Nice course for the average golfer

The course was in very good condition. Actually pretty wide open for a Friday afternoon. The challenge was good for someone of my level (18 GHIN handicap).

Nice Course

Played the White Course as a single. After a foursome allowed me to play through on #3, I sailed around the course. Good variety of holes. Course was well manicured. Greens were nice - good shape and relatively flat.

Green Course at Tunxis Plantation was Enjoyable

Staff was very pleasant. Fairways and green in great shape. The Green Course layout was very good - it was player friendly but had a number of challenges. Pace of play was outstanding.

Tunxis Green Course

course was in great shape. Our foursome teed off before league play. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were all in excelelnt shape. Course is forgiving on errant shots - not a lot of out-of-bounds. I will play again and I highly recommend the course.

Under 4 Hours on a Holiday Weekend

The course was in good condition, especially the greens. Just be aware, as some tees and greens are a little close. Friendly staff.

Played the Green 18

The course was challenging, and the greens appeared to be recently slit seeded, which made putting difficult. I wish they had mentioned that prior to teeing off. Also, the traps are hard packed sand. More attention should be made to rake them deeper so it resembles an actual sand trap and not hitting off your driveway. Aside from those two things I enjoyed playing this course.

Nice suburban course with 45 holes. Decent condition, moderate difficulty.

The 45 holes is nice because there was a tournament of 144 people on one of the 18's but we went right out on the other 18 (the green course) and played without delay. The greens were large and moderately undulated. The fairways were OK but there were quite a few bad spots, probably bug damage. The par threes were challenging. The course is flat and easilly walked. Some sand and water but not too difficult. Overall an enjoyable experience.

Great course. Lots of variety.

My husband and I played the White course for the first time. We loved it! Great variety with a nice mix of 3-5 par holes. There were some challenging holes with water and bunkers. All in all a great day!

Decent Value

Played 7/14/13 Green Course. Pace of play was excellent until the end which is due to a Par 5 then Par 3 finish which is understandable. Greens rolled well but were a touch slow. Tee boxes could use some mowing but otherwise decent value.

Great course even under water

The course was very wet after it had rained for days, but the staff worked hard to find a dry and playable 18 holes for us to use. Even though we had to play random holes here and there it was a nice outing and the staff was friendly and accommodating to make sure we got what we paid for.
