Located very close to Mohegan Sun Casino is Norwich Golf Course. The course is slightly above average and has some fun, challenging holes on it. Hole 1 starts you off easy with a short, wide opened, downhill 4. The tee box is completely surrounded by tall shrubs so you should have no distractions here. Next two holes are dog legs with #3 being very tough if you can’t draw the ball. Next up is the handicap 1 hole, stretching over 400 yds and going straight uphill with a blind second shot. Holes 5-8 are pretty plain and simple and lead up to the first and only par 3 on the front. The tee box here lines you up left where there is a huge trap and a water hazard that is not that far out of play especially if you hit the hardpan near the path. You start to make your way in with a huge dogleg right that has a hill long of the fairway serving as a backstop if you miss your fade. #11 is wide open but requires a great second shot on this left sloping green. Next up you have the two par 5s that go back and forth with par 3s after each one. To play the final three holes you need to cross a busy street. After going uphill on 16 you get to play my favorite hole here. #17 has a downhill funneling fairway that more than likely will put your ball in a prime scoring spot. You end the par 35 back nine and your round with a slightly uphill par 3.
If you are looking for a nice cheap weekend trip. I suggest playing here rather than Mohegan’s course and staying at the Hyatt rather than Mohegan.
