I like to think we offer about the best value anywhere, anytime of the year. The spring has some great pricing, for sure, but the summer is when the experience here really shines.

Please come back as everything comes to life here later on this season.

The frost can really delay your start this time of year. Luckily 27 holes allows us to use double tees once it clears. Usually we can get everybody back on schedule with little interruption, but it might be a good idea to check with the course if you think frost could be out there.

I played first time this course.

They didn't have any course information we only used mile stones.

Fairways are so narrow and some sloppy I lost many balls. The golfers need accurate their shots.

The fairway's condition is good.

Hello Sheriya,

This place can be treacherous to the uninitiated! Thanks for checking us out for the first time. I think you'll find the course will be more rewarding after you've been out a few times. Certainly, its not a course you can take for granted!

we wanted to book another course nearby and lost the chance Found Pheasant Run and booked it....not expecting much....wow what a great club.....just North of Toronto we expected a flat layout...what we got was a mountain like layout with numerous elevation changes and tree lined to the point that looking down the fairways you feel like you better walk single file...Many holes are tricky so playing it safe can be beneficial. Hole 5 Highlands you look down to 2 ponds on both sides of 150 yd marker...then the fairway goes up hill to green....take driver and go across pond...there are flat spots to give you level lie...Greens were slick and undulating...had a few tough pin placements where ball rolled off after the hole...Staff were very accommodating...food excellent on the patio. A great day

Hello Picky,

It makes my day to read your comments. We've got some fantastic holes here, but I start to take it for granted and it sometimes takes a review like yours to make me sit up and see it with fresh eyes. My only regret is that you didn't know about us before this- we've been here for over 35 years and aren't about to go anywhere, anytime soon. I hope we get you back to see us next time you're in the area!

Hey, Joe....

We have been battling crabgrass for the past 4 or 5 years. It has felt like an invasion! Most courses in our area have noticed a huge upswing recently. We treat for it every year, but its very costly just to keep it out of our fairways and tees. Luckily, its at its worst for only a few weeks (right about now!) - then,as an annual weed, it dies off. We'll do our best to keep it out of the main play areas- you do your best to keep your ball on the fairway!

First 9 holes were amazing. The course is in great shape, super peaceful, everything is so green with some picturesque views. The second 9, still beautiful but we were stuck behind a foursome that apparently had no clue what pace of play means. I should have known what we were in for when we spotted the one "golfer" In a fluorescent tshirt that would make WHAM proud.

No matter, very nice course, give it a try.

Hello David,

Sounds like overall a good experience except for some other players. We've stepped up marshalling this year to try to keep things moving as they should, but with 27 holes, sometimes they aren't always where they can be the most help. If it happens to you again, please call the proshop- we'll dispatch someone immediately to your exact spot to help smooth out the pace.

You're right, those opening holes are all tough. At least you get to cruise in to the turn on a few easier '9's' - except, of course, Midlands #9. My Men's Night partner cringes whenever we have to finish on that hole!

Have not played here in several years as I felt it was overpriced and the staff was not that pleasant. Decided to give it another try with the Golfnow rate.

The course was in great shape. Very green which is admirable give how dry it gas been. we teed off on time at 8:20 and we had a 3hr 15 min. round. INCREDIBLE. !!!! My only comment, made a the clubhouse is that they didn't have rakes at several bunkers and few on others. They need to spend big and get another 30 rakes.

Thanks for giving us another try! I've got to say, we've seen some real changes here the past few years - I'm glad you noticed the improvements. I'll take your rake observation under advisement, but personally, I'd like to see more bunkers sodded over!

Started off our round with some complementary range balls. Once we were warmed up, we headed to the first tee, where the starting marshall offered us some cold water bottles. The course was in exceptional condition, with surprisingly green fairways. The best kept course that I've seen all summer. However, the rough hadn't been cut in a while and it was very thick. Not sure if it was by design or just hadn't been done in a while. Some of hole layouts are beautiful with elevated tee offs, while a few other holes have slanted fairways with large drop offs, which can be somewhat frustrating. Unfortunately, a crazy rain storm hit us mid round and we only got to see half of the course. I will be back again to this beautiful course to get a full round in, once a more reasonable price pops up.

Very challenging course with demanding and precise tee shots. The greens were very well kept, fast, yet very receptive to approach shots. It is a very beautiful and scenic layout.
