Very interesting golf course. Not overly long but really makes you think about what clubs to hit and what shot to play. Great greens and very friendly pro shop and outside staff. I will definitely play it again.

I'm a +15 handicapper, play 10-20 rounds/ season and have low expectations of a golf course, but I left this course very unimpressed with what it had to offer. The starter was an older gentleman that was very rude (who gave off the impression that he did not like his job) and told our group numerous times to stay on the cart path (even before we teed off).

We teed off on a Friday afternoon, and only saw the cart staff twice the entire round. The course was decently maintained however, they enforced a cart path only policy - in which case, it would have been easier to walk the course given the course cart path layout. On every hole, expect a plane to fly overhead every 2-3 minutes if you don't mind the distraction also consider that it makes it difficult to talk to your party as well.

As someone has indicated below, BEGINNERS BEWARE - given that this course is in rural GTA - it's tight, and the designer plugged a creek that runs through every hole as well as has ponds on every few holes (it's largely target golf).

The pro-shop staff & restaurant was small, the staff were fine. Cost was an issue, but I won't be playing here again. The course was not busy, which helped the speed of play, but it was telling that others likely think the same thing. My recommendation is to drive 30 extra minutes to play at a REAL golf course that doesn't have planes landing <2km away.

Although it is not located in a fancy area and has planes flying overhead every couple of seconds I always enjoy this course. With water on every hole and the need to draw and fade the ball on almost every tee shot it is a shotmakers delight. The staff is always friendly and make me feel welcome. As it is the home base for the NHL Alumni there is always the chance of seeing hockey players that were my hero's when I was a boy.

This course is like a ride at an amusement park. Planes fly just over your head every 5 minutes causing quite the distraction. Your attention is needed because the water on almost every hole requires excessive target golf (leave your driver at home). You could play this course with your irons.

Several areas under repair, only one beverage cart, and grounds keepers that keep the motors running as you hit, drive over your ball, or stand on the tee box and chat with each other while you try to hit.

Not worth the money, go elsewhere.
