Tips for Golfing in Connecticut this Season

Tee time is here, and we don’t necessarily mean a cup of it.

As one of the leading Connecticut resorts, Saybrook Point Inn, Marina & Spa offers seasonal mini golf, along with being close to excellent private and public courses for you to practice your swing. Here are some tips for golfing this season including our recommendations for what you’ll want to bring with you.

Putt At the River

For a fantastic time with your family, head right next door from our lovely inn and you can Mini Golf right by the river! Pick your color because it’s going to be a colorfully fun mini golf with the whole family in tow as our clubs and golf balls are painted in bright hues. Play a round or many, our Mini Golf at Saybrook Point is sure to be a hit with everyone!

Tip: Challenge your family to a game and whoever wins gets to pick out dessert at Fresh Salt for the whole family to enjoy!

Golfing in CT

If you’re looking for something beyond a round or two of putt-putt, there are plenty of locations to tee off throughout Connecticut. Nearby we have a private country club, a public golf course, and one with a scenic view! Check out Old Lyme Country Club for 9-holes which features stunning panoramas and you’ll get access to more than just the course when you golf here! Fenwick Golf Course is the oldest course in the whole state, and with it being public, anyone is able to experience lovely water views as you tee off on all nine holes. Fox Hopyard Golf Course is located in East Haddam, but offers a stunning scenic drive and 18-holes for those looking for a full run. Whether you try one or all three, golfing in Connecticut is beautiful, relaxing, and fun, especially when you’re near Old Saybrook!

Tip: Get a lesson! Even if you’ve been golfing for a while, there is no reason not to book an experience with a golfing guide. They can help perfect your swing and maybe show you something new. If you’re brand new to the sport, this is an ideal way of learning the lay of the land.

What to Bring

Whether you’re a novice or a pro, you’re going to want to have a set of clubs with you. You’ll also want to dress appropriately as courses tend to have strict rules on what to wear. Check with the clubhouse, but most locations require a collared shirt and pants or shorts (no jeans). Shoes without cleats are also vital because you don’t want to damage the green when walking on it.

Tip: Contact the clubhouse of the course you want to play to ensure you can rent clubs, carts, and other items if you cannot travel with them.

Stay at Saybrook!

No matter if you master mini golf or you shoot for the stars at our nearby courses, golfing in Connecticut is something you’ll want to experience when vacationing with Saybrook Point, Marina, & Spa!
