The course itself is not overly challenging but offers plenty of opportunities to foul up your score. There are three par 3s, four par 4s and two par 5s.
Getting to the course is extremely easy from Harvard Square. Just take bus # 74 from Harvard Station (65 cents for a one way ride) and get off at the Huron Towers stop (the bus continues to Belmont Center). The golf course is right on Huron Ave and borders the Fresh Pond reservoir.
Here is the schedule for bus #74:
Outbound from Harvard Square: 7:11, 8:07, 9:05, 10:30 and 11:30 a.m., and 1, 2:20, 3:20, 4:15 and 6:05 p.m.
Incoming from Belmont Center: 12:25, 1:55, 2:50, 3:50, 4:40, 5:40 and 6:30 p.m.
And one word of advice if you decide to play: remember that golf is just a game and you're out there to enjoy yourself. It will save you an ulcer by the time you are 30.
