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 10/1 - 10/5 is...
Monday: 8 chalk outlines out of 10
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.

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.
Reviews in the GT pipeline (at various stages of editing):
Keney: the pending review is moving along at the course's pace of play; glacially slow.
Farmingbury Hills, Wolcott/Southington town line
Hop Meadow Country Club, Simsbury, Connecticut. Private course that allowed us past the entrance to the parking lot and let us play. Seemed interesting enough to write a review.
Arrowhead GC, Rochester, New York. This review only gets posted if the "editor" takes some creative license. Golf near the Lake Erie canal; how can that not be a great review?
