Could not say enough good things about this course.Not much play that day due to cold and blustery weather. Paid $26 for 18 and a cart. Good beer selection, hamburger @ the clubhouse. Staff could not be more friendly or accommodating. Views of foliage and mountains were amazing.Challenging but fair course. Only minor critique would be that the greens whoa little rough on some holes. Rest of the course was lush and in good condition.

I played this course over the weekend and really enjoyed it. I find the the price for walking 9 holes was very fair, and that the grounds, while not perfect, were quite respectable and playable. I will definitely be playing here again.

Don't listen to the few old negative reviews & check this place out. Just started playing here(in 2014). It didn't matter if I was the last one to leave or first one to tee off the head grounds keeper (the owners granddaughter) April is always there working hard to keep the bunkers maintained, leaves off the greens fairways..., weed whacking /pulling, filling ball washers divots.. You name it her & her grandfather put a ton of pride into maintaining this course & it shows! Price is right along with all the other public courses in the area & if they have a tournament going on they recommend the nearest courses INSTEAD of bad-mouthing them like I've expirenced many other places! The view & atmosphere can't be beat!

This course is known as a "Hidden Gem" Its come a long way since it opened 15yrs ago & is in great shape this year. The greens luckily had little damage from the long harsh winter! Tee times are taken but you won't have to be on top of other golfers out on the course. The atmosphere is nice & players & maintenance are very respectful of one another. The owners used to never charge for wives/ girlfriends who wanted to "ride along" & eventually many people wanted to "Ride Along" & once they were down the hill they would start playing.. SO dishonestly forces a business to have to charge each person who enters the course. From my research this policy is very similar at many courses. The mountain views are just amazing & worth a visit to Templewood. I do work here so yes I'm bias but come play a round & I'm positive you will have a great time! We work very hard to maintain the course & hope you can enjoy our work of art. Ask for "April" & I"LL make sure you have what you need & that your round of golf is an enjoyable experience...

Do not play here! Worst conditions I've ever seen. Owners are basically stealing from the public. Played by myself on an empty course and my girlfriend came along for the walk. Owners tried to charge her $10 just for walking on this unbelievably terribly maintained course

Played there twice. Was harassed by the course manager the first time but the second trip was more pleasant. Overall a nice course but not very memorable. Quite buggy during the hotter months so bring the repellant. Easy to walk.

Templewood is a pretty course - nice restrooms and decent conditions on the course. A person on this page said this was a "beginners" course - they obviously play the white tees and the front nine only. There is a real lack of "golf" knowledge and golf "promotion" in the clubhouse. As nice as the owners are - they don't know how to promote - and they refuse to have memberships due to their insecurity and misunderstanding about "members" and memberships - and there is absolutely no inter-club activities as a result. It is a wonder they can operate without going bankrupt - as it is the easiest course to get on to play in the region - because the prices are so high for the area - and the conditions of the fairways don't warrant the rates charged. The greens however are excellently maintained. The course is very rough around the "edges" - numerous wash outs and grassless patches in playable areas and bewteen holes. This place could be a true gem because of the pristine area and layout. As we sit on the patio and view the spectacular views of Mt. Monadnock in the distance - we "locals" can dream and wait for changes to come in the world of golfers in the area.... Kudos for the owners generous sponsorship of golf at Narragansett High School and the golf team. They deserve much credit for that vision! If only golfers ran the course - I think Templewood would be on every golf map.... Rumor has it the course is for sale - but first option goes to the town. It would make too much sense and would be far to visionary for Templeton to seriously consider!

Templewood is a great course - though I don't understand why they have increased rates. The back nine is long and 17 may be the toughest hole to par in the region. The front nine is older, better established and easier to walk (except #8) than the back which ends with two long holes - a 410 tough par 4 and an impossible to reach in two - 560 yard uphill finishing hole. I have found the owners very nice - unlike some of the comments I noticed here. If the fairways were better it would be a four star course - as the layout is the best in the region. Finances seem to keep the owners from re-investing in better conditions - but the greens are as immaculate as you will find. This course is challenging - I dare you to play it from the blues - not the white tees! You may be humbled! The holes on the back nine and most on the front are isolated and give you a sense of focus. On the back nine you see no other holes as you play - giving it a resort course feel. The owners want to sell at some point - this could be a true gem of a course. The town has first option to buy - but the towns in this region lack the forsight and or the money to make such a wise investment in the open space and recreation possibilties. The first hole is an easy downhill par five but the course gets tougher as you play each hole. I've played it numerous times and my best score is a 72. I think it was quite an accomplishment given the slope changes and the length and layout of some of the holes.

The course is very short and the numbers are not correct as to what the yardage states. The wife of the owner can be very rude and is all to clear that her interest is making a buck!

Over all I like the course, but it's more for a beginner golfer. Very short and quite easy.

Reviewed August 22, 2007

wasn't too hard and the fairways were kind of shabby. Greens were being airated so i could onlt play the front nine,which was annoying, and the greens i could play had the airation hole which made it nearly impossible putt or make birdies. some of the par 5's were quite short and i was able to drive some of the par 4's, this could be a positive or a negative depending on what you are looking for. Also, me and my playing partner weren't allowed to play through a much slower group, which was extremely annoying. overall it was a good course and the value is nearly unbeatable

Walked and played 9 holes 7/26 (carts avail). Fairways was in good condition, Nice greens, exc. maintained with slopes. Bunkers all raked. Good value at $16. Although the course is very hilly, (I hit drive, 7wd to the downhill 515 yd par 5 #1 AND the 370 yd par 4 uphill #9) the front 9 is very walkable. A pleasant surprise to newcomers.
