One of the Best

Recently played the course with the Safari Club and had an enjoyable time. The club is in the middle of changes to improve course maintenance and playing conditions. Fairways, greens and tee boxes were in great shape and offered good lies when played from the short grass. Staff was helpful and always had a smile.

This course has and outstandning design for every hole!!

I played with the Safari group that day with over 100 players and the staff and pro shop were there for our every need.
This is an outstanding golf course with its unique design and in fantastic shape. The greens were fast and had many challenges.
Each hole seemed as if you were playing alone and the design and scenery is a great bonus.

Always a good experience

Played Crump with the Safari club last week. The pro and other staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The course is a tough challenge each time I play it, but worth the experience. Carts on the paths only, makes it even more challenging, but not the course's fault. They are cutting down lots of trees everywhere, at times distracting, but I like that they are constantly making improvements.

Golfnow blunder

Golfnow/course really screwed the pooch. Drove an hr for a nice hot deal price only to find front 9 closed for aeration and only back 9 open. Those had been punched almost two weeks before but still arent close to being back to Crump greens. Neither were mentioned on golfnow as had they I wouldn't have made the drive to play 9 holes twice.

Gem of "Course"

Although we have had record rain during the past month the course played pretty wet and the greens are still healing from being punched a week and half ago. However this is the sweetest course in Western Mass. The fairways are like carpets and when the greens are at their best it's like playing on a PGA course. The track is spectacular and the scenery is lit. This course is a true gem and if I lived closer, I would definately be a member. The staff is friendly and the new GM is making sure that the whole operation is running top notch and smoothly. This golf course should be experienced by all who have a passion for the game.

Tremendous golf course

Best course that I have played, period. Great conditions, unbelievable views, tremendous layout, friendly staff, etc. Challenging due to elevation changes, undulating and fast greens, and strategic bunkering., but very fair given the generous width of fairways. I will certainly be back to Crumpin-Fox in the future.

Great Course, incredible bang for the buck

Really top notch championship golf course. Gorgeous views of the Berkshires. Extremely challenging layout. If you are a single digit hcp, play the tips; 10-18hcp the blues. If you are a 20+hcp play the golds. This course is harder from the golds than most courses are from their “tips”. Bring a LOT of balls. Lol. I love this course.

Amazing staff, Well maintained, beautiful views and a bang for your buck

Myself and a friend played on Tuesday 10/24. The course was in immaculate condition. Before we could even get to enjoy the course we were greeted by one of the most friendly down to earth guys, Mike. Mike handled the starting duties and greeted us on a chilly morning in the parking lot with a smile. He had become a friend to us and it didn’t take long.

The condition of the course is second to none and the pace of play was great. To round out the day with a bite to eat at Zeke’s with a fire in the fireplace you can’t beat it.

Take the time to play here ASAP!!!!

A very enjoyable experieince. Beautiful course cut out of the woods. A very fair course. You have to think your way throug, and be pretty accurate with your shots. We played through a foursome that was spraying the ball, but they seemed to be having fun as well. I play at 30 or 40 courses a year, and the carts have the most comfortable seats ever. Finally the staff is friendly and helpful.

Not up to PAR

Usually this course is one of my favorites but last week was an exception. Course was wet (had to use cart path only) and was not in its usual good condition.
We had called previous to our departure because of our 1:45 hr drive. We were told the course was in great shape and confirmed the price of golf to the email we'd received early that week. When we arrived the pro shop would not honor that price and insisted the course was in excellent condition. When we were advised of the cart path only rule it should of sent off red flags but we didn't question it at the time.
Well course was wet and muddy and, the greens had not been cut for several days. It was a hot humid day in the mid-upper 90's and there was no cart service on the course. Traps were in need of grooming.
The golf carts with GPS were programmed to NOTallow you to drive the fairways (which was ok because it was cart path only); however, they would occasionally STOP in the middle of the paved cart paths for no known reason and require you to back up 20-50 yds at 1 mph in order to go forward again. This happened on about every other hole, sometimes twice a hole (even though you were in the middle of paved cart paths!). We mentioned this to the pro shop and their reaction was...yes, other people have had the same problems so there must be a problem with the GPS system. Ya think!
You'd think the pro would give us a discount or at least the lower price indicated in the previous email....but NO!
