About Skyline Country Club

2nd Hole, Lake in distanceSkyline Country Club is for golf. It doesn't have tennis courts, croquet lawns or swimming pools. It has golf. Skyline Country Club is one of those places that when you turn a corner, or for that matter just rotate in a 360 degree twirl, the breathe gets taken from you with a gasp. In a New England setting, one envisions streams, mountains and lakes. Skyline Country Club will give you access and views of all of those features, from Mt.Greylock to the north, to the stream running through the golf course itself and of Pontoosuc Lake to the south. The Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts is one of the prettiest places in America with the mountains rolling out in front of you that they seem to roll out forever. Skyline Country Club climbs over, meanders around and then lazes back down one of those Berkshire Hills. The old legend is that from the 17th tee you can see 4 states. And be lucky enough to play the golf course under a blanket of foliage, you'll feel like you are in a golfing utopia right out of a Thomas Kincaid masterpiece! Then there is the golf itself. From a 102 yard blind tee shot par three to a 522 yard uphill par five that will challenge even the biggest hitters, there are enormously interesting golf shots to be struck on every hole. The course will let you hit every club in your bag. A particular favorite is the drivable par four 14th. The hole starts with an elevated tee shot that drops for what seems like hundreds of feet to a green set in a valley, some 265 yards away. Watching that golf ball drop out of the blue sky onto that green carpet, well golf doesn't get any better than that! A well struck tee shot from this perch seems to hang in the air for hours, and if you get rewarded with an 8 foot eagle putt or a two putt birdie, well that is just all the better. For those in search of a hidden New England gem of a golfing layout, run, don't walk, to the golf course at Skyline Country Club.
