Connecticut offers a bevy of public golf courses that could be described as majestic and pristine. But for this week, we’re choosing three golf courses, suggested by the CT Office of Tourism, that consistently produce rave reviews from amateur golfers and professional critics alike.
Lake of Isles Golf Course
The ultimate golf experience providing breathtaking views on every hole. Acclaimed designer Rees Jones sculpted 36 unique holes from the natural topography of this North Stonington property.
The Clubhouse features the award-winning Matches Tavern, which offers delectable American cuisine.
Fox Hopyard Golf Club
This 18-hole, par 71 golf course in East Haddam, designed by Roger Rulewich, winds through 530 acres of rolling hills, dense forest, open pastures, running brooks, ponds, wetlands, rock outcroppings and stone walls.
Online tee times can be made 7 days in advance when. Golf and Dinner Packages are available.
Wintonbury Hills Golf Course
Located in Bloomfield, Connecticut, just 15 minutes from Hartford, Wintonbury Hills is a beautifully conditioned course in a peaceful and relaxing setting. The course represents Pete Dye’s first championship design in New England. The 6,711-yard, par-70 layout has a combination of open links-style and traditional tree-lined holes to provide golfers a challenging and enjoyable round of golf.
From the moment you arrive, the friendly and professional staff will provide a private club experience to annual passholders and guests alike, at a surprisingly affordable price for a Pete Dye masterpiece.
