Candlewood Valley Country Club

Candlewood is a very flat 18 hole course located in New Milford CT.  Hole one will set the tone for the day with a reachable par 5 that will get your confidence up or make you want to start over. There is a river that winds through the course that makes for a water hazard of some sort on almost every hole. The course is not too long and not that difficult as long as you stay out of the water(easier said then done). I enjoyed holes #3 and #4,both par 3s, but wish they were not back to back.  I played with a local who said the format was changed recently(some holes on the front went to the back etc) which makes for eight par 4s and one par 3 on the back.  Power lines and a couple forced in doglegs take away from this very nice fairly priced course.

They offer specials on their site and are on EZlinks. Overall I give it a 6.5
