Detailed description of Shining Rock Golf Course

Shining Rock Golf Course is a Semi-Private 18-hole golf course located in Northbridge, Massachusetts.

Shining Rock Golf Course opened for play in 2010. The course was designd by Patrick Sullivan.

Carved out of a majestic 146-acre tract of rolling landscape that affords sweeping views of the historic Blackstone Valley Corridor, Shining Rock Golf Club gives every level of golfer a memorable round. The par 72 course measures 6,735 yards from the championship tees, 74.1/139 ratings, and can play as short at 5,000 from the front tees. and each hole offers three to five tee boxes. With an elevation change of 255 feet from the highest to the lowest point on the course, golfers are presented with some stunning holes. All 18 holes have been named and many reflect the area's rich cultural and industrial heritage with designations such as "Kuttutuck," "Blackstone," "Quarry," "Rockdale," "Pemaogok," "Towpath" and "Shining Path."

The iconic and namesake Shining Rock is a sheer cliff of granite that sits prominently almost 80 feet above the forest floor below and offers breathtaking vistas over 30 miles into Rhode Island and Central Massachusetts. The abundance of mica found in the glacial rock causes the formation to glisten in the sunshine after a rain and was a landmark for early settlers to the Blackstone Valley.

Beautiful layout that could not have been designed by a golfer, many holes seem contrived for their scenic beauty as opposed to shot value. Wasn't worth the hype, the drive or the 5+ hours to play. It could have Augusta's greens and it wouldnt be worth it, ok maybe it would. But the greens although good for this price range weren't something to keep me coming back, nor the best I have played in this price range. Just very dissappointed, like red tail much better, a stern but fair test. Played from the back tees , I'm a 2 handicap.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
