Richter Park Golf Course

Richter Park is often mentioned in the top course in the state conversation. For me in falls in the 5-10 range. Its located on Aunt Hack Rd(sounds made up) in Danbury. The course layout is very nice and its spread out well touching on the reservoir and Boggs Pond. Holes 3 and 5 are great par 3s that require you to carry water the whole way. The tee box on 7 sits all alone on the reservoir on this tough par 5. If you hit your drive 300yds, best bet would be to layup as the fairway runs downhill and to the right into water. My favorite hole here is #12 which is a dog leg right par 5. You need to lay up here as the green is tiny and is almost totally surrounded by water.There are signs marked Humus-quicksand on 15 and 16. Although I always enjoyed Humus and thought quicksand was make believe, they make these holes narrow and tough. After a short par 3 you are sent in with an uphill dogleg long 4. This is where your match can usually be won or lost.

They have a great virtual yardage book on their site.

Overall it gets an 8.5 from me. Tee times can be made on their site or GolfNow
