Not the Green’s longest or toughest par-4, the 4th (378 yards) still demands two good shots to reach its elevated green. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 11/12/2020
The huge mounds at seven create an amphitheater effect; the green surface itself is a tricky one. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 11/12/2020
Stray too far from eleven’s fairway and you may find yourself on the mounds—or not find your ball in the water. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 11/12/2020

14 is a classic, dogleg-right four par of 385. It leads to this raised, well-bunkered, two-tiered green. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 11/12/2020
Sixteen, a 424-yard four-par, requires both length off the tee and precision into this green. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 11/12/2020
At the third: pondering the break of the green. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 08/03/2020
The fourth features a raised green, a pot bunker, and trouble awaiting over-hit approaches. At least it’s beautiful. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 08/03/2020
View from the front of the tee at five, a superb 205 yarder with links-style contouring at the green complex. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 08/03/2020
Five, again: One of my favorite par-3’s in Connecticut. The contours seem like something out of North Berwick in East Lothian, Scotland. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 08/03/2020
Seven: One of a slew of strong holes here. A big pair of grass bunkers (along with a sand bunker—unseen from this view) guards the putting surface. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 08/03/2020
Eighteen: For those who like challenging 3-pars, Tunxis offers four, including this bunker-flanked finisher. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 08/03/2020
Awesome Staff and conditions
This track has 45 holes. I was fortunate to play the green course again. From tee to greens the conditions were above average. The staff were more than professional and courteous. After my round I had time to squeeze in another 9 holes. I checked in to see if it was possible to play the Red course as this course is usually used for 9 hole players and I have never played it before, The gentleman at the counter said he just put out a group of 7 high schoolers on the tee, he said maybe they will let you go through. I asked him how much for the 9 hole re-round? He said "don't worry about it" I was more than surprised, I will definitely be playing here again. Good customer service gets my $$ all the time!!!
Big let down for the price
I have always wanted to play Tunxis as I heard it was a great course. Reading reviews the night before I was worried as they weren’t very positive. Wasn’t going to find another tee time and figured we would try it anyways. For $71 it was a big let down. The tee boxes were horrible, some having very long grass all over them, some having barely any grass with sand and crab grass. Greens were poor with dead spots and crab grass all around the fringe on all of them.
I think the fairways are cut to low. Pace of play on weekends is 5 1/2 hours. Need a ranger. Great layout and still a good value.
How do they charge for this place?
My group of 11 and I came down for a guys weekend last weekend. We were hit with bombshell after bombshell. The only bar/lounge open was the “broom room” which seats 3 people (literally) and has no AC. The out door patios are closed for the remainder of the season because tunxis had a Covid out break (8/13/2021), you’d think we would get a heads up? The tavern was closed. So essentially the only place to grab a bite to eat and have a beer was “mills truck stop diner” 4 miles off the 101. Because of excessive water there is 3 temporary greens and over four temporary tee boxes. When we asked for a refund they said they still think we can “have fun”. Yeah a lot of fun it is playing golf in the heat with no place to recover and relax with friends. Reopening for everything they told me is October 1st. How they still charge eveeyone is beyond me. I really hope Tunxis gets their act together. To top it off my room had no air conditioner. Because of the heat I spun in bed like a rotisserie for 2 nights. Never again. Beware of terrible Tunxis
Daddy Daughter Day
Always enjoy all 45 holes at Tunxis GC. This round I was accompanied by my beautiful daughter who was home from college. We were lucky to get out a little early and were paired up with a young man and his GF, They played 9 holes and we finished the day with the course almost to ourselves. Conditions were very good, greens were perfect. My daughter was able to pull down her first "birdie"
All in all... a perfect day.
The course is nice. The course just needs some serious grooming. Weeds in the fairways, on the fringe and on the greens. Legit crabgrass. Even some of the tee boxes looked like you were hitting from the rough. It just needs to be groomed better. It could be awesome if better care was taken. Staff was great though.
I’ve played this coarse many times over the years and I’ve noticed the the coarse has declined, greens and tee boxes are in less than desirable condition. I’m not really sure why for the amount of money their charging and the amount of play it should be in much better shape
Very nice course. Pace was slow with 3 pot heads in front of us lighting up and swinging at air or clouds of smoke. Hoping for better luck next time!
Good value but so much missing
Course was in good shape but very wet from all the rain we've gotten. Rough was difficult as it was soft, wet and thick. Greens varied in speed from hole to hole - no consistency.. Very few yardage markers made it a guess on many shots on what the distance was. Flat course but narrow on many holes means accuracy matters. Very disappointed that the snack bar was closed when we went by it, Only a couple of drinking fountains available on course - considering it was over 90, I went through all my drinking water and Gatorade and then no drink cart. And still no ball washers available. On the positive side - the hot dogs in the bar, were amazing.
Pace of play during the week here is solid. Group of 3 in front of us were older and knew how to keep it moving. I was paired with a group of 2. We finished the round in 3:40 walking. If you play here or the white course on a weekend forget about it the round will take you over 5 hours minimum. They don't have rangers riding the course so unless you call and complain no shot at keeping it moving. My advice is play here during the week if you can and if you have to play on weekend make sure you are calling the ranger as soon as the first 5/10 minute back up on whatever hole it is happens.
