A retro throwback with good bones

I grew up on a Geoffrey Cornish course, and while experience has showed my the limitations of his work, there's an endearing simplicity to it that I believe makes it underrated, especially as part of the supposed "Dark Ages" of course design.

Crestview is a former private club that has seen better days, but I enjoyed playing it and hope it can be spared the ravages of recent history in the industry. It was in good shape and the stately, meandering design charmed me, though it could do with some tree removal and better mowing lines.

Do Not Pay to Play this golf course

The conditions of this golf course were a complete embarrassment. The rough was uncut, the fairways were full of tire ruts and uncut long grasses. The bunkers had no sand and were completely full of mud and water. The water hazard was overcome with algae and the cart paths were completely non-navigable. This property is in complete disrepair and it is obvious that the owners either do not have the money to maintain it or they just don't care . It is a complete embarrassment that they took my money. DO NOT PLAY.

White tees play a little long at 6,300 +. Longer par 4s but some short par 5s. Greens in great shape with lots of break. Beware of cart paths - horrible. Use the grass instead.

Great greens

Course is challenging, but very fair. The greens are famyastic and run at close to an 11. The only knock on tje course is that the bunkers need new sand.

Great Time

We had a great day playing Crestview on 9/23. The pro shop staff was friendly and helpful. The course was beautiful with some of the best greens ive played on all year. Challenging but not overly difficult for the mid-handicapper and 5 tee boxes so the tee box can be played that's right for you. Overall a great course that I would love to play again.

Crestview treat

Crestview is one of the finest courses in Western Massachusetts with friendly staff and ideal course conditions. We love playing there although it's a little bit more expensive than other courses in the area. GolfNow makes the course more affordable for retirees and young adults. My only criticism is that the cart paths are in terrible condition and should be replaced.

Deceptively tough

Very nice Geoffrey Cornish track, but not promoted very aggressively. Beautiful fairways, rough cut fairly high, but generally open. Bunkers were really hard and packed sand - for this price I would have expected these to be fluffed up at least. The greens were beautiful, well groomed and fast, but very sloped and somewhat undulating - extremely hard to read. My group of bogey golfers saw ONE par and ONE birdie all day, mostly attributable to the greens. For public playability, I'd recommend letting the greens get a little slower so missed putts don't slide off the green.

Solid course

This was my second time playing Crestview. Overall the course was in solid shape. It was after recent rain so a little wet in spots but overall it was good. The entire back 9 was top dressed, so putting through sand was a challenge, but overall I wouldn't say an absolute negative. I had a 7:10am tee time and was by myself, joining another group, but I was there early and the pro let me go out by myself. Played in about 3 hours, two balls on most holes. Course was not overly challenging though, played the black tees and didn't hit it off the tee that great, but still was able to score. I would definitely recommend the course for value.

nice layout

played here today for the first time. all employees (bag assistant, starter & pro shop staff were extremely friendly. conditions were great, even for early in year. greens were smooth and rolled true. fairways were good with minimal divot holes. the rough was rough as it was uneven and hadn't appeared to be cut in a while. bunkers were hard pack and a little rocky, though playable. cart paths showed their age (but not going to the course to ride the cart) so not a big deal. we only saw a water cooler on hole 10 and no beverage cart, which seemed unusual on a sunday.
will definitely play here again as course will probably be in better condition once everything grows in.

Crestview Review

The course was in very good condition considering drought. Greens were excellent, layout is challenging. The pace of play was great. I would recommend this course to my golfing friends especially with the golfnow pricing.

This course needs work

Poor starter , felt like I was being rushed to play . my golf cart was in very poor condition , no GPS on golf cart , the yardage markers were damaged or not there at all , cart paths were bad , leaves on many of the holes played , but the fairways and greens were in great condition. overall not worth the regular rate of 80 dollars in season.

Way too overpriced

Chose to play this course while visiting Western Mass because of the good reviews it received, but I was very disappointed. $67 on a weekday, noon tee time with a cart. First off, the cart paths are horrendous. There's not one smooth patch of pavement and the whole ride around is bumpy as anything and starts to really be a pain further in your round. Secondly, the amenities were awful. Water in coolers every couple of holes that was warm. Cart girl came around once when I was on 18. Sand traps and bunkers were more like gravel. If money is not an issue and you want to play a rather challenging course (pretty long), then go ahead. But their rates are absurd for what you actually get and the overall course.
