History of Whitney Farms Golf Course
The Whitneys originally established this property as a farm with rare race horse breeding stables. A dairy farm existed on this land as well.
The land was purchased in the mid 1970’s by Chris Bargas Sr. and after a three year design, Whitney Farms opened as a Public Golf Course in 1982. During this time, over three hundred homes were added to form a desirable golf community.
In the process of re-designing the land, the architects took advantage of the ponds, scenic views and natural wildlife in its overall layout.
The 18 hole golf course was designed by Hal Purdy and built by Chris Bargas Sr.Yardages range from 5480 yards to 6714 yards with slope levels of 127 to 134.
Whitney Farms has been awarded for its good value and has received top marks for its condition by Golf Digest, Connecticut Magazine, Connecticut Post and Connecticut Golf Magazine. You will experience a challenging round with scenic views at all playing levels.
