Had a nice game despite bouts of rain. We decided to eat here after the game as it was late and we were hungry. They had an excellent buffet. Turns out it was their last hurray before closing up for the season. All four of us enjoyed the food. The service was very good and everyone were on happy pills.

My wife and I played Lora Bay as part of a long weekend trip to the Collingwood area. The staff at the bag drop and the pro shop were friendly and helpful. There is a good practice area to warm up with. The front and back nine are fairly different. The front nine is more links style with fescue and... More

Until recently dining experiences at Lora Bay were quite pleasant and reasonably priced with great service. However Lora Bay has recently contracted a new provider for their bar and dining area. This in my mind has resulted in higher prices, less selection on the menu, and a much lower degree of service. Dined there recently and they seemed very short... More

Loved the round. Tee decks for every player. Scenic and in excellent condition despite the horrific winter we've had in Ontario.

Let's deal with the positives first. The course design is interesting enough, challenging, but not stupidly difficult. Only 3 or 4 holes offer a view of Georgian Bay, a disappointment. The clubhouse is very attractive, but not ostentatious. Staff were very friendly. Now the negatives: Course condition left a lot to be desired, and it was a good thing that... More

This is a big course with a few stunning holes and the houses do not crowd the course. The pace of play can be slow. Make time to eat on the lovely outdoor patio with one of the best views around. Worth a visit

While formerly only a ski destination, the Blue Mountains offers a premier golf experience. I recommend spending a week hitting the Scottish Links course at Cobble Stone, just north of Owen Sound and the equally beautiful standard courses at Lora Bay and the Georgian Bay club which are located on each side of Thornbury. The latter two courses are amongst... More

Big greens, tough to read. Course is in great shape. Too many bunkers so stay out! Nice staff. Practice range and putting area are a bonus

I love the Club at Lora Bay. I've had the privilege of playing it once each year for the past 3 years and it is a joy. Great design, beautiful conditioning...lots of fun
