Course Reviews


Simply one of the most classic designs in golf, The Course at Yale is a treat to play. Many memorable holes and a masterful use of the land to shape holes. The greens are almost unrivaled in size and contour. The only course I've played that is similar to Yale's design is National Golf Links. The one thing that has burdened the course for years has been it's conditioning. I played this course back in the early 2000s and, to be honest, the conditioning was equivalent to that of a local muni. Since then, the conditioning has steadily improved. As a result, the design elements have really been able to shine - especially the huge, severely undulating greens. The Course at Yale used to be in the country's top 100 courses, and with the recent conditioning improvement, I can see a return to the rankings.

mitprez is either smoking something, or went to harvard. this is an excellent course. great design and well kept. the par 3 ninth is one that will get alot of double-takes. go short or long and you are a dead man. there is an 8 foot ridge (or a depression, not sure what to call it) in the middle of the green. at first i thought it was a chipping area behind the green, but no. i was glad i didnt miss long.

This was an almighty challenge, careless tee balls cost me dear. Wet fairways cost me a couple of strokes, but the deer, turkeys and birdsong made it all worthwhile. I love this course. It has everything, although it is not necessarily at its best yet. Greens were superb, whereas the last time I played here the greens were not very good. Even the Muni was played over better greens then. In time, when sufficient experience is gained over Yale, the scores will better reflect my game. Real challenge and a delightful experience.

Classic early 20th Century course. The photos in the bar of plows being pulled by mules during the construction of the course says it all. If this course were properly maintained it could possibly be a Top 100. Maybe Yale can sell this to a wealthy Alum that would give it the love, attention and money that it needs!

mitprez must be a Harvard man. I played Yale on the same day he posted his review, and the course conditioning - while not perfect - was more than adequate to play without winter rules, in November, in Connecticut.

This is as bold a design as I have seen in a long time. So many memorable holes, with green sites that -while being template holes- are just outstanding.

The conditions at Yale are on the rise, but with conditions aside it is a design that is among the best.

Gimmicky design, terrible use of the land. Conditioning is so bad that the course is literally unplayable.
