Great Day

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.

Excellent day

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.

Gem of CT

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.

Great track

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

Place is legit. Would play here every day of the week if it wasn’t a 45 minute drive from me. Difficult layout but scoreable.

Putt at your own risk

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.

Great layout

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.

Spring Golf

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.

Fox Hopyard CC still very playable

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.

Slow round

All the elements were aligned for a perfect round, but it ended up taking almost 5 hours. Staff was initially attentive to our complaints.... but nothing happened, no marshals in sight during the back nine. A premium course like Fox Hopyard should be more attentive to pace of play. Course is in great shape, the fall colors are beautiful. The 19 hole restaurant is always a welcome refuge after a round.

Foxhopyard Golf Course

I grew up in CT and played alot of nice courses. Never played the Foxhopyard Golf Course in East Haddam CT and never knew existed. I decided to take the Orient Point ferry to New London CT and 40 minutes from the Foxhopyard Golf Course. The moment I pulled up to the course. Thought I was playing mountain golf. Not the case. The resteraunt On Top Of The Rock's was great on the Hill of views and walking down to the pro shop! Included bucket of range balls and course worth 63 on a hot deal not 100.00. Staff very pleasant in all departments and very nice and great service. Wish the weather was better but can't control that. The Course has 3 styles in one. Vermont and North Carolina and Ireland as well. Very pretty views! The course is diffult from all tees. Alot of cabbage where you have to shoot over that stuff and alot of creeks and water as well. Greens are challenging very hilly and tuff too read. Double check twice before putting. Only thing I can knock the course was. Not knowing the greens had been punched recently. But except it for this time of year. Definely a must play on your buck list of courses.

Feels like a Resort Course, Scenic, but.....

Excellent conditions, absolutely beautiful setting, beautiful clubhouse and buildings etc... (what you would expect for $100 greens fee). Played on a Wed. afternoon on a $55 Hot Deal, which is really the only way I'd play here. Although extremely well kept the course is loaded with waste areas and spots you have to carry to score. I'm not a short hitter (13 handicap) but it's still annoying and gets old. A bunch of 'target' golf, figuring out if you can hit driver or not b/c several holes you basically have to lay up from station to station etc... The course plays pretty long, even from the whites and the slope is way off in my opinion, as it's not an easy track. Worth a visit though on a hot deal for sure. Was empty for our midweek round, played in 3.5 hrs.
