Fantastic Fall Golf

Greens were perfect. Some leaves but not too bad. Pace of play was good because of the weather; mid 40s. So not much play. Gas carts are adequate. Course conditions were good. Overall great value.

Enjoyable fall round

Westover is one of the great value courses in Western Mass., with better than average public course conditions and a challenging layout. At 5450 yards from the Front Tees, it presents a good challenge with enough doglegs, sand traps, and distance to challenge all levels of ability. The only negative is the leaf litter that often lines the sides of the fairways, making it difficult to find a stray drive. The greens keep and crew do a nice job of keeping the greens in nice shape, with average put speeds. The courses bar and restaurant do a nice job of supplying pub food and a good selection of draft beers. The gripe I have is the carts are getting old and could use a better cleaning, especially the windshields. Minor issues to be sure, so if you have never played Westover GC, try it before the snow flies. You WILL ENJOY THE COURSE!

course length

Three members played the whites(6,700 but more like 6,850 today) which seemed to be back almost to the blues. The fourth member played the golds(5,450) . That 1,400 yard difference seems extreme. It seems that white tees might serve the average golfer by being closer to the golds.

Great experience!

Our foursome had a great day. The course was in excellent shape and the greens were running fair and true.
You paid a bit of a price hitting from the rough but it kept you honest.
Great value for the great course conditions. The Pro, Bill, is very welcoming and helpful. Looking forward to getting over their again soon!

Poor Greens

For the first of many times I played Westover and the greens were in poor condition. The greens were uncut and recently aerated but the real issues were the many brown spots and evidence of fungus on some of the greens. The putts did not roll well and it was similar to playing very early in the year with the exception of the fungus.

comical putting show

This is usually a favorite deal. Unfortunately, Golf Now wasnt advised that all the greens were aerated. Puts bounced toward hole and would occaissionally come to rest in a hole just before the cup. The pro shop offered a free 9 hole round. I would play this course at least one of 4 times I get out.

Really nice course and a great bargain.

Very well maintained public course with several challenging holes. Beer cart girl was a major plus, very attractive and competent. We were paired up with two great guys that made the round a lot of fun.

Good value

Course is in very good shape. Greens a bit slow but true. Easy walking course . The white tees are 6700 yds and the golds 5400 . Would be nice to offer something around 6000 which is what the golds used to be.

Westover is great

Westover is a long challenging course from the tips, and is one of the longest in the area. You’ll do well to put the driver away on some of the long par 4’s and choose to get into the fairway and approach with a longer iron. Greens were rolling true and the course looks great except for bunker sand has become packed and hard in many cases. Use fluffy mason sand, not corse sand please. Staff is great and the refreshments cart is always buzzing around making sure you’re not thirsty. Westover is one of the very best municipal courses I’ve ever golfed.
