Great Layout & in Super Condtion

Played the White Course. In great shape and I love the layoff. The Tunxis staff is by far the best I have dealt with in Connecticut.

Tunxis is Tunxis

Steady and consistent over the years, greens are rolling well, fairways trimmed up., traps in decent shape. You get what you always got, what you expect. Tunxis has made a few improvements and really wants you to come back. And I will!

Good facility

Nice facility, with two 18's and a 9, easy to get tee times. Very easy course to walk and in good shape. Greens are a bit on the slow side for my liking but in good shape.

Course is always in good condition

I realize it is still early on for golf season in CT. Course was in good shape for as early as it is, greens ran true. The only problem we had was that there was a group of 13-17 people in front of us walking. The 4-some in front of us barely kept pace with the threesome in front of them, who did not keep pace with the foursome in front of them. Additionally, while the 3 of us are not great golfers, the folks in front of us were terrible, adding to the delays. We tee'd off at 10:30am and did not putt out on 18 until 3:10 pm. Perhaps the Starter could have sent our group and the 4some behind us out on the back nine first.

Best deal on GolfNow

Unbeatable deals during the week. Staff are always great, and course defies the weather conditions by being soft but not saturated. Wish I could play here every day.

Tunxis is a solid track

got there early, first time of the day. staff very friendly. played as a single, and tried to stay out of the maintenance guys way. course is flat, with almost no fairway bunkers, but the greens are almost all raised complexes and there is a fair amount of water hazards. Played from the tips and it is challenging. Greens were perfect, but fairways a little thin in spots. would definitely play again.

Second time here at the White course this year. Conditions are fantastic, yes a few holes are driver wedge, but that being said it's not easy. I had a great time and will be back. If you haven't played it, you should

Great Day

Course was in excellent condition. We moved along at a quick pace. A gentlemen rode up to our foursome and gave us bottles of water. The bar/restaurant was perfect for post golf drinks and burgers. We will all be back!

Great price tough rough fuzzy greens

Pace of play was super quick as no one was there despite being a perfect day. We played in 3 hours as a twosome. Never saw this course so empty especially seeing that the weather was perfect like playing a private club. Rough was heavy and the greens were fuzzy (poa)

Boring

I've never understood why people enjoy playing here. Every hole is driver/wedge. There's little in the way of trouble, even if you're in the rough. Conditions are always average, while prices are too high. Go to Stanley or Rockledge if you're looking for something close, Simsbury Farms or Timberlin if you're willing to drive a little farther.
