Who said golf was a rich man’s game? We didn’t. It was a filthy, lying cyber-bully.
For only $42, you can play 18 holes of golf on the rolling hills and flat meadows of Wentworth Hills Golf Club. That’s 40% off the normal $70 price, and you even get a cart. Buy a Groupon for dad for Father’s Day, or buy four and hit a few with some friends this summer.
Designed by Howard Maurer, Wentworth Hills is a public course that showcases its surrounding beauty: some parts are hilly and full of trees; others are flat, green stretches; and others are straight dirt paths with intermittent ramps. Click here to take a look at the course hole by hole.
Located at 27 Bow St. in Plainville, the course covers 6,310 beautiful yards. Course par is 72, and if you triple that mark exactly, you get a free snow cone. Don’t think you can swing a 216? Fret not. Golf.com says, “The goal at Wentworth Hills is to keep the low handicapper challenged while not frustrating the high handicapper.” Did we mention you get a cart? During taxing 10 putts, having a cart makes moving between ball locations less physically demanding. Think of all the fun you can have in that cart at a fraction of the normal price:
- Drive into tree.
- Drive into pond.
- Drive into caddie.
GolfLink reviewers give Wentworth Hills 4.5 out of five stars. Here’s what some people said:
- “Course conditions early in the season are sharp. The Super here is top rate and it tells in the conditions. I like the twin dirveable [sic] Par 4’s in the front and find overall that if I’m playing well, I can score. If I am not, I don’t. For me, that’s a fun course because I want to go low when I am hitting it straight. We all know it doesn’t happen very often. The staff was attentive and friendly and the pub enhancements are just straight out cool… honestly, like nothing I’ve ever seen before.”
- “If you want to sharpen your “Target Game”, this is the place to do it. The front nine maybe [sic] short, but it is tight. The back nine has hazards just in the right place. Easy to walk, and beautiful layout. The girls behind the counter at the grill were great, the gentleman at the bag drop was very friendly.”
People at oobgolf.com also like it. “Julango” said, “This is a neat course that one can play numerous times without getting bored. It is short, but with danger all around the most common phrase heard on the course is, ‘Oh, I can play that.’ There are a good variety of holes. Each hole can be played using multiple club selections. Greens are very soft and receptive to approach shots.”
Wentworth Hills Country Club
When renowned golf-course architect Howard Maurer designed Wentworth Hills Country Club, he did so in a manner that showcases the New England region. Lined with trees, the course's rolling landscapes cross open meadows and through heavily wooded areas. They rise and fall dramatically and, in spots, get intersected by sparkling water features. Beneath those aesthetic visuals, though, lurks a series of challenges, including greens that have been sized, shaped, and angled to complicate tee shots. More than 60 strategically placed bumpers also litter the course, encouraging players to take risks in order to save par or catch the attention of any indigenous PGA recruiters grazing in the nearby trees. After rounds, players can head to the elegant but cozy clubhouse to stock up in the pro shop or relax with a good meal at the grill.
