Nice wide fairways help keep the speed of play up. Greens were a little slow but it was later in the day. No serious trouble to cause hold ups.

Some great deals through GolfNow for short notice tee times.

Staff is great.

It is a bit of a trek to the practice range but free carts are available.

The course is not in very good shape due to flooding in the past. A good deal of effort has been made to correct some of the situation. A bit over priced.

The course was ok. We enjoyed the back nine more then the front, or was the back nine the front? The scorecard we had to go looking for was backwards. More signage and hazard tips would be nice.<br/> The greens were awful and kept us from bothering with the score so it was not really worth the drive from Calgary. I understand the green were just aerated but we didn't know that until we were there. Before booking a warning would have been appreciated or at least a free cart rental or voucher of some sort.

Theflood changed the layout . The greens are fine but the overall layout and condition, it's,going to take a while for it to mature. I would play it again if it cost $30., otherwise lots of other choices

They are replacing the sod on the 4th hole of MountainView 9. This has made them play it as a par 3 to a temp green and also cause the 2nd hole to play from temp telex (as par 3).

Otherwise course and greens are in nice shape.

I hear tell that they plan to reopen some of the holes lost in 2013 floods soon.

Considering the devastation of the June 2013 floods the course is in really good shape. A few areas are a bit rough but really don't affect the quality of play. The Heritage 9 runs along the Highwood River for a few holes and through mature Cottonwoods making for a scenic experience. The Mountainview 9 pretty much runs through a housing development that was well thought out and plays nicely. The only negative was the indifference of the Pro Shop staff when I asked to use a demo driver. No explanation of the club and how the adjustments might have helped/hindered my game. I requested a specific flex and that was all I got. I was ready to buy but not without some information on the club - oh well.
