A recreational destination since Devereax Emmet and Alfred M. Tull sculpted it into the East Hartford countryside in 1930, Long Hill Country Club’s 18-hole course unfurls 6,014 yards of manicured fairways and greens. Mature trees form a path along the par 70, impeding golf balls that stray to the rough in a short-sighted search for a soft landing. The course features three tee options to appeal to golfers of all abilities.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 70 course
  • Length of 6,014 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 68.1 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 115 from the farthest tees
  • Three tee options

Called America's Best New Public Course Under $75 in 2006 by Golf Digest, King Carter’s course of scenic fairways and championship tees challenges ball-smackers of every strength. Up to two golfers can club through King Carter’s par 71 greenery (up to $49 value each), which features up to 6,818 yards of majestic vineyard views. King Carter’s Old World–inspired course design invites golfers with its natural woods, glistening streams, dramatic contours, and sand traps hosting life-size dioramas of The Iliad. Game-day golfers will also receive two small buckets of range balls (a $3 value each) to practice at King Carter’s 20 station tees and short-game area, plus a cart for cruising the fairways. After swinging their way across the well-tended turf, metal-rod-wielders can mend fatigued physiques with a meal fit for a summer camper: chips, a bottle of soda, and a choice of a hot dog, hamburger, or cheeseburger (an $8 value).

A Hartford community staple since it was sculpted around the 1930s, Goodwin Park Golf Course peppers the countryside with 27 holes of various challenges. The main 18-hole, 6,015 yard course weaves among trees and gentle hills, offering three sets of tees for different handicaps, while a shorter 9-hole executive layout lets golfers squeeze in a round before their magic driver turns back into a useless tent pole.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 70 course
  • Length of 6,015 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 68.6 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 119 from the farthest tees

At Keney Golf Course, players follow an emerald track chiseled into the heavily wooded terrain of the 694-acre Keney Park. Devereaux Emmet and Alfred M. Tull unveiled their course design in 1927, inviting golfers to challenge their skills on the 18-hole, 6,014-yard layout. Along the way, golfers encounter an intersecting stream, dense forest groves, and a cemetery that borders several holes, but none of the quicksand bunkers incorporated by the original architects.

Course at a Glance

  • 18-hole, par 70
  • Total length of 6,014 yards from the back tees
  • Rating of 68.1 from the back tees
  • Slope of 115 from the back tees
