Good value,

This was first experience playing the Green Course at Tunxis Plantation Country Club. I was pleasantly greeted at the Pro Shop and provided some basic information regarding the golf course. When I arrived at the starters station, the starter on duty was very personable and accommodating - a good exoerience to start off your round. I atrived a few minutes priort my 12 noon tee time, but was able to tee off immediately. The course was in good shape overall, but lacked sone direcrional signage to navigate from hole to hole. We has a morning rain, and the greens wererelatively slow. I enjoyed the wooded landscape, and the pace of play was good for weekend play. I would play here again.

Playing the Green Course. Great place to hit my driver, I find that it's not a hard course. Great cart path throughout the plantation. Relaxed and enjoyable place to play.

Mark of Excellence

Great touch of delivering cold water to golfers during different holes to insure they were hydrated on a very hot & humid day. Extra special!

Love the course layout and condition - very well maintained.

Tunxis a must play

Tunix has been one of favorite places to play for the past ten years. The course is always in great shape. The greens role true, the fairways are receptive off the tee, and it is just challenging enough to make that 79
feel like a 75.

Beautiful well kept course

The course was very doable and women friendly. The holes were challenging and fun to play. No outrageous yard ages but a feel good course all around. We all enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Good But Could Be Better

Tunxis is a good option for the mid-handicapper (e.g. 15). It might be a little too easy for the single digit handicapper even form the back tees.
Pros:
-Course is in good condition and pace of play was excellent.
Cons:
-It would be nice if they had "yardage to water hazard" signs on some of the holes where water is reachable from the tee. Also, all flags are the same color (instead of the traditional blue/white/red), making it difficult to know where the pin is located on the green.

Course was good but a little pricy. So my comment was too short, then what did you want me to say? A review of every hole? My comment stands...

Good play, fair price

The first hole was a nice straight par 4, no divots on the green at all. Every green was well kept, nicely groomed and filled in. The fairways were a little beat up but what can you expect after a long summer? I would definitely play again.
