I have played New England Country Club many times, and have found the course to be a great challenging course. You have think your way around this course because there are many blind shots, and lots of slope on the course. The course is in excellent shape with very good greens and lots of undulations. The pub serves decent food... More

The golf course is gorgeous and challenging. The food in the clubhouse is fantastic. Thursdays in the summer, there is live music on the patio where you are treated to amazing sunsets. They have a tent for large events , catering and a beautiful backdrop of nature for the bride's photos.

Well, the course layout is difficult with plenty of typical new england armoring, i.e. large rocks left in place at times making an approach or fairway landing difficult. This is in addition to the normal hazard collection like sand traps, well placed trees, etc. The staff are very friendly and there is a beverage cart making the rounds. The greens... More

Nice track and good conditions, but really slow play on a beautiful Sunday morning. The women's tees were moved so far forward, they weren't even in a tee box but on the fairway. Suppose they thought that would help pace of play, but what they really need is a few rangers on the course.

This Hale Irwin design has the look of a much older course, with interesting old style bunkering. It is a thinking mans course and because of the tight, tree lined fairways and many marshes and ponds, not for the inaccurate player. But if you can hit it reasonably straight, it is a lot of fun to play while offering plenty... More

New England Country Club is an excellent course in Bellingham, Massachusetts. I was very impressed by their outstanding greens and course layout. All carts have a gps which allows you to judge your distance and gives you helpful tips. The lounge downstairs was classy and clean, unlike many other courses. If you can get out on a Thursday, it's only... More
