Nice 9 hole course

People there are pretty terrific from the Pro Shop folks to the on-course folks like the guy with the pipe and the guy with the dog.

Pace of play was a little slow due to walkers but that's understandable. You do have to be a little careful with stray shots as holes can be close to each other, specifically your 6th tee drive wandering out into the 7th hole fairway and tee area. Again, that's fairly typical here in New England.

Fun round of golf

The staff was very welcoming. The course had some late summer burn put but still very playable.

Bad experience with Golf Now

Purchased the golf now Hat Deal, did not realize it was only for nine holes. Looked at the confirmation and there was no indication on the confirmation whether it was 9 or 18, so we assumed 18. When we made the turn My two partners had teed off and then we were pulled out of line to pay causing a great deal of commotion at the tee and a number of angry golfers. Wish Golf Now was more specific and totally transparent to avoid this type of confusion

Enjoyable Round, great staff

Played with my 15 year old son(beginner), I am approx 15 handicap and shot 39, I putted very well and did not need to hit driver from the tips. This is a great beginner course, not a ton of trouble off the tee and is very straightforward layout until you come to the 9th hole which is a good finishing hole. having not played here in 15+ years I was unsure where to land it and took it into the 1st fairway.

Staff got us out on the course quickly and the bartender offered to fill our water bottles without us asking, it was a hot day we were very appreciative of that.

Since it was so hot we had no one in front of us and played in under 2hrs with ease.

If you are looking for an enjoyable 9 hole course this is a great place to go. I will be back soon probably for 18 next time.

Good 9 Hole Course

This is a good 9 hole course. Well kept, has a driving range and decent bar/ grill. My only issue was that it was advertised as an 18 hole course. I think this is more of a Golf Now issue, but it was very annoying. Especially after paying $50 each. Another $20 for carts to play each hole twice. I hope Golf Now fixes this as the course manager was also very confused as to why it was so expensive for 9 holes. (He comped as for the back 9, which was nice)

Great for the money.

Course layout and condition of the course and carts, etc. were great for the price.

Only beer, hotdogs, and cheeseburgers served, but the room and deck were nice.

Pro shop looked okay at a quick glance.

Work on your game

This is a sneaky good course. Although it is tucked away in a little neighborhood, it's actually quite accessible from as far away as Manchester or Boston. It's not rated up there with the other 18-hole tracks in the area, but it is a good test, usually very reasonably priced, and you get to use most clubs in your bag (maybe only a couple mid-irons for those with decent length). The greens were quick on this day, which was a little bit of a change. It's been quite dry lately. One thing I like about this course is whether you go with your kids or your wife or four fairly strong players, everybody seems welcome. Par 35 with just one par 5, but it's got everything you need.
