Detailed description of Wallingford Country Club

Wallingford Country Club, is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Wallingford, Connecticut.

Wallingford Country Club was founded in the year of the Spanish American War - when the battleship Maine was being blown up in Havana Harbor and Teddy Roosevelt was leading the famous charge up San Juan Hill. The year was 1898.

The original course was nine-hole layout that had a total distance of 2,402 yards. It ran over undulating land, interspersed with well-placed natural hazards. The first greenskeeper of record was a Charles Foster, whose main job was to trim the rough grass down to point where it was possible to roll the ball into the hole. Grounds crews consisted of farmers from the area who hired to use their horse-drawn sickle cutters in clearing the fairways. the roughs were always cut twice during the summer whether they needed the cutting or not.

As the saying goes, "You've come a long way baby." The course has grown over the years to become one of the most respected courses in Connecticut. Wallingford today is a par 71 championship course that plays to 6,388 yards from the back tees. The course rating is 71.4 and the slope rating is 129.
