Course Review and Comments

The Course is well taken care of, this is evident in the well kept fairways and rough. The greens however are average at best with many pitch marks (not expected of a private course) The layout was nothing short of very average. The Condos being squeezed into the smallest of areas pushing out of bounce just feet off of the cart path on some holes give this course a public feel. Water comes into play on 1 hole (#6) but only for the long hitter. There are no risk reward shots, no dog legs, nothing to make this course overly challenging. The player who can hit a straight tee ball will do well here. not one tee box brings requires the golfer to contemplate playing a fade or a draw.

The club house and dining facilities are great. The 19th hole set off of the Grill room is excellent as well, the server (Danny) was the friendliest server I have ever had and made me feel welcome. Highlight of my trip to Andover COuntry Club

Pro shop was good nothing great, nice selection of clothing and average selction of equipment.

Driving range sod was terrible, no where near the nice grass you see at a lot of new england private country clubs, plus a slightly hooked tee shot would hit a condo.

Overall I would play this course again but never spend money to be a member here, much nicer course next door at Renaissance and even the set up at the other Andover Club Indian Ridge is more exciting.
