“A place where everyone is welcome and feels at home”
The fun began on the Anderson Family Farm when brother and sister Robert Anderson and Christina Anderson-Benn designed and constructed Toddy Brook Golf Course right on the very land they were born and raised on.
Switching from farming to landscaping in 1986 and working hard to grow the company, Robert’s dream of having a golf course, which began as a seed, eventually took root and in 2002 the front nine of Toddy Brook was opened to the public with the blood and sweat of Scott Lancaster, Toddy Brook’s superintendent.
He, Robert and Chrissy continued with that vision and in 2005, the back nine was finished and Toddy Brook was finally complete. This par 71 course, with five sets of tees, honest and true greens, rolling hills, elevation drops up to 150 feet and plenty of water welcomes a great round of golf for all levels of players.
