Top ten day weather wise. Course in very good condition. They've let the rough thicken and has made the course more challenging. The greens are in real good condition, maybe a tad slower than some other courses in the area. Staff was very friendly and courteous. The front nine was busy at our tee time and we asked to go off the back and were accommodated. Pace of play was very good. A very good overall experience.

First time back under the new ownership, caught them on a day they aerated the greens, but was still happy with the overall conditions. Same layout as always with a couple challenging holes. Pin boxes and fairways were in great shape. Bunkers were all maintained. Really wouldn't complain about this visit, I will be back!

How refreshing it is to play a golf course that is challenging, meticulously groomed, staffed by very friendly people and supported by hundreds of regular golfers – local and distant. Twin Hills, a family owned and maintained course, is one of those gems.

Upon arriving our foursome was met by co-owner Dawn. With clipboard in hand she professionally checked us in, then gave us the skinny on when we teeing off, and (most importantly this hot day) what groups were in front of us. It was all twosomes so our round would be and was fast. We were playing on a Monday, which is the only day tee times are not reserved. It’s first-come, but we were told, over the phone, that if we arrived around 10 we’d have no trouble teeing off right away. We did, but a brutal heat wave really helped keep the crowds away.

Conveniently located halfway between Hartford and the University of Connecticut (UConn), Twin Hills is just off CT RT 44 in Coventry on “Bread and Milk St.” The facilities are compact. Above the large, gravel parking lot golf carts line the asphalt entrance to the clubhouse, which is small but functional. White banquet tables and blue chairs line one wall and a small kitchen/bar and check-in desk great you upon arrival. There is no pro shop to speak of but essentials can be purchased. In season rates are $35 weekdays, $40 weekends, Seniors/Juniors $30. Carts are extra, but it is a walkable course. A very small putting is laid out behind the clubhouse.

At 6365 yards from the tips to 5249 yards from the forward tees Twin Hills is on the short side but it has its share of water, doglegs and layups that make it appear lengthier. (Distances for the following holes are from the center of the tee boxes) Let’s start with hole #3, a downhill 530 yard monster. Here a large pond guards the sloping green and all but long hitters need to hit a layup. Judging that distance for your second shot is tricky because it’s mostly downhill roll. A bell in the fairway at 183 yards, from the front edge of the pond, can help in judging the correct distance. Another long hole is #5, a 502 yard dogleg left over a brook. Long hitters can clear the left side trees for a shot at the uphill green but the average player must layup. A driver and mid-iron should put you into position for a wedge to the severely sloped green. Still on the front nine, the 446 yard dogleg right requires a drive of at least 210 yards but no more than 250 for position to clear the woods on the right and stop before the fairway ends. Somewhere between those distances is a good location for your second shot to the large, flat green.

On the back nine, the dogleg left #10 presents a problem in the form of a large tree 175 yards out smack in the middle of the fairway. Although trees are “really 90% air” you’re better off hitting a worm burner under/around the tree trunk, driving it left of the tree, or taking your chances on finding “air” through the branches and leaves. Once past the tree it’s a wedge to an elevated green. More decisions persist on #11, a short 350 yard dogleg left. If you can hit a draw great, but most of us humans cannot. The fairway runs out around 250 yards and a pond and tree protects the left side of the fairway so something other than driver off the tee is a good choice. And the problems continue. Number 14 requires a 185 yard tee shot to clear a brook, then #17 needs a 220 yard tee shot to clear the stone wall and trees on the right side of this dogleg right.

For all your decisions, troubles and strokes you are finally rewarded with a short par 4 finishing hole. At 300 yards from the tips (280 white), it’s drivable for some but reachable with a driver and wedge for most mortals.

Most of the above information is on the courses very thorough scorecard (and website) as are the locations of ice-cold water, porta-potties, and shelters. Enjoy!
