“Growing the game among juniors is important to golf’s vitality,” says Casper, a member of the PGA and World Golf Hall of Fame. “I look forward to visiting both Wintonbury Hills and Metacomet School to share golf knowledge and stories.”

One of the finest courses in the United States expertly designed by renowned architect Pete Dye, the 18-hole, par-70, 6,711 yard layout is replete with stunning vistas of the Tunxis Reservoir and heavily-treed ridges that surround the property.

Recently named the No. 2 “Best Course You Can Play” in Connecticut and No. 11 “Municipal Course” by Golfweek, Wintonbury Hills offers a blend of links-style and forested holes with generous rolling fairways to help navigate the 125 bunkers framing the course.

Dye’s masterful attention to detail makes Wintonbury Hills a beautiful and challenging test of golf for all player levels.
