Friendly staff- challenging course - a good time - Fairways were good- a good mix of par 3's and a few long par fives- I am looking for a place to replace Lost Brook in Norwood. I'll be back .

9 hole municipal muni built on a capped landfill, manages to have your attention despite lack of length. It is generally narrow and has precise targets. Greens are small and well guarded by bunkers, rough or water. When the green looks accessible the fairway usually slopes dramatically towards the worst gnarly rough around. The first time I played it I was annoyed: each subsequent round reduced the annoyance and increased my appreciation of its diabolical features.

Played and reviewed this course prior to this round and was again rewarded with a nice time. Greens were recently spiked and top dressed but still rolled great...should be in prime condition by another week. Staff took exception to my late arrival from traffic issues and was out with no delay. Everything was just A W E S O M E ! ! ! Thank you again!

This course, though a relatively short 9, demonstrates a management who have their priorities in good order. The clubhouse is spare and may actually be a double wide mobile home, but EVERYTHING else about the place is first rate. A driving net (never seen one before, but very useful amenity), an accommodating and chill atmosphere, friendly, helpful staff (warned us to hustle out to avoid a junior league following us), and once out on the course, a leisurely, and well-paced play, inspiring us to be especially generous about encouraging a play-through.

Most important, the kids are being taught well, given the shape of the course. Green divots repaired routinely, traps raked, fairways watered immediately behind us, just a completely satisfying golf atmosphere.

Hadn't played this course in many years. Heard it was taken back and is now managed by the town of Natick. The course was in great shape and the course is challenging for all levels. The greens were pretty fast. Overall a good course and with the Golf Now discounts it is a great course.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Course was in good contdition with tricky, fast greens. Layout was fairly easy and a blast to play. Don't miss right... OOB or edge of the capped landfill is right on every hole. I would recommend getting a cart: the hike between 3 and 4 and 8 and 9 is long and you have a massive hill to climb to get to the 9th tee.

Would recommend!

The course itself is struggling from the drought. That being said, greens and tee boxes are in great shape for what they are. Course is easy, relaxing. Staff is there to keep pace , but to ensure everyone is happy. Will play again

I've been playing this course for years....and have always told others that they maintain the course very nicely. Hadn't played there this year but was shocked when we got to the second hole to find nothing of a fairway...all burned out...like rolling golf ball across a parking lot. and that carried through most of the remaining holes. Greens were fine (very slow and cut high). I know we've had a dry summer but municipal courses aren't as burned out as Sassamon. Something must have happened here but not worth playing right now. The GM retired too...too bad...great guy.

Played here for the first time yesterday and had a blast. This is a shorter 9 hole course, the par is 32 and there are 5 par 3's. There is a mix of straightforward and more interesting holes that border a big cliff (I think 2, 3, and 9). Better keep it straight on these holes or say goodbye to your ball. Conditions were great on the greens and tee boxes, fairways were burnt out in spots but acceptable. Greens were a bit faster and very challenging. One negative is no driving range, only a net to hit into but they do have a practice green. I will definitely be back.

This place is a nice hidden gem. The staff goes out of their way to make your experience pleasant. Conditions are just outstanding and I would recommend it for a pleasing nine-hole jaunt. Close proximity to Metro Boston and Natick is a pretty little New England town. Send wife and family to the Malls - play here - pick them up - can have it all done - round trip 4 to 5 hours.

Not the longest 9 hole track around, but course is always in great condition and the greens roll true. Staff is always friendly and accommodating. Course can be walked, but the walk from 8th green to 9th tee is a haul up a steep hill. One of my favorite courses in the area.
