Featured Golf Course Review:
Connecticut Golf Land -- A great pitch-and-putt
Review by: Bill Sandberg Although part of it will soon be bulldozed for a car dealership, I highly reccomend getting there while it's still a full 18 holes! Some holes are lacking in creativity, but quite a few give tricky shots over bunkers, mounded terrain, and alongside the Hockanum River. It's relatively affordable, and a fun way to kill an hour and a half or so.

Tallwood Country Club -- Beautiful and challenging layout
Review by: Ray Embury The name certainly fit's the layout. The front side of this tree-lined course is tight but somewhat forgiving on certain holes. The front has three par three's and two par 5's making it a par 35. Newly constructed tee's on two of the par 3's, number 3 and 6, make them both over 200 yards. To add to the difficulty #3 plays over water. The 400 yard plus 5th hole was the most difficult, an uphill, dogleg right to a large two-tier green. The backside seem's like water everywhere. It comes directly into play on 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, & 17. Number 15 is a spectacular hole with water along the right that turns in front of the green to make your approach shot about 150 to 160 over water to a large green. Number 17 is a drive over a hill to a green fully protected by a large pond in front and surrounded by a natural bowl around the back and side. This was the most difficult hole on the course. The backside has only one par 3 and two par 5's making par 37. Playing from the blue tee's presents a good challenge for the mid to low handicapper as the course plays to about 6400 yards. The white tees present a nice but fair challenge for the mid to high handicap. Beautiful, quite setting surrounded by woods and farmland. Excellent practice facility, best East of the CT. River. Large, two-tier driving range, three practice greens, one with a fairway chipping area and bunker. Modest clubhouse, a true golfing club.
