A nice round but slow
The course is in good conditions considering the lack of recent rain and being very hot the last few days. Unfortunately there were no rangers to keep things moving and we backed up with four groups on one par five (green, fairway and two on the tee) The rough is a little long, but I presume they are not cutting because of the heat and lack of rain
Pace of Play
As has been the case seemingly all summer, we had to wait on every single tee box. A 9 that could be played in 90 minutes instead took 2 hr 40 minutes.
Not to mention, I had booked a 3:10 tee time only to be forced to tee off at 3:20.
Seems to be happening at every course, so I won’t fault Tunxis, just keep it in mind.
Nice walk on a Thursday morning.
Nice walk on a Thursday morning. I have played this course many times and during this social distancing times it couldn’t have been more perfect. I prepaid the greens fees and there was no contact with anybody at the course except the starter who sent us right out. Course rules were walking only, it was a beautiful morning and fairways are fairly generous, greens were in very good shape...more than worth the $24 special.
A long car ride from Cape Cod to play 9 holes
My wife and I played the Red course with another couple from Massachusetts. The clubhouse is not open. Payment is made via credit card at the starter shack. It is extremely well organized keeping in mind it was over 70 degrees for the first time this spring.
There are only white tee markers. No red markers at all.
The course overall was in fantastic condition. The green speed was medium but very consistent on all 9 holes.
I wish the Governor of Massachusetts would go there to see how a golf course can be safely managed in spite of the coronavirus challenges.
I have played this course in the past and love it more, the more I go. Not only is the course very well maintained, the staff is very friendly. The way they treat people will keep me coming back.
Never played the Red Course before.. course was in good shape & fun to play.
Not my first time playing here and it certainly won’t be the last. I love this place! I’m new to the game as of this year, have played as many different courses as I can, and find this place to be top notch. Very well maintained and the people make it better
I like this place, flat well maintained , the staff is very nice. This is a course that is a great value and I will definitely play here again
Fairways in very poor condition. Lots of bare spots along with clover and weeds.I would guess that due to course restricted to nine hole play upkeep is minimal
Greens were decent.
Won,t return to play this course.
