27 HOLES, NO WAITING
Elmridge Golf Course
is set on 250 acres of a former dairy farmin Pawcatuck, and its rolling hills are accented by a beautiful array of ornamental trees and flowers. The clubhouse, whose floor-to-ceiling windows overlook three ponds, is available for weddings and special events of up to 100 guests.
Members regularly note the terrific condition of the greens, and say the variety of holes keeps the game interesting, particularly #5, a par 5 on the WhiteWest round. You can actually catch sight of this hole from the northbound lane on Route 95. At 595 yards long, you’ll need an exceptional drive, an exceptional second shot, and a solid third shot to the undulating green. Check it out if you’re looking for a challenge.
Since 1966, the course has offered an attractive combination of rates and services for groups, outings and tournaments, and the number of holes keep your game moving.
The course’s 225-yard driving range is open 7 days a week, with a great deal of 50 balls for $5, and PGA Teaching Pro Chuck Slenker is on hand to offer guidance.
The course’s mobile site lets you book tee times directly from your cell phone, and game tips and special offers are posted to Facebook.
Elmridge’s sister course, Cedar Ridge off Route 95 in East Lyme, is a well-groomed par 3, 18-hole executive course, designed to give players the opportunity to hone their accuracy in a 2-3 hour round.
Rates start at $22 at Cedar Ridge, and $31 at Elmridge.
