 children ages 3-12), both including buffets, DJs, and views of Boston Harbor. Visit spiritofboston.com/Boston/fathersday to make reservations."

 

3. Brew It Up

"If Dad is a lover of craft brews, it’s no secret there are a great number of local establishments that speak to beer geeks everywhere. Whether it’s Lord Hobo, The Publick House, or a pint at Bukowski’s, Dad is sure to appreciate stepping in for a pint at one of Boston’s local beer bars. Here are some of the best to visit."

Top 5 Golf Courses Around Boston

Posted by Susie Callahan on Thu, Jun 18, 2015

Check out one of these great golf courses, thanks to GolfAdvisor,  around Boston. Perfect for a Father's Day celebration or just to enjoy the great summer weather we've been having. 

1. The International Golf Club Oaks Course

"Located 47 minutes from downtown Boston, this Tom Fazio design opened in 2001 and features five par 5s and par 3s respectively. Golf Digest rates it No. 1 in the state. (Green fees: $129)"

2. Red Tail Golf Club

"About an hour's drive from downtown Boston, Red Tail is a Brian Silva design that hosted the 2009 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship. Boston Magazine calls it the area's best. (Green fees: $89-99)"

3. Granite Links Golf Club 

"It's location, set on high elevation just 20 minutes south of downtown Boston makes for great views of the city skyline, plus the Harbor Islands to the south and east. In 2013, Sports Illustrated named the Tavern Restaurant among the best 19th holes in the world. (Green fees: $125-150)"

4. George Wright Golf Course 

"30 minutes from downtown, this is a 1929 Donald Ross design that was built in 1938 by Walter Irving Johnson, one of Ross’ associates. A lot of men spent a lot of money moving a lot of earth, which was not done at that time. (Green fees: $35 - $45)"

 5. William J. Devine Golf Course at Franklin Park 

"The original 1896 design, 20 minutes from downtown, makes it the second oldest municipal course in America (Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx was built in 1895). The course was later redesigned by Donald Ross. After a recent investment into course conditions, some golfers now say it has closed the gap on George Wright. (Green fees: $35 - $45)"
