Fun, Manageable Course

I've played here many times over the years and always look forward to it. I'd like to see them work on improving fairway conditions, especially in front of the greens and high-traffic areas. They also need to work on firming up the fairway 20-150 yards before the green. Lots of soft, wet areas that cause balls to plug or not roll even though we had a dry summer. Also makes approach shots tough when being in the fairway should be rewarded.

Practice time

Came out to practice for up coming golf tournament with the wife. She haven't touch a golf club for almost right years.. she didn't do that bad for someone who haven't played for awhile. I had to play best ball cause I didn't wanna slow play. But she hitbjim good, her striking was good but not great.. the golf staff was really friendly, they told us to to worry about anything. The fairways and green was really good .My wife and I had a great time. The course was a lite long for her, that's why we played best ball. I definitely would recommend this course to all my friends.

Greens Way Too Slow

First time playing Portland in many years, though the trees have grown taller layout has not changed from what I remember.. Pace of play on Monday afternoon was good, we played in 3:30 with carts.The condition of the course was disappointing - the course was quite wet (after raining most of the prior day) resulting in plugged lies & mud on the ball in many fairways. This was made worse by the grounds crew watering the 15th fairway, needlessly resulting in a large casual water area in landing zone. The biggest issue was the speed of the greens, by far the slowest I've played this year. The lack of speed took most of the break out of puts, additionally the long grass accentuated grain making it difficult for a putt to hold its line on several putts. Scores were low but I won't be back to Portland any time soon.

Elusive by Design

Though not an iconic track, Portland does so many things well—often extraordinarily so—that Connecticut golfers should not overlook it. The layout has a subtle linkslike underpinning because the terrain is profusely rolling and imaginatively contoured, with an assist from nature. I played the front side today with my son, who was so impressed that he thinks this should be part of the Connecticut PGA Junior Golf Association rota. A nearly ideal short course, Portland forces you to work on every shot. Good scores are earned here—earned by smarts and high skill.

This layout is loosely in the mold of a course like the Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, except for the generally larger greens here (the Country Club’s average only 6,000 sq. ft.) and somewhat steeper terrain. And the first hole here is virtually a twin of the CC's fourth. One key, though, is that both are short courses in which hitting the sloping, elusive greens is of great importance. For around them the ground forms are uneven and uncooperative, all rolling dips and cants and swales and large falloffs. At Portland these definitely grab my attention. Success depends on a sound short game; coping with the pitching and chipping burdens may be even more important than putting.

Architect Geoffrey Cornish, who designed more New England courses than anyone, used a central theme fully at Portland, a sound point of reference that he relied on consistently. Mr. Cornish believed strongly that all golf courses should enlist the style of ground forms found in Scottish linksland. Far less important to him that architects built courses which brought to mind the ‘look’ of a links—how could they, after all, on an inland layout? One could surmise, readily, that Cornish learned from the works of early 20th Century masters like Willie Park and W. H. Fowler, whose “fine American course Eastward Ho! on Cape Cod combines the rolling terrain and ocean setting of a links with the tree-lined fairways and raised greens of the heaths.” (“The Golf Course,” Cornish and Whitten, 1988). Cornish also asserted that Park’s innovative greens (larger, more undulating, of gentler shapes) and “bold, manmade hazards” were revolutionary in light of what had been typical of non-links designs. These are all qualities, save for the ocean setting, we see at Portland—and all are done well.

Portland's front-nine holds other strengths. Both of its par-3’s are mid-length and uphill; especially steep is the 185-yard fourth, which plays long and stings those who drift left. And those who fail to recover passably from this steep drop-off will see their scores mount. Each hole has a frontal deep bunker, meaning you'll likely need to carry your shots onto both greens.

Then there are the short-par 4’s, which pose deeper problems than what most architects design: you’ll have your hands full on five, six, and nine. None of these takes kindly to errant shots.

Five is my favorite hole here. Beneath the high tee box stretches a theatrically rolling, downhill fairway–the trees hugging it on both sides and, all the way down in front of the plateau green, a deep swale to catch shots that fall short of it. The drive challenges you visually, as this offset fairway soon drops out of sight. In the left-side landing zone, a bunker hides, often catching pulls and hooks (yet it may be charitable, saving balls from the woods). The hole, in fact, aims you a bit left as the fairway is offset in that direction—hit a fade off the tee, if it's in your bag. Following the drive's flight downhill can be nerve racking, your eyes drawn to the threatening trees crowding the fairway. Of lower risk will be your wedge/short iron into the green. This, too, must be confidently struck to fly the intervening swale and huge, frontal bunker. The final task is two-putting a sweeping, undulating surface. As interesting as 295 yards gets, Portland's fifth is a jewel.

