Norwood Country Club

I had a 1:20 tee time on 9/14/18. There was a tournament in progress and was moving slowly due to the rain the past few days making the course cart path only. Waiting a half hour beyond our tee time with more golfers on the tee I went in the Pro shop to speak with the fellow behind the counter. He was pleasant and apologetic. I told him I would wait a while longer but might ask for a rain check.

The golf pro John Resnick came over and talked to me just as I was calling Golf Now. Great guy, in fact, he was also manning the grill for the tournament but took the time to ask me if everything was okay. He agreed to giving us ( my brother and I ) a rain check via his business card and said I could bring 2 more golfers for the inconvenience. I had not played Norwood in years because I live in FL now, but wanted to remark how cordial and concerned he was. Service, ethics and common sense do not seem to exist much any more but they are alive and well at Norwood Country Club. Only used the range and putting green while we were there but the course looked in great shape. I am looking forward to going back and play in the next week or so. Thank you John.

This course holds water like a fishtank. The rough is roots and swamp. Terrible conditions always; I highly recommend not coming here.

Needs work

A little dangerous balls from driving range almost hit me a few times. Tee boxes need work.

Double Bogey

I was pretty disappointed in the round at Norwood CC. The course fairways are the worst condition I have ever seen. Pace of play would've been better had there been a starter. It was a free for all to tee off. $56 isn't a lot to spend to play golf but there are plenty of better options on GolfNow.

Awesome Changes at Norwood

Yes, Norwood is a fair, easy golf course for a low handicapper, yet I used every club in my bag. I wanted to relay to all golfers the huge improvements concerning course conditions. The greens a pure bent and roll beautifully, the fairways are now defined, they have expanded the fringe areas (collection areas) which helps the golfer and speeds up play, the prices are incredible and the bar is a fun place afterwards.

Good Starter Course

Norwood Country Club is where I learned how to play the game many, many years ago. Being in my hometown it was convenient and inexpensive, a perfect combination for a teenager. I would recommend this course for beginners as it is pretty straightforward,. the holds are lined up side by side like aisles in a costco. The staff is VERY nice and helpful
