    What a gem of a golf course. The scenery is fabulous and the starter was very friendly and informative.(It could use a little sign so that others like myself don't end up in the fenwick municipal office .) I will return

    What a beautiful course scenery-wise! Water views on many of the holes, in fact on the third tee there is a view of a lighthouse. The fairways were sparse (very dry summer though) and the greens had just been aerated so I can't really comment on the greens. I thought it was overpriced at $28 to walk nine holes, which is why I only rated it as good. Glad I played it, although at $28 I won't play there very often.

    I hidden gem. A great escape during the cold months of December January and February when it's frozen and snow-covered ground in the upstate regions. The temperature is always 5 to 10° warmer it usually does not snow and the course never closes. During these months no tee timesare needed and the staff is very friendly. It's only nine holes and some of the holes are short. The greens are small and challenging and the big hitters don't need drivers. The sceneryis extraordinary with use of the Long Island sound, lighthouses, the mouth of the Connecticut River and old stately mansions including the refurbished home of Katherine Hepburn near the second hole.I truly great golf course which is very enjoyable to play. It is the oldest public golf course in Connecticut and re-wards even the most seasoned Low handicap golfer.. Be prepared to walk there are no electric carts available during this time of the year. Pull carts are available for the price of your green fee which is $20 for nine holes.

    The course is well maintained. Staff is courteous and professional. There is a nice spirit of collegiality among "regular" players, and a "culture" of "old time" golf courtesy is palapable. The views are beautiful.
