Royal Ashburn (formerly Thunderbird G&CC) is of the best courses you can play anywhere. If you want to obtain your pro card for the Canadian tour or become a teaching pro this is where you come to Q school. I think that says it all. Being semi-private and open to the public it is a rare treat, as club of this caliber is generally private.

“Royal Ashburn Golf”

Very good test of your golfing skills. Gently rolling terrain. Course conditioning is excellent. Greens are large and undulating and relatively fast. Several holes have water hazards that need to be negotiated. Excellent clubhouse with good food.

“Great Test of Golf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

Royal Ashburn is a great test of your golf game. You'll need to move the ball right and left … the greens are tricky … and there's NO easy hole. It's always in great shape … the pro shop is helpful and gives you the ability to demo clubs without pay! The 1st Tee Starter is dressed in a Kilt … the score card indicates the pin positions you're playing that day and allows lots of room for scoring your Putts, Greens and Fairways … as well as your score! There's a full practice range available.

It's a reasonably priced course and a great value. Don't miss out.

BTW … they promote a golf + dinner package that is excellent. Something like $90 which includes golf + cart + dinner … can you do better? I don't think so!

“Excellent Championship course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2003

I visited from Atlanta and this golf course is by far one of the best I have played. Very challenging, well groomed and maintained, this course shows pride of ownership. I recommend to all golfers visiting the Toronto area.
