Great Day

Only 50 min north of my hometown and i can’t believe this is the first time i have played here. We were able to get a great deal on GolfNow for 35& after 2pm with cart.
Now that i have played and a little course knowledge i can’t wait to go back.

This is one of the friendliest staffs around. The usual starter, Mike, remembered us from last year and is a pleasure to talk with; the young man who was starter today was awesome; and the guys running the pro shop were the best. Love this course; love the people who run it!

Nearly a Perfect Golf Course

In the midst of of the current pandemic and the stress of Massachusetts being a hot spot for the virus, playing golf at Crumpin-Fox is a joyous escape. From immaculate course conditions to perhaps the friendliest staff in New England, I don't think you could enjoy yourself more than by playing a round here.

The course is currently walking only (carts are provided for those who can't) and it was really the first time I had played a course where everyone around me is walking too and it was a real treat. The one drawback is a slower pace of play but if you are in a 3- or 4-some, you probably won't be waiting much as I saw a ranger at least a couple times.

The maintenance staff has done a phenomenal job with the course. Every surface is pure and perfect. The fairways are lush and smooth and look great with the crosshatch mowing, as do the greens. I wouldn't have minded the greens rolling a tad bit faster but putts nonetheless rolled smooth and true towards the raised cups.

The Robert Trent Jones Sr design is just so, so good. I particularly love how many of the tees are elevated above the fairways for some epic, towering shots to mostly generous landing zones. This was my first time back since the course implemented some tree removal and the difference is noticeable, though there are still a few fairways where a straight shot is required. There's a good variety of holes and you'll have to think through a lot of your shots to score well here.

I love a good value as much as I love good conditions and when I get to play a course with both, it makes my experience that much better. $45 to walk this course is an excellent value and I can't wait to come back and play here again!

A real Gem

This course is spectacular. In great shape, wonderful layout, greens were just a tad slow, but to be expected early in the season. Will try to play this every chance I get.

Late season

When I arrived the pro said the owner of the course was having a shotgun and I wouldn’t be able to get out on time. There was no apology and I had to push them to at least get out on the back nine. They could’ve sent me ahead of the shotgun as the course was empty. I don’t expect to be waited on hand and foot but I wasn’t happy with the head pros attitude. This is my last round of the season here and I’m bummed because of what transpired.

Course offers everything.

The course layout is fantastic. Quite a few doglegs to the left. Quite a few elevated tee boxes and greens. Very challenging. The fairways and greens are in great shape. Great day of golf. I would strongly recommend the course to anyone.

Best Public Course in Mass. or Conn.

I love this course but it doesn’t always love me!! I have shot an 80 and a 92 in the same season. If you make a mistake on your drive, second or approach, you have a problem. That just gets you to the greens that are very challenging and more so when they tuck the pins short over water, just over bunkers or back edges with trouble over back of the green. Normally, middle of the green is a good play but won’t necessarily eliminate the three putt. Your A game will give you a chance at a really good score but anything less can make for a long day! If you want a fair challenge this is it and why we play it a couple of times a year

Nice course, slow play.

This course is in great shape, nice challenges, good views, excellent layout, a bit of a drive, but slow play again. It seems they don't believe in rangers, it took us 4.5 hours to play the round, could easily be less than 4hrs. I like the course but they could do something to improve time on the course.

If you're interested in just playing fast, this probably isn't the course for you. I just played there last Friday and the round took 5 hrs. Didn't bother me at all. I only get out to Crump 2-3 times a year and I want to enjoy my time on the course there, I'm certainly not in a rush. I'm quite sure that's how other players feel as well. This is one of the best courses in the state, no one (besides you) is rushing thru their round here.

Also, you do realize the standard pace of play for 18 holes is 4 hrs 20 min, right? And you're complaining because your round was 10 minutes over? Sounds to me like you're just one of those people who complains about everything.

Nice hidden course, slow play.

This course is challenging and in great shape. It is fun to play and has great scenery. However, a 5 hour round in NO fun for anyone. By the time we reached the last 4 holes we were just hoping to finish. There was no ranger at all, plenty of people at the first hole, starter and cart attendant. I like this course, but slow play makes it hard for me to return in the near future.
