This course is simple and decent for the price, but it is in need of some minor repairs and upkeep.With some replacement of carpet and a coat of paint on a few things this course would be an excellent value for the price.The landscaping is neat and the help is very pleasant.The course has mostly standard fare as far as the holes go with the exception of one horizontal loop and a pseudo-pinball hole.Other obstacles include the standard windmill, loop-de-loop, lighthouse and castle.Although there isnít much creativity in the holes, they are the classic design of mini-golf which we appreciate.It also follows another of the classic mini-golf styles in that it looks like the course was stenciled into a giant slab of concrete.The course isnít all that difficult and the pars are set very high so a decent round of golf will have you shooting at or under par.Other than that thereís not much that sets this course apart from others.Itís not a must play, but its not a bad one if youíre in the area.

 

 

2012 Update

The course hasnít changed very much over the years.While we found the carpets to be in good condition the starting mats were not.They were also set back from the carpet of the hole so there was a strange little piece of concrete in the middle of your putt.We failed to mention that this course also use metal cups for its holes so there is always the drawback of the inconsistent drop that comes with them.All of the obstacles were in good condition and looked like some maintenance had been done on them.We found the course to be a little tougher than last time.The first putts are fairly straightforward but the second putts are tough as some of the carpets are uneven and it makes it hard to make a slow putt.Most of the obstacles are of the ďputt through this varietyĒ so there are a fair amount of opportunities for aces.†† Like some of the other courses weíve played in Connecticut this one has the great redeeming factor that it is only $5 to play, which is only $1 more than when we first reviewed this course eight years ago.Itís definitely worth the play if you are in the area but is likely not one you would want to travel far to play.
