good course for this time of year

Course is showing signs of winter coming on, recently aerated greens, a little bumpy. Great weather was fun to out this late in the season.

Best Public Course in the Area

This is a great layout and it is kept in excellent condition. A really great New England style layout. Autumn leaves were no problem as they were no where to be seen.

Fall ball

We were a twosome, course used shotgun start before we played in afternoon. They got us in during gaps in play. Course in great shape, greens rolling nice. I’ve played Chicopee for over 45 years and it is a test of your skills. I believe in the last couple of years, the course has improved to it’s glory days and contains a couple of WMass’ best and toughest holes. The fairways were cleaned of leaves but that meant any ball heading elsewhere was a goner. A great day of Fall golf, they are disappearing fast as the clock changes.

Course in very good conditions(Except Bunkers)

Very nice course, fast greens, the people working there are extremely, nice & helpful! I would have given 5 stars, but the bunkers were in poor shape, a lot of stone. But I talked to the man in the pro shop and he stated that all the bunkers were going to be redone by the start of next year. I would play this course again.

Starter with a GREAT attitude

I played Chicopee earlier in the month and meant to review this great course then, so this will be a combined review of both trips. I was so very impressed with this course that I had to play it again. Hence the the delayed review. Both times played I had the most pleasurable experiences with David. He is the most professional and friendly starter I have ever encountered in all me years of play! Right from the start he was approachable and inviting. After check-in, (which was also a great experience) he made me feel like I was a member. He gave me tips as I have not played this course before. I actually drove 90 minutes from CT. to play here after reading the great reviews about Chicopee. David would be an asset to any golf course, Chicopee should feel honored that he chose their course to be his home!
The course is very attractive and reasonably challenging from all the tees. The views are to be commended during the fall. Along with the jets and helicopters flying over from nearby Westover military base. (others may be upset with this distraction, however it is amazing to see such a display of dominant force flying overhead) It did not bother me at all! I was impressed.
The other impressing thing was the on-board rate card. They had "GOLFNOW" as a contact for a great rate and to book now on "GOLFNOW" I found this to be pleasing, as you may have heard how other courses treat us "GOLFNOWer's" (like they wouldn't click on a good deal themselves...Lol)
This made me feel even more welcomed and I will definitely play and refer this course to anyone!!!
Keep up the GREAT customer service David...you DO make a difference!!

Beautiful Course

Chose this course for the value and previous reviews. It did not disappoint. Course was in excellent condition and it is a beautiful looking course. Has several blind shots but was a fun course overall. Greens were true and fast for a Muni.

Good course to play.

This course has been on my list for while. Played several times and continues to deliver a good experience.
Good day, seemed like a private course as not many golfers out. Conditions are good.

Nice Course but Painfully Slow Play on a Weekday

The Ranger needs to grow a pair. When the threesome puts two in the woods and the third doesn’t clear the forward tee, it time to pick up and move along. I know it’s a municipal course, but slow play inconveniences everyone behind the laggards. After multiple calls to the clubhouse, refund their money and encourage them to take some lessons before venturing out on a course. No excuse for slow play.

two thumbs up

Chicopee is one of nicest public courses in the area. Which is nice because its one of few with tee time which allows us to use rewards. Sand is nice to play from. Some dirt patches even in fairways. Rough is friendly for the most part. Greens are a fair challenge but stay below hole on 12 or your put will roll well past hole if you miss. Friendly staff from pro shop to restaurant/bar.

Great Muni

Had played more than 20 years ago, much has changed, due to lawsuit had to change a par 4 down to 3. One of the best munis in Western Mass. Only problem occurred on back 9 when group was ignoring all pace of play rules, which forced the 3 groups in front of us to skip a hole to get in front. Saw player assistant on 2nd hole, never saw again all afternoon. Spoke with beverage cart young lady explaining the problem, to pass to pro shop or ranger,
but nothing done. Would highly recommend this course, though.
