Course Description     

 

The course lies on rolling terrain, with several holes featuring considerable elevation changes. The course is relatively short, with a premium being placed on accuracy off the tee. The greens are generally small, and thus scoring can be largely dependent upon short game abilities, specifically putting, chipping and pitching. Several holes, most notably the 8th hole tee box, feature an excellent view of Mount Greylock, the highest point in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Hole 1

 A short par 4, with a slight dogleg right, with out of bounds on the right hand side. The dogleg is accentuated by a tall fence on the right side of the tee box, which blocks any attempt to drive directly to the green. However, a well placed tee shot which gently moves from left to right will result in a short second shot to a green which is protected by two bunkers short of the green.

Hole 2

 A straight par 4, with a public road which crosses through the hole approximately 140 yards from the green. Out of bounds lines the right side of the hole. The land area off the tee is sloped significantly from the right to left.

Hole 3

 A downhill par 3, which plays considerably less than the yardage on the card.

Hole 4

A par 4 dogleg right. The green is significantly elevated in comparison to the fairway.

Hole 5

 A an uphill par 3.

Hole 6

A straight par 4, with out of bounds left.

Hole 7

 A unique par 4, with out of bounds left. The landing area off the tee is right in the middle of an uphill slope, and a tee shot must be very well struck to reach the top of the hill. The approach shot is to a green which drops off steeply on the left hand side.

Hole 8

A downhill par 4, and the longest hole on the course with a gorgeous view.

Hole 9

A short uphill par 4. The green is protected by a bunker short of the putting surface, and out of bounds long.
