Excellent Condition

The course was in really nice condition. The grass in the fairways make the ball sit up like a mat at the driving range. Bunkers and greens were in great shape as well.

Great conditions, Way too slow

Course was in great shape but the pace of play on the back nine was brutal. We had to quit after 14 because it was just too slow. I really would have liked to finish but it would have taken 5 1/2 hours.

Love playing here

Nice powder sand in bunkers. Rough not high and playable. Tee boxes and greens in decent shape. Very happy with the course for winter conditions.

Better than expected

It’s been at least 10 years since my last round here. Back then, it was beginning to get somewhat rough. They have done a pretty good job, at least this year, of maintaining the course. I will probably play here again this year.

Returning Player

The remake of the bunkers were well done. They actually look and feel like real bunkers and not dried out mud holes. The course is in absolutely the best condition I've ever seen in my 13yrs of playing it. Great job guys.

Terrible Tee Shot Location Move

The first hole flag was moved up on the fairway without any prior notice and every par 3 hole got shortened significantly to about 100 yard from about 200. This is a huge disappointment and I really regret playing there for $42. I will never go there again. Period!!!!.

We apologize your experience was not a great one. In order to protect the greens and tee boxes for Spring we sometimes make slight modifications to the setup. Our current reduced Winter rates are designed to take those changes into account. We would like to have you come back again when we are in prime season so please reach out to the golf course manager if you would like to do so.

Pace of Play Issues

Arrived at 1:15 for a 1:27 tee time, but my tee time was already given away to a foursome.The starter said that they were ahead of schedule and then slotted me in at 1:45.

Front 9 ended up taking over 3 hours to finish. Two of the players ahead of us were extremely slow and didn't seem as if the roaming course ranger did anything to get them to speed up. Luckily they only played the 9 holes.

Only reason I was able to finish was that 2 groups ahead of us had to leave. Even then, after pairing up with some others who had gotten stuck we barely managed to finish.

I get that it was a holiday, but taking over 3 hours to finish 9 holes is still unacceptable.

Greens are in great condition

Algonkinian is a basic public course that tends to be towards the west side. Was in surprising good shape on Columbus Day and the greens were great. They were relatively smooth and ran true.
Altogether it was a very good round of golf and better than most courses in the area.
