Ipswich, MA

Turner Hill is a vivid entry in a long historical tapestry beginning in 1638 with its namesake sea captain Nathaniel Turner.  Following a procession of land owners, it was Ann and Charles Rice who, in 1899, commissioned the stunning, Elizabethan style mansion that would see itself listed on the National Register of Historic Places and ultimately serve as the clubhouse.  The accompanying golf course meanders through forests and meadows and reflects and celebrates the grandeur of the Rice estate.  From the front entrance to the 18th green there are spectacular views of the mansion and the area’s natural surroundings.  Turner Hill is the only Hurdzan / Fry design where we would concede that the clubhouse is arguably more breathtaking than the course itself.
