The Jones Course

Known affectionately as "The Jones Course," this breathtaking 18-hole course is among every golfer's favorites. Featuring rolling hills on the front nine and varying dog legs on the back, the course meanders through acres of woodlands, wetlands, and grasslands. Four sets of tees on each hole, coupled with 53 bunkers mixed in, provide a unique challenge to players of all abilities. On the back nine, water comes into play on seven holes, and the undulating slope of the greens will challenge both astute and novice players.

COURSE ARCHITECT / Robert Trent Jones, Sr.

jones_architect.jpgRobert Trent Jones, Sr., designed (or redesigned) about 500 golf courses in at least 40 US states and 35 other countries around the world. It has been jokingly said that, "The sun never sets on a Robert Trent Jones golf course."

Jones’ courses are noted for their artistic landscaping, innovative use of bunkers and liberal use of water hazards that encourage a high level of strategy. He believed that golf should be a risk/reward sport, and his designs encourage daring play. Holes are meant to be a "hard par but easy bogey." His signature became the most recognizable of any golf course architect around the globe.

Jack Lyman, then President of Lyman Orchards, hired Jones in the mid 1960s to help transform the business. He envisioned Lyman Orchards as central Connecticut's premier recreational and family destination anchored by an 18-hole championship golf course. In 1969 the golf course opened to rave reviews and continues to be one of the best courses in Connecticut.
