Not worth the price

This course was one of the nicest best kept beautiful courses around. but that was not the case today. The front 9 was in better shape than the back 9. Fairways all around had lots of bare spots and weeds. The greens were spotty and rough. The cart paths were in terrible disrepair and it was cart path only. I’m glad I didn’t pay full price and the discount price was way too much for the course conditions. I hope they can get the course back to what it was.
The restaurant is lovely and the views from the patio are amazing.

This course has degraded considerably

I used to look forward to treating myself to a Round at Crestview. It used to be excellent.

The past two times I’ve played were disappointing. Greens in very poor condition.

Pace was very slow. 5 hour round.

Worth 35 dollars a round, sure. But not 70!

Nice course layout but conditions were terrible

Many of the tee boxes and fairways were burnt out or soggy. Hard to rationalize why these two conditions existed simultaneously.
Greens were aerated and had not been cut or rolled.

Very Disappointing

To say we were disappointed with the conditions at this course would be a gross understatement. We were told that the greens were aerated the week before so we were prepared for that. What we weren't prepared for was the deplorable conditions to the rest of the course. From the tee boxes that were mostly dirt to the fairways with their patchy and sparse grass to the areas around the greens that were uneven and rough. The cart paths are in terrible shape too. We have played Crestview in the past and have always enjoyed it. It's too bad that it has been so thoroughly neglected. It was not worth the money we paid even though it was discounted because of having a coupon. The municipal courses in the area are in much better shape and a much better deal. Don't waste your money here.

Trash

Really sad to see this place go down the drain. It won’t let me upload the video of the 14th tee but trust me when I tell you this place is garbage. People who are 5 starting this place don’t know a thing

Adding my review like the pro told us to

Just here to reiterate my review of this dump, as I have no personal connection to this course. Like the past few reviews have stated, you are wasting your time and money if you play here. Greens are shot, fringes are burnt, fairways are pretty bad, and tee boxes are dirt. It's sad when the mini courses are in far better shape, but this is the current state of crestview. Pass this place by, members ( not sure how you could justify joining this place,) should be irate at the conditions. Every little shortcut that can be taken, is taken. Don't expect to find water in the ball washers, or a cart girl that can take a card in 2022, but what you will find is tires and trenches in the weed and grass filled bunkers.

Please save yourself the frustration of playing this dump.

Embarrassing

The pro should be embarrassed, and you will be too if you catch yourself playing this course. It's only saving grace is that we are in a drought, otherwise you could add that the course would be under water to the line of issues at this course. On top of everything mentioned in my reviews below ( again, that was the suggestion from the pro that refuses to play this course) the 4 man crew that maintains this place essentially played 10 holes with us, getting in front of and behind us from 1-10. They were taking the 3 wheeler through the traps, which was a complete waste of time since they look like garbage, and in fact have garbage throughout them (tires in the trap...)
When this was mentioned to the workers, it was as if WE were the idiots for playing golf mid morning on a Saturday in the summer. Everyone working here knows it's a dump, you need to know that before booking a round as well.

Avoid this course at all costs. You have been warned again.

There are better courses in Agawam

Just me again, following the orders from the pro and leaving a review. I cannot reiterate this enough, save your money and play somewhere else. If the pro refuses to play this course, do the same. Sad to say there are better courses in Agawam, as this has become the bottom of the barrel.

Just pass this pile by, you will regret playing this course

You have been warned

Worst course in the valley

DO NOT BOOK A ROUND HERE.
100 degrees out, not a drop of water in sight. Way overpriced, I wouldn't pay more than $20 with a cart to play here.
DO NOT PLAY THIS COURSE, I AM WARNING YOU.
trenches cut throughout the bunkers, sets of tires in other bunkers. Clearly the owner uses this golf course as well as elmcrest as a write-off, so don't expect anything to ever change. The pro, who stated that he would never play this course, should be embarrassed to swipe your credit card, knowing the shape of this course.
Let me say that again, so you read it for a 3rd time before you even think about booking a round here. THE PRO REFUSES TO PLAY THIS COURSE.
You don't need to even hear anything else. Let this course die. It won't let me add the picture, but being in a trap was like being in the grand canyon, there is no maintenance going on at this course. For $30 more, you can play The Ranch. Do yourself a favor and pass this course by

Heist of the century

How far the mighty have fallen. You would never believe the LPGA played here. Not only has the course fallen off hard, the staff could not care about anything. The pro even said he never plays here, but gladly took out 70 dollars to ride this pile of doo-doo. It's so bad that they will not give you an avenue to make a complaint to the owner, who clearly does not care either. Cups had not been changed in a few days, and the greens were in terrible condition. When you talk to the staff, even they know what a horrible course this is, and when there are only 4 people to maintain the entire course, of course it falls this hard. Do not play here. I will say that again for anyone that sees an open tee time and had a soul. Do not play this course. Let it die off as it should.

Needs TLC

This course needs some TLC to be returned to its prior greatness. One of the better layouts in the area and previously a top-notch club, the conditions have slipped dramatically in the past 5-6 years. Tee boxes were in rough shape, lots of burnt out areas in the fairways and the greens don't roll quite like they used to. Staff was very friendly. No water or iced tea like they used to have in the gazebo out on the course, or in the 10th hole stand. Cart paths are in bad shape. Somebody save Crestview!

Better than the previous reviews

I live in Agawam and golf at Crestview a few times a year. Other than that I do not have any personal connection to the course. However I just read some reviews from somebody who obviously has a vindictive against this course. It looks like they posted four times nothing positive. Once is enough. In regards to Crestview Out of the four courses in Agawam it’s one of the nicer ones. It’s a shadow of what it once was but it’s still a good course with a good and challenging layout. Major concern is that the cart paths need some work. But overall the course is maintained well. Unfortunately the signature trap on number 18 in front of the green is overgrown but that’s minor. I’ve always found the staff to be friendly and the patio is a great place to sit out and enjoy an evening around one of the fire pits.
