Played 18 on the white course. Play was backed up from the start. Played as a twosome so I expected to be waiting but the group in front of us made no attempt to speed play. Conditions were bad. The fairways were long and there was little to discern the length of the rough and the fairways. Likewise the grass on the T boxes was very long which made it difficult to judge t height. The greens and bunkers were in good condition. Overall not worth the $66 paid to play there.

I love playing Tunxis..White or Green Course...But come on Management/Superintendent the rough was like it hadn't been cut this year. Had difficulty finding balls that had ventured into the rough. Not sure if it was the weather during the week which halted maintenance but I wasn't pleased. Also, the greens were unbelievably slow. Played the White Course, shot 87 , 10.5 Index...so take it from there. US Kids Tour was playing Green course which was impressive. Let's get the course maintained better, please. Bill V

Facility has 45 holes, plenty to chose from, played the white course which is more wide open than the green course. The course features a large pond that has 4 greens connecting within the water feature. Greens could have been cut better to increase speed, bunkers were so so, in need of more sand. Even wider open then green course, still required you to place ball on certain sides of fairway for better approach shots. Very friendly and helpful staff, grill room menu could have been better for such a large facility.

Course in great shape with nice challenging holes. Some tricky greens but overall in good shape. My only complaint was there was afoursome ahead of us that insisted on playing the blue tees and had no business doing it. Ranger said he would say something to them, with three open holes in front of them. We ended jumping a hole ahead of them and then had no delay. Staff extremely helpful, I played through golf now site, you get greens fee, cart, and a small bucket of balls with your greens fees. Will,come back again, but try to avoid holiday weekends.

Tunxis is a great course. Plenty of options between white and green courses for 18 holes and the red course for 9. Pace of play was great for a Sunday, less than 4 hours for the round.

Friendly staff in the office... checked in went to starter, paired up with another single and off we went. Course was mostly wide open and was in great condition for Dec 16... Neat design with 4 greens going out into the water. If I was walking could of got confused on which way to go after the second par 5. Had fun was a great deal on Golf Now!

Have not played here in over 20 years, for my own reasons. Played the white 18. Greens rolled nicely...little hairy on some but its December!. Overall pleased. Lots of signage, but still a few miscues on back 9. The only thing I did not like was the carts and lugging my bag back and forth. No carts in lot.<br/> Played with couple gents from Wolcott, CT area<br/> Happy Holidays<br/> ch better<br/> FYI: Lack of any bunker raking was pathetic...The caliber of player here should have been much better

Another great afternoon at TPCC.<br/> Course is in great shape...typical park land layout with plenty of long and generous fairways, challenging par 3's...you really have to work to get into trouble here and a lot more water than most places but all avoidable with shot making. Well worth the golf now price.

After a hot, dry summer in CT it was a pleasant surprise to see what great shape the course was in. The fairways were in great shape and the greens were true and rolled well. First time playing the White Course. Course is challenging, fair, and fun to play. There were a few times that it was confusing where the next hole was so a little extra signage would have been helpful. Recommend this course to anyone who appreciates good course conditions.
