had a 12:30 tee time and to was extremely crowed at the start. after waiting 10 minutes past our time we finally started. waited on over 80% of all shots all day. waited on the about 50% of the tees up to 5 minutes to tee off. when we did encounter the on course ranger his answer was it is crowded and there was nothing he could do. finally finished in FIVE hours.

while this course is extremely difficult, having no one to get players to move along is unacceptable. and this is after the snowbirds have left for home already...

The 17 of 18 greens were in excellent shape. The fairways were in good shape. The sand traps were raked and the sand was soft. 3.5 hours to play 18 is most excellent.

Let me first say that the course and most of the staff are both excellent. After playing I left a few of my clubs to be regripped. After paying the kid in he pro shop told us we owed him $20 in cash for the installation. When I showed him the sign that stated "installation included" on sign for regripping he said it was wrong and we paid it. A few days later we left my husband's clubs for regripping. After paying, we asked him how much for labor, he said it was included in grip cost. We were scammed by this kid the first time but after being called out, he didn't try it again on us. We should have spoke to management the first time but instead, just paid the extra cash. Watch out for this scammer.

At age 71, playing it forward at Wentworth makes a great deal of sense. This former country club went through a course condition downturn but has come back to what it was 18 months after going public, a solid value. If your ego can take it, try playing it forward and hopefully you'll enjoy the new variety of clubs "required" to bring you score down and your spirits up.

We were a 2some, second tee time of the day, they sent a 5 some out in front of us, must have been members cause they made sure to hurry and tee off before we could ask to play through. Waited on every shot, every hole, never again, avoid this course

I have played Wentworth several times and love the layout and the challenge.

however the course was in very poor condition.The tee boxes were mostly sand.

There was sand from the bunkers leeching all over the surrounding areas including several greens. Very disappointed!!

Fairways were very dry and hard. A number of sandy patches makes for difficult lies. Also the pin placement was very difficult. I've played this course before. Today was uncharacteristic.

The staff was nice. The clubhouse, Mulligan's pub, and practice areas are nice as well. The course however, isn't in top shape. The greens roll pretty true, but are also pretty hard as far as being receptive to your approach shots. The bunkers are deep, and there are a lot of them, which isn't really an issue, just an observation for people reading the reviews (I like playing from bunkers). They do however have rocks in them, so make sure you rake a place without rocks before you hit. They are also very fluffy, FYI. The course layout puts a premium on accuracy with many trees and elevated greens. Some even come into play in the center of certain fairways, so knowing the course is also important if you are going to score well. I don't mind shooting a bad score, that doesn't determine if I enjoyed playing a course. But with this course, with a combination of layout and condition, is not a very enjoyable place to play. The only way I would play this course again would maybe be in the summer months where it may be in its best shape, AND if I lived within 15 minutes of the course. But as someone who travels 30-50 minutes to play courses, this is not one i'd be willing to play again. To the staff: thank you for making the experience as enjoyable as possible. Best of luck with the course.

I've played this course 3 times over the years and love it every time. Yes, it's tight, but choose your right club and you'll be fine. Only reason for a 4 in conditions was due to the sand...needs more attention. Love the layout. It was the cheapest of all courses we played due to their Two for Tues. We were treated very well by all staff and were the second and third groups off, so no back up at all. Mulligans was good for lunch and we were 30 mins away from our Jays game. Everything was GREAT!

Awesome course if you have a sense of humor.

Most greens are elevated and some fairways have small hills.

It is a very challenging course with many greens surrounded by traps. You must be on the low side of the greens or prepare yourself for a tough up and down.
