Our church group held our annual golf tournament her yesterday. The on-course staff were great, carts were loaded up and ready to go. The day started out well then severe thunderstorms rolled into the area. All golfers were asked to return to the clubhouse for safety reasons … which was the right thing to do. At that point, only 5 holes were played. After almost 2hrs of downpour, pro-shop staff informed us that they would be issuing rainchecks to all golfers … they were just waiting for management approval. That’s when things started going downhill. Management had directed staff to only refund 75% of what each golfer had paid … not 100% or a raincheck for a future round. Throughout my many years of golfing, I’ve been called of the course due to weather and in all cases rainchecks were issued for a future round OR full value of whatever voucher used if less than 8 holes were played. Keeping in mind that this was a tournament and each golfer had paid a discounted rate, we certainly would understand if they couldn’t offer a raincheck for a future round at regular rate. Refunding 100% paid less the tournament setup fee would have been appropriate. The decision to refund 75% was simply poor customer service.

If anyone from their management team reads my review, I would encourage them to reconsider their decision.

Thank you for your comments, it certainly was unfortunate that the weather caused a disruption of play on Saturday.

Our rain check policy states that if less than 6 holes have been completed then a full rain check will be issued for both the value of the green fee and power cart. If between 6 and 13 holes have been completed then a 50% rain check will be issued. We had 2 groups on Saturday and between the 2 it was determined that golfers had completed anywhere from 5 to 7 holes (a few of the earlier groups actually completed 8 holes). As it would not be possible to fully determine which groups played more or less holes (nor did we want to penalize those that played more), it was decided to offer all golfers a 75% rain check. As a result, effectively the value taken for the golf played was $20, with remainder being issued as a rain check. It was also offered that this rain check could be extended through to the end of the 2018 season if required (typically expires end of the current season).

We believed this to be a fair resolution given the circumstances.

Richmond Hill is one of the few remaining courses open in the Greater Toronto Area. There were about 10 cars in the lot. A few hardened golfers in the proshop waiting to pay for their tee-time. No starter, no marshalls...just golf. Perfect. Walking rates only. The course is not long but the last hole is a steady climb all the way out of the valley. Good walk NOT SPOILED.

There are number of tree-lined holes and water hazards that come into play. Some very tricky and narrow landing spots off the tee and second shots.

I'm aware that it's late in the season and the bunkers are in questionable condition but no on-course washroom facilities was a challenge. Otherwise, the fairways and greens were in very good condition.

The weather was perfect...sun, no wind, mild...incredible. Great day.

Without the deals from Golf Now, Richmond Hill seems a bit overpriced. But no big deal, the course is always in great shape - even in November. Only complaint was that while waiting out a frost delay, I learned that our twosome was the second group of the day - behind a foursome that included a couple of novices. No Marshall on the course, and the group had no intention of waving us through. So we skipped a hole and golfed on. We were probably at home by the time the plodders finished 18.

But still - I heartily recommend this course. A challenge, but not too challenging.

Super course in excellent condition. It's a bit short at about 6000 yards but very challenging with water, rough, trees and doglegs making accuracy very important. It's always in great condition and the friendly staff really do make your day better.

On a business trip and wanted something fun to do. Looked online at GolfNow and booked a time. Pro Shop had everything I needed. Got out on the course in record time and played until dark. Great value and surprisingly good golf course. Play from the back tees and hit thru the trees. Totally enjoyed the layout, but it does favor the right to left player. No bad lies considering the carts don't have sand bottles to fill in divots. We'll worth the chance to play. Just get out there!

The course is fair and gets narrow and far more challenging (and interesting) after the 10th hole. The course is a par 70 and doesn't play very long (6000 yards from the blues). Multiple dogleg holes where a driver is not required, and keeping it straight is a must on several of the back 8 holes where the fairway is narrow off the tee. Greens are pretty flat and nice rolled. Good spot for the money.

A very short course in average condition with a large price tag. Some holes on the back nine feel like they were slotted in for a lack of space. There are many other similar courses in the GTO area which are similar but far cheaper. The fact that they insluded some food, a cart and balls does not justify the price.

they should let the public groups aware that there are big tournaments being played at the same time as public tee times. At some points, we had back up of 3 groups while the tournament players were goofing around on the course, etc.

Thank you for your comments, and our apologies for any miscommunication during your round.

As you know, our pace of play that afternoon was within our standard 4 1/2 hour window. It may not have been as quick as anticipated, however, when we host 1/2 field events our public tee times are made available to ensure the pace of play does not exceed this time period.

With many bookings made online it is difficult to communicate our activity on a given day, but our blocks are put in place to ensure there is no significant delay with pace of play on these particular days. We do completely understand the frustration of a slow round of golf, and put every effort forward to avoid these situations for our golfers.

Sincerely,

RHGC Management

Pretty nice layout, but somewhat short. Good elevation changes and some nice use of water.

The staff was fantastic and very friendly.

The elevation changes mean that it is not an easy walking course. It is walkable, but for an old guy like me, it takes some effort.
