Good Course for the money when booking through Golf Now. Overall the course is in good shape, lot's of dog legs. Nice and quite as the course is nestled into the trees... accurate drives are a must.

The hills and terrain make for beautiful scenery but some holes are too challenging for average golfers. Some of the holes are tricked up. Many holes have small elevated greens with large bunkers guarding it. Course condition was perfect...soft lush fairways and perfect greens. Putts rolled very smoothly. It would difficult to walk 18 holes for me. Staff was very friendly. Great value for the price paid. Would like to play in the fall to see the beautiful colours.

I'd be willing to bet that with a few more visits, you'd find the design challenges here add to the appeal. It can be a little daunting for the first -timers, but for so many players, the place gets under their skin.

Thanks for your comments.

Pace of play is a never ending battle for many popular courses. Fortunately, with 27 holes, we can often find a way around traffic jams, but sometimes those 5 hour rounds happen. I'd suggest trying to visit in quieter times of the week, but know that is also a challenge for many people.

The course was in good shape. I went as a single, and although I waited at most holes, I was able to practice shots and also take two shots on occasion. The pace seemed slow, with the waiting, but in fact I finished in about 3 hours 25 minutes. I had a hot deal, so it was very inexpensive ($48.01 including all taxes and fees, and included a cart). Very good value for the price I paid.

This course is much too tight is spots- we've spent a lot of time working on widening out those landing areas, but there is more to do.

Its great to breeze through a game as a single and I'm sure it felt like a lot of waiting when other players are on the course, but really, 3 hours, 25 minutes isn't too bad. Some of my favourite times on the course are when I get out near the end of day, maybe after a rain shower, when the place is deserted and I get to feel like the only one there!

Condition of the course is great, but greens painfully slow. Might have been that they grew 1/4" in a day though as it was the first hot and humid day.in a while. I will play this course often and hope to do better..

The course was in great shape. The greens were a little slow but rolled nice. But that's probably because of time of year. My only peevs. Were I had purposely booked a time that only had 2 pots available as I was playing as a single. But the starter decided that he would send the 2-some out without me. So I had to play alone. His suggestion was I play quickly and maybe I can catch up and join the 2 in front of me. Thanks. But that idea was denied when the 4 some in front of them let them play through. So I played 2 balls and eventually another single caught up to me on the back 9 and I finished my round with him. And my second peev was the kitchen being closed when I made the turn. It was only 4pm when I made the turn. And I was hungry. Oh well. Still a nice course. I will probably play there again. Just won't be in a hurry to play there alone again.

Hello J.

Thanks for the feedback- I'm sorry you had to play alone. Our Starters can require groups to accept additional players, but its a little hard to force when the course is not busy, like in April. Early season also requires F&B management to make decisions like closing service if traffic is very light. You should have been able to access some light snacks and beverages through the proshop counter- I'll check to see whether that was made available to you. Regular cafe hours start May 1st and are posted to avoid disappointment. Full services will be under way when you come out next!

Playing at Pheasant run is one of the most stunning and enjoyable rounds of golf you'll play. Elevation changes and undulated greens that are both challenging and fair. From a risk reward standpoint. It's my own personal favourite.

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!
