    Western/Central MA Club Now Live

    You can find it under clubs. I purposely did not include Eastern MA, because the travel between the two regions is usually just not manageable given most peoples' time considerations. Think Sturbridge/Quabbin and West, mainly focused within the pioneer valley, or just adjacent to the valley. Look forward to many new members and some active discussion. Perhaps even a round or two over the summer.

    Where in Western MA? I am in greater Springfield. I Started a club on this page to try and meet some golf people in the area.
  5. Great course, under joint ownership with Crestview in Agawam, MA. Maintenance is horrible, however. Most landscapes have their leaves from winter, dead grass strewn on fairways & Greens, and generall horrific cartpaths. along 11 & 12, there is a property dispute, so the neighbor has erected temporary fencing blocking off the paths. Clubhouse is closed due to (2) fires late last year. Plan is to operate from tents. When I was there, they had a couple of picnic table in the fron of a trailer they are operating out of. When the current management purchased the course, they did not acquire the driving range, so that is also a disappointment. What a shame for a nice course. A bit of TLC and $$, and this track will again be worthy of more outings.

    Have been Here twice since my first post. Nice course. Hilly overall, and straight is your friend. Driving range is a bit out of the way, but plenty servicable, and the facilities are in great shape.They come to your car when you arrive in the parking lot to load your clubs for you. Nice Touch. 5 sets of tees, and nicely maintained. I wil return.

    Looking to go here for the first time. Have heard good about it (Design), and bad (rock hard tee boxes and fairways). Anybody play here? It is fairly new, opening about 5 years or so ago.

    Weight loss and golf

    perhaps you have experienced some muscle loss with your fat loss. without weight training whil eon a diet, you are probable losing 75% fat and 25% muscle. This could certainly affect your swing and distance.
  11. Last year, october, my club was shut down for financial reasons. It then re-opened for two weeks after a one week shutdown. At the end of the two weeks, it shut down for good, was foreclosed on, and the auction was set for January 10th, 2012 all the rumours in town were about how developers were going to buy it for housing developments. I was quite concerned, as I live on the eighth hole, and did not want a development in my backyard luckily, an investor who runs a driving range/pitch & putt, batting cage establishment wanted to get into "Big Boy Golf" and purchased for his family to operate. Now I cannot wait until spring. Club will be private (Vs. semi-private last year) which I am enthused about. He is giving interviews to local newspapers indicating his desire to return it to the top notch course it was in the past. April 15th can't come fast enough!!
