Our classically-designed, 18-hole Donald Ross championship golf course, which boasts a slope of 130 and a par 70 layout, is the centerpiece of the property. The well known Ross concept of architecture is still as evident today as it was in the early part of the 20th century.


There are many ways one could describe a family, but they all have one common theme: caring. Kernwood offers a place where your family can grow together. From our Junior Programs to our Movie Nights by the pool, to the Fine Dining and Wine Pairing events in the Main Dining Room, there is something here to suit each individual, as we invite your family to become part of ours.


With our exciting calendar of member events, programs for children, opportunities for tournament play, and our exceptional focus on member services, it's no wonder the Boston Globe recently dubbed Kernwood, 'A Club to Call Home'.
