Sand Traps

While I really enjoy this course with its great layout and excellent greens the sand traps were pretty bad today. Like hitting off concrete. We may not be able to have rakes on the course due to COVID but that doesn’t mean they can’t condition the traps in the morning.

Above average course

Dramatic views and lots of elevation changes.Course was in decent shape, it looks like it gets a lot of play and people don't fix their ball marks and divots. It had rained a few days ago and the bunkers were like playing out of hard mud. Wide open fairways and not a lot of forced carries greens were fast with some tough pin placementsPace of play really bogged down the last few holes especially when trying to finish the round before dark. I'd play here again on a hot deal but I was expecting pristine conditions and it was just above average.

Gorgeous golf course in great condition

Love this golf course. Really well-maintained, challenging (but not too challenging). Many holes have beautiful views. Highly recommended.

Course was dry with hard fairways, and difficult pin placements. Always a great course, but tough for average golfer to score well in these conditions. The slope rating should be a lot higher!

Nice Course but Slow Play

The Ranch was a fun experience. We were greeted with a cart at our car and a friendly welcome. The carts had GPS that worked well and even had sand and a ball washer. The course was in good shape and was certainly challenging. I would play the course again but the price is normally higher than most courses that I play. It also took about 5 hours to play 18 holes. The photo was taken from the tee of the 16th hole. It is a beautiful par five that goes down the hill and around the water. Good Luck!

Great Course

Course was in great condition for just being aerated 5 days earlier. Weather was a bit wet and humid. Would definitely play it again.

Great staff, course is a unique layout that tests your creativity. Even though greens were recently aerated they were were true. Will be back to play the Ranch.

A Beautiful Golf Club

It was picturesque. The course was extremely difficult to the average golfer. For the amount of money I paid, it was out of my league. I didn't enjoy it at all, that's just me. My son has been here a few times and he was the one who booked our tee times. This course has added 10 strokes to his and my game. Greens are very nice but so difficult because of the terrain. Pin positions was for experts, very difficult. The driving range balls used to be included in the price, not any more. It was not expensive for the range balls, but it used to be free.

Scenic views and lots of challenge

We loved the course layout. Found the venue quite challenging. Course in reasonably good shape despite the hot and dry weather conditions. Greens in excellent shape.

We were disappointed there was was food service on a Monday. Friendly Pro Shop.

Definitely would return to play again.

Wow. Just wow!

First time playing the course so wasn’t sure what to expect when we arrived. Well, it was way more than expected. I would play this course 7 days a week if I didn’t live 2 hours away. So impressed right from when we pulled up at the bag drop until we turned our cart in at the end. Staff was attentive and super friendly, course layout was spectacular and the conditions we top notch. I promise you will not find a better course in Massachusetts for the value. I can’t wait to play it again in the fall when I imagine the views are spectacular!

Great course

Other than having a 2 some in front of me walking. It slowed the play down. The course is in great shape and the staff was friendly. I was lucky and only paid $35.00 on the Golfnow app.
I would definitely play this course again!

This place is phenomenal

Few buddies and I play this course every year (we’re about an hour and 45 mins away). So worth the drive every time. We played last Sunday at it was in phenomenal shape, greens were true and the fairways are like carpets. We enjoyed it so much we played 27 that day.
