Good Value

Considering we played the day after a NorEaster with rain and wind, the course was in great shape - wet in a few places and some leaves. But didn't lose a ball . The greens rolled very good. The fairways and tee boxes in good condition. The pace of play was bad - 5 hour round. We had a 9am tee time. The did a shotgun start. We didn't start until 9:15. 5 hours is too slow! Other than that, very good day.

Course Needs Work

Usually, Westover has been pretty dependable in delivering good course conditions and pace of play. Today, both were terrible. In the years I have been playing this course, I don't recall the greens being in such poor condition. Putting anything outside of 4 feet is an exercise in futility; huge bare spots, uneven and bumpy. The tee boxes were also nothing but dirt on multiple holes. Disappointing.

greens need work

I have played this course many times and never saw the greens this roughed up. Maybe just too much rain water, but they need work.

Westover

Good deal for $30. Overall course conditions are okay. The rough was very thick and long. Made finding a ball difficult. The staff is very friendly. Greens were okay. Rough in spots. Overall a good value. Pace of play was okay.

WESTOVER was one of the best course around,now it seems like lack of maintenance or money is killing it!

That’s a shame!!

Class act

My dad and I arrived at the course to find it was closed for a tournament later in the day. When we explained to Head pro Bill Kubinski that we had a confirmed tee time through GolfNow, he honored it, personally found us a cart, and asked the starter to get us out so we could play as many holes as possible before the shotgun start later in the day. While we weren’t able to get in 18 holes before the tournament started, we were satisfied with what we were able to get in because we were treated fairly. Thanks Bill and the staff at Westover Golf Course for turning what could have been a bad situation into a positive experience!

Worth a Visit

Played the course today with the Safari Club and had an enjoyable experience. T-boxes and fairways were in good condition. The greens were recently aerated so putting was a challenge. Staff was helpful and friendly.

Poor Green Conditions

I knew the greens were plugs before I purchased. I expected small plugs not the very large ones I encountered. The amount of them made it even worse. Looked like they had some kind of problem prior to spiking the greens as there were sections of green that looked dead. All in all still a good layout and fun course to play.

Second longest course in pioneer valley

Only the Ranch is longer from the tips but what really matters is you get a very challenging golf course in very good condition for very little money. This is a hidden gem loved by locals. The course used to be part of Westover air base for the officers and visiting dignitaries and was pristine but the layout remains even though the enlisted men are no longer grooming the grass for 50 cents an hour pay. If your visiting the Pioneer Valley don’t miss westover and the ranch.

This course is in great shape

The course is well manicured and cared for. One of the few courses that actually takes care if it’s bunkers. The grounds crew is always hard at work.

Pace of play is very good and the staff is very professional.

Nice course with friendly staff

Westover is one of my favorite courses. I wish it weren't 57 miles away with a traffic jam on I 91 waiting on the return home. I usually meet some nice people to play with and playing the senior tees (I'm 78) has made the layout less of a struggle. Nice layout and conditions make this course an enjoyable day.

Great value for the money

A nice course. Great value for the money I paid. No signature holes though; fairly generic. Wide enough fairways allow for a meandering golf game.
