“EXCELLENT!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

My husband and his buddy golf here a lot. The range is fabulous and has lots of wildlife on it. The greens are immaculate and well maintained. If you are lucky you may even get to see a deer.

“One of the best in Ontario”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Beautiful course. Above average prices but worth it. Even the thicket -off fairways is well maintained.

“Outstanding Golf Course”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

What a beautiful course! I played with my father and a couple of his friends and was blown away by both the amazing scenery and the excellent staff. I will try to play here as often as possible!

“Beautiful course, but needs a couple of upgrades.”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

My friends and I played on a Sunday morning. Check in went quickly, the young lady who served us was courteous and helpful with her answers. The starter on the first tee was a very personable gentleman, with a good sense of humor.

While the course was beautiful and well manicured, we noticed by the second tee that there were no signs outlining the layout of the hole. Nor was there an outline on the scorecard. Therefore, people playing here for the first time have to guess certain distances and take a few blind shots with no idea what was ahead.

We liked the fact that the starter waited until the group ahead had cleared the first tee before letting the next group tee off. On a par 4, that should have given plenty of separation for the entire round. Unfortunately, we got backed up by the 7th hole and had to wait on nearly every tee box for the rest of the round. We never saw a marshal for the entire round, thus had no one to press the slower groups ahead.

I would have given a 5 out of 5 if the pace of play hadn't been so slow and if the course had signage showing the layout of each hole by the tee box (or at least on the scorecard).

“Well conditioned golf course”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

I enjoyed the conditions of this golf course. The greens were of a good speed and putts held the line. The sand in the traps was good. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The design is a little weak for the conditions. The ingress to the greens was poor as on most of the holes you could roll a miss hit shot up onto the green. Well designed golf holes do not allow this. I was surprised by this as most things at this location are 1st class.