Portland seems quite playable for those with handicaps ranging from scratch to 25. Despite the potency of this distinctive layout, it's quite bearable thanks to its balanced shot values. That's the other beauty of playing this attractive course.

Toughest Holes
Not merely hard, the longish 3 and 7 are also classic four-pars possessing grace and atmosphere. A premium is placed at three on driving to the fairway's ideal, flat landing spot (atop the upslope). Short drives hit rightward will be blocked by the huge trees of this dogleg-right. Your approach will be hit downward to an inviting target, but only in front: the green is protected by a huge flanking bunker and woods behind. Seven, an unusual and visually intimidating hole, is also adventurous and strategic from tee-to-green. Your drive must avoid the tall, mature trees squarely in this fairway’s center—the better line is leftward. A strong tee shot buys a short-iron approach, but it must surmount a massive upsweep into the green (with big, embedded bunkers left and right). At seven, two first-rate shots are a must for a GIR.

Quick Facts & Observations:
--Superb conditioning, everywhere: Sets a high standard for Connecticut public courses.
--Staff here GETS the importance of customer service. At check-in, Mrs. Kelley was personable, friendly, and helpful.
--More than competent handling of physical distancing et al.

Understated Excellence

INWARD NINE REVIEW (see outward from 10/29)
I played this back nine on a very cool but windless afternoon in the last hour or so before dusk, and walked back to my car in near darkness. My experience was a fine one here at Portland Golf Course.

Scotland is once again the country of inspiration for Cornish and Robinson at Portland GC—a choice in building golf courses, as Cornish wrote in “The Golf Course” (1988), that comprises part of his philosophy. The ground movement of this layout somewhat reminds me, in fact, of a similarly rolling, hilly seaside links located near St. Andrews, called Lundin, which I played last summer. Lundin is quite a bit more open, as it winds through the dunes, but it does have a more pronouncedly hilly section that moves up through woodlands for a few holes. Both courses, Lundin and Portland, are ceaselessly amusing—but also challenging—by their clever variety and by an excellent mix of golfing perks. These include some dramatic elevation changes and angular movement throughout, a few blind shots, artfully positioned greens, and no shortage of well-built and varied bunkers, especially around the putting surfaces.

FAVORITE HOLES: A pair of inventive and strategic holes, both moving down and then up, were the most engrossing to play on this inward half. TWELVE: A 250 to 270 yard tee shot (from the blues) will be required to reach the optimal and flat part of the landing zone for an attacking second shot into the green. Big hitters may go for this green in two, but they’ll need to hit a long, pronounced fade into the green, which departs from a direct line of sight and angle from the far-away landing zone. Most golfers, who’ll play this as a three-shotter, must contend with a well-placed tree, intrusively blocking the fairway’s left side, on their second shots. The ideal play is to draw the ball around the tree, positioning the ball for an approach that opens up the green (on the fairway’s left side). The architects have clearly imagined a hole for all levels of players at twelve. The green is also carefully angled at 45 degrees from the fairway, placing further demands on your iron game. Artful design. THIRTEEN: A back-to-back hole that moves downhill on the tee-shot, then back uphill. The landing zone, which sits at a slight angle from the tee on this left-to-right dogleg, will demand a perfectly-hit fade from the tee box. Hitting from the blue tee, I had to be careful not to hit through the fairway’s bend, for at about 250 yards on that direct line, a pond lies in wait for the unwary—it is blind from the tee. Given that you’ve reached the fairway’s bend, the second will be a straight shot directly up the hill to a deep, contoured green sided by a bunker to the left and backed by another.

