needs maintenance

Played this course some ten years ago. As I remember years ago, it was in great shape. Time has taken its toll on the course and surroundings. Parking lot cratered. Bridges and buildings deteriorating. Overgrowth and trim neglected. fairways drying out and brown...most courses in CT green and lush. Some greens beginning to deteriorate. First golf cart I tried died in the parking lot...had to switch. Bunkers mostly weeds, pebbles and hardpan....very little if any sand. So sad to see a premier course after ten years of neglect. Only saviour was the Golf now hot deal for $25.

Above Average Public Course

Course was very well kept. The carts need to be replaced as they are clearly past their prime. The service at the facility was good. Overall worth the money.

Not well maintained. Cart paths heavily rutted. Swamp like conditions in some places. Greens aren’t very green. The good news: doesn’t cost much. One gets what you pay for.

Hello Shabby, thank you for your review. Our mission, everyday, to achieve the high standards that you are expecting at Blue Fox Run,. After many heavy rainfalls this spring, the course became extremely saturated in many areas and we apologize for this. These areas are now dry and ready for play. We are pleased to say the course is in great condition and we look forward fo seeing you soon and enjoying our well maintained course!

Decent for the money

Course was ok for the price and for the time of year ... I wish I was told that the blue course was closed prior to booking as I would of booked else where..I was told to go from red course to white course.. very basic lay outs on the red course not bad to open up on and the white course isn’t to bad but over all not very challenging and not worth the hour drive out there..no one really enforcing pace of play and I got stuck behind a few groups that were a bit stubborn to let me play through but was still able to finish my round before dark... may return to play again when the blue course is open but as of right now it will be in my no play list ..

Great conditions, even late in season

Few people were out playing on November 1st, so they got us right out and didn't even make my partner and I play with the other twosome due later.

Given the time of the year, the course was in fantastic shape. Well-manicured fairways with very few leaves present and tough but consistent greens. Grounds crew was out and have done a fantastic job.

Layout is good. Forgiving yet occasionally narrow. Got a great deal and seeing how it is, I'd probably pay a bit more next time.

Only issue I had was needing to try five carts before finding one that worked. Even that one didn't have an automatic emergency brake disengagement feature that's pretty common. Would play again!

Fall golf

The falling leaves makes fall golf a challenge. Even watching the ball land does not guarantee it will be found. Longer rough required skill to advance the ball. It is a fair course that tests ones whole game.

Beautiful Course

Beautifullly maintained. Short par 4’s but challenging greens sorrounded by deep bunkers. Will definitely play it again.

White and Blue

We played the white course in under 2 hours. The course was in good shape. We then went to the Blue course where we had a solo playing in front of us and he apparently had paid for two rounds because he was hitting a minimum of 2 balls. The threesome in front of him was also .slow so no point in a confrontation.The pace on the back was slow and hence the average rating. The greens were also recently aerated which would have been nice to discuss ( maybe go to the red course)?

A few greens on the red course are in rough shape, the 8th hole is the worst. That is the only knock I have, I'll be back soon.
