Connecticut

The New England state of Connecticut is often referred to as the Constitution or Nutmeg State and originally took its name from the Connecticut River which cuts through the state. The Dutch were the first Europeans to settle in the present day state capital, Hartford, but it was the English that colonized Connecticut in the early 17th century.

The New England state of Connecticut is often referred to as the Constitution or Nutmeg State and originally took its name from the Connecticut River which cuts through the state. The Dutch were the first Europeans to settle in the present day state capital, Hartford, but it was the English that colonized Connecticut in the early 17th century.

Unlike the neighboring states of New York and Massachusetts, Connecticut does not possess the same high quality golfing strength and depth, but the Nutmeg State boasts circa 160 golf clubs playing over 180 golf courses. However, its standard bearer architecturally comes in the shape of a collegiate golf course.

The layout at Yale University has experienced ups and downs since it debuted in the 1920s. Routed across dramatic terrain by Charles Blair Macdonald and Seth Raynor, Yale is the jewel in Connecticut's crown that was once neglected, then cherished and then neglected again. We sincerely hope the Golden Age gem will shine brightly once again.

According to the author and sportswriter, Dan Jenkins, The Country Club of Fairfield is Seth Raynor’s finest creation, stating, “it's short but covered up with charm.” The Stanwich Club at Greenwich competes a trio of top-drawer golf courses for the Constitution State. Apparently, the name chosen for the club had been part of the local lexicon for nearly 250 years.
