The Keneyriffic Index for  8/1 - 8/5 is...

Monday:  7 chalk outlines out of 10

Tuesday:  7

Wednesday:  7

Thursday:  7

Friday:  7

​...not a great week for golf unless you're participating in the GT British Experience 8/4.

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.

award winning Tracks  your source for golf course reviews, logo golf apparel, and other golf nonsense.


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. will help you kill time and avoid eye contact, while possibly providing some useful nuggets along the way.

We’ve developed a list of Tracks to review for 2016, but based on our experience, cannot share that info.  prior to posting the reviews.  Rest assured, it’s a good mix.  

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...

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.

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.

Welcome to

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.

As anyone who's read anything on the GT site knows, the pending review of the New and Improved Keney may be 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):

  • An update of the Goody (Goodwin GC) review that will set the record straight on this revisionist history puff piece will be posted as soon as we take some new pics to accompany the updated review, which is ready to go.  (The original Goody review posted on this site has been taken down until the new one can be posted)
  • 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 form, "Informative in a useless sort of way."
