I have been coming up to Kemptville for a family reunion every August long weekend for past ten years. I have always wanted to play this course and got to do so for the first time. I was not disappointed, what a gem of a course this is! Absolutely loved it, in fabulous condition, well put together. I can't wait to come back next year and play it again

This was the first time I have played at eQuinelle. I had heard many excellent comments about it from golf friends so the bar was set quite high. The course did not disappoint! It is a beautiful course to look at and to play. The fairways are in great condition and the greens are fast and smooth! Each hole has many traps that are all large and deep but when you are on the tee box looking out over the hole, the traps are beautiful and well placed. Lots of water and new homes being built. There is a lot of pride shown everywhere on this course. It was a real treat to play this course! Loved it and can't wait to go back!

Great layout, challenging right from the first hole with the tee shot over water however the challenges are realistic and are not set up to defeat the golfer. There are rewards for good shots, however, poorer drives can be recovered from.

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.
