Diamonds from the Rough

No. 5 and No. 8 are majestic par 4s

Excellent short-game practice facility

Ponds dot the layout amidst the hills and dales

Those back 9 fairways will flatter your irons and wedges

Woodsy on the front and then a rolling countryside back

Half the par 5s are out of your way by the conclusion of the 4th hole

Same owners as Twin Hills in Coventry – and the friendliness carries over

Water protects the greens on No. 10 and 11 – but not your heart from entering your throat

Short 10th hole from an elevated tee with water in front of the green dares you to be macho – and then laughs at you for your gullibility

Don’t pat yourself on the back for a good drive at No. 13 until you see your ball come . . . safely . . . to . . . rest . . . on . . . land

Greens are large and firm, and frequently slope steeply from back to front

Par 5 opener is scoreable if you’re properly loose and can cut your irons

Hit the course at the right time and you can really zip around

Quintessentially rural Connecticut River Valley layout

Sloping 4th fairway difficult to hold from the tee

Traps are smooth, large, and filled to a nice depth

Upkeep good, even with the uneven terrain

Lovely routing
