A great course for both casual and intermediate players.

This is my home course so I play it very often so it is a very repayable course. This course has declined in overall quality over the last few years but is still fun and playable. The course is not too difficult and features plenty of water and bunkers but they are usually not too big of a threat. The highlight hole is probably the 18th's island green. Don't come and expect to get a premium golf experience but if you are in the area looking for a casual round it is a good option.

Great track; poorly maintained.

I had high hopes for this course and the price was right at $29. It's a very well designed course and easy to walk. About half the holes have some kind of dog leg and there's lots of water. It's challenging, but fair, or at least it would be if it was properly maintained. It really sucks to make a few nice shots and have an opportunity for a birdie or par and then be punished by lousy greens and traps that are water hazards. Most courses are in fine shape due to the shut down. Not in this case. They obviously haven't been taking advantage of the shut down to maintain this course. Greens had lots of brown spots and dirt showing and weeds. Fairways had weeds and lots of clover. Bunkers had very hard sand that you usually only find in windy areas like eastern WA. They obviously cheaped out on that too. Several traps around greens had turned into ponds because of poor drainage. Traps shouldn't also be a water hazard. This course just looks like a real estate play to me.. The developer made his dough on selling the homes and condos and must feel he has a captive audience so doesn't spend the money to maintain a very beautiful course. What a disappointment...

A Diamond in the Rough

10 Minutes across the Aldergrove Border, Homestead farms is a quick trip for Canadians south. What a great course. No gimmicks. Fair amount of water, but if you have a scorecard App you should be fine for distances to water.

Rewarded if you hit fairways. Long par4's were challenging but fair.

The pace of play was fantastic. No waiting for the group ahead, and the group behind us didn't wait at all.

Greens were good. Very good for a public course.

Would play again. Planning another day trip as we speak.

Practice Area complete and in good shape
Fairways, Greens and Tee Boxes in very good condition
Prices make this a must play
Staff are Top notch

I would highly recommend it to anyone at any level but could prove too much to high handicappers

not good

This is one of my go to courses but I haven't played there in winter (ie rainy)
conditions for awhile. I can only give the course three stars and that's only because of the layout and my past favourable experiences, But I can't recommend that anybody play there right now. We spent all day looking for plugged balls in the fairway and lost balls in the uncut rough.On the good side, the greens and fringe areas were in great shape. I'll be back in the Spring weather permitting.

Nice Course.

Very nice course with a nice layout. It was a cool day so not many golfers.This was our first rime playing here. There is a fair amount of water so we lost a number of balls. Should have payed closer attention to the course layout book we were given.. Course was in very good shape. Staff was friendly. Thank you.

Pretty, but challenging

This was our second play here and found the hidden water to be a challenge. Greens had lots of unrepaired ball marks and fairways undulating with lots of roll towards the water. We payed 14 holes with no one in our site for more than 4-5 holes. When we teed off on 14 we started to notice 2 groups of walkers and we proceeded to wait every hole until the end. Not sure where they came from. We tried to call the pro shop and no one answered at 5:00. It appears they just walked on the back nine.

Beautiful and Challenging

This course in well maintained and has a very challenging layout, making use of the natural wetlands in the area. I thought the water was somewhat overdone and a little oppressive at times. It dictates placement of your second shot on almost every hole, and often isn't visable when taking your second shot. Since there isn't a diagram of the course on the score card, purchasing a yardage book is a must. Asthically, the number of homes and their proximity to the course was a negative.

Great Course

Homestead is a great course! We are amazed that there isn't more people playing this course as it's a real gem!! The bunkers do need some work...more sand is needed. We look forward to our next round at Homestead.

Empty parking lot

Parking lot should have given me a heads up. I used to practise putting and chipping here while my wife was at the casino 2 years ago. Practise green was in bad shape then and now the whole course has caught up. Just deplorable condition. You can only stroke a putt and hope it stays on line. Not too likely. Fairways in great shape, probably because nobody plays here. Got around in 3.5 hours.

Great Day

Enjoyed the course immensely. Par 4s are challenging at 360-380 yards, fun layout. Water seems to sneak in on you at times, but very fun. Greens are in good shape for smooth putting. Fairways were nice and in good shape. Nice challenge and very fun day. Came in from Seattle and will come back.

Overall experience

We were charged more than the booking price. It took 5 hours to play. There was no Marshall to assist in the pace of play. It would be hard for me to return.
