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.

Cold Springs Country Club is unique in that it has 6 par 3’s... Not that they are easy but because they are so varied and different... this course is short by most standards but plays long on the par 5’s ... the greens are fast and are undulating..

The course had someone greet us and get our clubs to the appropriate cart.. this is a nice feature and the staff was very friendly...

The Safari Club enjoyed the day... it is a pretty good value for your dollar!

Not one negative thing to say about Cold Springs, The minute I arrived I felt welcomed, a cart pulled up to me to grab my bag and bring it to my assigned cart, love that! No lines when checking in 2 men at the counter, great service!! The course was in great shape, layout is not boring and the views there are beautiful from several holes. We had a blast! Looking forward to next year.

Every time I’ve played Cold Spring Country Club I’ve had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. From the first moment I arrived to the last putt, the staff at the course go above and beyond the expectations. Throw in a challenging course and sunny day, it doesn’t get much better than Cold Spring Country Club.

Due to a rotator cuff surgery in December of 2016, I have not played much, but my golf partner and I decided to give Cold Springs a try. Great decision!

Beautiful fall day, teeing off at noon. I played this course once a couple of years ago, so I gave layout info to my buddy who was playing for the first time. He kept remarking how pretty the course was and the unique layout. Not a long track at 5430 yards (white tees), but it still gives you a good challenge. We are 16-18 handicappers, so some of the longer par 4's were difficult getting to the green in regulation. If you accept your limits as a golfer and enjoy the course, as it winds through the hills in Belchertown, you can't help but it enjoy this course. When you are standing on some of the elevated parts of the course, the visits are unique for a Western Mass course. I am sure it is very picturesque, when the fall colors are in full bloom. The visuals aside, the course is in nice shape and it reminds me a bit of The Ledges, in South Hadley. (well kept greens / fairways) Some fairways are wide and foregiving, like Ledges, however there is more woods when you stray too far from the fairways. Additionally, the bar and restaurant areas are upscale, with attentive servers. Enjoy a fall golf day at Cold Springs.....you WILL ENJOY!!!
