It's ok to play if you are in the nearby.
But not to drive on hour.

One of the best

First time playing this course, drove from nyc. Really enjoyed this course. The layout was really fun, a couple holes that are drive-able, was just a really fun course overall. The conditions were absolutely excellent. Tee boxes, faiways, rough, greens were all in great condition. Greens were in excellent condition, fast and true. Bunkers were very nice and soft sand. For this time of year I was shocked to see a public course in such good of condition. I’ll be getting out there again before seasons end and you should too.

Good Greens

Course was in good shape - aerations were almost totally healed.. Barely noticeable. Nice layout with some challenging holes. Would gladly play more often if it were easier to get to from Eastern CT.

Great Municipal Course

Hard to get a tee-time as a non-resident, but a very nice layout and friendly staff. Course was in great condition, especially the greens. Pace of play was very slow but understandable given that it was before a holiday. Will definitely try to get back.

Absolutely great!

Went with a buddy for the first time, and we both left thinking it is the best public course we have ever played. Very nice layout, with very quick, but fair greens. We both 3 putted more than we ever have, but were not discouraged and will be back soon.

True Players Course

Very good conditions for very wet May. This is a true players course, precision iron play is necessary. Only a hand full of driving holes, anywhere in the rough is a double bogey. Good tough course for more skilled players.

Nice course

I enjoyed this course until it started storming and we had to get off around the 11th hole. Golf Now’s weather policy sucks too so couldn’t get any money back. The greens were extremely fast when I played and there was a lot of dog legs right (which I enjoy). All in all fun course.
