The Rensselaer Hartford Alumni Chapter proudly presents the Springtime PGA Master Private Clinic Series to be hosted at Wintonbury Hills Golf Course in Bloomfield, Connecticut, just 15 minutes from Hartford. It is a beautifully conditioned course in a peaceful and relaxing setting. The course represents Pete Dye's first championship design in New England. The 6,711 yard, par 70 layout has a combination of open links-style and traditional tree-lined holes to provide golfers a challenging and enjoyable round of golf.

A series of three private group clinics by P.G.A. Master Ciaran Carr is available for a single price of $50 for dues paid members of the Hartford Chapter and $70 for their guest. Non-dues paid alumni price is $60 per person and their guest is $75. The number of participants for the series is limited to no more than ten. Registration is limited to one guest per alumnus/a. Sessions are one (1) hour with the first 20 minutes as a demo and the remaining 40 minutes for one on one working sessions with each person.
