This course has two par 5s over 450 yds for women. That is a bit much.

Great shape but slow play

Course is in great shape for this time of year. Maintenance crews are doing a good job. The rough is a little bit tall so can be hard to fine your ball here and there. The only problem with Norwich golf course is the pace of play is always super slow. If your going to play there it’s normal for it to be at lease a five hour round. Used to play it a lot and used to be a member there and it always plays slow. Other then that it’s a good course

Management greed

We avoided this course for the last part of the Summer as the pace of play and lack of Ranger made it a maddening experience.
We have voiced our concerns to management that fall on deaf ears. So on a warm day in Nov we tried it again. A frost has pushed back Tee times 1 hr 1/2, not under Managements control. But in this day and age how about an email or warning of the delay.
Our 1210 tee time was pushed till 1pm. With carts due in by 4 and the back log of foursomes management knew dam well there was no chance of completing our round. Yet they took full price anyway!
The starter told us that it has been the most profitable season ever with packed in Tee times every day.
So complaining gets you no where, and its a shame, as the greens are in excellent shape the staff is friendly and was doing their best to get golfers out. To include the hackers. Which do not belong on this course with No Rangers to assist.
I guess i have to remember this is a City owned course. Regardless management cares little about the spirit pf the game and more about lining their pockets.

Slow Play

Have played this course before and slow play is common. They need bring back a thing from the past, “ RANGERS “ to keep play moving at a reasonable pace.

Meh

General course conditions were somewhat average, the greens though were real good. All greens here are virtually the same size and circular which was kinda of a bummer.
Overall its a solid muni course, right down the road from Mohegan Sun. For the money it’s worth playing.

Fairways were thin sporty grass. Cut short. No carpet there for sure. Many dry areas away from the fairway.

Don’t know
What they did to the fairways. They are not like they were a month ago. I don’t think it is just fall.
They may have been serrated but they were cut too short.

Nice course but slow greens.

Course conditions were good overall. The greens were very slow and tough to read. It is not a woman friendly course because there are many elevated greens adding to the distance to the holes.

No starter or Ranger

Pace of play has slowed considerably the last two times playing the course. Tee times spaced 10 minutes apart are too frequent for a public course with a wide level of skill levels on the course. Lack of starter results in twosomes not being paired up, which slows play further. No ranger on course to monitor and help speed up the pace of play leaves faster groups no options other than to wait for slow groups ahead, which results in rounds 5-6 hours long, or skipping holes to avoid rounds longer than five hours.
