About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 70
Length 6120 yards
Slope 124
Rating 70.1

The Tradition Golf Club at Wallingford is one of the most affordable rounds in the area and it has received praise as one of the best golf courses in Connecticut. The par-70 layout is player friendly enough for beginners but low handicappers will also find it to be a fun round. The holes are fairly straightforward though there are some fairways that have very narrow landing areas that will test the accuracy of even the best golfers. Numerous bunkers are strategically placed along the undulating greens and water also comes into play on the occasional hole. The golf course starts out gently but becomes progressively more challenging on the back nine. The most memorable hole on the golf course, the par-3 12th, is a water hole that features an intimidating island green.

Divots

I just don’t understand why you don’t fix your divots. Greens were full of them.

Annoyed at staff

I signed my partner and me up for a 12:20 tee time. When I got there was told they moved our tee time to 12:30. As the first tee was already backed up, I knew we would be fighting darkness to finish round. I was told by the starter that we should finish with no problem. As it was extremely slow, we played the last two holes in the dark. It took over four and a half hours to play. I am very annoyed that they would move our tee time without consent.

Superb service

There was a glitch with my golfnow reservation. The pro shop and starter worked together to team me up with another 2 golfers. Otherwise I woulda played alone behind 4 somes!!
Course was in tip top shape from tee to green.
