Don’t bother going here. Played with a buddy and this course is aweful. The price point is fine but it’s not even worth that. They had a weird new rule that if you landed in the bunker you needed to remove your ball, rake where your ball was then place your ball back on the sand, hit the shot, then rake again. Not sure why. Played the east and it was super cramped. There was maybe two holes that were like a normal course other than that the rest were terrible. What you’d expect at a 9 hole or a crappy beginner course. I heard great things about this place and it’s just not worth it. The tee boxes were hard. The grass was in rough shape. Spend a couple more and go anywhere else. The only good thing I can say was the pace was fine.

I found the course to be very mature and somewhat challenging. At times some of the other fairways were too close together and we had to wait for other golfers to move off our course so we could tee off.

They deserve credit for the quality of the conditions, considering the volume of traffic they receive. But once again the pace of play is abysmal. 5.5hrs for 18 is terrible. I can't imagine I will ever go back.

We were booked in for a 6:00 pm tee off. Unfortunately​ there was a huge tournament that was late at starting. We asked for a raincheck as we were told it could be another hour before we'd get out. Pro shop said they wouldn't raincheck golfnow reservations. We we finally got out at 7:29 pm. We were shot gunned from the 9th hole and with only an hour our daylight left it was no where near enough time to finish 9 holes let alone our 18 we paid for. The courses layout was super confusing and we ended up getting lost multiple times. As it stands we only golfed 8 holes then darkness set in...sigh. I understand situations happen beyond the courses control but come on guys, be fair. I lived up to my end of the deal, you should have done the same.

A Gem in the western part of the city , visually pleasing ,peaceful, make you think golf course, always well manicured tee to green ........... with several fairways requiring target preferred shots! Our most recent visit ( actually yesterday) due to weather there we few people and a few occasional sprinkles which added to the intensity of the pin placement on several putting surfaces rolling true and well, and on the 17th green .... Bravo and challenging !

This course tests your resolve and makes you choose between risk and reward. A few short par 4's that are almost within reach for those long ball hitters but the fairways are narrow making your need for accuracy to be paramount. Course was in excellent shape.

I play this course about 8-10 times per year including tournament play - I'm a 15 handicap. The course is always well maintained and offers a hole-by-hole, but fair challenge. Staff are pleasant. Marshalls do a good job of 'a 'friendly drive-by', just to make sure people are keeping pace, as it tends to be a popular, therefore busy course. There is no return to the clubhouse after 9 but typically a beverage cart makes regular rounds and there are 4 or 5 go-huts along the course. One of my favourite public courses in the Ottawa area.

Paid the afternoon rate and felt it was good value. Course was in great shape, however, it was super busy so pace of play was a bit slow for my taste but not unbearable. Staff were helpful and pleasant. Would recommend to others and would play again.

Golf now or the course double booked our tee time and we were asked to play the east course. The pace of play was incredibly slow because everyone was backed up behind a tournament. The course should not advertise available tee times when there is a tournament booked. Unfortunate because the course was in good shape.

My wife and I booked this course through Golf Now. The course is a bit out of the way from downtown Ottawa (about 30-45 minutes depending on the traffic). We were able to get out about 45 mins earlier thanks to the starter. The course was in fantastic shape...greens were best I've played...lush, receptive and rolling true. However, playing this course for the first time was tricky....3 or four "quirky holes" lots of 90 degree doglegs. My golf buddy GPS was off by 10-15 yards which resulted in a lot of mis-clubbing (mostly over clubbing). other than that no complaints...shot 83 from Orange but should have been around 76...4 three putts hurt. A few greens have some really tough undulation. I'm sure after playing here again I could shave 6-5 strokes off easily. Not a very long course...only hit driver 5 times.

Good/ great course. Great layout, fairways are mint. Greens are very inconsistent, appears that some are rolled and others aren't. Rough has some patches which provided horrible lies. Overall I was impressed upon arrival when looking at the clubhouse and practice area. Then quickly became frustrated by the 4th green. I would recommend this course but I won't go back til next year. Hopefully it will be in better shape.
