Superb!

The Ranch will always be my favorite local golf course. There is nothing like it in Western Massachusetts. I wish I could afford to play there more often, but I only go there on special occasions like birthdays. I played Sunday with my sons and one of my son’s girlfriend, and we had a fantastic outing from our greeting at the club drop to our lunch at the 19th hole. The Ranch is always a magical day!

Disappointed

I always try to play The Ranch, once or twice, a year.

The weather, rain and humidity, have not been kind to courses. The greens were in horrible shape and I am sure most of it is due to the weather. But they were also pretty beat up. Plus it was cart paths only so you had to do a lot of walking and a few times I had to carry my bag because I didnt know what yardage I would have for my next shot.

Great course in the Hartford Springfield area

This course was a very fair layout with wide fairways. Conditions were extremely good. Greens leaned toward the fast side. I was a single on a Hot Deal rate. Others I played with paid in the $90's. I recommend this course.

Great Challenge from the tips

The Ranch is such a great course. The fescue forces you to be accurate off the tee, and from the tips the almost 7200 yards is one of the prettiest and most fun challenges you'll have in New England. The greens were perfect, the only tough thing about the Ranch is there are a handful of blind drives that are much less intimidating once you play the holes a couple times.

Great day

I got to play as a single on a beautiful day. This is one of my annual “must play” courses. It’s a beautiful setting. The layout is diverse and challenging, but also fair. Lots of elevation changes, so club wisely. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Even the refreshment cart lady was super. Highly recommend you give this course a try if you haven’t yet. My reason for not giving the conditions 5 stars is there are tons of rocks in the traps. Hopefully they’ll get that resolved, because otherwise it’s great.

Best public course in MA, hands down!

Best layout, impeccable condition, challenging but fair 18 holes. Scenic vistas, simply a treat and a must play. The Ranch is #1 bar none.
