Golf Advisor: Top Courses in New England
Pace of Play was Ridiculous
I’ve played Tunxis many times in the past and yesterdays round was so bad for pace of play I won’t be returning anytime soon. Every single hole on the Front White Course no lie we had 3 groups waiting on the tee. It was so bad even though my son and I paid for 18 holes we had to walk off the course. No excuse for play being this bad
Open and easy navigation
Holes are generally nice and long but the course wide open allowing you to spray and recover if needed. Layout is done well where you literally come off the green and go right to the next tee box for th most part. Also, if you’re in a cart, there’s freedom to roam, which really helps. Tee boxes and greens are kept in good shape by the staff.
Best Kept Hartford Area Course
Even with the hot, dry weather, the White Course at Tunxis was in perfect condition. A real joy to play. I have never had an issue with anything at this facility , which is why I always go back there regularly to play.
Going Downhill fast
This is a super nice course that is going Downhill. Played on a 90 degree day and of course there was no water available which is understanding but there was no cart person and the vending machines were totally empty. Called the ProShop number and it would not go through.
Course is in good shape but they are getting top dollar for every round and have absolutely no amenities available on the course.
Quick 18. 3 hours walking! Fairways were decent but a lot of ant hills.
Worst time I’ve ever had on a golf course
The round in total took 5 hours to finish the 2 groups in front of us we’re some of the slowest players on earth no rangers out on the course. Our cart ran out of gas on the 13th hole and they told us “oh yeah thats the 10th cart today to run out of gas”. Course has some good holes but most are very narrow fairways with greens smaller than a trash can lid like super tiny greens would recommend going somewhere else to play not worth it.
First round in Northeast
Since all the crap began. Course as I remember it, pretty good shape, greens smooth and consistent. Tunxis adapting as well as anywhere. Played in under 2 hours, first off in a cart.
No food, water, restrooms beside porta potty’s, plan accordingly
Could do no better under tyhe circumstances
Just wanted to pass along my appreciation to the starter at the course, very friendly and easily got you through the paying and send off process. fast round (4:15) and good turf conditions
Tight, medium-speed greens, fairways were in great shape, lots of clover in the rough could make it tough to find your ball sometimes. I’ll definitely be playing again. Restaurant and snack bar were closed.
Don’t waste your time
Hadn’t been here in 10+ years. They use an answering service instead of having on site staff field calls. Hire a local kid to run your calls. This Created a cluster.
Called six days in a row until someone finally answered. They booked us for a course they were doing leagues on so the league guys yelled at us as if we were trying to jump on or cut them. tiny little greens made for trolls. We played white course. Target golf. I like courses where you can use driver. Should be charging 20 bucks to walk. Embarrassing. It seems like they don’t want customers. Hopefully they sell to someone who cares. My advice, make the drive over to west Hartford to play Rockledge and skip this place. Local ct guy who won’t return.

Too Much Clover
We played in a little over 4 1/2 hours at mid day on a Sunday. Pace was a little slow but much of this was due to constantly looking for balls in the rough just a few yards off the fairways due to the clover hiding the balls. The greens were small and didn't hold very well as our group played many shots from over the green regardless of where shots landed on the putting surface. A bit disappointing for the money. We all kind of decided it would be a while if ever we would return to play again.
