Hop Brook is a diamond in the rough

A quirky little course that requires shot making. It's short but a little tricky. A nice day out if it isn't too crowded.

Picturesque

Lying in the heart of Naugatuck Hop Yard is the most picturesque nine hole course I’ve ever played. Course conditions were great with even fairways and smooth greens. Nice layout with a couple of visually exciting holes. I plan to include this course in my summer schedule from now on.

pleasantly surprized

It had been over 25 years since I had played this course. I remembered it was a municiple course that wasn't all that good. I was shocked when my wife and I just played it. It was in excellent shape and we will definitely return.

Worth your two hours

Hop Brook Golf Course in Naugatuck is another Hidden Gem! I was able to play with a hot deal from GolfLogix, and the fact is that almost every round I play is purchased in that way; but in any event Hop Brook is in very good condition and nice walk. I am an average golfer so perhaps it doesn't meet the needs of the very talented but for folks out for a nice 2 hours playing golf at a nice easily pace you can do a lot worse than Hop Brook in Naugatuck. And the guy that is really nice too!

Beautiful 9-hole course

Bunkers are perfect, greens are in great shape and challenging, fairways are nice and the rough is well maintained so you don't totally destroy your game if you happen upon it!

Great value for money and very picturesque.

Many recent improvements

There have been several improvements at Hop Brook over the last couple years. Course Is in very good shape. Would definitely recommend giving it a try. They have a friendly staff led by PGA Professional Bryan Nixon.

Would have been nice to play

I have played Hop Brook several times over the last few years. Beautiful weather today so I stopped down to walk a quick 9 after work. I was told that leagues were ongoing and that they had no openings in the afternoons any weekday because of them. There was no one on the tee box and surely a single walker was going to outpace any foursome that showed up. But alas, I was turned away. Played Woodhaven in Bethany after a 20 minute drive. They were able to sneak me out in between a league (the guys were really cool about it) for $15. I will never go back to Hop Brook. For a course that is town owned...I really don't think you should be turning away business. Course is usually in average condition, but customer service is terrible. Similar Facebook reviews on their homepage. Skip it and play Oxford, Woodbridge CC, or Woodhaven instead
