Friendly staff, course has intelligent layout with narrow fairways and some difficult par 3's that make for a challenging round. Fairways and greens were in good shape, some of the tee boxes were pretty rough. Good views.

Use to be my favorite course in Connecticut. It had declined severely in last 15 years. Now on way back. Bunkers redone. Fairway and greens are in good shape. Greens rolling true but slow. They seem to have plan. Restaurant is excellent. Food and bar great.

I’d highly recommend Crestbrook Park for intermediate to good golfers. The staff is friendly, the course forgiving, and the pace of play fantastic. Our round took only 3 1/2 hours. We ate at the restaurant that was just great. We’ll definitely return.

Despite growing up about 35 minutes away, I'd never gotten around to playing Crestbrook Park while living in Connecticut. My interest in Geoffrey Cornish's designs spurred me to visit with my dad while visiting recently, and I'm glad I made it.

Crestbrook Park isn't going to win any big awards, but with its friendly staff (helmed by local native Jan Wivestad) and consistent stream of local play, it seems primed to continue to fill a need for pleasant, affordable golf in mid-western Connecticut. The course's virtues and defense come in the form of some elevation changes and at times scary-steep greens, which are fairly simple on the front but get a bit more characterful on the back. It's a solid blue-collar test of golf in a nice park setting.

Will seriously think about not playing there again. There was no starter so groups who were on the tee later tried to cut in front of us . Very slow play,four groups on the par four eleventh hole no ranger available to get the four golfers clowning around on the green straightened out . Ended up being five hour round. No fun!!!!!!!!

I like to play Crestbrook from time to time. I find it to be a great course to get my game together when I come to the US, twice a year. The course is in good shape this summer, and the pace tends to be quite fast. Not a World-class PGA course, but it doesn't pretend to be. A great place for a laid back afternoon with friends, and certainly a good option within the regional public courses.

What a waste of a potentially great layout. The town obviously doesn't care about golfers coming back. The fairways were void of grass. I know we had a drought this year but I played this course 2 years ago and it was worse. The greens were horrible as well. I will not come back even if it were free. The only nice thing I can say about the experience was that the staff in the pro shop was very nice. Never again for me
