Cape Cod National Golf Club (CCN) is an 18-hole championship golf course located in Brewster, Massachusetts. Founded by John & Linda Pfeffer, Cape Cod National opened its doors in 1998. Our Brian Silva designed layout has received numerous accolades and is consistently recognized in state and national rankings. We are a golf-only, privately owned, and managed private club with 250 members and a significant waiting list. However, member satisfaction is high, with nearly no resignations in the past two years.
Our Greens are constructed to USGA specifications and planted with L-93. Over the past few years, our greens have been aggressively over-seeded with new bentgrass varieties to improve playability further. The Tee boxes and Fairways are a blend of creeping bentgrass, colonial bentgrass, and chewings fescue. Our goal is to provide our membership a firm-fast golf course they have come to expect.
Constant improvement is a cornerstone of our culture at Cape Cod National. Over the years, the club has invested heavily in maintenance equipment to ensure that we have the resources to provide the members the playing conditions they have come to demand. Our last three Lead Assistants moved on to Head Superintendent Positions, with the most recent one securing a head position in the spring of 2021.
