golf/restaurants near mohegan sun casino

Post by BashDash » Tue Jun 19, 2018 9:00 am

Hi all BH,

Thank you for all the help in the past it is greatly appreciated.

I am meeting my brother on a Sunday for a concert at Mohegan Sun and hoping to play golf the following day.

Current plans:
Stay at Hyatt Place with free shuttle to Mohegan Sun for concert.
Golf in morning at Norwich Golf Club.

Are there any local restaurants that would be recommended? Has anyone played Norwich Golf Club? I think we will pass on the Mohegan Sun Course due to price. It is more about the company than the golf as we don't a get a chance to see or play often. Unless someone thinks that course is amazing.

Thanks for any advice!

There's a mall kinda area right at Mohegan Sun and good restaurants. You could drive south to Groton/New London/the Lymes for seafood restaurants on the water or at least near the water. I was just there Sunday as my son's working the summer at Electric Boat in Groton.

No idea on golf. To me, a Golf is a front wheel drive sporty hatch back.

There are restaurants for every taste and wallet right in Foxwoods. Mohegan Sun is about 5-10 miles away. They tell me Fox Hopyard in East Haddam is a great golf course (but not cheap). Mystic Seaport is a fun place to visit, USS Nautilis (first nuclear sub) close by also at the USN Sub Base

Grew up nearby, lots of great memories from Norwich Country Club, difficult course, great choice, true New England design, lots of sidehill, uphill and downhill lies, prepare yourself, thanks for the post!

Thanks for all replies.

Happysteward. Thanks for the reply! Our current plan is play nine late Sunday afternoon. Then grab a cold beverage and some food. Then play 18 on Monday. Can you recommend a place to eat? We are probably going to stay at the Hyatt. Would u play the 9 and 18 at Norwich?

Thanks!

There are 3 restaurants with the same owner that we frequent when in the Groton area. All 3 are less than a half hour from Norwich, unless there is some fluke traffic jam. Olio in Groton, Red 36 overlooking the water in Mystic, and Bravo Bravo just over the bridge in the center of Mystic. They are all good casual restaurants with slightly different menus. You can find the menus on line.
