Course Reviews


If you are near the New Haven area, I recommend you give this course a try. The course is up and down with many doglegs. The course was in superb condition. A very fair test of golf with length and nice greens. The 2nd hole a par 3 is the easiest hole on the layout. The 6th & 9th holes are two very challenging par 4's. Overall, I enjoyed everything with my round.

Front nine is like a park setting. You see the green, wide fairways. Don't slice/hook as you'll find yourself in other fairways. Bunkers really not an issue. Very large greens. Becareful fast too, but readable 20ft out! Back nine different world. Almost all sidehill, down/uphill lies. Narrow green not seeable. Woods abound so hit straigt. Whole coruse good shape. Green few ball marks. Tee area spotty.

I like Laurel View but have not yet played it enough to evaluate the back nine, which seemed to be much tougher than the front nine, which I have time to play a few times in the last couple of years. My experience with the members last year was not great as they gave no advise on what was ahead. This year's experiences have been much better. The course is a superb challenge and the only complain I have is that we were given a tee off time twice which was pushed back by almost an hour. Its almost like they are in a hurry to take the money and let the golfer stew in his own juices. 2nd date was spoiled nominally by a scramble competition and since I had an afternoon shift at work, the five and half hour trek was somewhat tense. Tension is not a good companion on Laurel View, where the straight shooter is better prepared than the wild man of Borneo. I do love topit my skills against this little darling though and I will revisit again and again unless they delay my next tee off as well.

One of the best around

This track is a tough one. Bring your A game with you because if you are not straight off the tee, you are hitting 3.
They have improved this course over the past 3 years without taking away from the natural surroundings. Don't let the first 2 holes fool you into thinking this will be an easy round.
Overall this is a wonderful course...call ahead.

hello

i love your course
