I had a tee time of 12:27, but the starter let me go early. The pace of play moved along well and as a single, the foursome let me play through on the fourth hole. The temperature was in the high 70s', low humidity and bright sunny skies. A perfect golf day. Even in mid May the course is looking good. I know the newer subcontractor (IGM) has been doing a good job of groundskeeping, with evidence in the greens and fairways. Jeffrey Cornish did a great job in course design back in 1965. The only regret I have about the course is the two holes (5&12) where the legal fight changed those holes. If you are not aware of that history, you should ask an employee about the history and changes - for the worse.

I look forward to more enjoyable rounds at Chicopee CC this season. At about 5900 yards from the white tees, it's not as long as Westover, but a bit more fun layout.

Based upon my star rating you can see that I enjoy this course. It’s always in great shape. The ONE complaint that I have is that this track always FORCES you to play with another twosome if you reserve a twosome. Doesn’t matter what time on a weekday it is. I’ve been forced to play with a twosome with a 715 am tee time on a Wednesday morning. I understand the concept. Speed up play and group pairings together. Just would like some notice. What if one wants to play with their mother or father without two strangers around at all times. Or talk business with an important client. I would gladly pay full price instead of a “hot deal” to atleast have the option of playing just with who you intended on playing with.

Considering the long winter which seems like it just ended a couple weeks ago, the course was in amazing shape. Greens are fast but true now, so I can only imagine how quick they are in the heat of the summer. Friendly workers in the pro shop and at the bar and grill. One of the best municipal courses we’ve ever played, will definitely be back again this season.

If I had one wish it would be when you call a course for a tee time they will have the courtesy to tell you if they’re aerating. We had to drive for an hour to arrive and find this out. I understand courses must aerate and to tell people this they would lose business, but they’ve lost it anyway. We were told we had to play the first 9 twice because they were aerating the back 9. If I had wanted to play 9 twice I could have chosen one of the many 9 holes courses in my area. At the very least there should have been a substantial decrease in price for such deplorable conditions; they knocked $3 off. We played, only to discover on the first green they had just got done aerating in the past few days and so we were putting on sandy greens. Chalk it up to our mistake for not asking. Another problem arose when approaching to start our "back 9". Course etiquette says you take turns with those lined up to do the front 9. The starter let 2 groups that were waiting to start the front 9 out in front of us, instead of sandwiching us in between. When it was brought up that we should be next he said he worked a 9-hole course for years and knows protocol, but had no explanation why he let others out in front of us. To add insult to injury, the first group he let out was so incredibly slow it took us 3 hours to play the “back 9” versus 2 hours to play the “front”. Had a ranger or starter been making periodic runs to see why things just weren’t moving, they would have seen 2 full holes in front of this group and informed said group of courtesy for slow play, which ironically was posted in the cart about slow play and you must keep up with the group in front of you. This group did not let anyone play through. As a result of this dreadful experience, we took our dining and drink business elsewhere and will NOT be returning anytime soon.

Great course in fantastic condition. A true gem for a municipal course at a great value in price too. Greens were quick and rolled true. Rough was a bit high in areas but you're supposed to play on the short stuff anyhow.

I had a beautiful day of golf on this course with two exceptions. Upon arriving and seeing only 6 cars in the parking lot I was assured I would have no problem getting out. The guy in the pro-shop quickly asked me if I had a tee-time. I said no, he said I should, I then stated from looking online the sheet was open for most of the morning, he agreed, but stated it is always best to call ahead of time to get a tee-time. Ok. Not sure why, but maybe this is why the place was empty. The course played well, the greens seemed fast from my memory (been over 20-years since I played there). On course it was fun and challenging. Except the 12th hole. You couldn't stop a ball on the green and the hole was in the upper back part of the green. Two of the greens keepers stood around and watched as I rolled 6 balls up to the hole, and right back off the green. Two of the balls actually hit the flag but didn't go in. It wasn't even funny, there is NOT way to play this hole as is. Beyond what seemed like wicked crazy fast greens the course was in good shape and it played well. On a side note, none of the bunkers have been raked in weeks and playing out of them not a lot of fun. Overall a good round of golf, I might just have to try it again soon.

This course is in great shape, tee to greens. Challenges you to make shots, greens can be tricky if not careful a 3 putt is easy to come by.

I grew up inn the city, playing dozens of rounds over the years. I can honesty write I have not seen the course in better shape that it is this season. Part of it may be this year's moderate summer, but I believe most of the very nice playing condition is due to the relatively new grounds crew, IGM. (International Golf Maintenance) There is evidence of recent aerating of the greens, but the grass plants bounced back and the greens nice and smooth, with moderate speed. Fairways look well kept and I forgot that the course has asphalt cart paths that were completed some years ago. The Geoffrey Cornish designed layout has been popular with many golfers who live out of town, for a very good reason - price. By today's daily fee averages, Chicopee CC remains one of the best value golf experiences in the greater Pioneer Valley. I had such a great day enjoying the course, I am seriously thinking of buying a weekday pass, for the 2018 season. My only gripe is the bar / "restaurant" does NOT compete well in price or offerings. A minor gripe, since I don't go to a golf course to eat. If you have not played this course yet, you should, while the fall weather allows for some scenic and very enjoyable play.
