About the Course

Great River Golf Club is an 18-hole championship golf course located in Milford, CT. Built in 2001 by renown golf architect Tom Fazio II, this modern architectural design has a balanced mix of links and parkland playing characteristics. With the course built along the Housatonic River, players are challenged with water or native penalty areas on every hole, forcing golfers to be precise with their tee shots and skillfully creative with their approach shots. The par 72 course plays just over 7,000 yards from the championship tees and features one of the hardest sets of par 3’s in the state.

The Housatonic River also provides a constant breeze across the course that turns an already difficult course, into one that will challenge the best players shot shaping and course management skills. Relief will not come from the putting greens as these subtle green contours will require your full attention with every putt.

Sacred Heart University purchased Great River Golf Club in 2016 and is now the home of their Division 1 men’s & women’s golf program.  Since it’s creation, Great River is constantly ranked as one of the best courses in Connecticut.
