    About the Course

Untouched Scenery for an Untouchable Game of Golf

Once a private hunting and fishing reserve, Swansea CC retains its natural beauty. This championship par-72 course offers six sets of tees ranging from 5200 to nearly 7000 yards of immaculate greens and fairways and one of the most welcoming courses in Southern New England.

Swansea Country Club has a superb layout, courtesy of architect Geoffrey Cornish, is easy to walk and passes the test of a course you can enjoy playing everyday.

With its beautiful tree lines that hug every hole and the majestic Palmer River that caresses the entire course, it is sometimes hard to tell which is more enjoyable, the game or the view.

As you travel the course, every hole offers a new and different challenge. With six different tee placements, every level of golfer can enjoy Swansea.

Holes Description

  • Hole #1

    Accuracy pays dividends both off the tee and around the green. Playing the right side of the fairway will give you the best approach to the hole. Shoot for the middle of the green regardless of pin placement.
  • Hole #2

    Considered the best par 5 of the course, there is less trouble up the right side with better approach to the green. Play your second shot to set up the best personal distance for your approach. Birdie is certainly an opportunity on this hole.
  • Hole #3

    Accuracy is crucial to avoid a big score. Many play to arrive in three to avoid trouble and also to avoid the Cornish signature fairway tree. If you end up with par you’ve done quite well.
  • Hole #4

    A long par3, straightforward yet very difficult to par. Stay below the pin or short for your best chance at par.
  • Hole #5

    Our signature hole. The best drive is 210-225 yards down the middle. The water and trees that line this hole are beautiful but add difficulty. Go long or right off the tee and you get wet, go short and you could get blocked by the trees. The green is heavily sloped from the back to the front.
  • Hole #6

    Wind is often a bigger factor than is apparent from the tee. Avoid downhill or side hill putts if you can.
  • Hole #7

    A very unusual short par 4 due to the shape, length and slope of the green. Off the tee, the left side trees are closer than they appear. The green is hourglass shaped, very narrow, and highly sloped. Par is a good score.
  • Hole #8

    Is often down wind and reachable in two for longer hitters. Drive up the right side for the best approach. The left side brings big scores into play.
  • Hole #9

    Is crucial to a great score on the front nine. It is a long uphill finishing hole. A right to left shaped shot works very well. The green slopes from back right to front left and approach shots bounce left. Stay below the hole.
  • Hole #10

    A relatively easy starting hole. The accurate shooter will beat the long hitter almost every time.
  • Hole #11

    A middle iron par 3 for many players and has several bunkers in play. Wind can be a factor from the tee. The green is further from the front bunker than it appears.
  • Hole #12

    A relatively easy par 4. However, It can be a difficult to make par off the right, left or back of green.
  • Hole #13

    A very long par 5 that is at least a 3 shot hole for even the longest hitters. The oaks that frame the left side of the hole are closer than they appear from the tee. The hole rewards a fade from the tee.
  • Hole #14

    A drivable par 4 for longer hitters. Back to front sloping of the green requires getting close to the pin for a good birdie opportunity.
  • Hole #15

    With tall trees left and right and the backside and bunker surrounding the green, hole No. 15 can be a long and difficult par 3. It is best to bounce the ball in with a right to left shaped shot. Par is always a good score here.
  • Hole #16

    A difficult 90-degree dogleg right that requires a 180-yard tee shot (from the white markers) from left to right and/or cutting the corner. Even a good tee shot will leave a 200 yard second to the green.
  • Hole #17

    A short par 5 that may be reachable in two for long hitters. You can reduce the yardage by playing up the right side. However, the right is protected by a large pond. A birdie score is a possibility.
  • Hole #18

    A challenging finish to a great course. It is an uphill finishing hole worthy of its handicap rating. A right to left tee shot pays dividends. The green slopes more than is apparent including a big right to left slope. Bogie is not a bad score.
