Good for higher handicap and not so long hitters.

There is water in places but we'll marked and not so much that it is able to be navigated.

Greens are good.

The course is fairly straight forward, with enough water holes and bunkers to keep it interesting. The greens need some work, but it's early in the season and they had dressed them so it made for some okay, but not great, putting. We had two problems. The person placing the bags on the cart did not strap on one of the bags properly and it fell off on the first hole. He also didn't know the course for washroom locations. Secondly, the one cart we had kept failing on the course and we actually had to push it a couple of times to get it going again. We advised management at the end of the round, but they didn't seem to really care - just said that it happens some times. As far as I'm concerned I don't think that should ever happen. So all in all, it probably won't be our first choice to go back again.

People there were great. Only complaint was condition of the greens. They were very blotchy and bumpy. They could remedy this easily by planting more winter grass. The rest of the course was fine and very fair on price. Just need better greens guys but a nice family course.

We played here 4/5 years ago and I really thought this old MB course would shut down. It was in terrible condition. I told myself I'd never return. Well I was surprised to see the changes. .....clubhouse is clean and organized with more touch ups underway. The fairways were good....not great but good....bunkers were maintained.....carts were clean. The greens were average, some being rough and bumpy....but much improved . The staff was friendly and helpful.........overall a good day of golf for a very fair price.

The price was right for the first round of the season. The course was in ok shape but the cart paths are atrocious and dangerous with pot holes and tree roots everywhere. The greens were in rough shape. I wouldn't go back.

The course needs work.

Quite a few putting greens have ruts.

The score card did not clearly show water hazards to be crossed as the card was printed in black & white.

Pace of play was extremely slow.

I would not play again, nor would I recommend this course.

We are always hard at work to improve course conditions and hope that next time you play you see noticeable improvement. We're also sorry that the pace was slow when you played.

Course is close to our condo. Fairways and greens are good but some sand traps are muddy. Pace of play was good. The cartpaths need cleaning to remove the pine cones and are sort of rough due to large tree roots. Altogether a good course to play golf for our handicaps.

Greens are what you'd expect during the winter months, but overall the course is in fine shape. The bunkers are well maintained, and the sand is not being neglected, as you might experience in the winter. Pace of play is phenomenal.
