Great day at Tunxis

I have played Tunxis many times and for the most part it has never failed to a quality round of golf.mother staff are very accommodating and friendly and always ready to help when needed. Fairways and greens are in great shape even after all the rain we have had lately.

Pretty Good

Had a fun day at Tunxis. The course was in decent shape but the greens were aerated and I wasn’t told and they were charging full price. I think 72$ is too much but it seems all courses are overpriced these days.

Wet weather
Walked

Very wet course

Booked on line with a cart. When I got there I was told due to the wet conditions, they weren’t allowing carts, so I had to walk the 18 holes. I am 75 yrs old and have had two knee replacements. I was not offered a refund so I had to walk the course. Water standing on fairway and one hole in particular, was completely flooded. It was an additional long walk to go around the standing water. Was somewhat disappointed with the course and the conditions. Golf now did give me $12 back for the cart but I would have rather a rain check or complete reimbursement.

Glad to be golfing

The golf course in general was is great shape for this time of year. The fairways were clear the greens were still a little bumpy and the traps were in decent shape.

Sloped greens makes for a good challenge

I had a lot of fun playing 18 holes here today. The greens were fast and sloped which made for a fun time putting. Very friendly staff and very enjoyable day out on the links.

Quick round

Played 18 in 2:40 as a 2 some. Course is in good condition for the most part, only nit was greens had been punched ~ 1 week ago & still featured some aeration holes making it tough to keep putts on line at times. Otherwise the fairways, rough, bunkers, tee boxes all in good shape.

Angelo would never allowed the greens to look like a moth eaten rug. His children on it did not learn from their father

Getting ready for Summer!

The course was really in good condition for this time of the year. The tee box and fairways are really in perfect condition, but the greens has been aerated the course should be in perfect condition in three weeks. The course is really good right now if you don’t mind about the greens being aerated. My best friend and I had a blast, Today was a little chilly, but we had a great time , just getting out is great. This course has two eighteen and one nine hole course. Today we played the green course, next weekend we will try the white course.

Snow Whitens the Green

Snow Whitens the Green

Having booked this round at Tunxis Green yesterday, when weather conditions looked passable, I was committed to playing golf today. This morning, unexpected light snow showers were depositing snow that stuck on the greens, which were fast becoming ‘whites.’ I have never played in the snow, and don’t much like playing in the mere rain (This year over many rounds, rain landed on me but once).

On the front nine, I putted through the light snow on every green (see photo), though the snow was abating by the sixth, ending completely by nine. The effect was like putting slow greens, only my golf ball was covered by a moderate ring of snow upon reaching each hole. Surprisingly, I played well, challenging myself to make GIR’S--and ended with twelve. It did help that things had become relatively sedate (that is, snowless) on the back nine. While I don’t believe this will convert me, exactly, to playing in snow in the future, the experience today was surprisingly decent. despite ‘the white specter.’

I’ve reviewed the Green in some depth last year, so here’s a capsulized version:
The Green’s layout resembles a kind of parkland/Scottish links hybrid, and somehow Al Zikorus blends the diverging styles well. Throughout the Green appear many ‘dune-like’ mounds scattered about the peripheries of these fairways and around the greens themselves, much like the ones once favored by, say, Jack Nicklaus. What is done exceptionally well are the newer greens of the outward half (which has the more Scottish flavor), as these surfaces roll and tumble much like greens found on a links. What toughens the course most, however, are the four long par-3’s (when played from the blues), none of which should have you swinging short irons.

The two par 5’s--at two and seventeen--are also quite good. As for the par fours, they’re consistently solid, and the best here are beautifully designed. There is also nice variation between long, medium, and short, along with different ‘looks’ on each hole. I’m particularly partial to the stretch of holes between 3 and 6 on the front, and there’s an equally good run from 13 through 16 on the back.

All of this adds up to a firm challenge, but the best aspect of Tunxis Green is that it never falls into the kinds of traps that make a course unfair, cruel, or overwhelming. The balance of shot values on this course is simply terrific; you seldom get two ‘hard’ shots in a row.

Conditions:
Between average and good (depending on what aspect you’re considering), but so is just about every other layout in Connecticut during this time of year. The fairways and roughs were decent, the greens less so. Over the second half of November, most courses take a nose-dive following the changing and much colder weather patterns.

Some conclusions:
Tunxis Green is always a captivating layout for me, and it remained so today even under adverse conditions. But it should be excellent once again by next spring. While not dramatically situated, the course is part of a setting that is, nonetheless, classically secluded and beautiful, and is graced by mature, handsome trees. The pair of previously taken photos I’ve included among the six show this course during better weather conditions.

Relatively good for this time of year

Greens were aerated and very difficult to putt. Fairways were as clean as they could get considering how windy it was. Made our balls hard to find even in the fairways. Not the course's fault.

Nice day but could be better

It was a beautiful day to play golf, but this meant a lot of people out to play. The course itself was in fairly good condition for late fall, but the greens had been aerated and were very patchy. The sanding after aeration had not been done well so the greens tended to be very bumpy. Hopefully this will pay off in the spring
