They need a new greenskeeper!

Great layout, miserable conditions. It's sad to see one of the best public courses in the area be in such terrible condition. It's clear that the owners have decided to spend as little as possible in maintaining the course. Fairways are in tough shape, tees are beat, and greens need attention. This course is a poor substitute for what it used to be 5-10 years ago...

First Time Playing

Great Course, Early Season Round

Really enjoyed my round. Being it is only my third season playing, and first time at the course, was definitely challenging. Early season you would have expected conditions to be rough, but they clearly take care of the place as it was in great shape, especially the greens. I took the advice of a previous reviewer and grabbed a yardage book, it helped significantly as there are some blind shots and hard to see hazards. Unless you love walking, would suggest taking a cart, the course is pretty spread out and there are hilly spots. Even this early it was open for carts driving on all holes except 11. Would totally recommend everyone to go check this place out.

early Spring conditions

Not surprisingly, the course was in very good shape for this early in the season. Greens were a tad slow but that is not unexpected.
Off the greens and fairways were a bit tough as the grass hasn't started to grow, so chipping was not easy. Had to lift ball a couple of times to get off dead, clumpy grass. This will all change as the season really gets underway.

Wish we played here before

Considering opening day, place was in great shape. Whoever takes care of the greens deserves a raise, cant believe how true they rolled. Staff was incredible and helped us out when GolfNow kinda botched the booking. Practice area and pub werent open yet, but only because it just opened for the season. Not complaining, just cant comment on it. Staff suggested Grumpys pub a mile down the road and it did not disappoint. Seriously, the greens are amazing. Tough, couple two tiered, but they were in amazing shape. I swear they covered them with tarps or something end of the season.

Only suggestions I would have is the green to tee directions and yardage. Some would chalk up to never playing there before, but the tee box yardage could be better. I would highly suggest grabbing the yardage book at pro shop. My group normally uses 18birdies app for distances and scores, but it didn’t line up with course. For instance, hole 1 on course was actually hole 2 on app, and tee boxes didnt line up from real course to app layout. Not complaining, but something worth mentioning. Place really was in great shape. If youve never played there before, some holes might be tough to navigate hence the yardage book. I absolutely smoked a 300 yard drive slight right of the fairway on the back 9 (cant remember the hole) however I didnt know there was trees/rocks/hazard. Again, not complaining, just worth knowing.

Overall I would 100% play there again, and my buddy actually got his first ace on shared green on first par 3. Breakfast Nook enroute was also a great start to the day, highly recommended.

Beautiful place

Love a course where each hole is cut unto itself with no houses. One of my favorites in New England.
Always in great condition with memorable holes.
Egan's Pub's food is great, too!

Challenges...

All the clubs are needed for sure...course in good shape and with the RAINY NOR'EASTER that came through about two weeks ago, the course is fine...

Greens lightening fast making the undulations bigger...

Play it if you are at least willing to make a few sacrifices of your golf balls to weird bounces due to side hill landings and since this is the FALL...have some one ALWAYS be a SPOTTER and do use...white balls...red, yellow and pink are MOTHER NATURES colors...

Rangers need to actually do their jobs

Pace of play is horrendous, and it's clear as to why after seeing how little the rangers do to ensure good pace, as well as just general etiquette. Was so glad this past Sunday to have a foursome with someone dressed thinking they are Happy Gilmore, Bruins jersey and all, smoking weed and blasting music from a bluetooth speaker. This with an early Sunday morning tee time.

Gas carts are garbage (and have no choke on them, which is a blast on a cool Autumn morning), and the layout doesn't make a lot of sense. Probably not a walkable course given the large gaps between some holes.

Could be a great place if the rangers had a clue. They never were even able to ID our group when asking for pace of play. Every other course can track how pace is, why is it so hard for here?
