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!

Great practice for your short game. Tee boxes are in pretty good shape overall. Have to hit over water on one hole and it comes into play a bit on another. Bunkers to consider on most holes...green are nice to putt on and can be tricky on a few holes.

The bugs are a bit of a nuisance on the last 4-5 holes...they have bug spray at the cash...us it. Only takes 60-80 minutes to play 9...really enjoyed the course!

Strange entrance way into a parking lot that does not really indicate the 9 hole golf course. Very pleasant reception and the reservation was up on the system ready to go. The screen should only indicate 9 holes. If you want to do it again it costs $10. Push/Pull carts just a couple bucks. The course is very well maintained. It looked like no one had ever played the grass was good well manicured and the greens in impeccable state. This is a terrific course to practice your short game. All you need to take is your putter, 9 iron, 8 iron and maybe a 7. Only complaint was the amount of little black nats along the way.

Will definitely go again.
