  • I've played at Richter Park many times over the years, but today marked what may very well be the last time I'll play this course. At a standard rate of $49 for 18 plus a cart, one would expect this course to be a cut above municipal courses and for the condition of the course to warrant the price. In its prime, Richter delivered on the prices they charged, but it seems like time is taking it's toll on this course and little is being done to stop it. Allow me to dive into the details I took issue with: 1. Greens: while most New England courses sustain some damage over the winter, especially to the greens, the state of the greens today was horrid. Bare patches abound, causing putts to jump from their lines, but I think the worst part is that the grass used on the greens is not uniform, as if bare patches are being repaired by using a different grass as the rest of the green. You can tell by the color and grain from a few feet away, and this textural difference also affects puts. In years past, fringe lines where crisp and clean but now, they are jagged in places. 2. Fairways: I will admit that as I'm writing this, the area has had about a weeks worth of rain showers. Not a steady rain but on and off throughout the week. However, the drainage on many holes is dreadful. There where many spots that where covered in standing water, and the fairways that weren't might as well have been. Iron shots get very little to no bounce, and if your shot is not perfect, you run the risk of hitting a glob of mud high into the air as you watch your ball go half the distance it should. There where also little sinkhole type depressions on one of the fairways. All in all the fairways Where just in bad shape. Others: the rough surrounding the fairways was not anywhere close to being cut uniformly, and one will find various types of weeds growing in patches in the rough such as clovers. While I was pleased with the upkeep of the sand in the bunkers, the edges of those where neither crisp nor clean. The cartpaths are also in need of repair, as there are many bumps and potholes. They have adequate stations to refill seeds for divot repair, but our cart didn't have a bottle for them on it! How can I reseed a divot if i dont have the seed bottle on the cart you provided? If the management reads this, I hope they take a trip to Candlewood Valley Country Club and take notes, as that course was once in terrible shape but recently has been turning around. If you're considering this course, I highly recommend passing and going to Candlewood. Similar prices, much better upkeep, and more straight forward play.
