The Country Club of Greenfield

A prestigious 18-hole course in Greenfield, Massachusetts

27(logo)

The course, designed by Alex Findlay and extended to 18 holes with the design of Ralph Barton, opened at the current location in 1901. The Greenfield Golf Club, as it was first named, was established in 1896 and originally located in Greenfield’s Abercrombie Pasture. The club is considered one of the oldest golf clubs in New England.

The Country Club of Greenfield is comprised of 18 parkland and link style holes which, while not too severe for the average player, present sufficient difficulties to make the playing of par 72 a splendid test of distance and accuracy for the best golfers. Our greens are always considered some of the best in western Massachusetts; please contact our PGA Professional Kevin Piecuch to inquire about memberships, outings, tournaments call 413-773-7530 or email us at ccgreenfield@crocker.com

LOCAL RULE SHEET

U.S.G.A. rules govern play except when modified by local rules


Country Club of Greenfield Pro Shop: 413-773-7530 – Contact for Rules Official – USGA Rule 2-5



FLAGSTICK CODE OF CONDUCT: THE FLAGSTICK MUST REMAIN IN THE HOLE AT ALL TIMES. A PLAYER IS PROHIBITED FROM MAKING A STROKE WITH THE FLAGSTICK KNOWINGLY REMOVED.


  • NOTE: Touching the flagstick, the inadvertent removal and the subsequent replacement of the flagstick is not of itself a breach of the Flagstick Code of Conduct.

In Four-Ball play if a partner breaches a rule that helps the partners play, both players would receive the penalty. In a situation like the partner pulling the flagstick for his own partner (whether he knows it or not), this is helping and thus both players would receive the general penalty as stated in the expanded flag stick code of conduct (Penalty-2 strokes in stroke play and loss of hole in match play.)
