Love this track

Course always well kept, Staff are the best, Other then 9th hole being 5 miles away (exaggeration) from the clubhouse I love this track.
I golf at other courses all the time and enjoy the diversity but I always coming back to this course.
Food is always good to great and I never wait long for a cold beer.

Central Connecticut Favorite

I was a member here several years back and return to play when I am back in Connecticut. The course is always well kept and managed. Never felt the need to roll a ball in the fairway. Layout is great in my opinion. A lot of great scoring opportunities on Par 5's and a few short Par 4's but also some real challenging Par 4's that make you think. With the Manchester Open and all of the league play, this place has shown that it can be a great test for Professionals and single digit handicaps while also being very playable for recreation play based on respective tee boxes. Restaurant staff was always friendly and very accommodating. The only two downsides I've noticed are pace of play and tee time availability on Club event or League days which is to be expected at nearly any course. The second is the driving range being located in the middle of the course and having to drive your cart out to it but given the lay of the land I'm not sure that there alternatives to change that. Nonetheless, I highly recommend visiting. Side note, growing up in competitive golf, I have met many highly ranked juniors, collegiate players and professionals who have specifically chosen Manchester Country Club as their choice of home course. because of the great conditions and layout.

Home Course

I have been playing this course since 1995 when I moved to CT. It gets better and better each year. There are some areas whereby dirt and/or rock can be brought in around some of the cart paths. Additionally some fill needs to be spread under some pine trees to cover the roots. All in all a wonderful course with great staff.

Course was in great shape for this time of year especially considering how much rain we have had. The greens were recently punched but that was announced well in advance before I booked the round.

We quit after playing 10 holes as we were already three and a half hours into the round and looking at darkness and a six hour round of golf. Very poor place of play and no ranger to keep it moving.

One our favorites

Worcester Tuesday Golf Group return to Manchester once again from beginning to end we enjoyed every aspect of this course .
Staff friendly, course conditions excellent we hope we can return some time later in the year. We had 20 players which sometimes could cause a little concern especially since they had a tournament also scheduled but they made it work everyone was happy we can't wait to go back.

Great Condition

Nice course very well kept. Greens firm but rolled true. Pace of play very slow, had an event ahead that probably was not timed well. But with deals great value for an above average course.

Course is in good shape

Course was in decent shape, but the greens were a bit overgrown and slow. Maybe because they could not mow it due to the rains.
And would be nice if people playing here fixed their ball marks. Not the Management's problem - more a reflection on the players.

Manchester course is in great shape

Manchester CC is in great shape. The fairways, traps, and greens were superior. Lunch on the patio was also excellent and fairly priced.
