The food was pretty good and the view of the lake is gorgeous! Servers are always nice and eager to please.

“A second time I won't go”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

This course did not have a single sand trap that did not have standing water. It also is an unfair course for a number of reasons. The second hole on Escarpment has grass bunkers, two side by each about 10 yards from the green and totally not visible as they are at bottom of hill. Why put grass bunkers in front of the green up so close to it and at bottom of hill? There is a hole on Canal nine where the cart path is parallel to the fairway and the fairway is only about 25 feet wide! The cart path takes up about 5ft of this narrow fairway ...oh and it is downhill. Either side of this narrow fairway are huge canopies of trees for a blind shot to the green uphill! I like challenging courses but this is not challenging but just plain unfair.

The worst...the manager defended their sand bunkers by saying the sand has clay base and the rain doesn't help. Did he think there wouldn't be rain and did he understnd that the sand bunkers are designed to have sand not mud?

I suggest to avoid this unfair and unnecessarily difficult course made worse by standing water in the sand...in all bunkers

“A must play course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

I have played Royal Niagara last year and what a difference. The course is in pristine shape this year. Greens are not the fastest but roll truly and the fairways are the best in the area. The staff was very nice and accommodating. We stayed in Niagara Falls and it took us only 10 minutes to get to the course. Me and my wife had already booked a tee time in August. We played Old Canal and Escarpment and want to try the Iron Bridge next time. This course is challenging and we found not to use our Driver on every hole.

“Iron bridge to Old Canal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Played this the other week for the first time. had always put off playing royal niagara due to feedback from friends claiming its nothing special.
the course was in excellent shape, the carts worked perfectly and the staff was friendly.
the problem lies within the course design. its just not the most enjoyable course to play.
target golf, constantly hitting into narrow fairways over creeks with loads of fescue...to propped up greens with bunkers built into the sides. it didn't feel natural. some holes are to the point of being too gimmicky.
For the green fees asked for this course you can do way better locally.

“Redemption”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Was at this golf club back in August 2012 and wasn't a good experience. But what impressed me was that the complaint I made to management was taken seriously and they treated me and my foursome to a nice afternoon. The course was in good shape and the service was very good.

It was nice to see the management team at Kaneff value customer feedback.
