Spring is here and it is time for golfers in the Massachusetts-Rhode Island area to tee it up. If you are looking for a premier public course for tournaments or a league, you should consider Hazelton Golf Club in Rehoboth, Massachusetts.
Sun Valley was a popular golf course designed by the legendary Geoffrey Cornish back in 1959. It was a challenging but easy to walk course that was a favorite of many golfers including Joe Moniz, a prominent businessman who owns Crestwood Country Club, a private course about a mile down the road from Hazelton.
But lack of maintenance left Sun valley in disrepair, and eventually it closed.
Moniz shared the disappointment of area golfers.
“I had such fond memories of Sun Valley that I wanted to make an investment necessary to provide a great course for area public golfers that I myself enjoyed for so many years,” said Moniz.
And now that course is back to life with a new name: Hazelton Golf Club.
Moniz has made a number of major improvements at Hazelton with the help of Tim Gerrish who worked with Cornish on some of the finest courses in the country. That expertise has converted Hazelton into one of the finest public courses in the area.
Hazelton is the perfect course for golfers of all levels. From the tips the course plays to 6,740 yards. There are six sets of tees, with the front tees playing at only 3,145 yards suitable for junior and novice golfers.
In addition, Hazelton has constructed a magnificent clubhouse. The building is made from a light-colored stone, with sweeping arches framing the entrance to the restaurant and bar. This upscale clubhouse is the perfect place after a round of golf for a delicious meal. The restaurant is open to all, seven days a week.
A new driving range is being constructed next to the course so you can warm up before you tackle this classic golf club. Contact Hazelton Golf Club today to make arrangements for your golf league and/or tournament.
