Good challenging muni
Course in good shape with challenging right to left slopes on many holes making you bring your a game but fun to play. Highly recommend.
An Autumn Fall From Grace
I try to play this course at least twice a year and it is one of my favorites in the region. I must say I came away from today’s round with the greatest disappointment I have ever had at Oxford Greens. First there is no starter to be found because the gentleman who supposedly should be doing it was also double duty with golf cart setup and returns. His absence allowed a slow foursome to jump in ahead of us at the turn, which backed up pace of play so bad that we skipped the 11th hole to get ahead of them.
But my biggest complaint was the complete absence of any grounds maintenance personnel on the entire course. 75% of the leaves have fallen from the trees, but from holes number 1 through 12 there has been no blowing of leaves in the rough and just off the cart paths and even some tee boxes, which is inexcusable. I understand it is autumn season and that puts a premium on staying in the fairway but today was ridiculous. Even for decent shots that were in the rough but inside the cart paths it was often impossible to find a ball that was swallowed up by masses of leaves that clearly had not been blown in at least three or four days. Very disappointing. And as has been mentioned by other reviewers, all the greens are aerated. Overall, very hard to get an accurate score between bumpy greens and decently played “lost” balls.
Always enjoy playing this course. Be sure to pick the tees appropriate for your level of play. If you don’t, you probably won’t enjoy the course as much. Lots of challenging greens.
Aerated without notice - greens are terrible... wait three weeks. Few holes are cart path only- why. Fees should be discounted....
Aerated greens and fairways
The greens and fairways were aerated with no public knowledge. It should have been noted when you book a tee time. Could not putt the greens because the ball acted like you were playing bumper pool plus you couldn't judge the speed. The ball looked like a snowball rolling down hill picking up sand. There was no reason for cart path only. There has been very little rain recently. Again some notification when you book a tee time would be considerate. Not worth paying for those conditions.
Pace of play was EXCRUCIATING !!! Could of been avoided !!!
We were about to tee off when we noticed the starter letting a group of 6 off at the same time. Our group and the group in front of us confronted the starter. The starter stated they were playing best ball and it was OK'd by the office. Turned out not to be true.. The Starter was oblivious, didn't care , or couldn't comprehend the easily foreseeable issues ahead. We get to the 2nd hole Par 3. The group of 6 were on the green taking their time. (Clearly not best ball) The group in front of us waiting to tee off. Our group and the foursome behind us caught up as well. 18 Golfers on the 2nd Hole. What a mess. We call the clubhouse as this is not a great way to start your Sunday round. If it wasn't a 45 min ride to get there we would of demanded our money back and left then. After multiple calls to the clubhouse as we were averaging 25 mins per hole we were on our way to a 7.5 Hour round they advised they were sending a manager out. Needless to say that accomplished nothing. This course used to be one of the top public courses in CT. Save your $$$. The staff act as if you are bothering them when asking for common courtesy's. Really poor management. No Rangers 6 hour plus round... Unacceptable... Its really a shame as this used to be a great place to go. This %1000 could of been avoided if they had common sense and an ounce of common courtesy
Excellent challenging course
The course was in fine condition, staff is pretty friendly, greens are exceedingly difficult, undulating and fast
Great Golf Course
The Golf Course was is great shape. As expected the course was challenging but the condition was in great shape for the time of the year.
Slow pace of play
Overall course in decent shape. Carts a little beat up and dirty from previous users. No rangers so the pace of play was about 5 hours.
