Greens are as good as you'll find anywhere. Other than that - little would make me return. The course is quirky...lots of blind shots, weird 90 degree dog legs that "dogleg" at 190-200 yards...many Par 4s requiring 4 irons or 5 woods off the tee. Many. The architect totally got carrier away... not a fun place to play. Took 5 and a half hours to play on a Friday afternoon in September. "Dan" the Ranger was great at watching the slow play. Did nothing and when he came to our group (facing another 6 minute wait to hit), my playing partner politely commented that it had taken us 4 hours + to play 13 holes. We were told by Dan that "you need to relax" - with the message delivered with just short of an attitude. "Relax" at a course that is painfully slow where "Rangers" do nothing about it? Hmmm. The $74 (riding) is $20 more than I'd ever even consider paying here where I ever to come back... which I assuredly won't. I have played 41 of the USA's top 100. A 9 handicap. This place wouldn't crack the Top 500. Really did not like the course. If you hit the ball 240 or more yards straight... you'll end up in a bad place, usually. This is NOT what a golf course layout should be. Give me a Ross, Raynor or Pete Dye course any day. Cyprian Keyes is just quirky and overpriced.

This is a beauty of a course. It is difficult but not brutal. The scenery is beautiful. The maintenance is excellent. I am a high handicapper but thoroughly enjoyed my round. I would definately play again.

This is my favorite course within an hour of Boston. The risk reward here is amazing for long hitters. You will never hit a blast off the tees, cut the hole in half, and end up in a ditch.

Very tricky course, no holes are the same. Conditions are up there with the best. Greens fees a little pricy, but with the fees a little high, and newbies losing about a hundred balls the first time they play there, THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW PLACES YOU CAN PLAY WITH GOOD PACE!!!!

Too many hackers out there playing courses with long hitters and ruining everyone's pace. Everyone do me a favor and teach some golf etiquette before teaching them how to swing.

played the tips. w/o local knowledge of the course i was a little lost. a lot doglegs, elevated greens and blind shots. i would say this is a tough course, especially from the tips. The first 2 holes kind of throw you off because theyre not as hard or like the other 16. Some holes you had lay up off the tee and others you shouldnt because of the length and they were equally as narrow. Be straight or lose a lot of balls. On the plus side i found a lot of balls. Impecable grounds keeping. Had employees hand raking every tee box. Great greens and fairways.

Not a bad course and value. Some hinky holes, especially the first two, that require local knowledge. Nothing special, but it's good and in good shape generally.

Difficult course, but far from impossible. Some holes are "target golf" while others are wide open for the taking. Can easily cut a few corners even from the black tees, and it's far from dauntingly long, even from all the way back. All 4 par-5 holes are eagle opportunities for mid-to-long hitters, especially #18. Definitely not a walking course - don't cheap out and skip the cart. If you want real "target golf" with a little more rough around the edges, drive another hour north and hit Shattuck.

Had a chance to play here for the first time since playing it when they opened in 1998...wow...what a difference. That course that i remember in 1998 is nothing like the one it is now. Found fairways much wider then i remembered and there isn't half the trees that they use to have. Conditions for a public course were as good as any private facility in the area. This place has fantastic service and makes you feel like you are a member. The starter and rangers made me feel welcome and even helped me look for my ball on two holes. Ranger actually gave me two balls to make up for the ones i lost...I was lucky enough to catch the Director (Terry O'Hara) to thank him for a great day with me and my three friends. He actually gave us a quick tour of the new Callaway Performance Center and then let us hit a few shots to see the difference in proper club fitting. I was so impressed and can't wait to make that our preferred course in 2009. If you have not had a chance to play it you will find a course that is remarkable from top to bottom....and if your 60+ you get a cart and green fee during the week for only $40 bucks.....WOW!!!

This IS a very fine course IF you can hit golf your ball straight. I wore out my 5 wood off the tee. I found the conditions of the tees and fairways to be great.

