Welcome Back

If you haven’t played this course in a while due to it being run down then please try it again, they've done a fantastic job bring this fun course back. No drainage problem, fairways in good condition, greens were soft and maintained. Bunkers were fine and pace of play on a Sunday was good. Give this old friendly course another chance, you will be surprised how good it is.

Great value

Nice mix of holes. Well placed bunkers. Well-maintained greens. Staff is excellent. The course used to have poor drainage, but they have done a great job of alleviating the issue. One of the best values around.

Value

18 holes for $43, can't go wrong. For a high handicapper like myself, course is perfect. If yiu miss left or right, csn always get back on track with next shot due to layout.

far too expensive

Prices are up 43% from last season. Non resident weekday 9 holes walking went from 14 to 20. Course quality does not warrant such an outrageous increase

Good round for February!

The front 9 was open but the back was closed because of snow. For February, the course was in pretty good condition. Just happy to be out there playing. Place was packed so the round was slow. Staff were super friendly.

Very wet on most of the course, so be prepared for slop if it rained a day or two beforehand.

Course Conditions Deplorable

I grew up playing this public golf course and it was for the most part a reasonably groomed and maintained facility.
I was invited to play recently and found the course to be in a total state of disrepair with even the most basic course grooming lacking.
The bridges over the creek that runs through the middle of the golf course are all falling apart inclusive of rotted wood,
The drainage problems run throughout the golf course with as much as 30% of most fairways or more unplayable and un-mowed.
There is little or no sand in the traps.
The downed trees and debris left over from wind storms weeks/months ago is still in piles along some of the wood lines. No attempt has been made to chip it, just piles of downed trees and branches.
The only area that is somewhat playable are the greens but nobody seems to repair ball marks at EHGC.

Great beginner course for a great value price to walk.

Good course for the value is only $20 to walk. Layout is pretty straightforward not too challenging and the greens were in good condition no. Some of the fairways had damage spots due to the amount of rain we had last month and people using carts in wet areas. Not bad for the price

Terrible

The course is in horrible condition. You would think the new management would take more time to improve drainage over raking the sand traps. The clubhouse staff member was courteous and professional. Otherwise, the professionalism and hospitality of the staff was lackluster at best. It's way overpriced for the quality you receive; I would recommend any other surrounding course in their worst conditions over East Hartford at its best.
