Taconic Golf Club
|Taconic Golf Club is a
short walk from
heart of the Williams campus
In the fall of 2002 the Williams women's golf team hosted their
first annual Varsity event at the renowned Taconic Golf Club.
Taconic, continually rated as one of the top collegiate golf
courses in the nation, is owned by Williams College and is home to
both the Ephs' men's and women's golf teams.
The Boston Globe voted Taconic number one in the state for scenic beauty, as well as the “seventh most difficult” and “fourth most pleasurable to play” compared to 200 of the finest courses in the northeast. The Club, which is just a short walk from the heart of campus, has a long and storied history. This history is enhanced by its outstanding layout, superb course conditions, and magnificent Berkshire vistas. Additionally, a putting green as well as a practice bunker and wedge area at Taconic gives the Ephs an opportunity to consistently improve and fine tune their game.

Additional Practice Facilities
In addition to playing at one of the nation’s finest courses, the women’s golf team has access to all of the training facilities that the College offers. The weight training and nautilus center, both in Lasell Gymnasium, may be used in and out of season to improve conditioning, flexibility, and strength. Lasell also offers three indoor hitting areas, used during inclement conditions, and for swing analysis and technical preparation. Here, state of the art video equipment is frequently used to aid in swing technique. Finally, a newly designed driving range and practice green at another local course, Waubeeka Golf Links, is also available to the team and ensures complete preparation for practice and competitive play.
