We went off as a twosome which meant we waited a couple of minutes on each hole but that is to be expected. The course was in incredible condition especially when considering all the rain we've had this Spring. There was only one fairway where it was even remotely wet/muddy. The staff at eQuinelle were fantastic as always. My only wish (and this is my own fault for not eating before arriving) is that they served breakfast. Great course and I'll be back many times this Summer.

Although, the Ottawa area has been deluged with what is known now as the 100 year flood .... many have lost homes ! It was cart paths only.... no accumulation on Fairways but moist & lush.

Three divots taken, no excessive moisture divots damp only, reason for Cart paths only !

This course is always in excellent condition. The greens are fast and fairways are cut fairly close. No real elevation changes, but there is good use of water and sand traps. Some of the holes have houses a bit close, which is unfortunate. The new clubhouse is really beautiful and the food is very good, although not cheap.

Had two foursomes in front of us playing a two man scramble money game. They walked slow, played slow Their entire demeanour was slow. They saw us waiting and made no offer to let us play through. No Marshall on the course even though there were two gentlemen at the Starter's booth. We finally asked the Cart Girl to send a Marshal out but it was too late to accomplish anything when he showed up. Great course but needs some attention to details.
