Blissful Meadows Golf Club in Uxbridge, Ma. is an interesting Cornish & Silva design that is playable for all levels of golfers.
Blissful Meadows plays to around 6,700 yards from the back markers and has won rave reviews for its condition 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 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 opener, 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.
The par-three 13th and 15th holes are visually stunning 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.
Blissful Meadows was once a working farm and New England charm still exists here, from historic buildings, the abandoned “Scadden Silver Mine,” original stone walls, and 100 year-old farm machinery. It all conspires to bring the golfer back to a simpler time, all while enjoying one very beautiful and challenging course.
