First Time Playing

Solid layout, needs upkeep

First time playing here and I will be back. It’s a course you need to play a handful of times to shoot a good score but man I love this layout. Bunkers were a bit firm for my taste. very hard to judge the proper weight. Tees and fairways could use some upkeep but overall the pro shop is standard, decent practice area all in all a very solid public course for the price.

Save Your Money

To begin with there is no starter. So you check in and then are left up to your own to figure out what the order of play is. The carts were filthy with trash in each one thatI looked at. The carts had also been hosed down, so they were soaked, seat included, with wet trash in them. The course looked like they haven't put any money into it. Fairways, tee boxes and rough were brown throughout the course. The tee boxes were all chewed up and uneven. Bunkers were terrible. Greens were so slow it was impossible to get anything over 20 feet to the hole. Even the beer inside after the round was lukewarm. Overall I would never be back and would advise anyone else to stay away. Certainly not worth anywhere near the $60 I paid and wouldn't even be worth it with a hot deal.

Whitney Farms-CT

I hadn’t played here in 10 +years, and typically you see differences as nature tends to grow, courses mature, and greenskeeper manage based on budget. Not as crisp as I would have hoped and clearly some areas needed work. Overall the course was fair and enjoyable. I would do the drive from NY again.

meh

Tee boxes in horrible shape, very little grass and uneven. fairways were inconsistent, and fairway to rough was lacking. greens were ok, seemed long, and speed inconsistent from green to green.

Decent course

I had a good round at the Black Course. It’s a nice course to play. The greens could have been faster.

Extremely Slow and unfriendly

We were placed behind a tourney that went extremely slowly. 3 of my foursome quite after 9. I joined with 2 other players and was threatened by a male following the tourney for “hitting into them” which none of us did. Sponsor of the tourney then came out and yelled at me for doing something none of us did. A complete abomination!

WHitney Farms 7/3/22

Love this course, hard and each hole is different…. The only Negative words I have not enough water jugs on a hot day
I’d don’t remember seen any of them. So you have to wait for the car person to come around. And the 8th hole has been shorten Changing it from a par five to a par four…Don’t know why? Definitely changes the layout of the course.

Great course, lovely environment

What a lovely lush green manicured course it is. The greens are reasonably fast. Though it has less bunkers or water hazards, it’s challenging. The pace of play also was good. Overall it was a very enjoyable course. Highly recommend it.

Had a Blast

It was hot, but I don’t hold that against them. The course layout was awesome and the holes were just the right amount of difficult. The one thing I really didn’t like is that it was backed up we caught up to the group ahead of us and the groups behind us all caught up to us it was about four groups waiting for the previous one to finish a hole or get far enough away to tee off

Challenging

I like the course because it’s very challenging to me, good for a practicing round with friends. No easy green, up and down the hill fairways, good for those who love challenges like me.
