Fabulous course with beautiful layout. In good shape, played it down. Great value for the $. A bit crowded, brief wait on every tee and in most fairways but still played in 4:25. Not from the area but would definitely play again if near.

Love this course. Got a bargain with a Hot Deal and had a great day. Entire staff was super helpful and friendly. There was hardly anyone on the course when we played, so I couldn’t help but wonder if the regular greens fees are too high for most people. I think if they lowered their rates they would get more traffic and make a lot more on additional purchases in the pro shop and grill. We got lunch, dinner and drinks there. All were good. Absolutely no complaints about anything. We’ll definitely go back, but we’ll wait for another deal.

This course has everything. And with the hot deal I got $50 was well worth it. Played a 4 hour round that was not rushed. Greens were fast, smooth and true. New electric carts with GPS was an awesome addition to an already great course. I have played this course 3 times this year with no disappointment.

If you can find a deal, it’s well worth it. I find it too expensive at the regular rates. Well thought out layout. Some wide fairways and some layup shots. Definitely one of the better public courses in ct

The course was in good shape for spring conditions. The grass in the rough has not started to grow yet, so any off fairway hits run forever. Easy to lose a ball. Same with the grass around the green. Hit in too strong and there is no grass to slow your ball down. Putting on aerated greens with sand requires a Happy Gilmour approach of a hard slap shot to get to the hole.

The layout of this course is o e of the best I've played... every hole is different. My only complaint is that they didn't have a warning on golf now about the greens being punched and sanded. The greens were literally rolling a 4. I wouldn't have paid to play, and for the price there is no need for a course not to let you know the conditions.

I took advantage of a little better weather to play a round. The course was in good shape but due to the cold spring the grass in the rough was still dormant but the fairway has started to begin to green. Putting was a challenge because they recently aerated and sanded the greens. This made them putt extremely slow so it took the front nine to get used to really whacking your putts. Fairways were dry and drainage was good.

I just completed a round of golf at the Fox Hopyard Country Club in East Haddam, Connectixut. The course was in fantastic condition considering it is the end of November and closing in on Winter. The tees, fairways and greens were in great shape. The bunkers were thin and hard because if the cold weather, but overall, I had a very enjoyable round of golf. The Pro Shop staff is very frinedly, and we enjoyed a quick stop at the 19th hole after our round. This is a challenging course but playable for all skill levels. If you live in Connecticut or are traveling through Southern Connecticut, you will enjoy the experience.
