Cranwell Resort, Spa and Golf Club
I f you like classic golf courses in beautiful setting then you have to pay a visit to Cranwell Resort, Spa and Golf Club, located in Lenox, Ma.

You will find a picturesque, traditional New England course that is over 90 years old and designed by the noted architects of the early 2th century, Wayne Stiles and John Van Kleek. The layout rolls easily over the hills surrounding the resort and through mature woodlands of the area. The track course features tree-lined fairways and naturally contoured greens that have been carefully preserved.

 The first three holes wander near a small clubhouse. The tee box on the third hole, a little 152-yarder that has a huge pine tree guarding the left side of the putting surface, is right by the resort’s roadway, so you may have to hold your swing until cars have passed by behind you.
The eighth hole is one of the best on the course. You tee off next to the resort hotel and can cut the distance to the hole on the 347-yard par-four dramatically if you take the drive over trees that hug the left side. It’s all downhill to a small green that is easy to miss if you don’t concentrate on the pitch shot.
