GT Update of the Week (possibly of the month, possibly longer): It's all about Hard Hittin' New Britain!
When a local news story combines the terms "golf etiquette" and "pulled out a gun," it's bound to grab some attention from GT readers, especially when it's at a course with which we're familiar and have reviewed on this site. The GT take on it; almost by popular demand.

Is it a good day to golf in the greater Hartford area (8 chalk outlines out of 10 or above)? Forget Doppler! You can (usually) trust the Keneyriffic Index.
We're still in the process of converting the GT site to a format with a lot of unresolved technical/design flaws. There's a lot of clean-up work remaining here, but we're moving in the right direction and have fixed/re-constructed a lot of the reviews. The "glacial pace" has accelerated to an "annoyingly slow, stuck behind a fivesome at a muni on Sunday afternoon pace." If you run across a GT review that has no pics or is missing a "GT logo course rating," it's probably because they got lost in the conversion process and haven't been cleaned up yet. Be patient, it'll get fixed. In the interim, check out the Frog Rock from Simsbury Farms when it pops up at right, it's the most iconic slab on the GT site. Very relaxing.
Reviews to be posted soon, which have been sitting on the editing shelf for a while, include:
In a nutshell, as a GT site fan once put it...
"Why TW when you can GT?" Good point.
Hats, bag towels, commemorative T-shirts; we have everything to improve your game, other than lessons.
Why the chalk outlines on the Keneyriffic Index? Short answer: 9th rough near the access road; police tape, body recovered, end of story; a Keney classic.
On our next trip through Keney Park, we'll take/post a couple of snapshots, to let the Tracking Public know how things are progressing on the "golf course rebuild."
There seems to be a fair amount of bullshit in the article referenced above, but we're reserving judgment until the course is finally back in play. The Keney layout is classic; one of our all-time favorites.
After the leaves are down and the pins have been pulled, we select an "Award Winning Track" for the year. Sometimes it's a Goat Track, sometimes not; either way, it's the most enjoyable "golf experience" of the year, in our opinion.
The Keneyriffic Index for 6/29 - 7/3 is...
