Terrible and totally rundown!

It’s obvious that no money whatsoever is reinvested in the course or facility!! What could have some potential, is just a rundown uncared for dump!

Just another dirt track

Long gone are the days when this was a decent course on par with other local options (i.e. Tunxis). It's now fallen into such disrepair that 2 bridges were completely washed out while 2 others were in very questionable condition. Oh and not to mention a temporary green on white 4 due to a huge pond in the middle of the hole. This was not notified to us when we paid in the clubhouse either. Might want to tell people that you think? In general, it's not worth the 59$ green fee for 18, as there are better options nearby.

New Owners bad look

This seriously was one of my favorite courses to play the last two years, never in great shape but for the money I could play for low 20’s walking or mid 30’s low 40’s with a cart. The layout is awesome for scoring always a course that’d I’d be able to go too and feel good about my game. Yesterday was unbelievable, I saw the rise in prices and was confused, but thought wow they must’ve done tons of work to the course in the off-season. So we decided to walk for 30, well here’s the kicker I called and booked my tee time so when we went in to pay he charged us 40 per person even though everywhere says 30 real odd. The kicker we played Reds to whites and it’s the same old blue fox absolutely 0 work done to the course still a temporary green on 13 Whites and still beat up, was a great golf course to play cheap but you can’t be serious charging more than Tunxis get a grip.

March Golf in CT

Enjoyed playing golf in March. Course was in good condition for this time of year. I would have given the course a higher condition rating but they had a temporary green and traps were very wet. But that needs to be expected at a time when play is not usual in CT.

Very friendly staff.

Pace of play was excellent. We did have an early tee time.

Scrimmaging in Early December on the White/Red

In December, the option of ‘scrimmaging’ in golf--as opposed to playing the normal game--presents itself. That’s what I did today, focusing mainly on getting GIR’s rather than keeping close tabs on score. From the first hole, such a prospect, anyway, was hindered by bumpy, aerated greens.

Blue Fox White/Red was in average shape for December, and would be only fair compared to what I experienced on October 31st. Conditions deteriorate that fast in Connecticut when late fall arrives (look at the comparative pics). The high-quality layout is always worth playing, though, as it has a nice mix of tough, moderate, and more routine golf holes.

Perhaps surprising for December, a fair number of cars were in BFR’s parking lot.

Good layout

It's always worth the hour trip to play Blue Fox. We go there about once a month. Staff is great, the course conditions are improving. Hope to get in at least one more round this year.