TOUGH 4-PAR’s: Beside the thirteenth, three more tough par-4’s can put dents in your scorecard. FIFTEEN: This straightaway driving hole of 371 yards has a broad enough fairway, but a tricky, angular green, conspiring with its pair of large frontal/right bunkers, will make your second shot a toughie. The oval green’s centerline is again angled at 45 degrees from the line of approach. EIGHTEEN: Falling just shy of 400 yards, 18 will play even longer than that for most golfers because they won’t carry, quite likely, the pair of ‘Spectacle’ bunkers (much resembling the famous pair at Carnoustie) that dominate the landing zone. In my case, a 242-yard carry is required to fly these massive traps, set a mere 12 yards apart. Each is about 20 yards long by 12 yards wide. And they angle upward a bit to catch those shots that fall just shy of long enough. Moreover, it is extremely difficult to drive to the side of these spectacle bunkers and land safely. Your approach shot at 18 must cross a large swale on its way to the green, well-bunkered and perched a bit above the last stretch of fairway. ELEVEN: An architectural connoisseur’s hole. Straightaway and short but heavily tree-lined, this uphill hole features a drastically tightening fairway (it becomes pencil-thin) into the green. A perfectly placed drive on the fairway’s right-hand side will open up the narrow green sited on the hilltop. We must guard against going left on this hole from tee to green, as deep drop-offs shall make us pay dearly. The hole is tantalizing but devilish. Fortunately, the final 4-par on this backside is much tamer and shorter at 325 yards and will play as a drive-and-pitch affair for most. It does dogleg, and at its bend is a massive bunker that threatens those who want to short-cut the drive. The green itself is bunker-less but beautifully contoured and slightly raised to reject less-than-excellent approaches, which should come in, ideally, from the fairway’s right, not left, side.

SIXTEEN, THE ‘OTHER’ PAR-FIVE: Hardly a clinker, this gently arcing hole may be a two-shooter, and far more so at 494 yards, though the driving zone is dangerous with a deep left-side falloff. Its fairway features rolling terrain with a pronounced knob in the left-side landing zone, and a small dale thereafter, from which many will hit the second. The well-bunkered green opens in front, but it’s a mere 12 yards in width.

SOLID THREE-PARS: Cornish/Robinson did not set out to build monsters here, so much as conventionally good, mid-range holes that will challenge the precision of one’s mid-iron (or, contemporarily, hybrid) game. SEVENTEEN: The penultimate hole lacks pizzazz, but it does have three yawning and deep bunkers, all greenside, that will punish errant shots coming in from 190 yards. FOURTEEN: Ten yards longer, this hole opens up in front, but its left-side bunker begs for a draw into this green, which is set of a 15-20 degree angle from the tee boxes. You are given a bit of room to roll a short-flying approach onto the carpet, but you’ll need help from a proper bounce. Semi-blind from the tee, the elegant green complex—and green itself—are among the most beautiful at Portland.

BEMOANING BLIND SHOTS: Yes, reviewers have whined about blind shots at Portland, as there are a few here. The great Tommy Armour is famously quoted on the subject as such: “There is no such thing as a blind shot to a man with a memory.” Armour seems to suggest that we simply ‘Cowboy up.’ I agree.

CONDITIONING: First-rate in nearly every respect. The greens are still essentially perfect in late November, which seems a genuine feat. Some of the rough areas were a bit patchy, but again: it is nearly winter. To expound just a bit, I’m sure the reason behind the standards set here have to do with what one of the owners, Mrs. Laurie Kelley, told me today. To paraphrase, their mission statement is to provide ‘country club’ conditioning to a course that receives much heavier play, throughout the year, than a typical private golf club. By the dint of both superior effort and application, it seems to me that they’ve more than achieved it (no public course I’ve played in the state tops Portland GC).

IN SUM: The back nine and front nine at Portland are balanced and basically equivalent in quality. I can’t pick a better short course (6,184, blues) to play in Connecticut if your objective is a serious golf match that will also be fully entertaining. Given that the course’s tee sheet was almost totally full throughout the next (cool, late-November) day after I played here, I would say a strong number of other golfers agree with me.

Author’s Note: I received no compensation for writing this review from either this website (GA) or the golf course. The incentive refers to entry into a sweepstakes.

Portland Trail Blazer

FRONT NINE REVIEW
Simply put, Portland offers up a first-rate parkland layout. Virtually every desirable element shows up on the outward nine: there are plenty of bunkers; winding fairways and clever doglegs; varied routing emphasizing tough green complexes; a tumbling landscape comprised of large hills. It is, perhaps, the latter that supplies the most interest to the experience of playing here.

No water hazards appear on the front—they aren’t necessary, anyway. Since shotmaking is the prime weapon for scoring on these splendidly shaped holes, Portland dishes out more than enough challenge for the vast majority of golfers. Consider, too, that the mature trees, intrusive greenside traps, and strongly contoured putting surfaces are all ‘hazardous’ enough.

