Great Experience in East Hartford
I played solo on Friday. Teed off at 6:30 and was done by 9:00, with a cart. Course was nice, peaceful, and the greens were in unbelievable shape. I will be back and will recommend East Hartford Golf Course.
Great for October
The course was in wonderful shape for this time of year. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
On the come back
I had heard this course was in bad shape but we took a chance anyway and were pleasantly surprised. It's still on the comeback but was in decent shape. The greens were very nice, but the rough and tee boxes were a little weedy and sparse in some some areas. I would definitely play this course again.
Course continues to improve, staff has put special emphasis on the conditioning from tee to green. Had a great time on Father's Day with my oldest Son who doesn't get out as much as he would like.
Billy Casper Run? Hmmm
The long and the short is that the greens are the best part of the course and the rest needs some serious work. Granted it is November but if you've played other area courses in the past 30-60 days most of them are in far better shape. This course has potential, it just needs to be tapped into in the years to come and IMHO the prices should reflect what they have for a product now.
I totally agree. There's much more work to be done to justify the prices.
I hadn't played here in a couple of years as the previous operators had left the course in terrible shape. Billy Casper golf has done a great job bringing it back. The greens are in great shape.
Absolutely ZERO VALUE here
Ok I've played here alot,and when a round would cost 25$ w/cart we get out 3-5 times a week,no that this new snobby Corp took over $38 a man during the week day explains the empty parking lot, it's a joke they rather have an empty course instead of charge a reasonable fee,the men's club is pretty much non existent,hopefully the town finds a better group to run this place
good course and value
I played this course for the first time saturday morning. We had 2 groups of 3 players and the pace of play was good. Course is fairly flat and wide fairways, but greens are fast and challenging
Defintatley now a playable course
It's May 5th, the weather is unusually cold and breezy . We played under spring conditions: wet fairways (rain last few days), bare spots on the fairways and tee boxes and greens just growing in. We were not expecting perfect conditions this early in the season. It was still a good day for golf and the course was very playable.
We started 15 minutes before our tee time (weather was iffy), walked 18 for $20 (senior rate) and finished well under 4 hours. I recommend this course for walking as it is basically flat. The course is just coming back from winter. Reseeding and fertilizing is noticeable. Winter debris has been picked up, fairways and rough have been mowed.
No complaints but two small suggestions. A sign would be helpful on the 12th tee box stating the distance to clear the right dogleg. Also, directions from the 15th green to the 16th tee box. Many newbies head for the 18th tee.
Staff was terrific and pro shop has been revamped.
I'd definitely say this course has turned the corner, after many years of miss-management, and is well on it's way back to being a very good course to play. It's a fun course that I recommend for beginners, juniors/seniors, ladies, walkers, practice rounds, a quick 9 holes, leagues, locals and as a confidence builder.
Great Course in the works
The green have greatly improved for putting since new management. Plus, many areas are being work on for improvement like cutting down some trees, new drainages on the fairway, reconstructing tee areas. The course is fairly forgiving. Their carts are a little slow and the pace of play can be slow, too. If the course continue with their rate of improvement, it will be great course. I haven't try the dining area yet.
Very friendly staff, very accommodating nice course overall. Fairways could use a little water and grass seed. Carts very slow
This course was nearly run into the ground by the last management group, but the new management (Billy Casper Golf) has made great strides to bring it back. The greens while rather slow were rolled flat and rolled true. The course has a very interesting layout with 18 unique holes including the well protected 190 yard par three 11th and the 90 degree dogleg 12th hole which requires a accurate 220 yard shot off the tee to clear the corner which is well protected by 80 ft high oak trees. Some of the par 5's are reachable in two with a big drive. There is some forgiveness off the tees in that you can hit into parallel fairways with little or no disadvantage. Over all an enjoyable challenging course.
Nice value for money
Nice public course, very friendly, a 4 some let us play thru.
you get what you pay for
Ok conditions, and a fairly decent test of skill. Course gets very water logged with a clay rich soil. Pace of play is normal for a municipal.
This course needs lots of work
The fairways are burnt out, the greens where recently aerated. Like I said before the course needs some work. I play every week first time at East Hartford this year, and last time.
Slow But Fun
The course was the perfect difficulty for beginner/moderate players. Greeted by a friendly staff member and paired with two great guys for 18. The only downside was the group in front of us was moving at an extremely slow pace but played just fast enough to not let us play through. Added about 40 minutes to our game, but overall fantastic. Course was in rough conditions but it was clearly visible that they were working on improving it.
Stuck in nutreal
This course has made strides the last year or two but I was a little disappointed in the conditions. The area needs rain, I understand that but some of the tee boxes here are unacceptable. Almost can't tee it up on a few of them. Greens were decent but this course still needs some work. It was trending in the right direction but I was a little disappointed with the overall condition of the course. Same trouble areas. But for $20 with cart its still a deal.
Average municipal course.
This course is an old lay out. Some nice holes. The tee boxes are ok, some are in good shape, some are worn down. The fairways need water, lots of brown spots. The greens were in very good shape and putted well. The staff was very friendly. Google maps brought us to the driving range about 2 miles away.
Afternoon in heaven
Being a 90 degree day, aside from a few beginners, only serious players were golfers were on the course. Newbies need to understand letting people play through. Once past, I enjoyed an open golf course. Some trees have been removed from tougher holes making the course more forgiving. Played 18 holes in just over 3 hours, which was a record for me. Haven't played here much, recently, but really enjoyed this round and will try to visit more often!!
