We were greeted warmly in the ProShop by Ryan who said he would get us teed off earlier than our scheduled time as we had arrived early. That was greatly appreciated!! The course is in great shape and the mature trees and view of the river is a delight to the eye.<br/> Pace of play was good and we played in under 4.5 hours. We were sorry to hear that they are no longer going to be on GolfNow.

The course is in beautiful shape, a couple of the greens had winter kill but the pin positions were set so this did not affect putting.

Nice layout and a good challenge.<br/> Nice new restaurant with excellent food and service.

Brand new gas powered carts.

Course in average condition.

Overall layout is good and some challenging holes.

Biggest issue is pace of play. Weekends very slow (6 hour s for 18 holes). Generally plays slow regardless. Instead of having groups join up in 4 golfers, I saw may golfers go out with only 2 golfers. Slows the pace of play.

Facilities being renovated.

The back nine is now the front nine so the GPS was confusing as the signs were not changed yet. The pace was slow due to golfers starting at the wrong nine. This should have been looked after by a Marshall. I am sure this will be rectified when the course is busier. Would definitely play again

I was so impressed by the greens conditions of the course! Great service and excellent weather! The changing of the hole numbers to begin the round on the back nine and finish with the front is a good idea! I even got to see a bunch of turkeys! (actual animal ones!)<br/> Overall good experience!

We played the Armprior course 4 or 5 years ago and were not impressed at that time. Over the past 5 years the course has been groomed and improved to the point it is a gem in the Ottawa Valley. We will definitely play more rounds here in the coming years, and would recommend that golfers in the Ottawa Valley experience the beautifull views the Armprior course offers of the Ottawa River.

Arnprior's Sand point golf course is a beautiful setting to play golf in. The facilities, equipment, and the care taken by the grounds keeping staff are high quality. The twilight pace of play is, however, in need of greater speed and/or marshalling. Despite getting our round for a discounted rate, golfers expect to be able to complete holes in a reasonable amount of time.
