Grassmere Country Club

This is a great course buried in the farmland of northern Connecticut. It's only nine holes, and plays 3075 from the tips. First of all, there is no pro shop. It's just someone sitting behind a desk. It is a reasonable price, about 15 bucks for nine holes, and they also offer senior and junior rates. So off we go to the first tee, and you can clearly see they take their groundskeeping very seriously, with green, lush fairways. The bunkers were up to code, with no big rocks or pebbles. The greens are 100% filled with grass, with little weeds. Now lets talk about the water hazards, the reason I took a star off my review. It comes into play on almost every hole, so you are going to have trouble if you pick the wrong club or hit your ball in the wrong direction. I hit my ball into the buckhorn brook (got the name from google maps) on many holes. The worst time is when I hit my ball into the brook, I found it, and reached down and got it. But when I came up, their was a burning pain in my arm accompanied by dime size bumps. The cause? STINGING NETTLES! So I defiantly recommend this course for anyone, but just be careful around the banks of the brook!

One of my favorite courses when I just want a quick round.  Fairly inexpensive and always in good shape.  The last green is a nightmare, good luck with those slopes!

Being new to golf, this place is just right for me. A simple, fun, laid back course. Greens fees are $18 for 9 or $23 for 18. They only have nine holes so you just go around again and try to fix what you did wrong last time. Don't come if you are looking for PGA greatness.Do come if you are looking for a nice 9 and good craic. My freinds and I play every weekend in the summer. The best time to come is around 5:30 p.m. nobody's on the course. But neither is the beer cart... sigh...

My favorite hole is #6. The only par five, it is a hard dog leg right with a stream crossing in the middle. Hug the trees on the right side to set up for your second shot.  The greens are usually fast and some, like the #7 is steeply sloped so good luck landing anything on the green.
