Course Reviews


Sunday July 3rd, 2011. Although it was damp, playing conditions were comfortable. This public coarse has a private feel to it. There's not one soft hole to the whole coarse. You earn everything. Most holes have length and bunkering. I belive it is a family run layout and the starter, Joe, started his 1st day of work, and he could not have been more affable. He was courteous and a great conversationist. I would give the course a 4 stsr rating.

Course is in great shape. Course layout is fun and offers hazards in areas that challenge. Greens roll true but are mostly flat. Scenario is nice and fairways are fair and in good shape.

I've played this course only once on the advice of a friend. It's a nice layout and well maintained. It is however, a poorly run golf course. On the day that we played, our foursome endured a 6+ hour round of golf. The course inserted a small tournament into the mid-day of an open Sunday round. Players were backed up 3 and 4 groups on a hole. Many, many golfers that we met complained and their issues fell on deaf ears. For the course to have no response to their members shows me what the course is really like. We haven't been back!

Played here on Thursday and it was an absolute delight. This was a fantastic discovery. Thanks to Bob from Southbury for mentioning it. Catering staff were very friendly, especially when my partner discovered that he knew the family. Had to rush of. I had so much fun that I forgot I was working in the mid-afternoon. If first impressions are worth anything, this will be put on the CT. tour in perpetuity. We were even given a discount for our round. Now that is the best start to any day - seven days golf for the price of six. We Scots love that kind of deal.
My partner remarked that it was the first time he had ever played and not lost a ball, but that does not mean it is easy, but you can see everything in front of you. Yardage Book is well worth the five bucks. It was better than my GPS. Thank you Timberlin and all who made our day such a treat.

This course is really fun to play at, I go all the time with my friends. Shane6ball is right, they need more carts and needs to be more organized. The dude who works at the place where they check to see if you payed and to get scorecards is a nut-job! He sent me to the back nine instead of the front cuz there was a group of people just finishing the front nine. I was like wtf!?

Fun course, took me a while to find the place though, make sure you know where you're going if it's your first time.

To start, the course is gorgeous. I played it today for the first time. Just horribly organized. I called at 11am for a tee time, Fred said, come anytime after 1pm we'll be wide open. I showed up at 1...to about 20 people just standing there waiting to go off. The problem, no carts available.. I did not tee off until 1:50 and then was behind foursomes all day. I finally finished 18 at 6pm.. Dark. They sent me off the back nine, and when I came to play the front there was the afterwork crowd, who were all waiting to play a quick nine, with no one to organize who was next. I had to wait for everyone to go, and then finally go last. Did anyone say, oh your by your self ? play through, no.
Just a long long slow slow day, at a very well kept course. I was frustrated, and bummed that 18 holes could take a single person over 5 hours to play, because of poor organization and management. Make your tee times early, confirm a definate tee time, and hope theres a cart around for when you get there. But like I said a gorgeous course with 3 putt greens, tough. Too bad the day was spoiled.
