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.

Can't touch this

Today was a beautiful day to hang out with all my best friends. We all played good today, so that's a good thing. The tee box, fairways and the greens is in fair Condition. The price was a little high,other than that everything else was ok.This course would be better if they hire a ranger to drive around, just to many guys just jump around the golf course. One thing I noticed lately is just to many single guys playing by themselves. They could make more , if they control and start putting golfers together, instead of letting one guy out by himself, then a twosome behind that guy. It just don't make sense to me when I see that other than that we don't have any issue.

Greens are punched

Wish I knew the greens were punched. It’s already typically a marginally maintained course but punched greens made it not worth playing.

Hanging out!

I would not recommend this course to my friends at this time. Everything about this course is awful. Not watering the fairways and the greens. No sNds in the bunkers, just solid dirt and dirts in the middle of the fairways insteD of grass. We did not have fun playing golf this weekend. That's all I have to say about this place.

Poor value

Too expensive for quality of course. Not being able to pre-reserve a riding cart was VERY bad. Having to prepay for a non-discounted round was bad (...said it was for Covid, but wasn't-- had to still go inside to ask for and get cart.)
Used to be much better before GolfNow bought Tee-Off.
