Last chance !!!
I set a t-time through Gol;fnow.com at 11:40 and was playing at 12:10pm. Being late in the year the course was in pretty good shape. I think I got out for the last time this year !!!

I have been to this track several times and every time I wonder why I came back. The course is in horrible condition and is not well maintained in any way, shape or form. The greens are always a mess and there is more duck dung on the course than you could possibly fathom. Save yourself the pain and go elsewhere.

I love playing this course but don't even think about trying to play out of any of the traps as they have no sand in any of them.

Either fix the course or sell it!
I witness this course being built on the grounds of Cigna Insurance. I believed it was going to be a top notch facility. For the greens fee and its association with Cigna (although I know Cigna has nothing to do with the course!)I expected a top notch facility. Was I wrong. The traps were all hard packed...the greens were horrible with 4 different shades of grass...looks like it wasn't maintained...leaves were all over the fairways and greens....did not see one maintenance person or moving machine...rest rooms were in a great building at the turn, but were out of order! I have played only a few courses in the greater Hartford area and rank this one as the lowest. Looks like they're having financial problems from the condition of the facility.

Player of many courses
Having played this course previously several times, it was a different and more laid back atmosphere. There was no starter or ranger visible nor anyone loading clubs or taking them off the carts. Course was in better shape than what I had heard.
I heard the course was closing which would be a shame.

A rewarding round, but those bunkers...
Overall, we were very impressed by this course. The course is cut into the natural landscape and offers some of the most challenging and beautiful holes in New England. Many holes have forced carries where you must land your ball on the fly or pay a price. Lies are often uneven due to undulating terrain further challenging the player. Overall, the course is expertly maintained with one major exception - the bunkers! Virtually all bunkers have apparently been abandoned of any upkeep, often devoid of sand and chock full of weeds and mud. This could be due to financial woes facing GR, but if you can avoid these pits, there is much to enjoy. Grab a tee time on Golf Now or enroll in Golf New England for best value. Good luck with that approach shot and stay below the hole.
