Crestbrook Park Golf Course

  10 Reviews

Pretty challenging course, very green, good shape, grass on fairways and greens a little long, but probably protecting course from recent hot conditions. Great variety of holes, very walk able course, will definitely play again. Restaurant on property was another pleasant surprise.

Course is in great shape, tee boxes on the hard side fairways beautiful and the greens rolled true. If you can keep it in the fairway you can score well get in the ruff you might not find your ball. Overall everyone in my foursome had a good time. We will be back.

A few bare spots on some fairways. Greens were smooth, a little slow, but perfect speed for the slope of the greens on a public course. Moderately hilly, which adds interest. Several holes play across overall course slope, so you can expect to get sidehill lies. Other holes are up or downhill. A nice variety of straight and dogleg holes. Rough was playable, not punitive.

Despite growing up about 35 minutes away, I'd never gotten around to playing Crestbrook Park while living in Connecticut. My interest in Geoffrey Cornish's designs spurred me to visit with my dad while visiting recently, and I'm glad I made it.

Crestbrook Park isn't going to win any big awards, but with its friendly staff (helmed by local native Jan Wivestad) and consistent stream of local play, it seems primed to continue to fill a need for pleasant, affordable golf in mid-western Connecticut. The course's virtues and defense come in the form of some elevation changes and at times scary-steep greens, which are fairly simple on the front but get a bit more characterful on the back. It's a solid blue-collar test of golf in a nice park setting.

Friendly staff, course has intelligent layout with narrow fairways and some difficult par 3's that make for a challenging round. Fairways and greens were in good shape, some of the tee boxes were pretty rough. Good views.
