Public golf favorites?

Couple of sleepers on my list would be:
Crosswinds, Plymouth, MA: This course is actually right next to famed Waverly Oaks but is a bargain compared to its neighboor becuase it is a muni. Same terrain as waverly and some very interesting holes. Dont even think about walking it though.
Atlantic CC, Plymouth, MA: Another course in Plymouth that gets overlooked. Compared to even Crosswinds it does not have the wow factor of elevation changes but a good layout and you really feel like you are out in the woods here.
Little Marion Golf Club, Marion, MA: This is on Point Road about 5 minutes before Kittanset Club. It was actually designed by the same designer as Riveria and Beverly Hills CC in Cali. It is on an old farm, has one par five and a couple of far fours, nine holes. There are still old stone walls in front of greens. Tons of character here and real cheap! Hint...the 2nd hole is almost 45 degrees to the right!
Sandwich Hollows (formerly Round Hill) CC, Sandwich, MA: Best kept secret on the Cape as far as im concerned. This place was a dump until a few years ago when the town bought it. The front and back nine were actually designed by two different people and it is very evident. This actually makes for a fun round of golf. The back nine is definitly more abstract but fun to play all around. The price here is very reasonable and the place is not as crowded as other no so hideen gems such as the Fairgrounds or Hyannis CC.
Cape Cod CC, Falmouth, MA: This place would be number 2 bang for your golfing buck on the Cape. Some real interesting holes on this track but very playable and nice greens to put on for the most part. Not too much of a challenge but again play this course instead of Falmouth CC any day. Less crwoded and better on your wallet.
