Course: Founded in 1976, Tashua Knolls Golf Course celebrated its fortieth anniversary this past year. The original 18-hole layout designed by Al Zikorus measures 6,540 yards and a par of 72 from the championship tees. True to Zikorus’ style of architecture, the course features winding and undulating fairways matched with a difficult set of contoured greens that will prove challenging for the competitors.

A First: The 2017 Connecticut Amateur will mark the first time in the one hundred and fifteen year history of the championship that a champion will be crowned on a public golf course. The tournament was conducted at Shennecossett Golf Course in 1922, 1923 and 1926, which was a private course at the time, and was conducted Lake of Isles in 2007, which utilized both the private and the public courses.
