We'll definitely be back for another challenging round. It was our first time at Westover, and we found it to be a very long and difficult course. I have only two criticisms - the greens could have been cleaner (blown off), and we were told to speed up by a very rude ranger who started by yelling. The slow group was NOT us. We had to wait on every shot.

I booked a tee time here on my way back from the Boston area after visiting family. I played here the previous Friday on my way out, and wanted another crack at the long course layout. The prices are pretty good for a course of this style, length and condition. With cart, 18 holes will cost you $39 and walking will cost you $24. With that being said, if you book online through their website, you can often get an mind boggling cart rate for 18 holes of $20 for a tee time after 12pm as an online price!

On this day I decided a nice long walk was just what I needed in the Granby countryside seeing as the weather was absolutely gorgeous. I ended up being paired with a local player, much older than me, who was also walking but only 9 holes. We instantly hit it off, talking about various courses we had played in the recent months and recommending a few tracks to each other. From my interactions here at Westover Golf Course, this is quite the norm with the clientele ; genuinely nice golfers who just enjoy their time on the course and are very easy going.

The course layout is almost strictly left to right, or straight away, so if you play a fade, this course is certainly for you. The golfer I was paired with told me a sort of urban legend surrounding the course layout revolving around the XO of the Westover AFB back when the course was being designed. According to the legend, the XO had somewhat of a habitual slice and had asked the designer to accommodate that into the layout. Sure enough only one hole, the par 5 7th, demands a tee shot that shapes from right to left. Almost every hole has woods in play on either side of the fairway, often times both sides, meaning danger of losing your ball is prevalent (I lost one on the 11th hole thanks to a extremely sloped chunk of woods and a slew of poison ivy i wasnt willing to search through).

I found that because of my length off of the tee (I usually only hit about 240-250 off of the tee) I was routinely hitting 5 irons and sometimes even longer clubs into par 4s on the front side. The length can be daunting on holes 2, and 6 on the front, and 11, and 15 on the back, depending on your driving length.

For the most part, this course was in phenomenal condition, plush green fairways, thick rough that puts a premium on hitting the short grass, and enough sand and trees to really cause you problems with shot shapes. The greens were in pretty good shape except for a few burnout spots towards the edges on 2 holes.

The staff was extremely cordial and very helpful, and the beverage cart was efficient in getting around the course. I saw the cart at least 3 times in my 18 holes, and the cart offered a wide variety of refreshments.

Practice facilities offer the usual grass tee range at reasonable prices, and a sizeable putting and chipping green out front near the first tee. Nothing over the top, but the green is in great shape.

This course is a very long course. It is difficult to par the hole for women unless you hit a very long ball. The course was in good condition – the people are friendly there and helpful. And it was a good experience

This course has many dog lefts and rights but not punitive as there is plenty of room to move the ball around. Greens are very nice and quick, even on this cold April 1st day.

Long course, too. Whites are plenty while tips will give you a championship length course. Stop by and see Cooper at the Pro Shop. No, not the pro, the black lab. :)

This is an old course that is tree lined on every hole but there is plenty of landing area so if you're in the trees, look in the mirror. Many dog lefts and rights, some forced carries. Greens great shape, nice firm traps, very well maintained. Cooper the dog behind the counter. Very cool Black Lab! Very friendly people. This was a very enjoyable round.
