Designed by Tommy Fazio, Great River is challenging and awe-inspiring. In 2005 Great River was named #2 Top Rated Golf Course in the State of Connecticut and ranked #34 on America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses List by Golf Digest Magazine.

Twelve holes involve a water challenge at Great River, with six holes bordering the Housatonic River, and the winds that are intrinsic to the location.

The front nine weave through wooded terrain, the back nine exhibit a links style course. On the front nine you will travel over one of fourteen wooden bridges as you approach the green of the sixth, Great River’s signature hole. The backdrop of six is the river; with a fifty-foot stone wall surrounding the left side of the green.

A thirty-foot waterfall cascades just off the eleventh hole, making it a rewarding and challenging 218 yards.

Players of all levels are accommodated with five sets of tees stretching the course from 5,170 to 7,191 yards. The back tees play at an intimidating 150 slope; offering the most seasoned golfer an arduous challenge.
