Great course, beautiful scenery

We play this course at least once a year when we are in New England for our annual vacation. The course was in great condition and the pace of play was as good as it gets. We are both intermediate golfers and love the challenges of the course.

One of my favorites.

One of my favorite courses. The conditions are always great. The course is challenging but if you play within yourself, you can have nice round. Sometimes the risk doesn’t outweigh the reward. The pace of play can be a little slow at times, but it allows you to take in the beautiful surroundings.

A Bona Fide Gem

It was nearly a 90 mile drive to play Crumpin Fox but well worth the effort. Using a Hot Deal helped this senior golfer and, as I experienced a while back, the course was in great shape and the staff as friendly as ever. I was able to play a two-ball scramble since the group in back of me were two holes behind. Even the senior tees (over 6,000 yds.) presented a challenge but a fair one---the number 1 and 2 handicap holes deserve their rating and nailed me with a double bogey on #1 and bogey on #2. As an old expression goes, "try it, you'll like it."

Crumpin Fox

Course in excellent shape. Greens rolling very nicely and pace of play was a reasonable 4 hours. Lunch in clubhouse was a few notches above average. All in all, a terrific play date. Rate through golf now made it extra special.

Best course in western mass

Beautiful course to play each hole is private . Greens in exceptional shape
Fairways as well in great shape . Greens roll at about 13 on the meter and have
Many brakes on them . Numerous elevation changes. What ever you shoot at other courses add 7 to 10 strokes to your game when you play there. Need to play conservative golf to score well . Very chalenging course .

A Robert Trent Jones Sr classic

Staff was great. The course was in great shape. Each hole demands a precise tee shot and precise 2nd shot. Greens were fast but fair. What wasn't fair was the rough. Needs to be cut to make it playable. Rough was thick and high enough to host a USGA event. The course layout can stand on its own without the brutal rough. The course lacks yardage makers but they are getting new carts with GPS so that problem will not be an issue. A true gem. Worth the trip to play for sure. Must bring your A game. The only other negative was the range was mats only. Make it grass and cut the rough and you would have one of the best courses in the country.

Well worth the time, really nice course and a friendly staff, but if you play on the weekend you need to be prepared for a possible 5 hour round

Slightly disappointed.

Course is a mix of good holes and gimmicky holes. A lot of blind tee shots. Local knowledge is critical. Did not live up to my expectations.

Beautiful but Tough

I played this course again with the Safari Golf Club of Western Massachusetts. It was in excellent condition as always. For an average bogey golfer like myself it is a fairly challenging course. Very hilly, a lot of woods with some narrow fairways. the large greens were fast and rolled very true. I'm glad I had a cart. Will definitely be back this year.

They are working on the course, but it didn't really effect play. Staff were helpful. We ate after golf and the food was good, but they only offer pub food. We will go back again.

Noticeable improvements

I played this course on May 17th with the Safari group. It was in great condition. Having played it last fall, it was very obvious how much work was done on the course to bring it back to its usual top condition. The greens weren't quite as fast as I remembered, but it had rained quite a bit prior to playing, Nice place for an outing. The staff is very accommodating.

Challenging Course

Played here last Wednesday with the Safari Club. Gorgeous day. Always a challenging track, and that day was no exception. Course was in excellent condition from tee to green. Had a very enjoyable day.

A true test of skills

If you want a true test of your skills, go to Crumpin Fox. As a member of the Safari Club, I had the pleasure of playing the Fox for about my 6th time. Each time it is a real challenge. Many holes are difficult to hit the greens in regulation without good drives strategically located. The conditions were great and many holes have had trees removed to allow more sunlight in to enhance the grass conditions. This course is worth a drive from anywhere to play.

Safari Club Outing to Crumpin Fox GC

I attended our Safari Club outing at Crump and the course was outstanding as usual. Unfortunately, they had just hosted a US Open qualifier, so the rough lived up to its name, "rough". That aside, the place was in great shape and I enjoyed the entire round, even if I didn't score as well as I had hoped. The staff was very friendly and helped us get our large group (144 golfers) in carts and onto the course. They are doing some improvements to the club house and have cleared quite a few trees and brush from around some of the holes, which should allow more light and air to reach some of the greens and tees. I will look forward to the next time I get to play at Crumpin Fox.
