Due to the havoc wreaked on the greens following last fall’s aerification, I had avoided Lone Tree. After reading several, recent, positive reviews, I took a chance - and I’m glad I did. The greens have rebounded very nicely, with only a few traces of the prior damage. They roll true and were reasonably fast. The fairways and tee boxes were in good shape, comparable to most North Bay courses, but nothing outstanding. The layout offers only minimal challenge, as there is no water, no forced carries, few bunkers and only a couple of holes requiring creative shot making. Nonetheless, Lone Tree is a fine place to hone your basic skills.

The range is adequate, but plays into a bit of a ravine, making it a challenge to assess distance and roll. There are two putting greens, both very small and with little dimension. One allows sand shots and chipping/pitching, but it is too small to be very useful in that regard.

The staff gets the job done, with no negativity but also little in the way of warmth and welcome. I played in a twosome behind a group of five with three kids under ten. However, we hardly ever waited, and finished in 4 hours on a 2:00pm Sunday start. The clubhouse has a very nice terrace and a decent menu/bar, well worth a stop after your round. I am glad to add Lone Tree back into my regular playlist.

Good course, good layout.

The pace of play on a Sunday afternoon was good. A twosome got done in 3.5 hours, which was great.

Greens were bumpy and didn't seem to roll true, and there were a few areas of nasty standing water, while others were bone dry...

Overall a good day, will come back for sure

If you don't mind six hour rounds, or a bunch of 5-somes slowing the pace of play down then this is the course for you. There's nothing like putting on a green that has dead spots that look like old fire tracks on it either.

The course has great potential but the up keep is much to be desired; e.g. greens have patches where there is no grass just mud and needs rolling, also fairways need grass cut.

This is my home course been playing here for over 30 years. I know we have had some bad weather but it hasn't rained in a few weeks now and they could have mowed the grass a little more. And a lot of the greens I would say was horrible I thought they would have been in better condition than they were. Just hope they get it under control soon.

First time playing this course. The course was in pretty good shape considering parts of the back nine were flooded about a week and and a half ago, this according to the people I played with. Like most courses the sand traps lack sand, this course was no exception. The fairways were in pretty good shape and the greens, well some were good and some had some problems. It is not a difficult layout but there are some tough holes. It was a fun group to play with and the 19th tee was very good and not that expensive. Will play this course in the future.

Putting greens are not in a good condition, except some holes which were in decent shape. I have been been playing there for years and have not seen any major improvement. Rough was really bad and they cut grass but failed to collect grass therefore loosing the ball was easy.

This course is not worth the amount of money they charge to play especially on weekends
