We had an outing at the club. I did not play, But after the round there was a get together for all Safari Club members. The Whately Inn put on a smorg that was out of this world. I even had to go up for seconds. As far as the golf, I was told that it was a very good course to play even though its only a nine hole track.

We arrived early to course and were told we wouldn't be able to tee off for at least one hour after our scheduled time because they had a course championship in progress. I checked the military tee times site and they were still showing tee times available before ours and we were not going to start anywhere our scheduled time. We left and played elsewhere that day. Would not recommend booking this course without calling directly to see what is scheduled. This is not the first time this has happened, but it is the worst delay.

NHCC was a well groomed fun course with an interesting layout. One hole is a dogleg right with a second shot up hill with the green set back in between a row of condos. As mentioned, it was in excellent shape considering the lack of rain here in Western Mass. Friendly staff and midweek seemed quiet, maybe a good time for beginners or to bring out a junior golfer. I will recommend this course to my friends and hope to return soon.

New owner and this place couldn't be more friendly. The layout is a bit tricky to follow first time. The 5th hole is the only one that really needs some attention. I thought the greens were EXCELLENT and most of the tee boxes and fairway were in pretty good shape. The traps have many rocks, but you can pick them out before your shot.

It's pretty wide open which is great for beginners, but pay attention because some hole are very close together. There is much work to do here but we got around 18 holes in just over 3 hours and my girlfriend enjoyed the day.

If you're looking for a fun 9 holes with little wait time and friendly people try this place out....

Played here a few times, this course has a good mix of holes\shots from my developing game.#1 par5 "grip & rip". Holes 2&6 fun 4's. Beware 3&4 share fairway. 4&5 require position T shots and targeted approach shots at greens nestled amongst condos. #7 long par3/239 from tips, unfortunately that offer little room for stance and backswing. # 9 requires straight T shots and 2nd shots with distance. Poolside and F&B facilities appear to offer cozy accommodations for members. Overall this convenient historic (1898) club offers fun golf at a good price.

The course was in pretty good shape! It's not the most difficult course but for the area and the price you can't really beat it. Granted if you want to play 18 holes if can get repetitive, but if you're just playing 9 it's perfect.

This place I thought would be decent to get a few holes in on a Sunday. When we got there everything was Ok, But as we started playing the course their was running sprinklers everywhere on a Sunday at noon??? It was hard to even complete a hole. Between the beat up greens, the fact that you almost get hit by oncoming tee shots form the other direction and the fairways hard to recognize, ID say that this place is no better than playing golf in my back yard.

DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT SPEND THE MONEY ON THIS COURSE. VERY POOR CONDITIONS, FROM POOR TEE BOXES TO BAD FAIRWAYS AND GREENS. NOT WORTH THE TIME OR MONEY. MAYBE ONE OF THE WORST COURSES IN NEW ENGLAND. THE DESIGN OF THE COURSE IS TERRIBLE. GO ELSEWHERE. UGHHH IT WAS A WASTE OF AN AFTERNOON.

It started with nobody in the pro shop, I had to go onto the course to find an employee to help me. The signage was non-existent! Could not find our way from one hole to the next! Did not know which green went with which hole. Sprinklers were going on fairways and greens at 11:00 AM forcing us to not finish holes. The fairways were in terrible shape. There was not a single golfer in the pro shop or restaurant and literally two other<br/> two-somes playing. Worst course ever.
