Was pleasantly surprised that the course was fairly nice. Greens are very difficult but the green speed was a bit slower so did fine. If greens were cut for a faster speed, it would be very difficult to put, fast with a lot of break. Facilities are basic but an enjoyable round of golf.

Challenging and picturesque, this family owned course is well worth the travel. It's probably the best nine whole course in the state. Go around twice, you'll need to in order to figure out the greens.

Great deal through GolfNow for 1st 9 of the season. Course in very good shape.. Had not played here in a decade and enjoyed the layout. Tough greens but fair. Bit inconsistent but in very good shape. Keep your ball below the hole..

Staff was friendly. Very nice.. One strange thing.. It was a Sunday afternoon and I arrived 45 minutes early. Empty tee box at #1 and not a soul in sight. Starter came by and had me wait until my tee time in case some one else showed up to pair me with so I waited 15+ minutes on an empty tee box with an empty hole waiting for ?.... After a while starter (who was very nice) came back and said I could go alone.. An hour and 10 minutes later I was off the course.. No idea why I was held up on an empty course. Maybe because it was a GolfNow tee time ? Who knows...

Regardless, would I go back? For sure... Nice fun course with lot's of chances to make shots.. And staff was very nice just strange to be held up for 20 minutes waiting for no one....

The course greens were in a great shape. Putts rolled like it was in prime season.

The layout is very challenging with the undulating greens. Traps appeared in good shape, racks were out but fortunately I didn't have to use any rakes.

I teed off around 350ish. Caught a single on hole two and paired up at hole 6 we paired up with 2some behind us.

For March 31st here in New England it was a gorgeous day. Windy and cold but with the sun it was gorgeous hence the many players on the course.

Highly recommend this course for anyone. Appropriate for any skill level.

My friends and I have been playing this course for years. It's a good 9 hole course with a good layout and very challenging greens. Nice folks run it and keep it up well. My only complaint is flying gnats that show up each summer and are there for a long time. I don't know if there is a solution but they're a nuisance.

Played here on 9/23/17 weather was perfect the course was in great shape the greens were some of the best I have ever played on but.... the BUGS were out of control. Swarms of bugs all over course...if you play bring a LOT of BUG Spray if you forget ask the starter they have it with them. Will play again maybe when it gets cooler and not so buggy.

If it weren't for the last few holes where we got backed up, I would have given 5 stars for my experience. If you have the opportunity, Woodhaven is a must play. The greens belong at the top 100 courses in the country. Will return.
