Depending on ground conditions....
Plan A: If there’s deep snow covering the course, the public is invited to experience the fun and exhilaration of a guided snowshoe trek on the grounds of our beautiful public golf course. This is a terrific opportunity for novices to bring their snowshoes as the terrain is relatively easy. For those more experienced, this is a chance to indulge in a more laid-back trek (or perhaps the first one of this winter season!). The hike will be approximately 1-1.5 miles in length.
Plan B: If there is no snow or not enough snow, the outing will be a guided walking trek on the golf paths of the course to/from the trails of the Newton-Jones-Carver Conservation Areas which are adjacent to the “back” of the Ledges. This is a wonderful opportunity to discover and explore little-known gems of Town-owned conservation land. The trails are relatively flat with a few minor-moderate ascents and descents. Total trek time is approximately 90 minutes.
For either “plan”, meet at 12:45 pm in the Club’s parking lot at The Ledges Golf Course, 18 Mulligan Dr., South Hadley. Wear weather-appropriate clothing and safe footwear, and bring water. Walking poles are highly recommended for Plan A, the snow-shoe trek. Post-trek, please join BWC members in the parking lot for light refreshments and socializing! Be aware that the club facilities are closed for the season, including restrooms. Non-enjoyable or hazardous inclement weather/conditions will force a cancellation.
