If you've never been to Marshall Street, then it's definitely worth the trip. It's probably a little more than an hour from South Deerfield. There are 2 Sweet courses right next to each other (Pyramids and Maple Hill) plus a Sick pro shop over at Pyramids.

No I have not been to Marhsal Street and thought about going there but was hoping to find some courses closer to Deerfield. I guess nobody on the forum lives in Mass.

The PDGA website lists Tully Lake as about 22 miles from South Deerfield, definitely a sweet course...they have elevation, water, and woods holes...fun course. Highlands of Conway is another fun course, a nicely manicured woods course. Barre Falls is about 30 miles from there and its a great course as well...army corps of engineers land. Big shots you can really stretch your arm out there. But if you are in the area...Marshall Street is definitely worth the trip...just make sure you get to play both Maple Hill and Pyramids.

BTW...I would definitely mapquest the locations....PDGA site distances are often misleading. I'm thinking that Tully might be a bit more than 22 miles.

Yo.

Check out the Highlands of North Conway, I have heard only good things about the course. I have never played it myself, but have met the designer and many of their locals. Plus I am very friendly with alot of the local pro's in our state and Dave Balkema (designer) is a very well respected golfer in this state.

here's the courses website, they also have a proshop:

http://web.mac.com/davebalkema/iWeb/HDG/Welcome.html

If I am not mistaken, Jason Johnson, (MA State PDGA rep) had something to do with this course and design also, I may not be right though.

I know for sure that the Northhampton Course is worth playing, as it was designed by Jason Johnson, and holds a tourney every year that is sponsored by Dogfish Head Brewing Co. Jason is a long time stallwort in this state, and the course is worth playing.

Tully is a course with a TON of potential, but might be a little tough to follow if playing by yourself for the first time.

Flatrock just became a public course and is also another course that is worth playing.

You should have enough golf to keep you busy with those recommendations.

On your way up if you are going 95 and through or near Norwalk Connecticut, Cranbury Park is worth the visit... I dont know where you are coming from though.

Conway is definitely a fun course...I've been up there 2x. Its a bit of a drive for me, but definitely worth the trip! 8)

Northampton is boarderline unplayable right now. That place is ALIVE. When are you making the trip? Crane hill may be installed by that time (Wilburham sp?).

Not bugs the grass is very long everywhere and the bushes that line a lot of the fairways are just out of control. You WILL loose a ton of plastic out there. I don't go anywhere near that place until at least mid october.
