Shining Rock Golf Club Welcomes Early Season Play

New England’s Award-Winning Course to Open March 10

Shining Rock Golf Club celebrates its third season early with Opening Day on Saturday, March 10. The unusually mild New England weather will allow golfers to tee it up at the area’s highly decorated daily fee course that has earned significant rating honors in its first two years of operation.


Golfers will be pleased to find that Shining Rock has completed its short game practice facility, which includes a 10,000 square foot putting green plus a practice bunker and a dedicated practice chipping area. Warm-up nets also will help prepare players to take on this challenging course.


Golf House, Shining Rock’s new clubhouse that opened last June, boasts the popular Rockdale Grill. The Grill will be open for lunch only throughout March and Chef Sean Balian, whose exceptional menus offer reasonably priced New England fare, has received rave reviews from golfers and local diners.


Shining Rock also provides two attractive membership categories with significant benefits for golfers who want to make the club their home base (Full Membership) or who play more than 20 rounds a year (Associate Membership). Only 75 Full Memberships are available for 2012, and with a Full Membership comes the bonus Reciprocal Club option that entitles playing privileges at a network of five distinguished clubs from “The Freedom Golf Trail” located in Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Shining Rock will provide a 10% discount for golfers who take advantage of either membership category by March 31st.


“We believe we offer an excellent product, priced reasonably and accessible to golfers not only in the state but in New England,” said spokesman Tim Gordon. “In our two years of operation, we have worked diligently to provide an exceptional golf course, comfortable clubhouse, an appealing selection of quality food and beverages. Our new short game practice area should prove to be a popular new amenity. We are enthusiastic about opening early this year and anticipate a full tee sheet as our reputation continues to grow.”

Tee times can be reserved 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, up to 7 days in advance at the online Shining Rock Golf Club reservation system at All tee times booked online must be secured with a valid credit card.
