Founded more than 100 years ago, The Blandford Club positioned its challenging nine holes for all skill levels, set amid sloping hills and lush woods in a private and friendly setting. Gaze over the Connecticut River valley as you and a partner promenade through the par 35 course, where six verdant par 4 holes come neighbored by a couple of par 3 holes with well-manicured lawns and one par 5 that only appears for block parties. Swingers can feel free to club around at a leisurely pace, and the course presents a welcoming atmosphere to take in a quick round before or after work.
The Blandford Club
Since it first appeared more than a century ago, The Blandford Club has billed itself as a social beehive for its golf- and tennis-loving members in the Connecticut River Valley. The nine-hole golf course is a model of low-stress golf. Not only are the fairways wide and the greens friendly, but players don't need to schedule a tee time before showing up for a round, even if they aren't impersonating the president. Further, the fifth hole ends back at the clubhouse, so golfers are free to cut their rounds short if they're running low on daylight or only have a couple hours to spare. The user-friendliness extends to the tennis courts as well, where the Har-Tru court surface produces a reliable bounce while taking it easy on the knees.
