About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 71
Length 6521 yards
Slope 130
Rating 71.7

Cold Spring Country Club is situated halfway between Springfield and Worcester. Opened in 2010 in an effort to bring world class golf to western Massachusetts, the club has since garnered a local following. The par-71 layout is unique in that it has six par 3s and five par 5s. There are also some par 4s in the 450-yard range. The 6,521-yard length indicated on the scorecard can be deceiving since it feels much longer when you're playing it. The golf course has plenty of variety, including dogleg lefts, doglegs rights, short holes, and long holes. Thanks to its mountaintop locale, Cold Spring C.C. offers stunning views that are as diverse as the holes. The vistas from the elevated tees and greens stretch to the Berkshires, Connecticut, and Vermont. From the golf course's highest tee box on the par-3 10th, you'll have a panoramic view of central Massachusetts.

9’ holes open

Only 9 holes open so they did a poor job of scheduling tee times as the round took hours. The golf pro was less than friendly. The starter was great as always. Paid for 18 only played 9
Disappointing.

Losing the Course

Sad to see over the years the decline in this course. Started from a excellent venue to a course in fair conditions. Tee boxes are burnt out and it was not the best conditions. Disappointed to say the least. At least the food in the clubhouse is always great!

Always an Enjoyable Time

Can't beat four hour round on Sunday morning at a good Hot Deal rate. Course was in very good condition except for sand traps, which looked washed out due to heavy rains the day before. It's a bit out of the way but worth the visit for a great golf experience.

Good experience with Hot Deal.

Course was in average condition. Tee boxes need to be leveled, fairways were spotty and greens consistent but need some work. Would not pay more than the "Hot Deal" to play here.
