The Orchards Golf Club

The Orchards Golf Club is Mount Holyoke's 18-hole championship golf course. A shrine to the game and to its creator, The Orchards remains a hidden gem for club members and their guests. It was crafted in 1922 from 160 acres of sloping wooded terrain by the legendary Donald Ross and is now famous across the northeast for its course design. The facility has hosted the 2004 U.S. Women's Open and the 2002 NCAA Women's Division III National Championships.
