Forgiving Fairways

The course is challenging but forgiving. The course has many hazards to make it difficult when you miss the fairway but is open enough to recover from an errant shot.

Weekend Warriors

Had a great time but the pace was slower than expected. Windy conditions but overall I thought the course was in excellent condition.
Staff members were pleasant and did a good job getting the foursomes lined up for play.

Always backed up

I’ve never played here where it wasn’t backed up. This was the first time playing on a weekend. Tee’d off 30 minutes late. Starters and rangers are terrible

Course is a great value

Course is one of the best public courses in the Merrimack Valley. The course was in Excellent condition with lush green fairways and fast and fast greens. The only drawback is that it does not have a practice range. Otherwise A-plus

Unique Course in Massachusetts

A unique layout, high on some hills, with most of the course down below. Beautiful vistas, especially in the fall and in the late afternoon. Fairly short course but undulating fairways and raised green complexes add a degree of difficulty. It was a pleasure to play the course. If you play the back tees, the course would be more challenging, but still fair and enjoyable.
