Detailed description of Raceway Golf Club

Raceway Golf Club is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Thompson, Connecticut.

Raceway Golf Club first opened for play in 1947. The course was designed by Don Hoenig.

Par for the course is 71. From the back tees, the course plays to 6412 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 5437 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 5, a par-5 that plays to 558 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 4, a par-3 that plays to 165 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 5, a 558 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 18, a 347 yard par-4.

During the early 1960’s the second nine holes were constructed offering the current layout and configuration that remains today despite many green, tee, sand trap, fairway renovations and the addition of irrigation. The last remaining green from the original 1940’s construction – built in true New England “push up” style – is #16.

There is a little side entertainment while playing the course. Watching racing cars, while playing golf was a fun experience. The course was wet, but in all fairness, it was exciting playing this early in the season. The sand traps were impeccable, and I played out of a bunch of them. There was not much roll in the fairways, so although it is not a long course, 6074, from the white tees, it played longer. Also, there are not many penal areas, so bogey was my worst hole. The meat of the course are holes #10,11,&12. The best night for eating in the lounge are Friday nights, fresh fish, my favorite food.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area
