Did you know that golf is a great game for cardiovascular health? That's because golfers can walk up to six miles each round and burn as many as 1,400 calories. When you're ready to tee off, here are three courses near The Mark apartments you don't want to miss:
Great River Golf Club
Named one of the "Best Places to Play in America" by Golf Digest, Great River is an 18-hole golf club that welcomes golfers of all skill levels. The website states that it is the region's most unique and challenging golf course, and players begin on a wooded front 9 before making their way to the back 9 that is known for raising a player's score. This is because water comes into play on every hole.
Whitney Farms Golf Course
What was once a property that featured a rare horse breeding stable is now a scenic 18-hole golf course that has received recognition from publications such as Golf Digest and Connecticut Golf Magazine. There are no membership fees and the course states that the wide fairways and challenging greens are always in excellent shape. Those who wish to enjoy a meal before or after their round can do so at the Sand Trap Grill and Bar.
The Tradition Golf Club at Oak Lane
Designed by Geoffrey Cornish, this golf club is the number one seller of online tee times in New England. Known for offering a private club experience without the fees, it features well-maintained fairways, sand traps, water hazards, and mature trees throughout the course.
