Pe­quot Golf Club

At in Stonington, you can catch the salty scent of Long Is­land Sound waft­ing over the tops of the bloom­ing trees. Tra­di­tional New Eng­land stone walls line the scenic course and the club­house is a sprawl­ing farm­house with a cheer­ful yel­low and white in­te­rior. The large out­door pa­tio and grill are a fa­vorite among reg­u­lars, and the club space is avail­able for in­ti­mate par­ties and gath­er­ings.

First and fore­most, Pe­quot is a great place to work on your game, mem­bers say. It’s de­scribed as a very for­giv­ing, mod­er­ately chal­leng­ing course that at­tracts begin­ners and die-hard play­ers alike. Each hole is dif­fer­ent from the pre­vi­ous one, with a hand­ful of doglegs, wa­ter haz­ards and el­e­va­tion changes. Pe­quot’s spe­cial Twi­light Rate of­fers a great value for play af­ter 2 p.m.

The other thing you’ll note right away is the friendly and wel­com­ing staff. The fa­cil­ity has built an ac­tive and loyal com­mu­nity of golfers, with men, women’s and se­niors as­so­ci­a­tions, char­i­ta­ble fundrais­ers, and other spe­cial events. Check out the club’s newsletter and Face­book page for tips and trivia on the finer points of the game.

Rates start around $30; Twi­light Rate for 18 holes is $18.
