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 6/26 - 6/30 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.
June: the list of Tracks to review in 2017 has taken shape, just a matter of getting to them. There are some links from prior reviews on this site that have gone bad. They're in the process of being replaced.
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.
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 2016. It's still important, but we're tamping it down a bit and rethinking how this review will be presented.
Now that we've been to "the promised land," a/k/a the refurbished 19th/Great Room at Keney, following the 2017 Urban Goat Track Open, the GT Review of Keney can be posted...after it gets off the cutting room floor.
Reviews in the GT pipeline (at various stages of editing):
Keney: the pending review is designed to mimic the pace of play; maybe that's too much.
Arrowhead GC, Rochester, New York. We're excited about this one. We have sources that want to provide a review on the GT site; they just don't want to write it. Fair enough. Once we work through that, we'll post it.
