Great fall golf
Great fall golf. The staff was very friendly, the course was in awesome condition, and the greens rolled fast and true. We've had a lot of rain the last few months, but the staff has done a great job keeping the course in excellent condition. It's always a good time playing at Wintonbury Hills.
Like the layout.
Course was ok. Greens were beat up. Some bare spots in fairway. Not a repeat, sorry.
Not crowded. Pace of play good. Staff super friendly. Could have used a beverage cart. Very surprised?
Nice looking course
Course is in fantastic shape nice looking and very clean
Great turf quality, interesting greens, puts a liv\e to the myth of the "basic muni" given its quality.
A popular, important course in the heart of Connecticut
I've been playing Wintonbury Hills since it opened in 2004, and I'm thrilled that it has been so successful. Not only is it an excellent amenity for residents of the town of Bloomfield and Hartford County at large, but it is strong enough to merit a visit from farther afield. Maximum rates creep toward $80 at times, but between the open, rolling Pete Dye/Tim Liddy design and the characteristically excellent conditions, the course delivers, as it always has.
Perfect night, perfect course
This course was in fabulous shape last night. We played the back 9 with our league. The greens are in great shape, but the entire course was in excellent shape. The bag staff is helpful and accommodating. So happy to have this gem in Bloomfield.
Pace of play
Great course, great conditions year round. Just prepare yourself mentally that your round will be 4 and half hours plus. I’ve been here on weekdays and weekends, mornings and afternoons, and in all times of the year. I’ve never had a round under 4 hours. The course gets a lot of play from all skill levels wishing to play a Dye course, which is fine. The problem is that the staff does not speed up slower groups or recommend struggling golfers to play an easier tee. Would definitely play it more or consider membership if the rangers and staff patrolled the course and kept play moving. Nobody wants to have a 5 hour round waiting to hit every shot. As Arnie and Jack have long been preaching, “while we’re young!”
Having played Wintonbury Hills dozens of times while growing up about 25 minutes away in Avon, Connecticut, it was a treat to return for the first time in a few years the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Sure, it was chilly and the greens were a bit bumpy from late-fall aerification, but the course was as fun to play as it always has been.
Pete Dye and Tim Liddy did a great job serving up a course that high handicappers can navigate and lower handicappers will still enjoy - an ideal muni situation. The long par-4 14th along the reservoir remains one of the coolest holes in New England, and the bouncy turf makes every full shot interesting.
Restricted Cart Use
Great course, always in good shape. Fall rates were in effect bringing out many more people. Had a frost delay but the starter managed to get it to +30 minutes by our 10 am tee time. We finished in 4.5 hours with minimal waiting. Some holes were still full of leaves and 1st cut was high causing us to search hard and long for normally findable balls. Nice GPS equipped electric carts but cart access to some fairways (#5 the worse) was restricted causing delays in hitting shots. Carts in a restricted area will stop and the only way out is to back up. Pace-of-play could be improved if the carts were allowed closer to the greens and on more of the fairway. Still an awesome course to play. One of the best public courses in Connecticut.
Top notch course
This course is a challenging but fair layout in excellent condition. Fairly wide open with some forced carries. Only complaint is that their prices are sometimes higher than comparable courses.
Fantastic Golf Course
Course is in great shape. Greens are exceptional -- firm, fast, true and challenging. $79 with cart and I have no regrets. Definitely worth the price of admission.
