The Course

Our goal is to offer a first class championship golf experience that golfers at every level can enjoy. We believe that our course is a classic of original New England design.

The Windham Club, Golf Course, North Windham Connecticut, Classic New England Style Golf X
Our course features a vintage 1922 design and an ongoing philosophy that is based on strategic and tactical adaptability.

It was designed to reward precise play through the air and on the ground. There are no “forced carries” and all but our shortest holes are built to gracefully receive good shots whether they are high or low or rolling.

Our course plays fast and firm, and rewards a good precise short game. Our greens roll true, usually at a speed around 10. We don’t play “target golf” at Windham, because our fairways roll with the lay of the land and there is nothing artificial added to what the land itself has dictated. What you see is almost always what you get at Windham.

AN ORIGINAL, IMPROVED
This philosophy is “ongoing” because we are working on the course constantly to make it even better. 2014 was a year of restoration, as we renovated and re-built bunkers, brought our greens back to their traditional excellent conditioning, and cleaned up our ponds as well as a few decades of organics around the trees. But we also opened two new tee areas on No. 1, and cleared ground for fairway extensions on No. 11 and No. 17.

Our course changed for the better again in 2015. Our new fairway extensions added about 250 yards to the course from the black tees. New No. 17 is an extraordinary, and long, par-5 that meanders downhill and then around a ridge for almost 600 yards from the tips. New No. 11 is a short par-5 from the everyday tees, but a very long par-4 from the blacks. And hole #3, formerly a very short and straight par-4 has become a heroic 255 yard par-3 from the back tees, and a nicely challenging 200-yarder for the average player. 2015 also saw the addition of our short game practice green. All of these improvements to the course will maintain, and we hope enhance, the original design intent of our classic course.

COURSE TOUR

After a multi-million-dollar renewal and renovation, our circa-1922 course has returned to its roots as a terrific parkland course that offers a challenge to golfers of all skill levels. Our philosophy is that golf should be fun, hazards should be fair, and conditions should be excellent. The course plays to par-70 from the black tees, at 6,435 yards and our everyday tees play to par-72 at 6,225 yards.

AROUND THE BEND ON 9

The front 9 ends with a long downhill sharp dogleg left around the tree line — length matters here, a lot. If you can’t hit it down the hill, then stay to the right for an unobstructed second shot.

PAST THE POND TO 15

No. 15 is a very muscular par-4 (435 from the black tees), with water in play to the right and a lot of ground to cover. Hit it hard and straight twice and you'll have a chance to make a birdie or walk a way with a par.

EYEBALL BUNKER ON 17

No. 17 is a big par-5 (575 from the black tees) that plays around a bend. The 'eyeball bunker' in the middle-of the fairway is not much of a hazard but it's a very useful aiming device for second shots.
