We had a great weather day, the course is in great shape. Fast greens, nice fairways, thick juicy rough. You have to pay attention to the ball, it is very easy to lose it in the lush rough ( I think this is the reason play was so slow, people spent a lot of time looking for their ball).

If you have not played this course yet, you should, if you have play it again you will not be disappointed.

Tucked away in ct, this course is in great shape and has a nice design and layout. We got a bit of rain mid way thru but still finished, pace of play was great for a saturday morning. Tho not much to offer inside proshop as far as food or snacks and range balls were worst ive seen in a long time, machine was broken and kept dirty balls in a bucket for all to scoop on their own. Also they told me golfnow lied about the price and tried to upcharge me from 55 to 69, but in the end i paid 55. I would probably go back because the course was great ti play, but as said dont expect much more.

Given the forecast for rain, it wasn't as busy as it normally is, so we enjoyed a 4hr round.

The greens were still recovering from being aerated. other than that, the course was in great shape.

My only peeve was the lack of snacks / drinks available in the clubhouse, which I'm sure was due to a lack of traffic that day.

This is a course that has been greatly improved over the years and it shows! Challenging pin placements on the crests of undulating greens. Course is rounding into shape - in very good condition for the time of year given the hard winter and early spring cold.

I love this course. It’s well maintained and extremely fair but not too easy. The greens are currently aerated and not rolling at all like they normally would (fast) but in a few weeks this course will be 100 %

This is one of the best golf courses that I've ever played from GolfNow.com. The course condition was awesome. People were very friendly. They had a pitching green and a bunker area practice.

I highly recommended to all golfers.

Course is in good shape for such an early play. Already beginning to turn green in some areas. I always have a great experience here but was upset that the course was cheaper to play by calling directly.

It cost me $3.00 more to go through Golf Now.

Anyone remember when GN was a way to save money? Now it cost more and results of searches sometimes don't even have the price offered that comes up on the search results. I have seen a serious decline in using the site. Call direct.
