Wintonbury Hills Golf Course & Men’s Golf Association Continues Support for Local Community

Course Raises Funds for Bloomfield Food Bank

(BLOOMFIELD, Conn.) – Wintonbury Hills Golf Course – the only Pete Dye-designed course in New England – continued their support for the local Bloomfield Food Bank through their men’s club amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Don Tinker, president of the Wintonbury Men’s Golf Association, reported the association organized several club events in a second effort to support the local community food bank.  The men’s club proudly hosted a charity event in October to raise a total of $3,250 in support.

“With how well the first round of fundraising went, we are extremely humbled by how the second push exceeded all expectations for the food bank,” says Tinker. “The local turnout has been immense, and we are happy our golfers could have a little fun along the way.”

Opened in 2004, Wintonbury Hills represents Dye's first and only championship design in New England. The classic links-style 6,711-yard, par-70 layout is owned by the Town of Bloomfield since the course’s inception, this beautiful layout was ranked No. 1 in Golfweek’s “2020 Best Courses You Can Play in Connecticut.”

“The continued support of the local community is inspiring,” says Ciaran Carr, PGA, general manager of Wintonbury Hills Golf Course. “It’s been a very rough year for everyone, so the least we can do is give back to those who need it most.”

I think it is very important to have good equipment and a place for sports in small towns. However NY needs it no less. I only realized this when I moved to Zambia. I still follow the general situation. Sometimes I even place bets on I am glad to see that golf continues to develop.

Olen samaa mieltä. Tilanteemme on samanlainen. Vaikka asun Suomessa, pidän todella golf-teemasta ja siitä, miten yleistä se on Yhdysvalloissa. Katson enemmän otteluita kotona, mutta lyön vetoa koko ajan osoitteessa On paljon mielenkiintoisempaa seurata tätä kaunista urheilua.
