I arrived at the course at 10:30 a.m.for my tee time at 10:42 a.m. and the group I was going to end up playing with was already out on the course playing the first hole. Which caused me to miss even getting a score for the very first hole. If a tee time is at 10:42 a.m. then it’s at 10:42 a.m. plain and simple. I don’t care if it was extra busy that day. I would understand if I was late but I was early.

Rural little country course. Slow play we were paired with a guy and gal that were beginners but nice people. Pace destroyed our games but great weather on a Sunday afternoon and a $20 greens fee soothed our egos. Give it a chance, nice family owned "country" course.

It was obvious that they do not like people who use GOLF NOW! we were early , we asked if we could go out and he said no you have to wait till the right time. But no one was around? he mentioend that You will be a 4 some. Told him that we were beginners and didnt want to ruin anyone elses game. he said you wont. 4 some.He was not cooperative and felt like he hated golf now players. Do not go if you purchase from golf now, especially if you want to play solo or a twosome. because you wont. And how about getting new carts. it seems the newer carts go to members, everyone esle gets the 1980s carts. Not impressed sorry to say. Good luck

The weather was perfect but the course was in bad shape, hopefully due to spring conditions. Driving on the fairways was like running an off-road obstacle course. They were full of moguls, lumps, bumps and tree roots. And the dirt/gravel/wood chip cart paths were no better. They were potholed and full of large stones. Our golf cart suspension really got a workout.

As for the course itself, it can be very challenging with quite a few funky holes and others that will test your courage, skills, shot making and club selection.

The staff was very pleasant especially Suzy in the bar who gave me a lesson in beer selection. The pro shop attendant also helped an average golfer play the first hole. A cross fairway stream 200 yards off the white tees is tempting to carry but he advised laying up to 180-190 yards which I did but my partner didn't and ended up wet.

I will be back in a few months to see if they lumps and bumps were just frost heaves and the cart paths were smoothed out.

We had an excellent time. It is so cool that you come back to the clubhouse 4 times....6th/9th/12th/18th.

There is no other course that I know of with that.

Kathy and I love coming here...she loves it here...woodsy/country-like/stonewalls/real old Ct.

I have been playing here for over 20 yrs. The pro is excellent and his staff is welcoming. We ended up playing with a couple from Boston and had a blast with them.

Thanks again Skungamaug.

I played this golf courae a few times in the last couple years. The course conditions were satisfactory and the pace of play was good for a weekend round. The weather was nice and the course was busier than expected. The price per round is great, if you search out a “Hot Deal.” The course layout is somewhat confusing, but playable for all golfers. The fairways were a bit wet, and my golfball plugged on quite a few holes. This is a great course for a practice round or beginner golfer.
