We brought a group of 16 golfers tp Westover for an afternoon of golf. The pro shop could not have been friendlier and more helpful. The "bar tender" was also courteous and friendly to everyone. We had perfect weather and the course conditions were equal to the weather. From the white tee's it is very challenging with gradual doglegs on most holes. There were no gimmicky holes to deal with, but plenty for challenge for our group with an average handicap of 10. It was a unanimous hit with all our players. We will be back. Thank you Westover for being such wonderful hosts!

Greens are slow; rough is very tough; course is long with no tees between 6700 and 5400; therefore, have to play a combination of tees from 6700 and 5400 to get a reasonable distance for most players (who are not kidding themselves).

As expected on a gorgeous day, the course was packed. We had a 9:00 tee time and this time of the year the course doesn't open til 7:30. Although the place was packed, the pace of play was good. The conditions at the course were outstanding-everything was in great shape. The grounds crew did a great job clearing the leaves, etc from the greens and most of the fairways.

Overall a great experience!

The course is in wonderful condition. It is by far the best I have seen here in over 20-years. Fairways are full with plenty of room to land balls, the greens are rolling true, and the pace of play was good. Billy and his staff do a wonderful job with the clubhouse. Check it out, it is well worth finding.

We played the course during "prime" hours on a Saturday. As we drove into the course, you could tell that the place was packed. We were a bit apprehensive because sometimes this place can play slow. We were pleasantly surprised at the pace of play. We were a twosome and were paired with another twosome and sent off early. The pairing and timing were perfect. We did not see the group in front of us most of the day. The pace of play was excellent and the course conditions were phenomenal. The greens were in great shape as was the rest of the course. Can't wait to play there again-probably next weekend.

Public course so lots of footprints some many days old leaving you with shots in heal marks. Bunkers also need to be refurbish with more sand as most only have about 1/2" then hard underneath. We knew the greens were just aerated, top-dressed and fertilized so putting was a challenge.

Still one of the best course around!

Show up half hour early for our 7am tee time, no one there to open the facilities, restaurant staff locked out as well. Billy from the pro shop shows up at 6:55 to open up. We walk in and he said he wasn't going to honor our tee time through golfnow.com because they always mess up and he has a shot gun start at 7:30 and a outing at noon. I asked why would you allow us to book it online if you knew we weren't going to able to play. He proceeds to yell at us and tells us to take it up with golfnow and to get out of his club house. Needless to say we didn't stay because Billy is such a class act. Ended up playing a course down the road. Save your money and play The Ledges instead.

Called Golfnow when I got home they completely handled the situation and provided me with a refund of my booking fee,

The only negative is there is no "normal" tees at 6000-6200 yards it's either 6700 (whites) of 5400 golds. Forget the blues unless you're a big hitter. This is still one of my favorites no matter the length.

Westover,

We golf at your course probably 5-6 times a year. This week the greens were in terrible shape on almost every hole. If we compared to Franconia or vets those places are in much better shape, a round is less money and 5 minutes from home.

We called on the 9th hole to order food and nobody answered so I called again, same thing. We stopped in to get food and was told we didn't hear the phone ring. You guys lost a few bucks there as only two people ordered food, we didn't have time to wait for something to be cooked other than a hot dog. No smile behind the bar either.

Wanted to leave some feedback for you guys not a complaint, there's a ton of competition these days as you know. Also saw some denim on the course, kind of surprised by that.

Unfortunately we probably won't be coming back, thanks for your time.

Always one of the best courses around Western Mass including private courses. The only negative is the white tees are to long for most average golfers while the golds are to short. There should be a set of tees in the 6000 yard range.
