worst round of the year

Slow, untalented course of players. No sense of place of
play. A 1&1/2 hour round turned into a 3 hour unpleasant
experience for 9 holes. Next time avoid sunny August days!

Not bad but...

Myself and a friend played today and had a 7am tee time, the young lady at the desk was great she helped us get all checked in and gave us our cart key and such. But we were disappointed to have to wait on probably half the holes because they had to manually turn on and off the irrigation. It wouldn’t have been so bad if we didn’t have to wait 5-10 to tee off and then getting backed up because of it.

Too Many Groups Allowed On the Course

This is a 9-hole course that plays on the short side, so it quickly gets backed up. Last night was no different. Too crowded and slow. It took 2 hours for two of us to play 6 1/2 holes, and only one of us played the last 2 1/2 holes. Picked up on the 7th hole and headed to Giovanni's, which is a hidden gem here. If we had played the entire course, it would have taken more than 2 1/2 hours. That's just ridiculous. I know that courses don't like to say "no" to walk-ins, but you have to do it to preserve the experience for those of us who do take the time to make a tee time.

We work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and to best control pace allowing everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve, and we are glad to see you rated the course conditions to be great during your game. Thank you for playing Minnechaug Golf Course. We hope to see you again soon.

Fun course! Would play again.

This course was great! Enjoyed the mix of driver and iron holes. Only down fall to this course was having to take a very long walk to hole 8 and then to 9. I would definitely come back and play again.

Best value for the buck!

Granted this review is subjective I'll still reply.
I enjoy this course. For the price of me and three others + a cart for 9 holes. It's unbeatable! The grounds are beautiful with a good amount of variation.

Great Budget Golf

Being a budget golfer I always look for the best deals. This course really fit that category. Conditions were better than I have seen at other comparable priced courses. Pace was fairly slow and play was congested, however that does not bother me. Overall I an very happy with it and will definitely return for another round!

Challenging nine holes

Each hole offers a challenge including out of bounds, strategic trees and bunkers, pitched fairways, island greens, woods and marsh grasses - easily raise scores from errant shots. For the most part the greens are in excellent condition, but like most public courses are slow. Subtle breaks can easily raise the total putts.

If one can get through the first two holes in par, thank the miracle gods. A strategic tree blocks approaches from center and right while out of bounds looms on the left of the first hole. A valley before the green can stop the ball from running up onto the green where slope puts a premium on a lose approach shot. The second hole offers marsh grass and woods right and left with out of bounds penalties. From elevated tee a long ball hitter can end up in one of two bunkers. The green is elevated and relatively flat. A tree guards it on the right, and links grass on hillside on the left. Chance for a birdy exists on the par five third hole. The three par three holes guarded by marsh grass or ponds put the premium on accurate tee shots.

Enjoy. If is a terrific value,
