Great River Golf Club has garnered national recognition for its impressive course and top-notch facilities. Golfers enjoy some of the best scenery in southern Connecticut as the backdrop to their game, and discover how it also can add to the challenge. Twelve holes involve water, six of which run along the Housatonic River. Proximity to the river creates unusual winds that surely will add complexity to shots. Golfers will find wooded terrain as they play the front nine and more of a links-style openness after making the turn.
