Putting was tricky in the snow. Here you can see the line my ball took when I missed a 15 footer for birdie at two. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 11/28/2021
Fortunately, the snow abated and the course ‘dried out’ a tad by the back nine. This is the thirteenth fairway and green. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 11/28/2021
A pond guards the approach to the fifteenth green; it will catch an errant shot at this par-4 of 385. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 11/28/2021
The seventeenth, a beautiful par-5, plays 531 from the blues. It’s open in front, making this a possible two-shotter. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 11/28/2021
A previous photo I took during the fall. This is the first tee at dusk. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 11/28/2021
During the summer, as this photo shows, Tunxis Green lives up to its name--abundantly. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 11/28/2021

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
Another view of the eleventh fairway and pond, as well as the uneven terrain in the rough. 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
We had a foursome and playing together for the first time.. The front nine was really closed we finish with the score of: (95) (96) ,(97) and (97). That's what you call a close call! Everything about this course: The tee box, fairways and all the greens was in great
condition. I thank Golfnow for this opportunity to play in such a beautiful Golf Course. We all had a great time plying here. Iif you never played here before, I would recommend everyone to come out and play a round of GOLF at Tunxis Country Club in Farmington, Connecticut.
Thanks Golfnow for this fun day of golf!
Nice course and in good shape. Saturday at noon tee time finished at 6 PM so they’re clearly not monitoring pace of play.
Fix your greens
Played the green course and the green still stink. I played 6 weeks ago and they were aeration done. They have never healed. They are not good. Makes playing less fun. You have to smash the ball to get it to the hole. Every other courses greens have come back but these.
Super Slow Play
Management tried to put out two outings, one on each course, and both were running late. There was no starter on duty this day. I was scheduled to play the Green Course, which had 3 groups ahead of me on the first tee. It took 40 minutes for the tee to clear and took me (and another single) over 15 minutes to play out the hole. There were two groups on the second tee and 3 more groups out on the fairway/green...like this the rest f the day.

Great day good weather and the best of friends get together. Good time with old friends with a well maintained golf course. No waiting on the tees or in the fairways, we just kept on playing.
As always, great place to play
Another great round here at tunxis. Never an issue with pace of play or conditions of the course. Greens and fairways were gorgeous and a few holes they were mowing but the workers always pause and move so you may continue your playing.
Amenities I didn't use because the bar did not open until 11 and I was out on the course at 9am.
My tee time was for 9:33 but the starter allowed me to get out at 9:03 since nobody was playing prior to my tee time. Def bonus points for getting out earlier.
Unable to use driving range due to mowing
Bought 18 holes on GolfNow. Well worth the money. I’ll definitely play here again.
Bad time was had by all
We had an outing yesterday for someones birthday. 8 players, 2 4-somes. We played the Green course.
Here's the problems:
- Course in poor condition. Tee boxes a mess, areas in front of the greens looking bad. Overall poor condition
- Not one hole had any kind of yardage marker. PLEASE install the 150 yard sticks like everyone else does.
- We paid $71.00 for this mess.
After the round we all headed to a local pub for a couple beers. Not one guy said they had a good time and no one is going back. Some serious changes need to be made to this course. A few of us played at Stanley in New Britain the day before and the experience was 10x better there. Electric carts with built in yardage trackers, great conditions of the course, and cheaper rates.
