If you want to play on a course that is absolutely perfect condition wise from tee to green...PLAY HERE! The staff is outstanding and they really care about everything. My only disappointment was that I allowed some players through to delay my experience enough so that I could spectate a few groups of the Natick High JV golf match but was unable to see anything as the opponent was stuck in traffic getting to the course. You have to love how much Sassamon Trace gets behind their youth and the future of this great sport. Thank you!

Friendly staff- challenging course - a good time - Fairways were good- a good mix of par 3's and a few long par fives- I am looking for a place to replace Lost Brook in Norwood. I'll be back .

9 hole municipal muni built on a capped landfill, manages to have your attention despite lack of length. It is generally narrow and has precise targets. Greens are small and well guarded by bunkers, rough or water. When the green looks accessible the fairway usually slopes dramatically towards the worst gnarly rough around. The first time I played it I was annoyed: each subsequent round reduced the annoyance and increased my appreciation of its diabolical features.

Played and reviewed this course prior to this round and was again rewarded with a nice time. Greens were recently spiked and top dressed but still rolled great...should be in prime condition by another week. Staff took exception to my late arrival from traffic issues and was out with no delay. Everything was just A W E S O M E ! ! ! Thank you again!

This course, though a relatively short 9, demonstrates a management who have their priorities in good order. The clubhouse is spare and may actually be a double wide mobile home, but EVERYTHING else about the place is first rate. A driving net (never seen one before, but very useful amenity), an accommodating and chill atmosphere, friendly, helpful staff (warned us to hustle out to avoid a junior league following us), and once out on the course, a leisurely, and well-paced play, inspiring us to be especially generous about encouraging a play-through.

Most important, the kids are being taught well, given the shape of the course. Green divots repaired routinely, traps raked, fairways watered immediately behind us, just a completely satisfying golf atmosphere.
