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.

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.
