The Ledges Golf Club in South Hadley is tucked away in the Pioneer Valley, an area of western Massachusetts known for its lush, rolling hills. It is a favorite amongst locals since it is one of the best values in the region. The course enjoys scenic views that stretch to Mt. Tom and the Holyoke Range. It is on the shorter side at just over 6,500 yards from the back tees, but the dramatic changes in elevation make it seem much longer. Most of the greens are raised with steeply sloped sides, making accuracy essential since missing them by even just a few feet will result in a serious penalty. The golf course has a heavily wooded front nine that seamlessly transitions into a more open back nine featuring links-style holes. The Ledges is a shotmaker's course that offers several interesting risk-reward opportunities.

Ledges Always Good

Always worth the trip from Central Mass. to play Ledges. Fairways lush despite drought and greens in good shape. Play slowed down on back nine, but to be expected on a Saturday.

Nice day

Ledges is always in good shape and the course is a fun challenge. It's not overly long but plenty of bunkers still make a challenge. Staff is nice and we got around in 4:15 which is acceptable for a Saturday at 10a. Play here a couple of times a season and will continue to play.

Almost 5 stars

Course was in great condition. The only problem was the pace, they need someone to hurry people along. My group and 5 others got stuck behind someone and they definitely needed a nudge. Otherwise, great course for the $40 we paid to play.

Great golf course with unique holes and risk-reward shots

The Ledges is a unique layout. It winds through forests and lakes. There are some short Par4 holes that are risk-reward drives usually over or near water. I played as a single and when I play it again, I will have a better idea where to aim my drives since there are sloping fairways right or left. Also, I didn't get a good feel for the speed and breaks of the greens (which held pretty well). I highly recommend the Ledges

Great course/ fair players

The course was great and maintained very well and staff was great, I will keep coming back. Got pushed the entire time by a group of players who constantly hit balls at us when we were still hitting.
