Lyman Orchards Golf Club in Middlefield, Connecticut
MIDDLEFIELD, Conn. - Lyman Orchards Golf Club opened in 1969 with Robert Trent Jones designing the Jones Course, which plays through acres of woodlands, grasslands and wetlands. Featuring rolling hills on the front nine and varying dog-legs on the back nine, the course is the Monday qualifying site for the Travelers Championship on the PGA Tour.
The second golf course at Lyman Orchards - the Player Course - was, of course, designed by Gary Player. This layout, which opened in 1994, takes players through apple orchards and offers ample elevation changes throughout the design. It rewards accurate iron play and well positioned drives with 34 bunkers protecting relatively small greens.
Both courses at Lyman Orchards Golf Club have been recognized by the Zagat Survey as being among the best courses to play in the United States. Lyman Orchards Golf Club offers five different membership types.
