The Tradition Golf Club At Wallingford
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.

Love to play here again and again. Be alert on the greens. They are quite fast so landing before/below pin is better.
I love playing at this course repeatedly. It’s challenging yet always leaves one with the feeling that one can do better as one becomes familiar with it. Staff are friendly and helpful.
Great round at a beautiful, well maintained course and a terrific friendly staff. I look forward to playing here again.
I find staff and management well trained taking care of the customer but also the course good job
Fun course with some interesting holes. Very fast and fun greens. A few surprises along the way. Lots of roll on the fairways. Fun time. Would play again.
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.
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.
Tradition Golf Course was pleasure to play today!! My group had a great time!

Considering today is January 4th, the course was in remarkable shape. Greens & Bunkers were “as expected” for winter golf. The island green was a blast. Fairways were in good shape.
Staff bent over backwards to ensure we enjoyed our round.
Overall our group had a great time and will be back soon!!
The Old Guys
Am 69 year old ... Driver 180-200 yds, 5iron 145 ... Low mid handicap. Tradition only had three tee boxes. Blue, White, Red. Several holes were extremely long for Senior golfers. 525 yd Par 5, Several 475-495 par 4s. Par 3 distances were fair. Would recommend Tradition adding Senior tees, especially during the mid week when us grey heads play. Other than that ... High marks. Will play again. Hot Deal is a great value.
I play there often and am also a senior. Yes there is one par 5 of 525 yds but the tee shot is down hill. As for par 4s being 475-495 yds there are none. Also the other par 5s are less than 450 yds from the white tees. In fact the distance from the white tees is less than 5500 yds which is actually a little less than most courses senior tees.
