MIDDLEFIELD, Conn. (March 10, 2016) – The light at the end of the tunnel known as “Winter” begins to shine brighter as temperatures rise and the fruit trees start to emerge from hibernation. Signaling that spring is here, Lyman Orchards has announced that the Jones Course, Player Course and Apple Nine course are now open for the 2016 season.
“Each year, we are thrilled to re-open our courses and welcome in the new season,” said Jason Beffert, general manager, Lyman Orchards Golf Club. “We are looking forward to an exciting 2016 season which will be filled with fun events commemorating the 275th Anniversary of Lyman Orchards, and welcoming in golfers, old and new, from across the region.”
The Jones Course, designed by famed golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, St, is a breathtaking 18-hole course that 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 44 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.
The Player Course features picturesque views of the Connecticut landscape, including a complete 360-degree view of the New England scenery on holes 11 and 13. This course, which was designed by Gary Player, winner of 165 professional golf tournaments and one of only five men to capture the golf Grand Slam, rewards well-positioned drives and accurate iron play with 34 bunkers protecting relatively small greens. Playing anywhere from 4,667 yards to 6,600 yards, the Player Course is ideal for all skill levels.
The Apple Nine Course, a 9-hole, 1,600 yard course is less intimidating for novices yet challenging for experienced golfers looking to shave strokes off their game. The par-29 course was ranked as the top Par 3 course in Connecticut and 10th overall in New England by New England Golf Monthly magazine. The Apple Nine wraps around one of Golf Range Association of America’s Top 50 Stand Alone hitting ranges in the US and provides a unique learning and playing experience for golfers of all ages and abilities.
For those looking to learn the game, or improve their skills, instructional programs for men and women begin on March 21st. Junior programs begin in May.
With rounds starting at $25 for nine holes, the Lyman Orchards Golf Club provides a premium golf experience at an affordable price. Avid players can also utilize the Advantage Card or Player Development Program Card for further savings and benefits.
Please be advised that, for the time being, the Jones and Apple Nine courses will only be open to walking golfers. Carts are available on the Player Course. In the coming weeks guests can look forward to carts being permitted on all courses and also to the 2016 opening of the driving ranges.
