Check out these attractions, activities, and delicious spots — there’s something any member of your group will love.


1. Cape Cod Baseball League: Catch a Game

Head out to the field to enjoy a day of sports, fun food, and some fresh air at a Cape Cod Baseball League game. With the Harwich Mariners field only a 5-minute car ride away from Wychmere Beach Club, it’s the perfect family-friendly activity to feel even more part of the community.

At the game, try out some fun, novelty dishes like burgers served on jelly donuts. For those less adventurous, they’ve also got your traditional game favorites like hot dogs and nachos.

2. Golfing, Kayaking, and Sportfishing

Some of Harwich’s best golfing, kayaking, and sportfishing are all in close proximity to Wychmere.


If you’re craving some tee time, check out Cranberry Valley Golf Course in Harwich, which offers a “championship-layout golf course designed by noted architects Geoffrey Cornish and William Robinson. It was rated ‘Excellent’ by Zagat Golf Guide, given ‘4 Stars’ by Golf Digest, and voted as ‘Best of Cape Cod’ 2011. 

Its driving range, bunker and practice area were redesigned by Mark Mungeum and is touted as the best practice area on Cape.” 

Whether you and your friends want to experience the course yourself, or make it a fun day with the kids at the driving range, Cranberry Valley is worth visiting if you’re interested in golf during your stay, and it’s less than a 10-minute drive from our Club! 

Kayaking & Water Activities

If water over land is more your style, make a reservation with Cape Cod Waterways in Dennis, which operates on both Swan Pond River and Bass River Park, in the heart of Cape Cod. Their main location, Swan Pond River, is only about 10 minutes from Wychmere: 

“Located right on the banks of the Swan Pond River Cape Cod, Waterways boat rentals offer four different boat models to choose from: kayak, stand up paddle board, canoe, and pedal boat rentals. The Kayaks are user-friendly and available in single and two person models. [They] also offer a ‘family kayak’ that can fit two adults and two toddlers.”


Get the full Cape Cod experience by heading out to the ocean and spending the day fishing. Do it like an expert with Jail Break Fishing Charters in Harwich. Hop aboard their 42” Duffy Cape Cod charter fishing boat to catch the migrating schools of striped bass and bluefish, which will surely keep you busy the whole ride.

For a more family-friendly or child-oriented fishing activity, take a short trip over to Cap’n Kids Fishing Adventure in Harwich. It’s only a 2-minute drive from Wychmere, or a 15-minute walk! Cap’n Kids offers two-hour trips that are specifically designed for kids. They provide the equipment, the bait, and an experienced crew to guide and educate them.

2. Devil’s Purse Brewing Company – Dennis

The outdoor area at Devil’s Purse Brewing Company in Dennis is great for yard games, with cornhole boards placed between picnic bench seating. “The indoor area is cozy, with a few table tops, but most of the room is reserved for the brewing operations.”
