The Connecticut Open is the Connecticut state open golf tournament, open to both amateur and professional golfers. It is organized by the Connecticut State Golf Association. It has been played annually since 1931 (except for war years) at a variety of courses around the state. It was considered a PGA Tour event in the 1930s.


Note: Although this tournament started in 1931, Jim Barnes is credited with his second official PGA Tour victory in the 1916 Connecticut Open.[1]
