Central MA Gem

Other than hole 18, whose fairway in parts was still recovering from the effects of the Summer drought, the course was lush green all around and in spectacular shape on this sunny but chilly mid-November day. Definitely not your average up and down bowling alley type course. You generally see very few other fairways besides the one you are playing. Mostly generous fairways so you can hit bombs without fear. Get your scoring done on the front 9 because the back 9 gets tougher with more blind shots and more water hazards. A+ course, enjoy!

First Time Playing

Great Course. Better people.

I received a call from the course regarding a frost delay. But seeing as my drive was 1:10 mins we decided to wait it out. The gent in the pro shop (Billy?) with the wild pants was courteous and professional. After a few cancellations on the earlier tee times, we were able to go out with the first group. Tough course that requires knowledge of layups. The course “turf crew” were doing their best to clean up leaves, but a slight wayward shot in the rough and you were struggling to find your ball—need to be better I guess 😂. Tavern staff was friendly. Food was hot and delicious.

Will definitely book another round here.

Enjoy the course

The course was in good shape, with the exception of the greens (They were punched, a week & a half before we played, and were not healed yet). Tee's, Fairways & rough were all in good shape for the most part (A few bad spots, here & there, but this has been a tough year)
Pace of play, was NOT good! We were stuck behind an awfully slow 4some (1 1/2 hole gap after 4 holes) Never saw a Ranger anywhere near us, to get them moving along.
Finally skipped past them on the 12th hole & had clear sailing the rest of the way.
Also really sorry to see the snack shop closed at 2:30, when we made the turn
Will definitely be back. Though

Worst conditions I've seen here

2 greens were garbage. Played this course many times, never seen that. I used to love it, but it's becoming a very average course.

Great Layout

Just punched and sanded greens so no expectations there. Wait a couple weeks and they'll smooth out. Hadn't golfed here all season. I was shocked at how poor the fairways were. This place is always perfect, but they had some real issues this summer. Hopefully it all comes back next year. Staff is awesome.

Irrigation needed

I generally enjoy the layout at Highfields, although the back nine pace always slows down at the 11-14 stretch. The greens were in good shape, but the fairways and tees had some really browned out sections with very little grass.

Mother Nature Punished this course...

This is written after the 4+ inches of recent rainfall...
So many brown spots on so many fairways...
So many brown spots on so many tee boxes, with some not much more than over worked grass...
The greens were lightning fast...flop shots bounced off of greens due to lack of rain...
Course will soon become THE location as the the FALL season gets underway with some tremendous vistas from several of the tee boxes(you can start by looking behind you on the first tee...but the back 9 is where you will be rewarded...
Interesting to note, they have a PACE OF PLAY on their scorecard, yet no one in the Pro Shop, Starter, Ranger mentioned this important item...while admittedly playing mid week, the 'active' ranger program could be better...saw one heading to his favorite spot, having just come on duty, to eat his lunch...the other, was along side the shade in the 16th just beyond the port a potty...but not much checking on pace...water coolers on course were appreciated
COURSE will ALWAYS be one of THE courses to play...just have be aware of Mother Natures impact...

I like the layout, also the different elevations

Pace of play was steady, nice to see on course ranger. Some greens need to be cut and rolled. Overall course conditions were very good given the lack of rain. I look forward to playing the course a few more times this season

Nice layout

Unique layout. Not your back and fourth kind of course. Fairways were open with lots of traps. Not sure if it's semi-private, but golfers didn't pay too much attention to fixing divots or raking traps. Lots of wooden tees left in every tee box. Greens rolled nice. A little pricey but it's in a good location. Would definitely play again.

Unbelievable course

I shot a 79 that day and that includes missing two eagle putts and 3 putting three times. I landed near/on 2 greens with my drives. I will be playing this course monthly going forward. Greens rolled quick, fairways are mint and tight. Tee boxes are in great shape. Starter was very friendly. Workers were wicked busy and nice.
