Tee time only don't guarantee your spot
Had a 1:30 tee time from golf now website. Clubhouse attendant was rude making us tee off at 1:20 instead. I showed him the confirmation and he was a complete jerk saying it would put his friends out place. Be warned when booking online as it does not mean anything.
Best in Connecticut
Love the course. Play when price is good. I drive 1 1/4 hour to play there and well worth it!
Design is quirky; Greens are silly.
Was very much looking forward to my first round st Fox Hopyard, having grown up in Connecticut but never played. I have to say that we were somewhat disappointed given our high expectations. The course conditions and amenities are great. Tee to green, I think the course is solid. Some interesting par 4s and par 5s. All of the par 3s are really long from the blues.
My problem with the course is the greens. They are (I) stupidly designed and (ii) subject to terrible pun placements. First, the undulations on the green are just plain silly. I don’t know if they were trying to protect the yardage of the course, but there are many points on these greens where good shots will be penalized. And that is no way to enjoy a round of golf. My bigger problem was the pin placements. Whoever set it up our day put at least 6 pins within 2 yards of the edge of the green, in places where it was absolutely impossible to stop the ball from the wrong side. Honestly, they were the worst/most penal pin placements I’ve ever seen in my entire life. It’s insane to me that a good course could and would be ruined by poor decision making by the staff.
I probably won’t return anytime soon, which is disappointing. Still, a solid track at an okay price point.
Top Course in area .
Nicest course in area by far . A bit pricey if you pay walk up rate but it’s probably worth it . Conditions are perfect . Course is tough but fair . Beautiful views . Staff is friendly . Plenty of facilities . Worth coming out of the way to play .
We had a great day at Fox Hopyard. It started with the pro shop being fantastic. Pro matched my buddy and I with another twosome that he thought would make a great foursome. He was spot on. We all had a blast. The pro started the day off right and it kept getting better.
The course was in fantastic shape with the greens really fast and true. Fairways were cut short and in great shape. We had a great back nine match with the other two guys that came down to the 18th. So much fun.
We got the hot deal of the day for around $50 and couldn’t have been any happier.

This is a really good layout, with very challenging situations for your short game. The staff was extremely friendly and most accommodating. Every hole is very different with a great mix of sort and long par fours. The only flaw was the bunkers were very rough, but they were working on several of them. One in our party also used rental clubs, which were brand new Rouge Callaways. Overall great experience!
Like everyone else has said this place is awesome course,definitely a must play in CT.
I really liked the layout.it was challenging but playable.
Ron and Brian are very nice and helpful.
I'll be back again this summer.
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 playing this course, very fair, staff helpful and pleasant.
Fox hopyard is always great time !
You know when you see that first hole a gentle slider to the right that you are in for a treat. My friends often travel 2.5 hours to play 36 there. Great par 3’s and fun par 5’s. The only hole im not crazy for is 7 but maybe because it’s pretty hard!
Great lunch - get the tee time deal with meal. You won’t be disappointed at the Fox.. Oh they even handed out 25 off coupons because the pace of play was a little slow one day.
Must play this course
If there’s such a thing as a perfect golf course this is it. Spectacular experience. Just play there. You will be thrilled.
Visited again after 5 years
Well maintained, greens sweet, ( and rolled !) Better than I remembered it from 5 years ago. Staff freindly and helpful. Played in 1:45, single in a cart first one off.
Love the course , Staff proffesional and friendly. Restaurant and bar awesome. Little pricy to play a lot but will go every year
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.
East Haddam, CT GEM
I've played this course several times. It is kept in great condition and allows for a "links" type experience. Great layout and often challenging pin placements. Highly recommend especially when Golf Now has hot deals.
Fantastic day of golf. Every aspect of the round was top notch, from the conditions to the staff and even the golf carts were the nicest I have ever seen. We drove about an hour to play but all four of us agreed we will be back soon.
