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.

Love cold spring

Best public course in the area … challenging and beautiful… if someone tells you they hate this place it’s because they can’t handle real golf and they had a bad round … losers always blame something others than themselves

Great Condition

Always been nice, but in probably the best condition I've ever seen it. Greens were great, new sand in the traps (happy to report I missed them all), fairways nice. Played in under 4 hours. You won't be disappointed.

Great Unique Course

Not too many courses I play have 6 par 3s and 5 par 5s. You also start off with a downhill par 3. Lots of elevation changes and dog legs. Tough walk if you go that route. Played late afternoon on a Saturday and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Have not been out to CSCC in a few years but I was glad to see the course conditions are still excellent. Very slick greens so stay below the hole if you can. Didn’t use the restaurant after the round but we could here some live music while playing 18 as the sun set. We will be back.