The greens do have ball marks made by frusrated hackers who over their heads playing here. Most of the greens have more severe breaks than other public courses. It is easy to 3 putt a number of hole. Holes 3-7 are especially brutal and can ruin your chances of shooting a good score. 5 is especially difficult and plays long and tough with everything right being lost. Forget ANY CHANCE OF WALKING Cyprian Keyes. The pro shop should post a warning the front 9 can not be walked by those in average shape. I was physically beat the next day after being stupid enough to carry my bag in the heat.

Despite my complaints, I liked the upscale feel here and course conditions. I think the course is too tough if you play over a 15, but that's just me. Be sure to hit the outside patio after your round. There are none better in my opinion to a cold-one and recapping your round.

Good Par 3 to Star on or practice. MA GOLFER are you really sure about what your taking about? Because you can use a driver and I think your good shots are bad is because you use your irons to drive off of. Please try that course again because Mt. Pleasent is not BETTER THAN HERE!!!! GO REDSOX!!!!

What's right: Great clubhouse with very good food, great staff, and a nice pro shop. I would not hesitate to have a function there as the facility is very nice and the food is almost always good. The teaching facility is nice too.

What's bad: The course layout is awful. You could play all 18 and not use your driver. It is the definition of target golf. What's worse is that there are a lot of holes where you are penalized for a good shot. I have found the greens to be hard (not accepting shots) and usually pretty beat up. A fun challenge occasionally, but I could not play it every day.

Tough track. You might want to leave the driver in the trunk. If you can survive holes 4-7, you have a chance at a decent score.

This is a great course unlike HOLDEN HILLS they treat there costumers nicely ,and they show respect. There greens are excellent,there fairways are well taken care of, and the holes are very chalenging even for the more skilled golfer. There golf pro Terrie Ohara is the nicest person ive ever met. He always makes sure that you can comprehend every thing that he teaches you during youre lesson with him. He is one of the best golf teachers ive ever taken a lesson from.

Had a chance to play here for first time in October. Came in with seven clients and wanted to get a first class experience. Coming from a private course I was restricted to how many guests I could bring. Trying to find the right environment I had heard nothing but great things about Cyprian Keyes. I called Director of Golf Terry O'Hara to explain what I wanted accomplished. We arrived two hours prior to our tee time and had a clinic for my guests. There teaching facilities were better then my private club and the video instruction was state of the art. All my guests had a great experience and would recommend there school to anyone who wants to get better....awesome!!! I was also told and found out to be true that Cyprian Keyes will be the only place available in New England for the Callaway Performance Center. 3 years ago I went to the only one in California and went through a fitting that was truly incredible...I was told it will be ready in March and I will have all my customers down for this special treatment....
After the school we headed out to the first tee. We were greeted by a very nice older gentleman named Bobby who could not have been nicer. We also were surprised to find our carts all had our names personalized on them which was a great touch. As we headed out we found the pace was very good (4:20min) and the beauty and conditions were spectacular. All my clients thought they were playing a private club and I was pleasantly surprised at all the amenties throughout the facility. Coming from a private facility I am use to paying $125 for a guest fee and paying $75 with a cart was a great value. The course was a great challenge and I probably wish they cut a few more trees down....in fact we were so impressed with everything that we planned our company Outing there for 2008. I don't normally write these types of reviews but after my experience I want people and other golfers to see what a top notch facilty they have in the Worcester area.....great job to all at CK...

Played this course for the 2nd time and thought it was great from top to bottom. Course had just come through aeration and the greens were fantastic. Played on a hot day and Player Assistants handed out ice cold towels..never seen that before and was a great touch. Greens were like a private course and thought the staff was top notch. Inside clubhouse had a high end wedding going on and it was packed on the 18-hole course. Thought that any golfer who wants to get treated like a private club member would want to experience what Cyprian Keyes has to offer.
