Great Start off The Prime Golf Season At Wintonberry Hills

The greens were in great shape. Tuff pins placements for a public golf course. Fairways were in great shape. Very gorgeous on the fairways. Great staff and welcomed you the moment you stepped foot on the property. The driving range is not on site. You have to drive 2 minutes down the road. Which is a knock. Paired up with a nice couple. It's worth the drive to play here!

Love it. A true gem

It's fantastic, but you already know that from previous reviews. I got out early in the season, so the weather wasn't great, but the course was still fantastic. It's pretty open but still very challenging. Greens are true, fast and sloped. Bunkers are extremely well placed and forced carries to make you work. There are so many intricacies in front of the greens to give you pause. The staff is super friendly. The range is also solid. I'd grab a membership if I still lived nearby. Also, they have an APP for your phone that has a great GPS and shows scores for the month. Go out and enjoy this place!

Greens tsill healing from last year' late season aeration.

Love this course but greens were pretty rough from late season aeration last year. Needs a few weeks for the greens to get trued up I'd imagine.

Thank you for the review. The greens should be fully recovered from fall aerification in the next week. We look forward to seeing you again.

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.

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.
