Golf in October at Hemlock Ridge Golf Course in Sturbridge, MA
One of the most picturesque golf courses in Central Massachusetts is located in Sturbridge. Hemlock Ridge Golf Course is set among the western hills of town, allowing for beautiful views amidst the greens.
The usual golf season here runs from April 1 to November 30, and when I visited this morning, the course was busy with early risers. Not surprising, given the golden sun of the day. The course starts its tee times at 6 AM, and it appeared that several golfers were already finishing their nine holes.
Hemlock Ridge was built in 1970. Prior to the golf course, the land was farm land where the owners, the Palmer family, raised cattle. As time passed, the Palmers started to convert their farm into a golf course.
Hemlock Ridge is a nine-hole course. The course has men's and women's leagues and is host to numerous tournaments and fundraisers throughout its season.
Its location makes it a convenient place for golfers to play. Take Route 20, and head south on Holland Road. Hemlock Ridge is on the right side. Enjoy the view of the glorious green hills as you make your way to the clubhouse and 1st hole.
More information can be found on the Hemlock Ridge Golf Course web site. Set your tee time - there is still a good month left to play.
