Diamonds from the Rough

Firm, fast greens roll true


If you use your driver even once, that’s a lot


8-iron lies are the best you can hope for from the rough


Holes are all intriguing, and intermittently spectacular


Pace of play good, in spite of the woods: when it’s gone, it’s gone


Even after you’ve hit these fairways, your troubles are far from over


No exaggeration to say this difficult course was carved out of a hillside forest


If you’re aquaphobic – or afraid of snowmen – skip 8 after the 7th hole and go directly to 9


Holes are very secluded from one another, but link together nicely for the walker


You’ll love many holes here – trouble is, not many love you back


Beautiful hills, where Massachusetts approaches Vermont


Slope ratings equally severe for ladies as men


Both 9s finish with challenging tandems


Superb conditioning

    A top notch and difficult course that carves through the woods. Some of the comments above about not using driver all depends on the tee’s. Agreed there are many 3 wood/hybrid tee balls from the gold tees. I normally play the blue tees and certainly more room on holes to let the driver out. Recently played the tips and there was plenty of distance to let it go and work the ball both ways. But as stated above, if its gone its gone. The course is very penal if you go through the rough into the woods on many holes. It is fair but can seem tight when your tee ball is not at least at B+.

    That being said it is a wonderful design. Beautifully routed through the woods with well thought out strategy in mind on every hole presented and every shot required. The greens complexes are well thought out and visually very nice when picking a club for approach. This course is one I have travelled to from years from the New Haven area and never felt it wasn’t worth the trip shooting 76 my best round from the blues to low 90’s on a not so great day.
