Greens

The course was in good shape with the exception of the greens and a few Tee Boxes. There us a problem with some crabgrass like grass on the greens that affect the roll of putts. Some tee boxes had little grass. Nonetheless, the course us playable and the staff accommodating. Paid $60 fir the round which is reasonable. But would love to see it as it was inn2019.

Great layout

This course has some photo worthy holes, really well designed for the terrain. Some of the fairways had bare spots, but most were good. Not sure how long the course has been open for the season. Greens were really slow. Rough was dense and the fairways don't hold the ball well on some holes, so you have to drive the ball in the perfect spot or end up in the rough. Really enjoyed it and will come back if we're ever in the area again. White tees (6100 yds) are deceptively longer due to several holes with doglegs that don't require driver or 3 wood off the tee but leave you with 170+ into the green.

Major disappointment

I always looked forward to playing this course a few times each year as it is (was) one of my favorite courses in Connecticut. I had not played in a few years and boy did the course conditions deteriorate. Great layout but greens were terrible. T boxes were beat up. Fairways were OK for the most part. When I checked in they said they were raising the price come memorial day. I paid $60. I wouldn’t pay $35 to play that course. So unfortunate for such a beautiful lay out in such a beautiful area

Major disappointment

This course used to be primo. Probably one of my favorite in the state of Connecticut. Greens were horrible, Tee boxes were beat up. Pace of play was awful. I wouldn’t pay $40 for this course let alone $60. They’re gonna increase the greens fees Memorial Day? Keep it. Not coming back

Conditions Improving

Tees and fairways were ok, greens, especially on the front 9 still have a ways to go. Would wait till July to play again.

It’s in really rough shape

The course is in very rough shape. The greens were absolutely terrible. The pace of play was also slow going since they had some kind of scramble going tees off late and it was slow going. I’ve played here before and loved it, today not so much. Hopefully they can get it back to the beautiful course it once was

Greens are in rough shape

The course is in much better shape than last year; however, the greens are still sub-par. No complaints on the fairways or rough, but the greens just aren’t what they used be. Not worth the money at full price, but if you find a good deal and can accept with a bad day of putting, I’d go for it. Hoping the greens improve over the remainder of the season!

So Worth It

Very enjoyable. Course in great shape although greens were a little bumpy as it looked they’d be aerated recently so vey understandable. Great pace of play. GPS on carts very helpful. With Hot Deal I couldn’t pass up playing. Probably the deal of a lifetime. Will go back for sure even without heavy discount.

Fox Hop

The golf course did not get our reservation through teetimes.com, but were very accommodating, and fit us in 5 minutes after our desired start time. It was a great course, with a fun layout, and challenging pin locations. The greens were punched on Monday, so they weren't in the best condition. Once those heal, the course will be mint. Definitely a fun course to play, and I'll absolutely go back.
