CT NATIONAL

Course is in fine shape, especially the greens. I was surprised the fairways were not dried out. The rough is down except around greens - where it should be. A tough course overall.

Great 18 @ CTN

15 HC. Live 20 mins away and need to come here more especially earlier in the year.

The Good -
I was able to see the parallels in conditions in early June vs. Late September and they are impressively similar. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were perfect. Cart girl on a Thursday is a plus. Great putting greens/driving range. Updated carts.

The Bad(?) -
Greens are very glassy, lots of elevation changes and challenging pin placements. OK with me but with any beginner/novice you will struggle mightily around the green. Normal wear and tear off of the fairways and in certain places but no real complaints.

No ugly. Great time at CTN. Will be back !

Superfast Greens!

Great turf condition! Well maintained. Defense of the course is the fast, undulating greens! Plenty of opportunities to three putt after a GIR!

Solid course

The course was in very good shape for the terrible and rough year that we had weather wise in Connecticut. The greens were in excellent shape and some of the tee boxes were a little bit beat up, but you can see that they had just refilled them and reseeded them so they're definitely making an effort and those should be back within a few weeks. Found a great deal on golfnow.com. Pace of play was surprisingly slow for a Friday afternoon. 5 hours plus, didn't see one ranger and we finished in the dark and there was still 4 groups behind us who definitely didn't finish. I like this course because the fairways are fairly wide and then there's a little bit of room in the rough usually before you get in too much trouble so you can usually find your tee shots, and there is a good amount of bunkering around the green, and some of the greens are a little bit tough but none are unfair. It is a solid course I try to play there every year when I get a chance.

Great Course

2nd time playing Connecticut National. 7:30 tee time from golfnow for $37 cart included. Pace of play was excellent 3:30 for 18. Course layout is a combination of links style & tree lined holes. Course is good condition, with fairways, greens , and rough all very good. Greens are very challenging, featuring a lot of undulation and VERY fast from above the hole. Approach shot placement and chipping/putting are keys for a good score here.

A couple of items to note - The course did not open until 7am. The driving range mats (mats only today) are in terrible condition and need to be replaced. Course did not have drinks / snacks for sale today, bring your own.

First Time Playing

Tee’d off at 3:20 and didn’t only could play 15 holes.

Slowest play ever. 2 foursomes walking in front of us the entire round. Pace of play terrible. Never saw the cart girl. Called club house and they said she was done for the day. Was highly looking forward to playing this course but now I won’t be back. Only was able to play 15 holes, while having a 3:20PM tee time. Unacceptable.

Great condition

Let me start off by saying that this course is always in good condition. However, with the drought and the overall conditions of every other course in the area, Connecticut National went above and beyond this time. The greens are perfect. Lightning fast like most of the time I play there. The fairways are in great condition. I didn’t see any super noticeable dead spots or dry spots. The grounds crew here deserve a huge thumbs up for a job well done

Wonderful day

It helped that the weather was perfect and I was paired with a bunch of fun golfers. The condition of the course was very good and the greens were outstanding. This is a really nice course and a great value.
