IGM, is proud to have two of our northeastern client golf courses named to Golf Advisor’s Top 25 Courses in New England in 2017. The Ledges in South Hadley, MA, and Chicopee Country Club in Chicopee, MA, were recognized, based on player reviews.

Unlike many ratings, Golf Advisor compiles reviews by their membership, who pay for their own rounds and receive no special access at the golf courses. They are encouraged to rate courses whenever they play. As stated on the Golf Advisor website, “The result is a list that features a wide variety of courses, including a lot of very affordable courses. There are over-achieving municipal and value courses alongside some of the most coveted public rounds in the U.S.” The five-star ratings are based on each player’s personal expectations, covering such points as playing conditions, course layout, and staff friendliness.

“We’re proud of the work Regional Manager Tyler Minamyer and the course superintendents are doing at The Ledges and Chicopee to exceed player expectations,” said IGM Executive Vice-President Greg Plotner. “A golf course is a significant asset for owners, and IGM prides ourselves on implementing top quality golf course maintenance programs to preserve that asset. The Ledges and Chicopee Country Club are long-time clients, and we’re happy for the positive reputation these courses have achieved.”

The Ledges is a municipal golf course in South Hadley, MA. Course Superintendent Mike Fontaine has been with IGM at The Ledges since the golf course maintenance contract began in 2005. Chicopee Country Club is also municipally-owned, with maintenance overseen by Superintendent Mike Bach.

For the Top 25 Courses in New England list, a total of 316 courses were reviewed a cumulative 3,865 times. Six New England states were included: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.
