GT Update of the decade:  It's all about Hard Hittin' New Britain!  It was originally the 2015 Update of the Year, but it's the reigning update until it gets knocked off its perch, possibly with a glock.


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.

The Keneyriffic Index for  8/22 - 8/26 is...


Monday:  9 chalk outlines out of 10

Tuesday:  10!

Wednesday:  8

Thursday:  8 (GT Championship at Airways)

Friday:  8

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.

If you enjoy golf, or sitting on your ass mind-melding with a screen while reading about golf, or are staring at your phone as you walk into oncoming traffic, you may be in the right place.  GoatTrackGolf.com will help you kill time and avoid eye contact, while possibly providing some useful nuggets along the way.


As of late August, we’ve worked through a fair amount of our list of Tracks to review for 2016.  Some reviews are still being edited prior to posting, some are still on the to do list. 


As always, we highly recommend checking out the Frog Rock from Simsbury Farms when it pops up (at right on desk view or below on phone view) it's the most iconic slab on the GT site.  Very soothing in the sunset...

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.

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.

"informative...in a useless sort of way..."

As anyone who's read anything on the GT site knows, the pending review of the New and Improved Keney was touted as possibly the "most important" review of the year.  It's still important, but we're tamping it down a bit.  Schedule of greens fees and scorecard are available here, if you can't get them from the Keney facebook page.

Reviews in the GT pipeline (at various stages of editing, to be posted soon):

  • Keney
  • The Tradition Golf Club at Oak Lane 
  • Portland GC
  • Raceway GC
  • Whitney Farms
  • Also brought to our attention, the need to update the Copper Hill GC review, following significant course improvements...and other stuff.
  • A lower priority is updating and cleaning up the East Hartford GC review, which is out of date and a mess in general.​
  • Also working on a review of Canton Public GC.  Even though the course no longer exists, it's etched in GT lore and the review will be instructional...or true to GoatTrackGolf.com form, "Informative in a useless sort of way."
