Rating 72.7

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.

LUSH and beautiful!!

This course is in fantastic condition right now. A little spongy in spots and it’s currently cart-path-only (and should be right now with the amount of rain we’ve seen).
Staff was super friendly and accommodating also (this has not always been the case in the past.)

Aerated greens no discount

Should have been informed that the greens were aerated. Paying full price was a rip off. Would recommend waiting a bit before playing there let greens fill out.

Best fairways in western Mass

The fairway grass at Ledges is superior to any course in western mass. The grass is so fluffy. You never get a bad lie, and it’s so easy to hit off of.

This a great course to play. They recently got new golf carts that have gps units in them that shows the layout of the hole you are playing, and they also play music. With all the rain some spots are a little soggy but overall a great fun course.

Nice layout

Many blind shot holes. The 9th hole is tuff to know when the group in front of you have cleared the landing area. I know first hand because I was hit with a ball. They need a bell or something to prevent that kind of thing from happen again.
