Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 70
Length 6120 yards
Slope 124
Rating 70.1

The Tradition Golf Club at Wallingford is one of the most affordable rounds in the area and it has received praise as one of the best golf courses in Connecticut. The par-70 layout is player friendly enough for beginners but low handicappers will also find it to be a fun round. The holes are fairly straightforward though there are some fairways that have very narrow landing areas that will test the accuracy of even the best golfers. Numerous bunkers are strategically placed along the undulating greens and water also comes into play on the occasional hole. The golf course starts out gently but becomes progressively more challenging on the back nine. The most memorable hole on the golf course, the par-3 12th, is a water hole that features an intimidating island green.

Fantastic course

Love to play here again and again. Be alert on the greens. They are quite fast so landing before/below pin is better.

Wet Conditions

It is a nice course, okay. The conditions were not good on the day we played. The fairways were extremely muddy and the sand was more mud like. I would guess when the weather dries out, this course would pretty nice.

Solid Course

Overall the course is nice. However, it is extremely wet on some holes which makes it hard to maintain fairways. Greens are in great shape for this time of year. Fun layout with some very unique holes.
