We played the Red course which is a 9 hole course. The course is in great condition and having a cart definitely was an added bonus considering it’s only a few dollars less to walk if you are a senior.

Have played this course many times and really enjoy going to Tunxis. Staff is friendly and professional and have never had a bad experience. It was our 1st time out playing this year and the Red Course is the perfect course to kick the season off with. Started off at the driving range and then practice putting range. The pace was perfect and the course was in good shape as always.

Will definitely play there a few more times this year.

Despite the tree damage from winter storms, the fairways and greens were clear. Naturally in early spring, the grass hadn't grown and the hazard lines etc were unclear. The greens were good. Last time I played this 9 was probably ten+ years ago. I'll look forward to playing there again when the course conditions are ideal.

Mornings must be ladies days. Slow pace, not playing

through, Laddies Hit it 25yards at a time, then stop for next partner's shot - no ready golf. An 1 1/2 hr round becomes a 3hr one ( 9 hole round ). Have to stop and wait to hit before every one of my shots.

Bottem line: avoid weekday morning rounds.

This course is $35 for 9 holes usually. I got a deal for about $17. For the price, I don't think there is a better deal within 25, maybe 50 miles that I am aware of. Take advantage.

We've played the course many times this year and always have great experiences. The staff is friendly and the course plays well. The only issue was it was windy and a lot of leaves on the course and at times tough to find your ball on the fairways. After golf we went to the restaurant and had nachos and beer. Again another good experience with friendly staff and good food.

We love to play there because it is not crowded and the people in the pro shop are so nice. My wife especially likes the position of the red tees which give her an excellent chance to score well.

The course itself is always in good shape and the greens are perfect.

You will not be disappointed playing this gem.
