Great Challenge

If you play the Blue or Black tees and shoot a good score, you can play anywhere. Upkeep is that of a course struggling financially in these difficult golf times. Traps not racked, no pro shop to speak of, limited staff, etc.

A Great course to get a quality challenge(or beat up) and not break the bank. Original layout is wonderful. Long holes, tough dog legs with risk/reward, trouble everywhere off the fairway....This course will test you, but well worth the $$$$.....As soon as you finish you will want to play it again.

Where’s the starter?? Bunkers have grass and weeds in them. Rock hard bunkers also. Cart paths need desperate repairs. Is there a refreshment cart , I think not. No water to drink on the course on a warm day. Empty ball washers. Tattered flags need replacement. Tee boxes were grizzly. DON’T BOTHER PLAYING THERE, EVEN IF GOLFNOW HAS CHEAP RATES. YOU WILL REGRET IT!!!

The fairways and greens were in great shape with great views. All the ball washers were broken and there was no drinking water available on the course. Its wert playing at a discount price just bring your own beverages.

Live in Hamden so this is a easy stop for me to get in a round. Was charged 45 once without a golf now reservation where you pay 35 so keep that in mind for a "discount". Course has gone downhill over the years due to rumors of a bad golf pro running the place so I hear, but in 2017 I find the course to be in good shape for the most part. Cart paths do need work, sand traps are not sand, but fairways are OK and for the most part the greens look great. I see signs for "mickeys grill" on some of the holes but never see a restaurant open and the pro shop has nothing in it for sale. Anyway, I still like coming here and will continue. Hope they turn it around over the next few years.

Appartantly low budget town maintenance. Mowers were noisy lacks reseeding. Divot filler lacked scoops. Challenging course. Could be great with more care. Greens and fairways were decent. Several traps in poor condition

This was once a premier coarse, but it has gone downhill. There are weeds growing in the traps, which seem to get raked once a month. The sand, if you can call it sand, needs rejuvenating or replacing. There are weeds in the apron around the greens, and there are a lot of damaged spots on the greens that are not being repaired. The cart paths are washed out and in great need of repair.

The course is in need of some TLC... The traps don't have any sand at all. They are filled with dirt and rocks. Played there last year and there weren't enough carts. Had to wait a half hour for carts to come in then. Had to wait about twenty minutes this time. And the cart paths are in rough shape too. The pro shop is almost non existent. Pretty much down to a counter and a cash register.

The so-called bunkers on this course are horrible. There is not one bit of sand. There's plenty of rocks and hardpan though. Impossible to hit out of them. The cart paths will break your spine. Whomever cuts the holes must be self-taught, there are plenty of green imperfections from previous holes. The clover gets high and turns white making it hard to find your ball in the rough.

I booked the night before and got a super hot deal. It had rained the day before but the course was nice and dry. Fairways and greens were in good condition. I think they could move the tee boxes around more often for the par 3s but other than that I have no complaints. I will be playing there again soon.
