Finding Golf Nirvana at Blissful Meadows GC

The owners of Blissful Meadows Golf Club in Uxbridge, Massachusetts continue to improve their delightful Cornish & Silva design in order to make it even more interesting and playable for all levels of golfers.



The tee box on the third hole is being enlarged and two additional bunkers are being placed in the landing area on this dogleg right par-five. This should help players keep their tee shots in play, which will also improve speed of play on the hole.
Blissful Meadows plays to around 6,700 yards from the back markers and has won plaudits for its overall condition from a number of publications, and was voted the 2004 Golf Course of the Year by the New England Golf Course Owners Association.
Surrounded by woods and meadows, this is a truly 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 opener, a 353-yard par-four voted by Golfing Magazine as one of the best holes in Massachusetts, is called “Prelude” and 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.
The par-three 13th and 15th holes are visually stunning and demand accurate mid to long irons off the tee in order to clear nasty waste areas below and in front of the greens. Rock outcroppings lend a natural feel to the design of the two holes.
Number 17, 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 super tucks the pin close to the water he’s begging you to pull off a hero shot and risk making bogey or worse.
Blissful Meadow has a splendid finisher. The par-four measures 420 yards from the tips and calls for a nervy approach shot over a pond that guards the front left side of the putting surface.
