My group kept getting bothered by the ranger. 4 sum in my group on busy Saturday group behind had 3 people with 3 carts. We played 18 holes in 4hr 15 minuets and paid $66.50. Thanks for annoying us after we paid $66.50 each on our day off.

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)

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.

Considering the time of year the course was in good shape. Lots of debris on the fairways. Additional yardage markers would help especially 150 post markers. Overall experience was good, definitely would recommend. Staff was very friendly.

Played 18 on the white course. Play was backed up from the start. Played as a twosome so I expected to be waiting but the group in front of us made no attempt to speed play. Conditions were bad. The fairways were long and there was little to discern the length of the rough and the fairways. Likewise the grass on the T boxes was very long which made it difficult to judge t height. The greens and bunkers were in good condition. Overall not worth the $66 paid to play there.

I love playing Tunxis..White or Green Course...But come on Management/Superintendent the rough was like it hadn't been cut this year. Had difficulty finding balls that had ventured into the rough. Not sure if it was the weather during the week which halted maintenance but I wasn't pleased. Also, the greens were unbelievably slow. Played the White Course, shot 87 , 10.5 Index...so take it from there. US Kids Tour was playing Green course which was impressive. Let's get the course maintained better, please. Bill V

Facility has 45 holes, plenty to chose from, played the white course which is more wide open than the green course. The course features a large pond that has 4 greens connecting within the water feature. Greens could have been cut better to increase speed, bunkers were so so, in need of more sand. Even wider open then green course, still required you to place ball on certain sides of fairway for better approach shots. Very friendly and helpful staff, grill room menu could have been better for such a large facility.

Course in great shape with nice challenging holes. Some tricky greens but overall in good shape. My only complaint was there was afoursome ahead of us that insisted on playing the blue tees and had no business doing it. Ranger said he would say something to them, with three open holes in front of them. We ended jumping a hole ahead of them and then had no delay. Staff extremely helpful, I played through golf now site, you get greens fee, cart, and a small bucket of balls with your greens fees. Will,come back again, but try to avoid holiday weekends.

Tunxis is a great course. Plenty of options between white and green courses for 18 holes and the red course for 9. Pace of play was great for a Sunday, less than 4 hours for the round.
