The course is in insanely bad shape they need to keep it maintained it was unplayable entirely but instead of shutting down the course they just kept it open grass wasn't cut in almost every other hole because of rain the course had been trashed from other careless golfers never the less will not be back due to lack of how they maintain this place and they won't take my money twice

Northdale keeps their greens in above average shape. Running 10 plus. Fairways are a challenge for them.

Staff has always been friendly and I have a great time there.

Price is always fair which results in a more crowded course and play follows along with the crowd.

The course itself has some nice holes, but overall rated as average as they work with what they have.

I will play it again on another GolfNow Hot Deal but would not pay full price. It's a nice course but not well kept. It's a shame because it could be a nice course. Pace of play was very good because I played on a weekday afternoon. I hear it's brutal on the weekends.

Bought a hot deal at 2:52. Wouldn't let us on course until 3:20. Then told us to drive back through people and start on sixteen. Where someone was teeing off. So went back to seventeen. Got three holes in before it started raining. No thanks. Won't be going there again.

Best part about this course was the greens, not fast but not slow. A few blind tee shots. The course was sneakily challenging with a lot of narrow fairways. Would definitely go back!

Played 18 holes in 2:45. Kids under 16 play free, so I brought my son and had a lot of fun. Greens rolled great, tees and fairways were a little rough because it's been so dry. Staff was very courteous and helpful. I will definitely return for a quick weeknight round.

The fairways were like concrete took a toll on playing the full 18 was glad when it was over. Iv'e played here at least 3 times a year for over 20 plus years I won't be back. After the front nine I got to #10 and found 3 foursomes waiting to start their round. I was told they just closed the front for maintenance - what gives here . I left never to return!

For the third time in three tries I was told the it was wide open (I was trying to get a round in before my wife got off work), and for the third time the gentleman behind the desk flat out lied to me. This time when I asked and he said it was clear I informed him that the last two times he had indicated that I had gotten stuck behind groups before the end of the third hole. He assured me that it was "clear", and that I "should be able to fly right around". Today I caught the first group at hole three, let me through on four, caught the next group on six, let me through on seven, and caught the last group on eight and they did not let me through. I work in a customer service position. Two things are paramount, be nice and be honest. So, instead of potentially losing my green fee for today because my schedule might have precluded me from playing a busy course, this establishment has lost my business permanently because of a lack of integrity.
