Over priced 200%.
160$ tax in (for NS golfers, more for away) for Each golfer, total of 640$ for a foursome, with a rock crusher , Construction, highways and high-rise around you, this is not a 5 star course as has been reviewed.
Links is just a word here.
Many other courses in NS, at far less of a cost, to be had here in this awesome province. A suburb municipal course shouldn't be 160$ ea.

That said, the amount they charge has brought a nicely turfed course, fast greens and an overabundance of employees.

Enjoy!

Tried the indoor simulator as a prep to the up coming golf season. Not as good as some others I had tried in the area. Great selection of courses to choose from the the apparatus not particularly user friendly. Often didn’t ‘read’ putts and several times the simulator froze’ once actually resulted in the need to reset. Expensive for what we got. Other locations are better.

Very challenging course. A 560 yard par 5 from the middle tees with an elevated green is excessive. Followed by a 400 yard par 4 with water along the left and no bailout area by the green. Par 3s are very well laid out. Front nine tee boxes are beat up. Some very good views along the course. Very noisy construction around the course. If you’re from out of province you pay a premium. Guess they don’t like golf tourists. Bag boys don’t want to clean clubs. They watch you as you do them yourself.

Dont believe me?...ask anyone who just played in the 2019 national mens amateur. Im sure that it halted a few aspiring pros right in there tracks. You have to know each hole well. Winging it with no practice round will swifly turn into a trunk slammer. Try it from the blacks if you think you have game....guess what...you dont. :) I wont play anywhere else.

Have now played over 1200 golf courses. Loved this one! Mr McBroom and I have not always agreed on the principles of golf course architecture but this one is a beauty. Excellent challenge off the tee and quite demanding but very playable. Probably best course in Halifax.

It was a last minute decision to check out this relatively new course.

A bit pricey, especially if you're a non-resident, which will cost you an extra $50 per player. They actually cancelled our initial transaction, and then added on the extra $100 and did a secondary transaction. It would have been better if they inquired about our address prior to the transaction, but to cancel it and then charge us more just seemed desperate and greedy.

The driving range, putting green, and course were in decent shape. The Starter was more friendly and professional than those at the Pro Shop. It was a warm day and he gave us a couple bottles of water which was appreciated.

There was a group ahead of us that played slow and we were waiting on several holes as they did not let us pass them. I would recommend that they hire a Marshall.

Overall, I'm glad that we had an opportunity to play a new course, but there is definitely room for improvement.

Excellent condition, thoughtful holes, and a demanding course. Like to play it a few times as several shots were not "what you see is what you get." Staff was very friendly and pace of play was good. More target golf than requiring you to be a bomber.

Played this and Glen Arbor and recommend Brunello. GA is a good layout (easier) but the condition of the course was bad (no sand in the cart or on par 3s to repair divots, bunkers a mess, spots all over fairways/greens)? Apparently those in the community can play for a low yearly free and treat it as "their course" - but if you are paying a private rate for public course conditions, you should pass.

It can be long and it can be target golf, but it demands every club in your bag. It offers a very nice club house with practice facility and a challenging track, but you pay dearly for it. It still has it's new smell, so enjoy it having a fully challenging golf course in the city.

Beautiful course and very well maintained as well as very friendly starters. Course is a typical links course, very unforgiving and tough but beautiful panoramic views especially back 9.

Club might want to consider offering golfers a break at the bar especially on drinks and perhaps offer more variety on food items as the bar area is very nice and outdoor patio offers a beautiful view of 18th hole. Pity the place is not busy!

All in all a pleasurable course to play .
