Taconic Golf Club

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1896

Taconic Golf Club, located on the campus of Williams College in Williamstown, lies in the far northeast corner of Massachusetts. The championship golf course ranks with some of the best in the state, and is continually rated as one of the top collegiate golf courses in the United States.

This gently rolling tree-lined and open parkland layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area.

Pick of the holes: the long par-3 17th hole is the only surviving hole from the original seven-hole course laid out in 1896.
