Apart from very slow threesome ahead of us, very enjoyable golf on well maintained course.

Regular rates expensive, but try to get deal.

Why do bad golfers play from white tees?

Course is still in amazing shape. Especially considering the extreme heat and how dry it’s been.

The staff continues to be exceptionally friendly.

The layout is awesome. It creates a challenge but also allows less talented golfers, like myself, to enjoy the game.

Fairways are soft to walk on and the greens are well kept and fast.

A long drive from Centretown, but worth the drive.

Greens were sandy and bumpy because they had been punched a week or so ago.

Getting pricey unless you can get a deal.

Hard to believe that 2 days into Sept. a golf course has already done their aerating and top dressing, but that's what Equinelle did. That was quite disappointing. I think I left a few putts out there because of all the holes in the green. And Like so many other courses, I don't know why they have marshal's (player assistants?) because they don't appear to do anything with slow play. Other than that, I felt the course was in great shape and I would play it again... just not in Sept.

We picked this course (from several reviews) as one of two to play on our vacation to Ottawa (from the US), plus the chance to use the automated Golf Skate Caddy. When we got there, we were told the Skate Caddies were already booked for the day (we didn''t get that impression from the website), so we had to take a cart. We would have walked, but we were renting clubs and the bags were an unknown. Speaking of which, I had an interesting set of Nikes -- three pitching wedges (two the same, one left handed), no sand wedge, and an additional Wilson sand wedge). The course is fun to play, with a few good risk/reward holes. It partially winds through a housing development, so you'll probably hear some construction going on. We were really disappointed with not being able to use the skate caddies. Even though we were told they were booked for the day (how many are there? 8?), we never saw them out on the course. The price was certainly reasonable for the course, and my wife really enjoyed it as there were no forced carries (requiring lay-ups). A fun day, but see if you can reserve the skate caddies ahead of time if you go.

Hi, David. Hi, Robert. Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing that you were not able to rent a skate caddie during your visit. With the popularity of them, they are almost always the first to be booked. We are glad to see you rated everything else to be great during your game. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing eQuinelle Golf Club, we hope to see you again soon.
