I love, love, love this place....
I play a lot of golf at a lot of courses in the Eastern CT/Western RI area. Fenner Hill is one of my top-shelf tracks every...single...time...I...go...there.
I'm a solid 9-handicap and this course challenges me on most every shot . The course will give up pars and birdies, but you will need to concentrate and manage the course from the first tee to the last putt.
Simply put, this is a great test for me.
I kinda/sorta like when a golf course "wins" every once in awhile, as long as the course beats me fair and square; that is, the course's defense can't be a bunch of screwy miniature-golf type holes.
Fenner Hill beats you fair and square. If you enjoy having your game challenged, there are 18 challenges on this track. There are a couple of par 4s that are reachable, provided you driver is long AND accurate. If they aren't BOTH, you're well-advised to layup. There are a couple of par 5s that are reachable in two, provided you're fairway club of choice is long AND accurate. If they aren't BOTH, you're well-advised to make them three-shot par 5s.
This course's true defense, however, is its greens. They roll perfectly, but they are FAST and they have more curves than Jane Mansfield (dating myself there!). You need to EXPECT to three-putt a couple of times during your round.
I fought Fenner Hill to a draw. She knocked me around pretty good on the front-side, but I came back strong on the back side.
I really can't say enough good things about this course; I can't wait to get back into the ring again with it next year.
Minor complaint: No driving range.
Very nice course to play. From checking in to the starter staff was very nice and pleasant. It was good to see a ranger roaming the course as well. I would definitely play there again and bring other friends(golfers) along.