Portland has improved markedly since the last time I played here (some years ago) in its conditioning. The average tees, fairways and rough that were once characteristic have been upgraded dramatically with meticulous attention to detail. Astonishingly so for a daily-fee public course, Portland is somewhat reminiscent of TPC River Highlands, if not quite so exceptional. It boasts smooth and unblemished fairways and greens, level and nearly immaculate tee boxes, consistent rough, and greenside fringes so manicured and consistent they almost look artificial. The best conditions I’ve encountered in the past year were at an upscale Florida private club—The Legacy in southeastern Florida—and Blackledge (Anderson’s Glen) in Hebron. Portland’s conditioning does not take a backseat to either.

COMMENTS:
--DEMANDING START. Holes one through four are all about rigor. A 405-yard par-4 opener is played to a tight fairway, which drops down dramatically to a gracefully sloping green, making for a tough two-shotter. This green does allow run-up shots from the extreme left-side of its wide expanse: a large bunker guards the center of this forcefully contoured putting surface. We reverse course at the upward-moving, par-5 second, a long uphill hole that should appeal to the adventurous. This 505-yard bruiser features a serpentine fairway bisected in the landing zone by a lone, tall tree—around which some shots may have to be curved. Another shot-maker’s special occurs on the approach (for big hitters) because a trio of bunkers protects the green. For most, however, this hole is a three-shotter, but your wedge will have to be precisely struck to get close on this green’s curving surface.

The third hole demands a tee shot down the left side for the best angle into this green, as the fairway doglegs to the left and then crosses a swale. This is a hard hole to classify, but it may well be the best one on the entire course. The fourth—no picnic either—is a rock solid par-three, moving 183 yards steeply uphill to a green well-protected by a right-sided bunker, with a tall lip that will punish miscues aimed for the wider back portion of the putting surface.

--BIRDIE OPPORTUNITIES: Holes five and six, both shorter par-3’s, can be approached on your second shots with wedges or short irons. Positioning yourself to hit these shots, however, takes some care. Because approach shots typically must fly into well-protected, cleverly contoured greens in both cases, these are still not routine par holes, as small errors are often punished.

--FINISH: Another tough driving hole wreaks some havoc at seven, having, as it does, a prominent fairway-splitting obstacle, this time in the form of double trees (sounds like a hotel chain). The approach shot—to a green perched on a hill—is no less rigorous. Tee-to-green, this hole presents the front’s most difficult test. Eight is a bit less stringent, but the 150-yard uphill par-3 can be brutal if missed: it is sided on its right flank with a very deep clover-leaf bunker measuring 32-yards long. Good drives at the ninth may often set up a wedge/one-putt combination. The drive at nine must be well aimed and struck to hit a tight (30-yard-wide) fairway and evade the prominent right-side hazards, which may thwart your best-laid plans.

GENERAL: Though some of these holes play long because they run uphill, none of them are enormous. The third and seventh are severe tests, to be sure, as longer and quite rigorous par-fours. Both require patience and are generally intolerant to over-aggressive play. The other factor abets lower scoring is accurate approach shots that wind up at close quarters to the pins; they are crucial at Portland. Hitting the greens frequently will doubtless help your cause, but leave yourself with too many long putts and you’ll pay a price. Likewise, relying too heavily upon your up-and-down game around these greens may yield small dividends. The course is a Geoffrey Cornish and William Robinson product, circa 1974, and I would classify it as one of the duo’s best creations that fall under the category of “shortish,” for lack of a better term. Its length, though, should be seen as a benefit: it is accessible to a wide range of players. On the day I played here last week, I was fortunate to have met the two owners, Laurie and John, both of whom were exceptionally friendly and accommodating in every respect.

BEST HOLE: The first is among the best opening holes in Connecticut. From the hilltop, where most drives land on the fairway, the green below appears tantalizing, but miss the dance floor even slightly on the approach and you’ll be fighting tough greenside contours, as well as a heavily sloping putting surface, to get up and down.

IN SUM: Dollar for dollar, this is among the best golfing values I have found this year. It is high quality golf; it is exciting; its environs are beautiful.

Having played this ever-elusive game in eight states—including Pennsylvania, Hawaii, and Florida—over that span, I would suggest this qualifies as high praise, indeed. Blaze a trail to Portland and play it.
