About

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

Wonderful course and staff

Always a good time at Cold Spring. The course wasn’t crowded, and I’d have given a better score for pace of play, but the one slow foursome on the course was right in front of us. They have a very cordial, welcoming crew, from cart boys to bar and wait staff. $40 for greens fees and cart - a bargain.

Unique layout

I had a tee time of 11:30 and it was "clear sailing" around the course, with a cart. I saw very little players on the course, so I was not being pushed to move along on each hole. The greens were in good shape with a moderate roll spead. The fairways were a bit banged up and dry, due in large part to the heat and lack of rain. I enjoy playing at Cold Springs because it is a track that has elevation changes with sweeping views of Belchertown and Palmer. Just enough dog legs to show you variety in the holes. The parr three and four holes are not terribly challenging, from the Senior Tee boxes, but enjoyable with sand traps that have white, fine sand that is fun to hit out of. (Unlike the rubble in muni courses) The club house and restaurant is perched up on a hill, overlooking part of the course. That is unique and visually a plus, for your golfing experience. The staff and bar tender were all friendly and professional. If you haven't played Cold Springs CC, you should give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

Going down hill

They are letting the course deteriorate, Tee boxes were a mess, clover in the fairways , everything was dry, and a lot of moths were flying around.

Decent price, less than decent conditions

The staff at the bag drop, clubhouse and 19th hole were all fantastic. The greens were in good shape and rolled well. The bunkers were excellent. The first tee box had almost no grass, almost bare. The rough was full of clover and wild flowers. The fairways were like closely mown rough. . Overall conditions were decent. Lots of poison ivy to look out for on the edges of play.
