The Williams and Princeton Clubs of New York are happy to announce a new and exciting relationship with the Taconic Golf Club in Williamstown, MA. For our Club members, this means significantly discounted rates for membership dues and greens fees at one of the most highly regarded golf courses in the country. Club members also now enjoy the benefits of the “Purple Perks” program at the nearby Williams Inn: discounted room rates, a complementary gift bag, free upgrades and late checkout (3 pm!) when available.
Located on the Williams College campus in the beautiful Berkshires, The Taconic was most recently ranked the #2 collegiate golf course in the U.S. by Golfweek Magazine, and #1 by www.thebestcolleges.org. It is known for its beauty, with challenging greens and rolling hills amidst the purple mountains of western Massachusetts, as well as the fact that golf legend Jack Nicklaus lays claim to a hole-in-one on the Taconic’s 14th. Former Williams Club Programs Chair, journalist, film producer, and Williams golf team captain, Paul Lieberman ’71 recounted the event in a short film which nicely captures the legacy and beauty of the course:
