Course was challenging with lots of bunkers and wind. Course was in good condition, although course facilities could be updated and in working order. Would definitely play it again from different tees.

The course was in good shape, aside from many bunkers that were not tended to. The three of us stopped into the grille at the turn to get hot dogs. We waited at the counter for at least 10 minutes, and the one lady working there never even acknowledged us, didn't day "hi", or I'll be with you in a minute. She even went into the kitchen several times (still not saying a word). When she unhooked a pony keg from under the bar and headed back to the kitchen, we gave up and left.

Come with your range finder because the course is not marked on distances. Since TPC left this course, it would be impossible to upkeep it the way it once was. Talking 100 bunkers. Because it was built for the pros, the distances need to be changed on the scorecard. Recreational golfers cant play the blues. Too long. They need a mixed tee scorecard for handicap 10-20 players. Whites are too short and blues too long. I played twilight rate so, I cant complain. It is definitely not the course it once was.

I enjoyed the course, which was in reasonable shape, although I thought the greens were excellent. But I suffered from a lack of yardage markers, which were actually on the course but had no numbers. Simple 200, 150 and 100 stakes would have gone a long way. Also, they need some direction signs - we actually played 1-9 followed by 1 & 8 before we realized our error. But good overall experience.

First -the staff was very helpful and friendly

Second- the course is severely mislabeled- hole markers at tee boxes were mislabeled several times ( they never changed several tee box markers when they changed front and back nines )- several times I went the wrong way due to lack of directions

Third-there was very few yardage markers (are you 150 or 200 yards out) in the fairways

Fourth- I don"t mind bunkers but when 3/4 of them are black with vegetation growing in them it's frustrating

Five- Never played a course when last call on beverage cart was 12:45 PM {also the vending machine on back nine at my money)

Hadn't played this course in awhile and was greatly impressed with the improved conditions of the teeboxes and fairways. Greens were also really nice (despite people not fixing ball marks). My only suggestion is to put out more rakes for the bunkers.

Clublink is letting this former gem deteriorate into a sorry mess. Their only possible motive has to be redevelopment into homes. Nothing else explains the complete lack of basic upkeep on a former TPC course. Please Clublink, sell this course to someone who truly cares for the game. (as well as Eagle Trace and your other SOFLO assets) Keep your business in Toronto.

Hi Obkev222.

Thank you for taking the time to review. We apologize for not being able to fully execute our yardage markers in time for your visit. We lost our GPS (unplanned) and are working to get alternative method for golfers to gage their distances. We will have the corrected in the coming week. We hope you'll re-visit us at that time.
