Good course at bargain prices

Airways Golf, located northwest of Bradley Airport off Route 20, is a small, family owned course. It’s probably the least expensive 18 hole, standard size golf course in CT. Their regular specials are: weekdays $23 am, $20 pm. Weekends are $30 am and $25 pm respectively. These rates include a cart. No wonder players travel 40 or more miles to play here regularly. Other reasons are their friendly staff, moderate difficulty, easy to walk and flexible tee times. They are also open year round, weather permitting. Airways is a short course at 5914 yards from the blues, 5528 white, 5175 gold and 5038 red. About 20 leagues play here regularly, small tournaments find the costs within budget, seniors and women love the place and you can even play frequently as a single on certain days and times. Their flexibility in getting you on the course is what brings many players back time and again. And a ranger regularly monitors play, particularly on busy days. As for the course, it is generally flat ex-farmland with tree-lined fairways, a medium-sized brook effecting five holes and several small ponds. Holes 1 and 2 are short, straight par 4’s. Then you play the dogleg right par 4, 361 yd third locally known as the “Hole from H....” About a 160 tee shot from the blue and white tees gets you to the top of the dogleg on a small hill. Your side-hill approach shot is to a sloped back-to-front mounded green. Surrounding the entire, narrow fairway are deep woods on the left and tall trees on the right. Par on this hole should be 5 due to the difficulty of keeping the ball in the sloping fairway or on the small green. The 6th hole is short at 327 yds but a tall tree on the right blocks a straight drive to the green and a brook on the left gobbles up many drives that roll left and long. A fade is the perfect shot off this tee. The rest of the course is pretty average with a mix of short par 3, 4 and 5’s. At 283 yds, the flat 9th hole is drivable for long hitters. Finally, the three finishing holes can be difficult. A long tee shot is needed to clear a brook on the 481 yd par 5 sixteenth. Your approach shot is over a pond to a small, mounded and heavily slopped green. A par 3 is available as an option on this hole and is frequently used during the spring thaw when the 16th fairway floods. The par 4 seventeenth is a dogleg left that requires a 200 yard tee shot (from the blue or whites) to clear the dogleg. The 318 yd par 4 eighteenth is a slight right dogleg that is drivable to long hitters with a fade. Once off the course you’ll find a small, no frills clubhouse with a friendly feeling about it. There is also a small outside patio and gazebo overlooking the 9th green. One of the big knocks about Airways is the condition of the course. Drainage is a big problem on some holes and fairway grass is thin on holes 3, 4, 5, 14, & 16, and some tee boxes. I think there are too many tall trees surrounding those fairways. They block out the sun thus no grass grows nearby. Quite a bit of tree thinning is needed there. Each year I’ve seen improvements so I know the owners are putting some bucks back into the course. It still think it needs added $$$$ though to make it more playable. I’d gladly pay an extra $5 bucks per round if that money was put into course conditioning. I really like this course and play here often, however I’d like to see those 5 holes, mentioned above, in better shape. I recommend Airways to golfers on a tight golf budget, for a quick practice round or for a chance at a lower than normal scoring round. Just don’t expect a pristine conditions throughout….for now anyway.
