When it came time to book an end-of-summer vacation for the family, my wife and I settled on Cape Cod. A Boston native, she was interested in beaches and pools and ice cream for our 2-year-old son, and a change of scenery for our youngest son, who is just 3 months old. I was interested in all of that too, but I also wanted an easily accessible golf course where I could get in early rounds and be back in time to spend the day with the family unit.
We researched several options and settled on Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster, Mass. It had everything we needed -- a room with a kitchen, indoor and outdoor pools, beach access and, oh yeah, a golf course.
