"Gillette Ridge is a tribute to the great traditions and challenge of golf. Undoubtedly, it is one of Palmer Course Design Company’s best creations. As you journey through Gillette Ridge you will be awed by its natural beauty and dynamic layout. It is truly a masterpiece that will test all your playing skills and a golf experience that you will want to repeat time and again."

At Gillette Ridge you will enjoy one of your best golfing experiences ever. Gillette Ridge will challenge, amaze and excite you as you maneuver through a variety of terrain; tree-lined fairways, spectacular carries and several natural obstacles.

Gillette Ridge was named to honor Francis Gillette, a local 19th century reformer, politician and business leader, whose house still stands on the site.

Legendary golfer and world renowned architect Arnold Palmer has crafted Gillette Ridge to capitalize on the site’s natural beauty. Streams, lakes, elevation changes, and mature trees are all part of this tremendous golf experience. Like Palmer himself, Gillette Ridge is a bold and daring design that will raise golf in Hartford to new and exciting levels.

course is not in good shape This course was excellent a few years ago. Fairways have divots everywhere. Greens were in poor shape wit lots of ball marks. In need of some serious maintenance. July 17, 2014
Gillette Turf in great shape. Greens on the slow side but we have had some rain lately. July 15, 2014
work in progress Course condition is way down from treats past. Pace of play was very slow, pickled up at 10 as many people left because they weren't going to get done on time. July 14, 2014
Terrible green conditions Not even worth the $35 special I paid for it. The fairways aren't bad, but the greens are terrible. Way too many dead spots which does not allow good rolls for putting. If you are going to play in Bloomfield, then pay the $80 and play Wintonbury Hills instead. It's worth the extra money to play at a quality course. July 14, 2014
Has possibilities but needs tons of TLC I was looking forward to playing my first Palmer layout and impressing my buddy who was hosting my family and I for the weekend. The first clue of something amiss was all the broken carts in the abandoned tennis courts... not a good first impression. It wasn't all downhill, the starter was nice and so was the guy in the clubhouse. The course made us think with all the blind shots and beautiful vistas but the greens were just too frustrating. They were in terrible shape: dead spots like a dalmatian, unrepaired pitch marks, aeration still visible, and the ball just wouldn't stay on a line. The fairways weren't much better: everybody is laying up to 100-120 and it was all chopped up. Drainage seems to be an issue too because there were soggy spots in a lot of areas. The public courses I play in NYC might not have the pedigree or fancy layout but the greens and fairways are in better shape for far less money. July 13, 2014
Still a great layout Course is still a nice layout, challenging but playable for ant handicap. Plenty of everything ( water, canyon bunkers, nasty rough, etc.) course needs some work but mostly from the lack of care of patrons, ball marks on greens, divots and clumps everywhere. This is still a local course that just more tlc. Worth the golf now price. July 13, 2014
LAYOUT IS CHALLENGING Played with friends who have played this course many times in the past and while I thought the course was in good to very good condition they said it was not being kept as well as prior years. Overall I enjoyed the day and would play this course again. July 11, 2014
