This course has back tees that will challenge the best golfers and closer tees so everyone can enjoy. This is a true golf course - no rinky dink holes. Conditions are always good and the greens are immaculate for a public course with alot of play.

Westover has a couple very long par 4's and a few par 5's, so long hitters have some advantages. The rough could use a medium cut to transition from fairway to long rough. If you're off the fairway, you're hitting a flyer or chunk every time. It's always busy but efficient at getting you on the course. Beverage cart is great. Staff is good, conditions are good. Great course to walk as it is basically two plateaus so no up/down.

This course is fairly flat, generous fairways, in great shape. It is located next to the airforce base, so expect to see lots of aircraft flying low overhead, great view and sound., holes 11, 12, 13 are best for the aircraft. The pace was a bit slow for us, we had several groups ahead, the greens are very nice. I would play again, for me it is worth the drive to get there.

If you're from the Boston area and getting sick of the muni scene within I-95, I'd recommend making a trip out here to check out Westover. The course was entertaining without being difficult. Lots of approachable greens, and the greens were in good shape. Front 9 was pretty slow, but we moved along nicely at the back 9 (I think a good number of people only play 9 here).

This is a course with the potential of being one of the best tests of golf in the area. Unfortunately, little effort has been put into it, other than routine maintenance. What work has been done, has been primarily to emphasize pace of play. This includes removal of several strategically placed fairway bunkers on holes 7 and 14. What bunkers remain could use work including adding sand. The good news is staff is always friendly and helpful and the prices are comparable, if not slightly lower than other munis in the area. We will continue to play here, while knowing that the course's glory days are behind it.

Easy walker.

Rough reasonable.

Good green speed. Always in excellent condition.

However I like to play about 6-6300 yards. Choices are 5400 then 6700 then over 7200.

Most holes go back and forth and are relatively straight. Fun track to play. Interesting with planes and choppers flying overhead. Nostalgic and patriotic course to play!

The course was in good shape although there was a fair amount of leaves on the front 9; back 9 was better with fewer leaves. Basically the fairways and greens were in good shape. Always enjoy playing here.

Course was in great shape and well maintained.

Rough was long ( as usual ) and distance off the

tee is important. Only negative - traps could use

some more sand.

Course is in the best condition I have seen it in for a while. Unfortunately played in the rain the whole way around. Fun and a great value all the way around. Best for long hitters (which I'm not).
