Happy to be playing golf in December in western Mass.. This is a pretty little course with beautiful mountain views. Course conditions were good but not great. Certainly adequate for this time of year in New England. I did find the fairways very divoty (if that's a word) and the sand traps were rather pebbly. Tees were all forward so I didn't get a good feel of playing from full length in prime season. Could not fairly judge the greens as they had just been aerated. Staff was very friendly. Would happily return again next season.

I didn't play that well but the course was in good shape for this time of year. Enjoyed playing here anyway as the view was great and the company was as well. Has to be one of the most beautiful courses around. The only downer was the amount of sand on the greens which made putting difficult.

The Ledges is in the best shape out of any of its competitors. Greens are on the way back after an aeration last week. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens are usually plush. If I had to nitpick, the sand is a bit rocky and the rough is inconsistent, but I'd be reaching. I hate giving it a good review because I don't want the secret to get it how nice it is here.

The course was in overall good shape other than most of the fairways which had a bunch of burnt out spots or just non-maintained care. I understand for the most part that NE is in a drought, but these areas look more like care issues rather than water issues. The fairways need work !

First time playing this course, played 18 in the afternoon with a buddy after we had played 18 holes at another nearby course that morning. Was initially struck by the clubhouse and incredible view of Mt Tom - beautiful! Would be an absolute must play during the fall foliage. The gentleman in the clubhouse was very friendly and professional and the twilight rate for 18 with a cart is an excellent price.

The course was in great shape save for a few of the short par 3 greens, which were fairly beat up, but that is to be expected as they see a ton of tee shots. Excellent variety along the course and a number of opportunities to score if you are a longer hitter. Features a couple par 5s that are reachable in two. Great course design with lots of risk/reward propositions, my favorite being the 4th par 4, a short drivable par 4 if you can carry the ball 250y. It is guarded by water right up to the green, obtainable eagle if you have the guts to go after it, or you can play it safe to the fairway that runs along the water to the right. Lots of uphill and downhill shots, fairway bunkers, fescue, trees, water- excellent variety and characteristics. Not many area courses have this much to offer in the sense of variety and spectacular views. Even the cart drive on a boardwalk style cart path through everglades to access holes 5-8 was very cool. A private country club feel and quality at muni prices. Highly recommended, will absolutely be back soon!

I played the Ledges with the Safari group last Wednesday and enjoyed my round very much. First of all the staff were very accommodating prior to our round. During the round the club pro made the effort to drive around the course and stop and ask how we were doing. The course was in excellent shape. I found the greens to be fast but very consistent. I have played this course many times and never get tired of the fabulous view of Mt Tom , the Holyoke Mountain Range and the Skinner House.
