Originally a nine-hole layout when it opened in 1895, another nine holes were added in 1900, making Stockbridge, for many years, Massachusetts' only 18-hole course west of Springfield. Now measuring 6,567 yards from the back tees, the course has hosted several Massachusetts Golf Association events.

The par-71 layout boasts many fine holes, including the 17th. The penultimate hole is a dogleg right that measures 426 yards, requiring accuracy off the tee followed by a pinpoint approach to a green some 70 feet wide.
