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
Open and easy navigation
Holes are generally nice and long but the course wide open allowing you to spray and recover if needed. Layout is done well where you literally come off the green and go right to the next tee box for th most part. Also, if you’re in a cart, there’s freedom to roam, which really helps. Tee boxes and greens are kept in good shape by the staff.
Best Kept Hartford Area Course
Even with the hot, dry weather, the White Course at Tunxis was in perfect condition. A real joy to play. I have never had an issue with anything at this facility , which is why I always go back there regularly to play.
Going Downhill fast
This is a super nice course that is going Downhill. Played on a 90 degree day and of course there was no water available which is understanding but there was no cart person and the vending machines were totally empty. Called the ProShop number and it would not go through.
Course is in good shape but they are getting top dollar for every round and have absolutely no amenities available on the course.
Quick 18. 3 hours walking! Fairways were decent but a lot of ant hills.
