Minnechaug Golf Course, Glastonbury CT (reviewed October, 2007)
Before my first trip to this course, I was encouraged by the listing on ctgolfer.com, hoping for a Canton Public-esque Tracking experience, i.e. a 9-hole course in the sticks designed in the late 1940's. Sorry to report that this course doesn't qualify as a Track, it's more of a "tweener", not quite enough "Track charm," not quite Tunxis or Rockledgeeither. I knew something was awry when I saw the housing development bordering the course. I asked "Ornery Bob" (long-time resident Tracking expert east of the Connecticut River) to confirm whether this course had undergone a major design change since the housing development took root. He sent this link, much appreciated. Obviously I take issue with the opinion that the greens are difficult to read. Tracking Rule #1, "there is no break on a green at a public course!" (Rockledge and Indian Springs being notable exceptions)
Course Pluses: a brick oven pizza joint (Gina's) adjacent to the pro shop; a decent place to hang out after a round and/or solve the problem of finding dinner. High marks given for that.
