Tradition Golf Club at Oak Lane is situated in the quiet town of Woodbridge, just 20 minutes from New Haven. Formerly known as Oak Lane County Club, the course was both renamed and renovated when it was acquired by the management team at The Tradition Golf Club at Wallingford. Many of the holes were updated but the golf course retained its challenging but playable nature. Though the course is player friendly enough to appeal to players of all skill levels, there are still several challenges in store. Numerous strategically placed bunkers lurk along the greens and towering trees also frame most of the holes. The holes are mostly straightforward with a few tricky doglegs to keep you on your toes. You'll also be confronted with the occasional water hole. Both your accuracy and short-game skills will be tested at Tradition Golf Club at Oak Lane.

It’s early in the season and the golf course as good as expected for this time of year. A little hard to put with the dimples but in a few more weeks It should be prime..
Looking forward to playing it soon thank you

A decent course for the money. Greens were just aerated and they are redoing some bunkers.

Another great day!

Played on Sunday and love the NEW carts. Staff let me know they are finishing the last few holes of their bunker project. This place is special, if you haven’t played Oak Lane you’re missing a gem!

Last round of season for me

I wanted to play my last round at my favorite track. They did an awesome job with the leaves! They are still rolling and mowing the greens, they were so fast! I spoke to one of the staff who let me know that they are running a promotion and all their tee times are going to be $5 cheaper on their website www.traditionatoaklane.com. I love GolfNow but I think that’s great, I’ll definitely book there now! Thanks again

Love the course

Really enjoyed the course today although cart path only is a bummer to keep things moving. My only complaint has to do with the carts. The course and facility are always great but as nice as they are the carts can't get out of their own way. in addition it was hit or miss weather the brake held.
