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
Course in lousy shape- rough not cut at all in a lot of places- fairways and greens were fine but tough to hit shots if in the rough-
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.
group ahead of us kindly let us play thru.....clear sailing from the on!
Course was in great shapes, greens were fair and rolled true. Pace of play was great and staff was very friendly
What a nice place! Searched for a course on line and picked Tunxis green. Paired with two others. Course was in great shape, carts new and clean and most importantly we did not have to wait on a single hole. This made for a great round. I plan on coming back when in Ct. visiting.
Greens roliing nicely
Course overall in good shape, rough needs a cutting
First off and played in 2 hours
Nice facility, with two 18's and a 9, easy to get tee times. Very easy course to walk and in good shape. Greens are a bit on the slow side for my liking but in good shape. This was our second round of the day and the replay rate is fantastic.
Great value, greens were in great shape for early April. Fairways were good, not great, but can’t complain.
Thank you for the excellent rating. Yes, we are in good shape for early spring. Please come back and see us!
First of the year
Good shape for early April. Would come back again in summer
We look forward to seeing you this summer! Safe travels!!
Cool day b4 the rain
Great day to play. But had to bundle up. Had the course to myself, saw only man walking his dog.
We are happy you braved the cold and came out and played. You have to take advantage of the playable days this time of the year. We look forward to seeing you in the spring.
