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.

We live 55 minutes away and love playing Cold Springs. Well maintained, friendly, challenging, an overall good time. I can’t wait until the restaurant and beverage cart are online and serving.

Good early New England spring conditions

Played the course several times already at the start of this golf season. Course was in very good shape although some areas are already starting to get dry so that teeing areas were getting baked. Pace of play remains an issue and we never see a ranger on the course urging players to keep pace. Friendly staff and interesting course with reasonable prices so we will continue to make the course one of our "regulars" in our rotation of courses to play in the area.

Worst Experience in 25+ years playing golf

Booked a tee time several days in advance, checked in and was sent to the 1st tee. I was there on time and at the tee before my tee time. The threesome I was supposed to be paired up with was already on the 1st green as a foursome. The guy in the shop who sold my spot minutes before and the starter claimed to have no idea where the 4th came from. The starter then went on about the pace of play as if I was going to just go home - no golf and out $40. I was then asked to play as a single on a Saturday behind the group that was booked after mine. Because THEY didn’t want to wait? No thanks and never again.

That you mention pace of play and not the fact that you gave away my spot says a lot. And made me wait for the group booked after me?

Walked

Not for Walkers

The course layout and terrain are in themselves interesting and challenging, but this is a course very much designed for golf carts -- distance from green to the next tee is often as long or longer than the hole just played. Walking is the heart of the game, and design like this undermines it. That said, the fairways and greens were in surprisingly good condition for late March in New England.

I really enjoy playing this course. It’s always easy to get on and I’ve never had issues with the pace of play. Just wish they would get their kitchen/bar open!!
