Nice walk, fast ride.

Overall a nice course. Have played the green course a few times this season, until today(97 degrees) walking, and always finished in less than four hours. Max was 3:50. Course is in decent shape. Very flat. Somewhat challenging par 3’s. Biggest issue, due to COVID, is the lack of any water on the course, and only one token portolet. Practically speaking, there are no facilities. So, plan ahead.

Can’t understand all the good reviews.

Met friends from out of state here and agreed this course not so great like reviews said. There are lots of other courses in Connecticut that stand above these course. Lots.I wonder who writes these reviews as we found the service bad, the greens too small and was very targety. We played white course.
Rough was super burnt. When you call to make tee time, you speak to a call center that is not on site, so you get mis information. Won’t be back.

Walked

Facilities were closed due to virus issues.
Course (Green) itself is pretty flat....an easy course to walk. Generally in good condition, though the rough is uneven with some big patches of clover. Easy to lose a ball where you would not expect to! Pace of play on the two weekdays we played was fine....strolled around in a bit under four hours without ever rushing, and never waited nor were we pushed.
Staff was friendly and helpful.
Played with my wife. Course sets up well for women with many flat lies and very fair tee placements.

Easy to walk

First time playing the green course today. Decent track w nothing memorable about it. Flat terrain - Easy to walk. Played in 3:50. Course conditions were poor. ALL Bunkers had not been raked by grounds crew in weeks, fairways were dry and hard on several holes. Greens were hard. Club house & restrooms are closed, 1 port-a-potty on course, 1 vending location on course.

Great day for golf!

Everything at course was fantastic, although I’d like to point out that it was constantly difficult to identify yardage away from the hole. I don’t have a yardage measurement tool and there were very few markers to estimate distance.

Course was later out very well but greens were punched too recently

Putting was essentially pointless. The greens were punched recently so putting was worse than mini golf.

Tunxis Plantation Green Course

This course never disappoints. The grounds are always well kept, and the staff is friendly and cordial. The practice green is large and true to the pace of greens on the course. The carts are well-maintained and cleaned after each round. Tree-lined fairways and strategically placed bunkers make for challenging tee shots. The rough can get thick, sometimes making it difficult to find an errant shot. The greens are large targets with just enough undulation to remain "fair." Water is present on the course, but if you can put strategy over pride, it shouldn't affect you at all. With 3 challenging courses to choose from, Tunxis lives up to its reputation.

This is a links style course?

Just because you put a few mounds on the side of a few fairways, does not make it a links style course. Relatively easy layout, although a few narrow fairways. Greens are in very good shape. Only 1 porta-potty on the entire course and all the regular bathrooms are closed due to COVID-19.
