Traditions Golf Club is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Wallingford, Connecticut.
The Tradition Golf Club At Wallingford originally was known as Harbor Ridge Golf Course. The course first opened for play in 1981 as a 9 hole venue. The course was designed by Ted Manning. A back nine was added in 1999 to bring the course to a full 18-holes. Wetlands come into play on four of the new nine holes. Also new is an island green on hole #12, a 167-yard, par 3, which has a slightly elevated tee. Alfred H. Tull designed the back nine.
Roger Rulewich, former chief architect for Robert Trent Jones, Sr., renovated The Tradition at Wallingford. He sought to make the course more playable while preserving the course's reputation with shotmakers. Rulewich pleased shotmakers and casual players alike by resculpting the greens, widening the fairways, rough, and tree-lined areas, and adding a continuous cart path.
The Tradition Golf Club At Wallingford was rated by a local publication as the 3rd most difficult course in the state.

Still a tad winter worn in March...but one of the best values for money in all of CT. Great variety in holes (and island green par 3, very good balance of holes--some long par fours, a driveable par 4, wonderful par 3's. Price performance is extraordinary ($29 weekday includes cart in March; $35 is normal main season pricing). Pro shop and bar are very good.
