North Adams Country Club

(1)

North Adams Country Club is a semi-private golf course located in Clarksburg, Massachusetts. The club hosts one of the oldest Invitational Singles Tournaments in New England.HistoryNorth Adams Country Club was established in 1903 as the North Adams Businessman's Club, and a nine-hole golf course was originally built at Windsor Lake. The land that presently comprises the North Adams Country Club was purchased in numerous installments from 1903 to 1911. The present course was designed by Orrin E. Smith. The existing clubhouse was built in 1952.Course layout and hole descriptionsThe course lies on rolling terrain, with several holes featuring considerable elevation changes. The course is relatively short, with a premium being placed on accuracy off the tee. The greens are generally small, and thus scoring can be largely dependent upon short game abilities.The 1st hole is a par 4 dogleg left, with out of bounds coming into play on the right. The second shot is downhill, with out of bounds on the left and in back of the green. The green can be receptive to shots played short right, due to a mound which feeds shots toward the green.The 2nd hole is an uphill par 3, featuring the most severely sloped green on the course. The green slopes considerably from back to front, and has bunkers on the left and right sides. Second shots played from above the hole during tournament conditions can be difficult, so it is often preferable to remain short of the hole.The 3rd hole is a straight, downhill par 4. A well struck tee shot could bring a lateral water hazard into play on the left, but anything in the fairway will likely catch a slope around 150 yards from the green and run out another 20-30 yards. The green is guarded by two bunkers, and a water hazard comes into play if the approach shot flies the green.
