About Shining Rock
Just one year after opening in 2010, New England golfers now have another "must play" course for their bucket list. Dubbed "A diamond in the rough" and "#4 New Course in America" by Golf Magazine, Shining Rock has already developed a loyal following of golfers from throughout New England.
Carved out of a majestic 146-acre tract of rolling landscape that affords sweeping views of the historic Blackstone Valley Corridor, Shining Rock Golf Club gives every level of golfer a memorable round. The par 72 course measures 6,735 yards from the championship tees and each hole offers three to five tee boxes. With an elevation change of 255 feet from the highest to the lowest point on the course, golfers are presented with some stunning holes that will be talked about for their jaw-dropping and chiseled beauty. All 18 holes have been named and many reflect the area's rich cultural and industrial heritage with designations such as "Kuttutuck," "Blackstone," "Quarry," "Rockdale," "Pemaogok," "Towpath" and "Shining Path."
The iconic and namesake Shining Rock is a sheer cliff of granite that sits prominently almost 80 feet above the forest floor below and offers breathtaking vistas over 30 miles into Rhode Island and Central Massachusetts. The abundance of mica found in the glacial rock causes the formation to glisten in the sunshine after a rain and was a landmark for early settlers to the Blackstone Valley.
