Hidden Gem

If Raceway was closer than an hour from home, I'd play this course much more often. Have played this course about 10 times since 2012. This course is a real bargain for $38.00 walking after 1PM on a weekend. Great layout, a few water holes, a few doglegs, some tight but not menacing holes, some short and some long par 4s, but most of all - great hole designs, each hole very different from one another - really is a hidden gem in Northeast CT. Hot dog shack on 13th teebox, drinking water every fifth hole or so. Condition of the course is above average and the greens are usually on the slow side. Because there are only a few public courses in this neck of the woods, I do believe this course does get a lot of play so therefore pace of play may be slower than most courses.

First Time Playing

Cut the rough and push the pace!

Course layout rather unique in spots, but difficult to enjoy the course for two reasons: 1) the rough is too long! Very frustrating to hit a shot 5-10 feet off the fairway and then not be able to find the ball. This happened to both of our players on several occasions throughout the day. 2) pace of play - why are we waiting around all day? The foursome in front of us was slow. Ok, PUSH them along or facilitate a play-through. Ranger hung with us for a couple holes, but did nothing to move things along ahead. Maybe slow down the tee time interval? My golf time is hard to get and sacred. Don’t want to be frustrated the whole time, the sport’s hard enough as it is.
