This course was clean, neat and kept up. Very professional for a par three.

I had brought my 14 year son with me on that day. It was a great par three that I never knew was there. It was a great find.

Makes you pay for bad tee shots

It's 9 holes and it is challenging from the "first cut" and basically impossible from the rough. If you hit fairways, it isn't a long course by any means, even from the back tees. Fairways decent but not spectacular. If you are just off the edges, you can play this rough okay. But my lord, a few more yards left or right and it's crazy deep and basically unplayable. Too easy to lose balls, even within 8-10 yards from the fairway. 7 of the 9 greens were very good (but slow), and the maintenance crew was working hard at 7am when I played. I will play it multiple times because it forces you to focus on find fairways and be sharp. Tee boxes need to be fixed. Cart paths are really bad. But cheap, so you get what you pay for and knowing that expectation, it's an okay round.

Great Value, Nice Course

A nine hole course. Played here for the first time then returned the next day for another 9 and I will be back many, many times. Great thing about this course is that it is less than 30 minutes from the Hartford routes 91-84-2-3 interchanges and just 5 minutes off a Route 2 exit. Rates are very reasonalbe. Paid $20 w/ cart through my Golfing Magazine membership. A good value though senior rate is $21 weekdays so I only saved a buck. Course is well maintained (although the 1st cut was high and balls were lost when they should have been found). Fairways are wide, sand traps minimal, rough between fairways mostly mature trees without junk under them, greens mostly flat with some back-to-front slope, layout is challenging and staff is great, especially Cary in the pro shop. Short first hole could lure player to think course is a piece of cake, which it isn't. Most early holes are pretty flat but later holes have some elevation changes. Island green on the par 3 fourth is their signature hole. TPC Sawgrass island green is easy compared to this hole. Shot to green could be over or near a fairway tree. Yardage ranges from 100 to 145 dependign on tee box used. Forunately green is big, although the margin of error is small. Club house is very simple with minimal amenities. Course has the feel of a family-owned facility; friendly, competitive and inviting. I like it.

A great course at a great value

Great variety and memorability throughout. Conditions were excellent as was the scenery. Very friendly and professional staff. Would happily play there again any chance that I get. Also offer excellent PGA private instruction along with group and beginner/intermediate weekly clinics and summer junior camps.

Not a bad course for the value if you're walking. Unfortunately its only a 9 hole course and the hole locations are almost always the same. Wish the greens were more challenging.
