Blissful Meadows Golf Club
Blissful Meadows Golf Club in Uxbridge, Ma. is one of Geoffrey Cornish’s and Brian Silva’s best designs and is a delight to play during the fall, as it winds its way through mature stands of trees that come ablaze at this time of year.

The course is not long, even from the back markers, playing around 6,700 yards from the tips. But, an indication of just how good the course is and how well it is managed came in 2004 when it was voted that year’s Golf Course of the Year by the New England Golf Course Owners Association.

Surrounded by the aforementioned woods as well as open meadows, the course presents a unique and secluded golfing experience. The front nine is more open than the back, which features several dramatic elevation changes and two of the best par-threes you’ll find anywhere. The conditions are always very good.

The opening hole is a 353-yard par-four that demands a precise downhill tee shot to find a fairway that bends slightly to the left. The approach is to an elevated green with bunkers guarding the right side. It’s a visually exciting start to your round.

The par-three 13th and 15th holes are stunning, a bit intimidating, and demand accurate mid- to long-irons off the tee in order to clear waste areas below and in front of the greens. Rock outcroppings lend a natural feel to the design of the two holes.

The 17th hole, a 400-yard par-four, is a perfect set up to the finishing hole. The toughest shot is the approach, with a pond guarding the green to the left. When the pin is tucked close to the water it begs you to pull off a hero shot and risk making bogey or worse.

Blissful Meadow’s finisher measures 420 yards from the tips and calls for a solid approach shot over a pond that guards the front left side of the putting surface.
