Did I mention the great golf. This course is beautiful and pristine Not to be missed if you have never played there you must. The fairways are very wide and forgiving with many levels, dips, valleys and towering tee boxes. The staff are first rate and the pro shop well stocked. Great golf experience not to be missed. Even at... More

I've been to Bigwin multiple times over the last few years. I'm a restaurant member and have high expectations as a result. I ate there recently and found the experience disappointing. The great part was the view and surroundings. But the steak was overdone and somewhat tough and the service was not great - I'd expect professional service for the... More

We had a lovely evening dinner in the Rotunda dining room at Bigwin Island Golf Club. The service was excellent - our server was just learning the ropes and was so pleasant. The appetizers, main, and desserts were very good. As well the list of wine selections was extensive. The views of course from this dining room are spectacular -... More

We visited the Bigwin Golf Club and enjoyed dinner in the Marine Dining Room. What a delightful experience - from the lovely boat ride over to the island, arrival at the attractive dock, exploring the historic building and photographs, a delicious meal over-looking the lake and then the full moon reflected on the water - extraordinary.

The course was in good condition. Well manicured fairways, bunkers, sand traps and tee blocks. Most of the greens were rather fast, which was to our liking. Very friendly staff throughout the entire Bigwin Island golf experience.

Must agree with the ‘public beware’ comments. Terrible experience booking spring tee times in the past two seasons.  Other courses in the area are much friendlier and accommodating (special rates, responsive communication).  It's a beautiful course but has a very elitest tone.  In a vacation friendly region this course doesn't do the little things that count.  After trying to get...

As guests in the neighbourhood cottages, we were introduced to the Bigwyn. Thought it was too troublesome to cross to the island --- turned out to be an extra treat for the breezy ride. It was the only time we were here. The course was lush, spacious and very beautifully maintained. The cart paths provided mostly smooth rides ( important... More
