Hidden gem

This is by far the best par 3 course I have ever played. The scenery is beautiful, the conditions are exceptional, and the variety of holes is refreshing. Golfnow "hot deals" pricing was just the icing on the cake. I will play here whenever I need a quick golf "fix".

Nice short course

Nice short course. Tee boxes not level in many holes but not too big of a deal since teeing with irons.

Decent cheap course

Pros: -$5 plus fees per person for 9 holes -course in decent condition, kept up Cons: - Pro shop staff member, older gentleman, had a bad attitude and almost seemed to try and dissuade me from playing saying there would be a 30 minute wait...I said I was in no rush, he said it may even be more than 45. Still not a problem for me -kids on the course- the course rules state no one under the age of 11 (13 without an adult) is permitted to play the course. there were groups of 10-12 year olds hitting balls in the woods, laying down on the course, extremely slow play, and I am a patient person. Overall, worth playing one time if it is not busy, small par 3 easy course

Beautiful nine hole par 3, very well maintained.

This was the nicest par 3 nine hole course I have ever played. Small greens and narrow holes make for challenging shots. Pristine greens. I'll be back.

Nice 9 Hole Course with some chllenges.

Quick track to take when time is limited. Great for working on the short game. Nothing longer then 220, so you do not need the woods. Woods and short is the name of the play.

Very Friendly Staff

My daughter and I played this course last Sunday. The gentleman in the club house was very friendly. He was more than happy to accommodate us as we arrived late because of traffic. The course is a great place to take a beginner golfer. It is a par 3 very easy for my daughter. She had a blast! Thanks

fun par 3 for beginners

This is a great little course to fine tune your irons or to bring put a young golfer. Greens aren't overly difficult but roll and pose a challenge.

wonderful setting

Beautiful course but if you can't hit straight you can lose a lot of balls. Good course for making you work hard. Absolutely beautiful course.

Hidden Gem

This course is easily the best par 3 course I have ever played. Kept up beautifully, greens and tee boxes in excellent shape. Picturesque. Looks like a country club course, in miniature! About half the holes are short, but look out for #6. When played from the tips, at over 260 yards, around trees and over water, its more like a short par 4!

One of the best Par 3 Courses in CT

This is one of the best Par 3 courses in CT. Very well maintained. It is a challenging course. One long par 3 around 200-255, and a short one around 90 yards or so. For $5 bucks you can't beat it.

Surprisingly nice course

a great practice course. I went out on a drizzly saturday and a sunny, gorgeous sunday afternoon. Both days had about 4-5 cars in the parking lot and very brisk play out on the course. The greens were nicely maintained, spotted, but no ball marks. Rough was thick, fairways were in great shape. Joe the guy who works the clubhouse was friendly and so was his dog Reba. I was able to get in about 50 holes in 4 hours. great practice spot.
