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
Nice Day, Good Golf
Came here towards the end of the season and enjoyed beautiful Saturday morning weather and great golf for a reasonable $48. Looking forward to prices dropping more, as Fall has arrived. Anything under $50 as long as playing conditions are pleasant, and this is a good deal on a weekend. Weekday nights I would try and get in under $35. Nice layout, can put up solid scores. Great course to warm up with if you have an upcoming outing or something.
Best I have seen it for a few years:
Stopped playing here regualy for years because the conditions had gone down hill. First time this year playing so I don't know the condition all year, but I thought the greens were pretty good for this time of year and course looked great for this time of year again...I used to be a regular for many years....Maybe they're trying to restore the course again..I will give it another try in 2018...
Starter was a joke
The starter was one of the rudest people I have ever met. Unapproachable from the start, He’s far too old and arrogant to be working at a golf course. Disrespected me and my friends. I will never play here again because of that cranky old man. Other customers jokingly stated how typical it was for this starter to give people a hard time. Tunxis needs to do something about it
Links without the ocean influence
The green course at tunxis plantation is quite the gem. I am a particular fan of links style golf and this course brings the feeling home. In traditional links style the course goes out and away from the club house only returning again for the 18th hole. The tight fairways and smaller green complexes in great shape and the greens rolled true for the most part. I had never played the course before and came away with an 11 over 81. Birdies are out there, but placement of tee and approach shots are key to making them fall easier. My handicap index is 8.2. Course would prove difficult for higher handicappers as again narrow fairways and smaller greens are harder to hit and the rough in places was very tall. Over all though I thoroughly look forward to playing the green course again. Playing the white course this coming Sunday
Weather Perfect Golf Day
It was one of those days where nothing goes wrong.
Weather was Amazing, price was amazing, the course as usual is in very nice shape. 2 1/2 hr round for 18 holes for $10.....WOW.
Same course on weekends with cart is $66.50.
What do you think?
It was a good day!
Nice course..very good condition
Layout is good
I just played this course for the first time yesterday. For the price, it was the best condition for what I paid for in a long time! Definitely worth your while!
Played this course while visiting, fun layout and greens were in good shape, rolled true. Would definitely play again. Staff very courteous
early spring play
Course was good, but greens recently aerated and were a little off, but course was ok otherwise.
tunxis green course
The course was in very good condition even considering the aerating of the greens. A fine layout to challenge all players and a friendly helpful staff.
course was good, staff was friendly, price on GolfNow
was higher than the price at the course.
This was first experience playing the Green Course at Tunxis Plantation Country Club. I was pleasantly greeted at the Pro Shop and provided some basic information regarding the golf course. When I arrived at the starters station, the starter on duty was very personable and accommodating - a good exoerience to start off your round. I atrived a few minutes priort my 12 noon tee time, but was able to tee off immediately. The course was in good shape overall, but lacked sone direcrional signage to navigate from hole to hole. We has a morning rain, and the greens wererelatively slow. I enjoyed the wooded landscape, and the pace of play was good for weekend play. I would play here again.
