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.

Varsity Golf at Mount Holyoke College

From 1975 to 2020, Mount Holyoke College sponsored a varsity golf program. On September 17, 2020, Mount Holyoke made the difficult decision to discontinue the program. This decision came after an extensive review of many factors, including student interest, indoor practice needs, competitive season, coaching support and conference alignment. 

The program's history dates back to the 1975-76 academic year and will be remembered through the student-athletes that have excelled among the nation’s top competition and multiple appearances at the NCAA Division III Championship Tournament. Mount Holyoke College will continue to honor the history of the program, its tremendous golf alums and committed coaches.
