Pequabuck is a beautiful, semi private 18 hole course located in Terryville CT, which is just minutes away from the ESPN headquarters in Bristol. Noted for years as the “working” man’s club, they have a great history section on their site as well a great description that I will borrow -“Built over 100 years ago, Pequabuck is routed through a mature pine forest, the Bristol Reservoir, and railroad tracks. The course is immaculately groomed and features firm fairways with lighting fast greens” The front is nice but the back 9 is my favorite. Starts off with a long par 3 who’s fairway/green sits floating in the Bristol reservoir. Looks alone, #11 is my favorite hole in the state. The right side is lined with monstrous pines that remind me of Pinehurst, and the left side runs the length of the beautiful reservoir. Another cool hole here is the downhill par 3 16th. The thought of an old train track running through it would sound like an eye soar but to me it adds a little character.
I had the pleasure of playing this track with an ESPN soccer anchor who was great company. Only thing better would have been pairing up with Buccigross!
Tee times can be made on their site or on GolfNow
The club house could use a makeover but this course is not about the glitz and glamour. Overall it gets a 9 from me which is very generous.

Only pic I could find- doesn’t do it justice especially being an overcast day
