A travesty what this course has become
This course has a beautiful layout and setting. It makes me very sad that the powers in charge has let this course get into the shape it is in. It does not appear that they have spent a dime on maintenance the whole season. There was not one bunker that was in playable condition. There is no sand and ruts and water everywhere. The tee boxes are terrible. They are so beat up I don't think the tee markers have been changed in months. Did not see a ranger on a Saturday. It was cart paths only and the foursome in front of us were driving all over the course. No one said a thing. Employees were very pleasant but my friends and I will never play here again.
Not as good as it had been...condition issues
I like the course...the layout...the length (from the blues at 6665, not the blacks at 7186 that I'm too old to handle). This used to be one of my top five playable courses in the (extended) area. Condition issues, however, have moved it down significantly. The fairways have too many unreplaced divots. The sand traps have too many rocks and not enough sand. The greens have too many divots and way too many spike marks...more than I've ever seen on a decent course in my 50+ years of golf. As mentioned in another review, there is a lot of poison ivy in the rough. Away from the condition issues, this is a good course that rewards good shots and penalizes bad shots. By picking the correct tees, you should have to use all your clubs, as in it's neither a lot of driver wedges nor a lot of driver fairway woods. I check the box saying that I would not recommend the course to a friend, but I would recommend it with the understanding about the conditions. Hopefully, they get better.
this is a nice course but they just plugged the greens and putting was horrible, I wish GN would notify me when booking of this type of course maintenance, then I can wait a week to play. you couldn't hit in a 2' put the ball was going all over the place. but I have played here before and it is usually in good shape
. play it but call and make sure the greens are good
This is the third time I played this course this year. It was cart path only because of the rain the day before. My only complaint was the traps were totally destroyed. Don’t know if if was because of the storm that happened. We had to take our balls out of the traps every time we went in one.
I love this course. It is really pretty and a challenge.
Condition was disappointing
Challenging course made more difficult by below expectations conditions. Poison ivy lined fairways, burned out areas and hard packed dirt traps. Needs work to get back to its former top ratings.
Not handicapped friendly
The attitude of the clubhouse attendant was dismissive when I suggested that there are ways to allow egress for disabled folks on some of the very difficult sloping holes. Totally dismissive, could use some training on how to deal with simple question other than "we can't do that". Really.
A Top Public Course in CT
Of your a real golfer this is one of the best public tracks in CT. Especially for the value. I’ve played all over the northeast and this is truly a great golf course as far as the style and layout and you will not find a better price for this type of course.
family and friend foursome
the course was in great condition and the greens were rolling fine. Very scenic with a mixture of straight, blind, and holes that you will need to shape your shots and position on doglegs. All new electric carts this year and the traps are getting attention. There is a nice little grille room for you to meditate over a poor round or talk about your great shots over a sandwich and a couple of drinks. All in all, you will enjoy your experience
1st this season
Played after local Open tournament. Greens and edges were cut to reflect this and made for very challenging round. More so than usual! Pace of play was great and staff was very attentive & friendly. Quite a number of long holes and challenging on back 9, not for the beginner!
Nice course, long round
Well over 5 hour round. Rangers tried to push, but to no avail
Course should have been at least blown off from the big storm so lots of little debris. Fairways needed cutting. Other than that it’s a tough course but a good challenge. Tough greens
Course was very good condition
The greens are large but very tricky due to undulations and contours. Need to place drives into fairway locations to set up iron shots into the green
Fun and enjoyable to play
One of the best
I would rate this course one of the top five I’ve ever played. The greens were difficult with all the undulations but were in great shape. Can’t wait to play it again.
Second favorite course in CT
Oxford greens is excellent. Always clean, well kept and the holes are challenging. No disappointments here.
