Though I'm a regular golfer, my partners were new and it was a great test for them. Green size and speed was great. Course was lush, and well managed. Only thought would be nice to have 100yd markers to help figure distances for the newer people who are short of the green. A great test, even for me, I will be back..

The greens were very slow, very very slow. The course was muddy despite the fact that it has not rained in a few days, which made the bugs bad as well. The other people on the course were nice enough to let me play through, as I was playing as a single. I inquired about a junior rate for people 18 and under, then the guy in the pro shop scoffed at me, as though there is no such thing.

Hi, Levi. Thank you for taking the time to review the course. You wrote a pretty heavy review and with that, we want to work to make as many imprvoements from it as possible. We encourage you to give us specifics where the course drained poorly and which greens were not ideal over others. This way we can work to make your comments turn into real change at the course. Feel free to update your review or reach out to the team at the course for a direct means of communication. Thanks for playing Thudnerbird Sports Centre, we hope you can give us a second chance.

I played Thunderbird with my 11 year old grandson. He is learning to golf and we appreciate that Thunderbird is a good length to learn.

We were never pushed by the people behind us (also with youth) and enjoyed our round.

I noticed an improvement on the insect situation, as the last time I played there, there were so many mosquitos it was very difficult to focus. This time, it was much better.

Just love this course because of the great conditions - better than 90% of public courses in Ottawa. Also, you can get on and off in 1.5 hours and it don't cost an arm and a leg. Also, it gets your short game going in a really fun way so you can score better when you get to the long courses. What's not to like? Awesome.

I went early, so basically had the course to myself. The sun was a factor (Brightness) at that time and was hard to see for some holes. The course was in very good shape. I went to practice my short game. Only used 8, 9, PW and putter. I enjoyed the course and will go again. Great price using Golfnow!
