Nice greens on this short course. A group of five slowed the round down considerably and not the first time I've seen it here. Would recommend at a discount rate, but make sure to tie your bag down tight... by far the worst cart paths still existing on a golf course without being re-paved. Would recommend walking it's that bad.

Very good course

Course in great shape. Will play again. Best if playing with someone who knows the layout (doglegs etc) if not, off fairways can be challenging.

Fun track, bumpy ride

Elmcrest is a fun course. It's not very long, but you do have to be accurate off the tee or you'll find woods and trees blocking out your approach shots. The greens and fairways were in great condition. I took a cart and the ride, especially on the back, was very bumpy which is really my only complaint. In time I am guessing the course will be able to fix all their cart paths as they seem to have done recently on the front 9. Certainly a great value course and I was impressed with everything except the aforementioned cart paths/ bumpy terrain. My rangefinder fell out of my cart twice, but I was able to go back and grab it both times.

Challenging short course

This course has its challenges. Narrow fairways, short and quick greens. Course was in fairly good shape. Only downfall was that the driving range is no longer there. Like to hit a few balls before the round starts.

Well worth it

An enjoyable layout with some tight fairways, smallish greens and good variety. You can shoot a low score here if you're relatively straight off the tee, and from the white tees you can keep the driver in the bag half the time. The deal on Golf Now was fantastic -- $32 on a Sunday morning with carts. I've played most of the courses in Western Mass and northern CT but this was my first time at Elmcrest. I would definitely return. Greens were a bit slow but seemed to roll true. Some of the rough was out of control and penalized shots just off the green. GPS takes you down the wrong street, so get your directions in advance.

Lots of Potential

Course was in good shape. Rough was high, bunkers not the best, greens ran well. Fairways are a little tight on some holes especially the front 9. Course was bought a year ago and you can see they are doing a lot of work. No Signs to tell you what hole you were on so some of the holes we were guessing but figured it out.
