Many of the Club members are summer residents of the Berkshires of Western Mass. The Club is a great way to meet people and make friends. Members often get together in the winter in Florida and other southern states.
"Being new to the Berkshires we looked for a golf club but after joining Blandford we found it was much more than a place to play golf. We met most of our summer friends at the club and enjoy every minute of it" Roberta O.
The Blandford Golf and Tennis Club facilities include a banquet room, lodging rooms upstairs for members' out of town guests, plus a card room, pro shop, and snack bar. It's not hard to stay all day: golf in the morning, lunch at the snack bar, then a foursome of bridge or tennis in the afternoon. Members use the hall to host wedding receptions, anniversary parties, concerts and family reunions catered by the finest area chefs.
