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.

Great course, especially for the money

I enjoy playing here. Hole nine kind of stinks but whatever. Prix is very friendly, course was in good shape considering the time of year. Looking forward to coming back next year.

November Golf

Went to Cold Spring on November 3 Rd. Weather was fantastic, conditions of the course we're great. Fairways green and cut. Greens we're fast all consistent.
Best conditions I have ever seen there. Some funky golf holes , but a god course to play. Would recommend to play.

3 par 3s and 3 par 5s each nine

Was our second time playing this course, but first time was years ago. The course is laid out to be challenging for all players. The greens are in great shape. There were only 2 negatives. First, it was a nice Sunday in October, so the course was busy and pace was slow. Second, the restaurant was closed. Hopefully the course can find someone to come in and run a restaurant there.

Check it out.

First thing I’d like to comment on on the golf course is the conditions the greens are great and the fairways were very nice, there was vertacut in the fairways but it didn’t affect play. The tees were flat and had grass on them. Now as far as design goes it has some pretty good elevation changes making club selection Paramont, local knowledge would be helpful as the second hole is a blind tea shot on a par five. If you play well and can drive 240yrds many of the par fives are reachable . It’s not a long course but the design requires you to think a little before you try and slice one around the corner of a dog leg. A well placed lay up may still allow you to reach a par 5 in 2. Was an enjoyable day.

Worst layout I've ever played on

I've lived local to this course all my life and have never played on it until yesterday. I have eaten there when it opened many years ago- seemed very high end. I see why the first two owners have failed to get memberships. It was 100% the weirdest course I've played on. The layout is extremely strange, and awkward. The holes around the club house are like hiking a mountain how vertical they are. Also, there is a 185 yard par 4! The pin is at least 60 feet above your head. I dont see the current owners lasting very long.

A few goods: Well kept fairways/greens and sand was nice.

Nice course, horrible everything else

18 holes took 5:22. No rangers at all. No 19th hole, range. The two guys in the pro shop were more interested in there cells than the golfers waiting to pay. Quirky little course on the shorter side even from playing from the Blues. Even with a deal at $57 we all felt like it was still over paying. All I can say is “ you have been warned”

Fun layout!

This is my home course and I play it often. I play from the whites.

The course has lots of holes that can be difficult or easy with a good drive.

It is a challenging course to walk with some holes with a lot of elevation, especially #9 and #18.

9 is a fun hole it is a driveable par 4 that plays about 215-220 carry. The card lists it at 181 but it is straight uphill.
If you miss short of the green it will roll back 20-50 yards.
