Dried out !

Course was very dried out in a lot of places. Greens were good but fairways very dry and hard. $40 cart fees way too much for this course. The new Covid fee's a guess ?

Enjoyable

Played on a hot day in July during COVID times. Staff were very friendly. Price at $60 for a weekday (with power cart) is high for this country course. Greens are HUGE so pay attention to where the flag is placed or you’ll 3 putt all day long. Greens were in OK shape considering the very dry conditions. Rough is outrageous, but it is everywhere during COVID times. T boxes and fairways just OK. Good variety of holes across three sets of 9. Many fairways wide and forgiving. Course is walkable but get a power cart on hot days. Worth checking out!

A solid course

Ariss Valley is a solid course. Plenty of variety in the 3 nines. Par is always in the conversation on any given hole along with double bogey (or worse). Things are a little baked right now but so is everywhere.
Passing along free bottles of water (at the clubhouse) was a nice touch in this heat. Came in handy.

Lost a fan

Well it was a hot day in July and I am a fan of Ariss length and challenge. So I went to one of my favourite tracks around Guelph. Unfortunately, I found the course to be a let down! It seems poorly managed as the greens are not taken care of and even some have weeds growing on a few edges! Burnt fairways and rough greens, then add workers around the course not respecting golfers hitting off the tees, made for a mediocre round. No-one fixing divots (except me) that were all over the greens and even right beside the pin affecting a number of putts. Sad! Well we hope the rain comes in to make this little stone a jewel again but them won't be seeing my money any time soon.

Decent, not special

It’s a decent course, but when you add up the issues it leaves you with a good, not great feeling. The fairways are cut way too long and are “furry”. Middle of this heat wave balls should roll when landed in the fairway and here you get a couple yards and done. Slow round for a 7:30am t-off when your back 9 is held up by groups placed in front.

Great course as it's design allows any level of golfer to have a good time. The staff was very professional and reminded everyone to wear a mask due to Covid.

Another farmer who thinks he can build and maintain a golf course

There's four strains of grass fighting it out on the fairways, which need to be cut badly. Even in the middle of the fairway, you are unlikely to have a lie that allows clean contact on the ball.

Most annoying thing is the starter, who would not tell us which nines we were playing until it was time to go there. No way to chip and put while you are waiting as you'd have to walk 200 yards back to the start and then to your tee and there's no time for that. Also, can't set your GPS app up as he won't tell you your second nine until you turn. I mean, it's a morning tee time, you have your tee sheet. Who's going off what nines should be planned out, not based on some idiot looking to see what tee is open.

Never playing again.
