“Blackstone National Golf Club in Sutton is an aesthetically beautiful track that winds easily over a hilly landscape, through mature forests, and past old stonewalls. When one plays this special course, he or she can feel truly at one with nature and alone with playing partners, as each hole is designed to be separate from the others.” – Tom Landers, Golfing Magazine
Stockbridge Golf Club was founded in 1895, one of the oldest clubs in the United States. Relatively flat, but narrow, the course is challenging. The Housatonic River runs through the course and comes into play on 11 of the 18 holes. One can actually hit a tee shot on the 10th and with either a hook or slice, find the same river. Stockbridge Golf Club has hosted the longest running Men’s Invitational tournament in the country, dating back to 1898. Surrounded by the Rockwell Museum, Tanglewood, Chesterwood and the historic Stockbridge downtown, it is worth a trip.
Waterville Country Club is a member owned semi-private golf course perched in the hills of Oakland, Maine. A Geoffrey Cornish design, Waterville Country Club’s 18 holes provides something for golfers of all skill levels. Beginners will be able to see their destination from almost every tee box while experienced players will be challenged by well maintained and undulating greens. As a semi-private club, both members and non-members can access the facility but members enjoy an active golf calendar of club sponsored events. In addition to the golf course, Waterville Country Club’s facility includes a pro-shop, restaurant, two putting greens and a practice range.
“On behalf of the Members of the Baker Hill Golf Club, I am delighted to welcome you to a very special place. Our Rees Jones-designed course has earned many accolades, such as holding Golf Digest’s ranking as the top-rated course in New Hampshire currently and for 12 of the last 14 years and as host to elite tournaments such as the New England Amateur in 2016. But what really sets our Club apart is our membership, our incredible location adjacent to Lake Sunapee, and the fact that our course is seldom very busy given our bylaws that limit the number of members. This is our first reciprocal relationship with an organization like the Harvard Club, and we hope you will take full advantage of the opportunity. Welcome to our home course.” – John Gilbert, President
