Skyline Country Club
Situated in the heart of the beautiful Berkshires, Skyline Country Club offers golfers a setting unlike any other. With views that span the surrounding mountains and stretch to the Pontoosuc Lake, the golf course is New England scenery at its best. Besides just the stunning location, the golf course presents quite a challenge. You'll face a handful of blind shots as well as tricky uphill and downhill holes. The signature hole is the par-3 fifth. You'll find yourself stuck in a wooded ravine if you're too far left on this scenic, downhill hole but too far right and you'll be up on a ledge with a 15-foot drop to the green. Another tough hole follows, but it's less daunting than it appears. Skyline Country Club's par-4 sixth starts with a blind shot but the trees serve as a marker for your drive. With a good first shot, you could possibly make it onto the green in two.

Played the course a few years ago so was almost like a new course. Like the change of elevations on different holes, uphill and down. Fairways are reasonably wide. Greens are a bit rough. Warmed up to low 70's and one the morning wind died down was a great round.
This course has some very challenging holes. The tee boxes and fairways are in good shape. The greens are in very poor condition. All in all for the money nice course to play for practicing your irons.
For the price, the course was great!
The greens and tee boxes could use care. The cart paths were very bumpy but the fairways were in good shape. For the price and scenery, i would go back again.
Worse than the course conditions the pro informed me that golfnow charged almost $20 per player more than if I had contacted the course directly. Issue us primarily with golfnow. Not the course. Apparently this has been brought forward as an issue and has not been resolved. May be time to stop using gokfnow..
I had same issue, still waiting for the adjustment I was promised
Skyline Country Club
Golf now charged me and my friend $50 for 18 and a cart 2x. So that’s a problem off the bat and then when we showed up to the course the pro told us it’s $33 for 18 and a cart. Golfnow dipped us off. Oh and it was supposed to be a “hot deal” that’s bs
Staff is very friendly. Course set up was nice and you need to keep the ball in the middle. Take the staff's pre Rd talk to note. Couple blind shots, which could break your Rd. Greens have spots from the summer heat but overall decent rolls.
You get what you pay for
We were hopeful but.... The person who checked us in was unfriendly and hostile. Golf cart was dirty, had cobwebs, backfired while driving and was somewhat scary. The seat was torn and had duck tape that was peeling up. The paths were in poor condition with many holes you had to drive around. The tee boxes were not level and full of weeds. The greens were full of brown spots with very little grass. Overall the course was run down and in terrible condition.
Many of the holes had blind spots and should have had mirrors and bells to make them safer. There was sufficient signage which made it pretty easy to navigate. Some of the holes had beautiful views. The course itself was challenging and with a sufficient financial investment would receive a much better rating.
Lot's of Fun
This isn't a fancy course. It won't look like a Troon course.
However, it is very fun and challenging. Lots of up and down hills. A few blind greens and some of the best views of
the Berkshires. It''s well maintained and an incredible value.
If you're playing the Berkshires, consider Skyline before paying more elsewhere.
Great place to play for the money
Great day for golf and the staff was very friendly. Arguably one of the best views in the Berkshires. Course was challenging on almost every hole. Couple greens that need a little work but overall really good shape.
If hot deal is free do not take it! Staff was unfriendly and complained immediately about be booking my tee time thru golf now. Course was u playable with golf cart all four wheels underwater on the second hole I couldn’t move it. After pushing it out and I was covered in mud and water went back to clubhouse and asked for refund again he told me to take it up with golf now and was very rude. Golf now took care of me but you should not ever play this course for any reason!!
The course is in terrible condition, greens are awful and the course is poorly maintained. Worst I’ve ever seen!!
good value, needs work
Picturesque course, some challenging holes. A few greens and tees need work.
only the price was right
We were rudely greeted when we checked in by the guy in the pro shop who complained that the course gets no income when booked through GolfNow, as if GolfNow forced them to use their services.
The cart paths are treacherous; one bridge is a major accident to happen on the back 9. Fairways on the front 9 are close to each other so watch out for balls coming at you from holes on either side. Very few yardage markers so be sure to use your own GPS for distances. Lots of blind shots.
Beautiful vistas, bumpy cart paths
The course has some beautiful vistas, but could be maintained much better. The cart paths are horrible and, the sand traps mostly do not contain sand. The greens have a few bare spots, but in general are pretty decent, as are the fairways. There are a few holes with no view of the hole from the tee, and little guidance from the club as to how to play them. They make an excellent hot dog at the turn.
Panoramic Views of the Berkshires + Some Golf
The huge panoramic views of beautiful western Mass were the most noteworthy aspect of this course. Hole layouts were creative and the greens were in good condition. Overall, a solid course.
Worth a try.
As I drove up, the first scene was trash on the ground around the dumpster. That defined the maintenance of the facility. Holes and paths near the clubhouse look good. As you get to other holes, some greens are part bare and cart paths need maintenance. Don't get close to another cart as you will be covered with dirt. One cart path (10 or 11?) was washed out and dangerous with no warning sign. Otherwise, it was hilly and challenging. Worth trying. And as other reviews said, the pro has to point out you bought your round through Golf Now. Actually, I'm glad I did as I wouldn't want to pay full price for this course.
