"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.

Too Bad Course could be special, conditions holding it back. Hopefully, new ownership will be found that can invest in improving it.......I heard it's currently in foreclosure July 23, 2014
Tough course, lack of maintenance on the grounds Fairways and greens were not maintained. Sand traps were like cement. Glad we got a deal to play the round, I would not be happy if I paid full price. July 22, 2014
Great Course Fun round of golf. Very difficult approach shots on most greens. I play a lot of local public courses that don't compare to this place. It was much more challenging and taught me a thing or two about course management/strategy. July 22, 2014
Good value, poor conditions Great price but putting greens and t boxes were below Gillette standard. Not sure if that is the reason for good rates. Love the course layout but pace of play was slow with no course ranger in site to speed things up. Would play again but not during middle of the day July 22, 2014
OK Course - Needs Work I reserved as a single for $35+ and was told that morning before I traveled 45 minutes that 3 others would be joining me. Having arrived 30 minutes early for a 10:20AM tee time, I headed to the range and was told that the other 3 were not there, but would meet me there. About 10:10AM, 3 men came to the range and hit balls and I asked if they were the 10:20AM tee time which they said "no". Wondering if my threesome showed, the pro shop said that the were in fact my group. I went to the 1st tee and they declined to let me join them in a matter of fact way. I again went back to the pro shop and waited until a twosome checked in (which only paid $30) so I would have some one to play with. All worked out in the end. My impressions were that having played this course over the last 5 years, it has gone down hill dramatically.. No starter, few people playing the course, tee markers were off to the side instead of set up, the tee boxes were in sad shape and overall, I had the feeling that the course was really hurting. Someone will have to step up to the plate and buy this facility or I see it going under in the near future. It's sad because 75% of the holes are challenging and require some great shot shaping.

Fun but challenging This course is really fun. A couple par fives are reachable in 2 and there is one par 4 reachable with a drive. This course is challenging though with narrow fairways on some holes. Overall great course. July 20, 2014
Gillette Beautiful track but conditions need work - greens bumpy and traps not kept up too well July 19, 2014
