Fall is the perfect time to visit The Hotchkiss School Golf Course in Lakeville. This tucked-away nine-hole gem was designed by Seth Raynor and winds through the campus of the prestigious boarding school. A number of approach shots play to elevated greens, while the third hole is a blind drive with a hidden front bunker. This is a no-frills course that offers an enjoyable, relaxing round of golf.
