The Ledges Golf Club in South Hadley is tucked away in the Pioneer Valley, an area of western Massachusetts known for its lush, rolling hills. It is a favorite amongst locals since it is one of the best values in the region. The course enjoys scenic views that stretch to Mt. Tom and the Holyoke Range. It is on the shorter side at just over 6,500 yards from the back tees, but the dramatic changes in elevation make it seem much longer. Most of the greens are raised with steeply sloped sides, making accuracy essential since missing them by even just a few feet will result in a serious penalty. The golf course has a heavily wooded front nine that seamlessly transitions into a more open back nine featuring links-style holes. The Ledges is a shotmaker's course that offers several interesting risk-reward opportunities.

First Time Playing

Great features , helpful and friendly staff.

The course was in good conditions they just aerated the greens and the rough wasn't overgrown as I have seen at other courses. The pace of play what's good and the members were very friendly. Staff was very helpful and very friendly as well I would recommend playing here to all my friends and family me and even if they're not Avid golfers in the fall it is a beautiful course just due to the foliage that us new englanders are spoiled with.

Wonderful Course

Course is particularly beautiful in October !

Unfortunately, today’s pace of play was SLOW! !!

Quit after 9 holes due to backup on back nine.

Great Golf Day

Played Ledges on Saturday with three others. Teed off at 7:30 and were done at 10:30 so pace of play was excellent. Front nine had a lot of doglegs. Some holes were long par 4s but then others were very short. Greens were quick. Overall a challenging course.

Just do it

Absolutely gorgeous course with interesting, challenging holes. Played it when I used to work in Brattleboro. Had the opportunity to play it with the Safari. Can't wait to play it again in foliage season. It will be spectacular!

Hidden Gem

I play this course a few times every year and always enjoy it a lot. It's always in nice shape and the layout is very good. It's challenging, but not crazy.

Good place but

It’s a nice corse but you if you walk you have to be a billy goat to navigate the hills and long walks between tee so you need a cart which makes it expensive. They also have gps on the cart but it didn’t work the only thing that did work was the alarm on the cart that annoyingly goes off all the time even though we weren’t near a green or tee box.

great greens. good layout

Good course set-up for all abilities. Greens were fast and true. Staff very welcoming. Only downside was being told we'd have to pay extra to use GPS system on carts?! Will definitely play here again.
