A man named Peter Graham of Lakeville came to Winsted one spring day scouting land for, of all things, a golf course. That was his dream, and he found his track for a six-hole course on some pasture off Torringford Street. A lot has happened in the last 100 years. Two world wars, a depression, Rock ‘n Roll, Arnie’s Army, Television, the Internet and Tiger. But here in the green woods lies this little 10-hole track that to this day remains a good test of your short game as any course; it’s been a home for generations of families. And it’s been a great place for youngsters to come of age, to learn the golf game when that’s all it is—and all it has to be.
