|Oxford Greens and Fox Hopyard are two beautiful courses that are well worth a visit by any golfer.
Oxford Greens has been open since June 2005 and Mark Mungeam designed this championship layout course. Among other impressive features, it boasts of five sets of tees that are suitable for players of all abilities. Its’ beauty mainly lies in the fact that a substantial part of the course has been carefully curved out of the woods west of Naugatuck State Forest. It incorporates and takes full advantage of more than 680 acres of natural and breathtaking beauty of the forest and woods. The design of this course can best be described as neoclassical.
Arguably the highlight of any experience at Oxford Greens is when you enter the second hole. Here one is immediately bathed by the wonderful vista of water, grass and sunsets. This is no doubt one of Connecticut’s most impressive golf courses.
Fox Hopyard Golf Club in East Haddam, Connecticut, is situated adjacent to the Devil’s Hopyard State Park, and is another fine course. It is both a golf course with a great design and also one that is beautifully conditioned. When playing at close to 7,000 yards from the back tees, this Par 71 layout gives you woods, meadows, water, wetlands and even wildlife in a combination that no golfer can forget in a hurry. The course was designed by one Roger Rulewich and is probably one of his most memorable designs ever. The Clubhouse, which is built right atop a 30 foot rock ledge, has a commanding view of the southwest 9th and 15th to 18th holes.
Both Oxford Greens and Fox Hopyard courses should be carefully taken note of by any golfer who is yet to experience either and should then be visited at the least excuse, whenever a golfer gets the chance.
