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.

Golfing in November!

Another perfect day for golfing. The course was in good shape however the greens were aerated and the putting was a little tough. Any time you can golf in November is a plus.

Great view course.

The view on the 1,10,18 tee is stunning. The course is in good shape, still recovering from aeration on greens, fairways are good.
Some areas are pretty wet, drainage issues , cart path only slows things down a bit.
Overall in good shape, a bit out of the way but worth the drive.

Carpet fairways with fast Greens

I have to admit when a course is in good shape. Hitting off the fairway was like hitting off a private course. The greens was so fast that I birdied 4 of 9 attempts... Thank you for true roll! It was a 40 minute ride, but I will go back again.

Great course great price

Short yet challenging, course was in beautiful shape, greens were still in perfect shape. Little wet so ball could plug in fairway for high ball flights like mine. Other then the slightly over the top Covid-19 measures, I’ll be back again soon

September 12, 2020

An 11:50 time with plans to warm up on the range and practice greens led to a 10AM departure for us two. The early morning was for the first time much cooler than it had been in recent weeks, but the extra layers turned out to be wholly unnecessary as we tee'd off into the most spectacular day on display from the views at Ledges Golf Course. What a great place to visualize hitting shots into sunlit clouds!
This course offers players the opportunity to work every shot in the bag. And a word to the wise: after rain days, probably best to leave the low bounce wedges at home. They won''t help if you happen to be short of one of the many elevated greens. But don't get too down if you do dig in. Just look up and out and let any of Ledge's views take your cares away.
Hit 'em long and shaped!
