Golf Advisor: Top Courses in New England
The course was in great shape for this early in the season. Traps were well manicured. The greens were fast but the brakes were hard to read for most of us, not many putts over 15 feet went in. We're going to try this same course next week to see if we learned anything.
One of my favorites
You’d think on April 20 golf courses would still be ‘getting ready’ for the season. Not at aTunxis, the White Course was in excellent condition which mean it’ll only get better. The White Course is truly one of my favorite courses around. Love the layout and openness. And the long par 5’s are absolutely challenging (for me anyway). The greens were near pristine. Great course, terrific value (GolfNow), can’t wait to play there again
Furst time at Tunxis
This was my first time playing at Tunxis and it was on a whim, but sure glad I did. I got there early to hit balls and putt, which I typically do to try and get the speed down before I head out. Everyone was super friendly and I got sent out early since there was a gap in sending folks out, but even being paired up in a twosome we didn't catch anyone until we got to 15. The tee boxes were well placed and level, the greens were fast and tough but well maintained, the fairways gave you some decent roll, and the rough was long and wet from dew and grabbed everything that went into it. It was a good test for me as I break in my new irons/driver. I will definitely be back to play there again!
No rush, it was happy to play with my friend
It was so nice spending time with my friends holiday morning.
Not clouded and pace of us.
Relax and great waking, good exercise for me.
Great course will play again
Great course too bad I had some nerds behind me besides that all good.
Course looks good!
Good layout, good conditions. Only note is there is an ungodly amount of goose poop on the course. I get it comes with the territory and I’m not sure if there’s anything to mitigate that, but if there is, I suggest it and you’ll have one of the best affordable courses in CT.
No Rain Check
We had a tee time for a foursome at 9:30 am. It was raining and the forecast showed rain continuing all day. They did not close the course and were allowing play without carts and therefore would not issue a raincheck. Golf Now would not credit my charge card but they did give me credits for future play.
Played in November and the course was in pretty good shape. I would definitely play this course again.
Not the same Tunxis
2020 has been a strange year due to the "virus" and courses have had to do different things but Tunxis seems to have missed something along the way. They lost their long time pro and I am not sure who actually runs the show anymore but on several occasions now I have gone to play and there is no Starter, with people doing whatever they want though mostly considerate, and certainly no one monitoring pace of play on the courses. This latest round I found myself in a threesome that became a fivesome because the group in front of us decided to drink and do shots on the tee box every other hole after they hit their tee shots. Mind you I don't care if you enjoy yourself as long as you consider those around you as well. We had the twosome behind us join us as there were two more groups backed up behind them. We watched these knuckleheads go to one ball at a time, after they found them, to hit their shots. Our five waited on every tee box and every fairway, nobody from from Tunxis around to ask them to pick it up. The result was a midday 5 hour round when we should have been able to get around in under 4 hours. And while other course have been able to figure out limited food service, Tunxis has kept their venues shut down all year. I like Tunxis for a casual round but I hope next season brings some change back to the way it used to be.
good. not great .
played the white course on a beautiful sunday in october,so i knew going in that the pace of play would be slow, so they get a pass on this. course was in good shape, greens were a challenge, as they looked as though tiny land mines had exlploded dirt , sand and tree sphegma all over making putting a experience. i would play this course again, however, i believe there are better courses around to play for the money they want..overrall, a 3 star experience all around.( did not rate amenities as none were available due to covid.)
Always great playing here!
Wonderful course, challanging, nice layout, and well taken care course! I love playing here not only for the views and well maintained greens but it is affordable for all...I typically walk so $39.00 is an exceptional price to pay for walking 18 holes. I've played the green and red courses here also and enjoy them just as much. The white seems the most challanging in my opinion. Hole 17 always has me digging to crush the ball over the water...be weary!!
Wish the beverage cart was out though ..could of used a cold adult beverage but im sure covid has something to do with that.
Pace of Play was Ridiculous
I’ve played Tunxis many times in the past and yesterdays round was so bad for pace of play I won’t be returning anytime soon. Every single hole on the Front White Course no lie we had 3 groups waiting on the tee. It was so bad even though my son and I paid for 18 holes we had to walk off the course. No excuse for play being this bad
