New facilities at Connecticut club


The Lyman Orchards club in Connecticut will break ground on its new learning centre development next month. The centre plans includes a nine hole executive course.

Course owners the Lyman family, management firm Billy Casper Golf and golf architect Mark Mungeam ASGCA have worked together on the new development. The par 29 nine hole course will measure 1,600 yards with bentgrass greens built to USGA specifications. Holes will range between 115-315 yards in length.

Also planned is a 40-stall combination grass and artificial turf driving range with target greens and sand traps, short-game practice area and 2,000 sq ft clubhouse. The centre at Lyman Orchards is scheduled to open next spring.

“The Golf Center reinforces the Lyman family's forward-thinking commitment to promote the game of golf and attract a new and broader demographic,” says Lyman Farms CEO Steve Ciskowski. “This crossover facility will complement our two existing courses and represents a bold advance, distancing Lyman Orchards from the current landscape.”
