Fenwick Golf Course
Fenwick Golf Course is a convenient two-minute drive from Saybrook Point Inn, so you would be a fool not to play a round at this historic, river-view course. Fenwick Golf is the oldest public course in the state of Connecticut. This nine-hole hidden gem has been open since 1896. Fenwick Golf’s best attribute, arguably, is its quiet seclusion. The rates are tough to beat, and the staff is helpful and friendly. Take a swing at Fenwick Golf with the stunning Connecticut River as a backdrop.

Fox Hopyard Golf Club is a scenic 14-mile drive away from your accommodation. Fox Hopyard is one of the top 20 courses in Connecticut, and it’s well worth the trip.

The course is on a vast 530 acres of land and features a handful tranquil ponds. The course is often is a top fall destination because of the surrounding dense forest and rolling hills.
