1:30 ain't even that bad. Last weekend we tried to get out as a foursome in Southern CT. Everywhere we called told us the earliest we could play was like 5:00. When was the last time this happened?It’s so busy that the best tee time I could get was 1:30. Wife is pissed because I likely won’t be home for dinner and miss helping with bedtime for the 5 month old. Consider it my Father’s Day present.
I’ve only really played for 5 or so years and it’s typically been this busy. Maybe more so this year slightly1:30 ain't even that bad. Last weekend we tried to get out as foursome in Southern CT.

Short Beach, right? Spent lots of time there in middle and high school. One time years ago I was there with my dad and cousin, who was a fairly new golfer. The 8th or 9th hole is a par 3 that goes over a small pond, and there is a street with houses off to the left. My cousin hooked his iron severely and cleared the netting, and ended up hitting a house with wood shingles dead on. Didn't do any damage luckily, but you could probably hear the noise it made a mile away.
The last couple of years my father and I have taken a trip up to Treehouse to pick up some beer, then crashed overnight in Manchester followed by playing this course. It was definitely a lot of fun. And obviously that 8th hole is a blast.Played a 9 hole course in Glastonbury today - Minnechaug. Fun and challenging. It has a 120-yard island green par 3. The next hole is also a par 3, and it's a beast, with about 130 yards of water to carry. Played it twice to get in the 18.
I agree with this. Jones is harder I think but Player is quirky with a lot of blinds. Once you’ve played Player a couple times and learned it, it’s easier for sure.Frankly, I find Players somewhat easier. It's tricked up in a few places, but it's shorter and you don't have to be as big a hitter to score well.
Crestbrook in Watertown I assume? I haven’t played it in 20 years I’m sure but it was a good track back then. Built on a hill some of it horizontal like, lots of tough lies ball above, ball below. But fairly long so tee game a must but again, it’s been a long time. Always in nice shape also.Have a tee time for Crestbroiok Saturday. I’ve heard pretty good things. Any feedback?
Played wintonbury for the first time this year. Loved it, a lot of very interesting holes and a few elevated greens with runoff potential. I’d recommend the combo tee selection as I felt the front most tees were a little short.
This is when I game went downhill playing here. What a windy and challenging course. Excellent condition and fun but man it can get ya.
