Richter Park Golf Course
Situated at the heart of Fairfield County, Richter Park Golf Course is situated along the West Lake Reservoir. The course has been ranked among not only the top ten golf courses in Connecticut but also as one of the top 25 public courses in the country. The course sprawls across more than 180 acres of gently rolling hills. Water has a prominent presence throughout, with the Reservoir bordering seven holes on the front nine and water hazards coming into play on a total of 14 holes. In addition to the water, there are a variety of elevation changes ranging from subtle to dramatic, which can make it a tough golf course to play your first time. Be prepared for a few blind shots. Richter Park's signature hole, the par-5 12th, is bordered by Boggs Pond. Your third shot will be over water to a bunkered green.

Consistent...showing late-season wear
Always my favorite CT course. Challenging layout and gorgeous. Any public course has its rough spots which they're working to address in a few areas. White tees have become terribly worn this late in the season. Rains have created tons of overgrowth around perimeter and exacerbated swampy areas on the back nine that need to be addressed with a real solution/makeover one day.... Otherwise course is lush, playable and fun.
Best Course in Connecticut
This is by far the best course (difficulty, condition, quality of design) I have played in Connecticut. This is a must play for any serious golfer in our area.
Richter is a very mature and challenging course. It is well maintained and despite the heavy traffic is in good shape
