It is a challenge to play golf in mid-October in CT. There was a frost delay and we were able to start 30 minutes later than our original tee time. The course was in great shape. A lot of challenging tee boxes and pin placements as you would expect for this time of year.
Fox Hopyard and crumpin Fox are top notch public championships courses. Staff is great. All services and good practice area. Course is in good condition for this late in the season
Weather was perfect to play a great course like this place. Greens were perfect and true. One of the best layouts in CT. Fairways were prestine. Just pricey but you get what you pay for so I’m satisfied.
I love playing this course. It is always in great conditions. The course itself is a fun and challenging course that always makes you want to play again and again.
Best course in the area. Very tough course. If you're not hitting well you'll probably go through a lot of balls. I definitely recommend this and definitely play it again.
Did a GN Hot Deal with a friend. Played from the blues. I can’t wait to play it again. Poor course management on my part. Love the layout! Staff was very friendly. Didn’t eat so it was just a round of golf. Course was in late August shape I should say, it looked like it’s been played on. Not much else to say. With the 40 days and 40 nights of non stop rain we’ve had this summer the areas where drains are in fairways had some rough spots but all in all, well kept course. We were able to play as just a 2some as the other guys didn’t show for the deal. Need another hot deal and to take a little better care in my shot decisions. But! I eagled the last hole! Highlight of the round.
The course was in great shape despite all the rain we've had this month. Greens were fast but consistent. Their new golf carts are really nice.
The course is not long, being just 6500 yards from the blue tees. But the course has some tough holes. the par 3's on the back are all long. There are some tight driving holes, particularly on the front, but it is an enjoyable layout. There were some spots in the fairways that weren't in great shape, and that surprised me. I thought it would be in better shape. Even the greens weren't as nice as I was expecting, particularly for the price. I enjoyed the course, and the pace was very good, but that was probably because there was a lot of rain in the forecast that kept people away.
STOP AND READ THIS.... if you are looking for a top-shelf course near the shore in Eastern Ct.
I have played all over the state of Ct. for the last 25 years.....AND to be honest I am very hard on courses when reviewing them or telling others about them.
I don't care if this course is in your backyard OR whether you need to travel from across the state or from R.I. even...... you need to make the trip to East Haddam. We were there recently and it is in the best shape I have ever seen it. I have no ties to this place at all so I have no reason to be biased, but if you want great natural scenery, elevation changes, and a solid test of golf, GO HERE
A terrific course
Pristine conditions, Wonderful facilities, very helpful and friendly staff. Wonderful facilities, very helpful and friendly staff While I did not play my best, I very much enjoyed playing this course. It is a bit pricey given its remote location however I was able to get a great deal via GolfNow. The overall quality make the inflated prices almost negligible. Am excited to make a return visit and hopefully will not have to play alone as it’s far more enjoyable to play with others
Top 10 on courses that I have played
Was extremely impress with The golf course design. Felt like I was in two different parts of new England. Front side first five holes like playing in Vermont. The last three hole like play a links course on cape cod. The old negative thing about the course are the houses. I am just an old school player and don't like houses on golf courses. This was a bucket list golf course for me and I can't wait to play the course again.
Absolutely gorgeous course
What a treat, if you haven't played here you must make it a point to do so. This course is perfectly manicured from tee to green and beyond. The fairways are like luxury carpet and the greens roll smooth and true. I have played nearly 100 golf courses public and private and this course ranks in my top 3, even out ranking its sister course Crumpin Fox in Mass. As soon as you sit in their golf carts ( softest seats I've ever sat on) you'll know why you came. So go ahead and treat yourself to this magnificent course. You won't be disappointed.
A MUST play!!
Fox Hopyard is a fabulous course. The layout is very interesting, challenging but fair at all levels. I took a cart but I normally walk ( it was in the 90’s the day I played) it did seem as if it would be a challenging walk, not overly hilly but there are some long walks between holes. The condition of the course, range and putting green are top notch and the entire staff wonderful and friendly
