Worth the drive

This was a super fun course with plenty of challenges. Really appreciated the length from the white tees being 6,700 yd, very rare these days. Definitely helped to have two locals guiding me around the course. If you are a right-handed golfer who fades the ball you will have about a dozen opportunities to sling it around the corner. If you're a left-hander like me who fades the ball, you're in for a real challenge to keep the balls straight. Anything left would put you in danger most holes. But I absolutely loved this track. The greens were as good as any you will find in New England. Super consistent, not racing fast but certainly not close to slow. Really fun to have some par fours play in the 420-430 range. And a couple of excellent par threes. And the added bonus was that it was training day for the Air Force Base, which is right next door, so there was plenty of activity overhead. I'll definitely be heading back despite the 2-hour ride.

Western Mass Gem

Played this course in 4hr 10 min with a foursome. Incredible track with plush settings for a muni. Played the white tees that come in at 6700 yds. A true test for most golfers. The fairways are beautiful blue grass that are in great shape. The greens roll true and are in mint condition. If you like to play different tracks around the country Westover is a must stop on the schedule. If your lucky you'll catch a C5A airplane (the largest plane in the us military) fly down the 12th fairway on approach to the air force base next door.
Great walking course with minimal hills. Finally after a great experience on the course I had a sandwich at the 19th hole and some chips. Awesome food is all I can say!
If your looking for a great day of golf and some good food this is the place.
A true GEM!!!!

Good long course in shape

Fairways are good, greens are a little slow, a cut will help.
Overall a good course with some interesting shots.

Long track

We played on a day when the weather kept many golfers away. As a result, we were able to get around in a little over four hours. Despite the wet conditions, the course drained well and was in pretty good shape. The course plays long (6,600 yds from the white tees) but is fairly open so very playable for the average golfer. Over the years, several bunkers and trees that defined the character of the course have been removed, making the course easier but also a bit boring. On balance, it's still worth playing and a good value for the money.

Greens were in very good condition, fairways too! Rough was much lower than past years, which is easier on my wrists! Really enjoyed my round!

Good shape, plays long.

The course is in good shape, they have done a good job to get this ready after the winter. The greens have sand on them and are recovering nicely, rolling a little slow.
Fun course, put it on your list.

Good conditions for April

Played in 3 hours on a cool cloudy day. Took me 9 holes to catch the twosome walking in front of me. Joined up with them on the back and enjoyed their company.

Grass just starting to grow and fertilized was on the greens. Bunkers were not maintained recently but I raked out them where my ball was a few times.

Great layout and one of the longer courses in western mass. Should be in great shape in a week or two.

Early Season Golf

This early in the season, you wouldn't expect excellent conditions, which it wasn't, but the greens were in good condition and the fairways showed only minimal winter kill. Given a month or so, Westover will be a great place for a round of golf.
