Despite its seemingly short length of 2,668 yards from the back tees, Minnechaug Golf Course keeps rounds interesting by packing a cornocopia of hazards into a 9-hole layout. Players confront an onslaught of elevation changes, dogleg turns, and trees that won’t respond to verbal commands throughout the par 35 course. And the degree of difficultry truly ramps up on the par 3 eighth, which invites players to unsheathe their 9-iron or pitching wedge, take stock of the prevailing winds, and send tee shots flying toward an island green that rests on the other side of a 126-yard water hazard.

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

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
  • Three sets of tees

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).

The 18-hole course at The Tradition at Windsor showcases a design that features emerald chutes enveloped by dense forest. The 6,068-yard layout recently received a major renovation by Roger Rulewich, former chief architect for legendary designer Robert Trent Jones, Sr. The course now features repositioned and reshaped bunkers, rendering it more enjoyable, difficult, and suited for sunbathing in the sand. Though the bunkers may look slightly different, most of the course's original splendor remains.

On the fourth hole, golfers can lay up short of the pond that lies just beyond the end of the fairway, leaving a mid- to short-iron onto the elevated green. On the 18th-hole finale, players must bypass a stream that cuts the par 5 in half, then lay up at the bottom of a large hill rather than trying to reach the green in two or waiting for tectonic plate shifts to make it more approachable.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 71 course
  • Total length of 6,068 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 69.8 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 119 from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole
