Course Reviews


Great scenic course. White tees play more like senior tees. If I were to play again I would play from blues.

Sunday May 29, 2011
A very challenging track especially from the tips. I feel a slope of 124 is on the lowside. The course is very playable, although fairly tight. The scenery is great and in the fall, why drive to Maine? My one complaint is that the cart paths are naarrow, and the signage from hole to hole should be clearer. Also, I would recommend taking a cart. There is a sister course in Boston similar to this called Granite Links. There is a nice mix to the layout, and every club in the bag will be used. My favorit hole is #13. It is a short par 4 looking down, and everything is in front of you. It is a gorgeous hole, if you are into your agronomy.

ok course. Mostly good holes. Some poorly designed holes too.

Played this course on a Tuesday morning in mid-May 2010 for the first time. I cannot improve on the previous review regarding the course scenery, fairways and greens so check it out. It was just a beautiful course and I'd love to play here in the fall (with a camera)for the foliage views alone. Because the course is over hill and dale and in a quarry you definately need a cart unless you are in great shape or a billy goat. We played from various tee boxes; the whites, blues and unmarked tee boxes in between because the whites tended to be too close to the reds. I'd play from the blues in the future eventhough I'm a 25 handicapper. My only gripe was cart access at the clubhouse. Maybe I don't know the traffic pattern but we were confused or naive as to how to get the cart out of the holding area to the first tee. Does everyone backup? Otherwise a really great course and highly recommended.

I'm from Connecticut, but now living in Florida, so I've played some golf courses with contours, but this one takes the top prize.

It has stunning vistas on virtually every hole. Fairways tend to be dished toward the middle, which will help the mid-handicappers, but every tee presents a downhill or uphill challenge.

Fairways are beautiful, rough isn't overgrown, bunkers are well-maintained, and the greens are very receptive and smooth ... without a lot of undulations.

The day I played was limited to cart paths only, which resulted in a 5-hour round, but much of that was spent following two foursomes of high-handicappers on the front nine. There are some cart paths that challenge the golf cart's motor (going up) and the cart's brakes (going down) ... did I mention this course has contours? (Think Jayne Mansfield with augmentation surgery!)

I thought the price was a bit steep given it was a weekday in early afternoon, but having been away from the State for the past 20-years doesn't make me an expert on fees. I believe it was $50 w/cart ... we get some great golf in FL for $20 to $35 during the summer months (out of sight prices in the winter due to rich snowbirds' migration during those months).

Bottom line, I'd play it again ... without a doubt.

Out of the 30 or so course I have played in my life, this is definitely one of my top 5 and would definitely make a strong case for my number one.

I shot the lowest score of my life here, which is surprising because it's rather challenging. The course is beautiful and the views beat any other you'll find in central Connecticut.

Aim for the cart path on the first hole and bounce it onto the green for a nice two putt birdie like I did (great start to my day).

Will definitely be going back many times over as long as it stays in the condition it's in. Don't plan on walking though, as cart fees are included in the green fees and to walk the course would be like mountain hiking.

Right around the corner is Portland Golf Course which is also a great play, but it's hard to ever want to go there as these two courses are relatively the same price and Quarry Ridge is much more fun.

A great place if you like hilly courses. The course is very scenic. There is not much water on the course, only 4 holes have any and unless you hit a really bad drive it doesn't come into play. Accuracy is more important than length on this course, you can be in a lot of trouble on several holes if you go wide. If you want to play on the weekends during the summer, book your tee time early. Overall one of the nicest public courses you'll find.

Straight Shooters Only....Ohh And Pack a Picnic Lunch.
This course is stunning and Difficult. If you are a High handicapper Struggling to keep the Ball straight...You might need to bring a box of balls for the day. Many Tee shots provide a view that a high handicapper might want to pull out a PB&J and Enjoy the view rather than the inevitable Lost ball Blues. Hole Six I was expecting to have my lift ticket checked on my way up and the few that Follow it feel as if you are planning a epic battle approach against a rock ledge fortified green (Simply Stunning). All in all the course is well kept and a joy to travel. With Ooos and Awwws on every hole. No one hoofing it here. Come out in the Fall and See why CT is one of the Nicest States in the Union with some Superb Golf.

Best local course

The greens are very lush and true. Even the grassy areas around the trees are cut to perfection. The layout is exciting, challenging and places a focus on position of each shot. Great course. I am definitly returning with my friends. My congratulations ot the greens keeper.
