History Revisited: Shennecossett Golf Course in Groton a jewel of the region
20 Nov 2019
Although games similar to the sport of golf can be traced back to the 12th century, it is generally accepted that the modern version of the game was developed in Scotland in the 1700s and became a popular sport in the United States in the mid to late 1800s.
One of Groton’s oldest and most famous landmarks, both past and present, is the Shennecossett Golf Course. Although there is no specific information as to the exact date of when or why the course was built, information does exist to provide possible plausible answers to these questions.
