Some like it tough, and for them there is St. Andrew's. This immaculate course is as beautiful as it is challenging, with water coming into play on 14 holes, and wickedly undulating greens. Called "One of the five best public courses in Ontario" by Score magazine - and simply "Canada's toughest golf course by others - St. Andrew's prides itself on being a real player's course, designed and managed by avid golfers.

Really nice track and great upkeep. Greens ran true and you could be aggressive with your approach shots. Nice range of tees to accommodate all different types of skills and it allowed me to use a nice mix of driver, 3W and irons off the tees.

Price was a little expensive for the round, but overall I would definitely recommend and I will definitely play it again.

This was the first time I played here and from the time I got out of my car in the parking lot, I was greeted by friendly staff and players. Everyone was so nice. The pro shop staff, the starter, marshall, and all the maintenance staff are absolutely fabulous. Not once did anyone pass by and not wave or say good morning or good afternoon. We played with a couple of members and they too were extremely friendly and very helpful providing guidance about the course. The food was great and the beer was cold. I look forward to playing here again.

I obtained a tee time as a single and joined a group of nice people to play with. The tee time was right on schedule and the staff was able to get me in the tee even though I showed up just in time. The round played at a perfect pace of 4:15. The course was in excellent shape; fast true greens, well maintained fairways and sand traps.

Played this course 6 times since Sept 2017. The layout is fabulous, long enough with the ability to score well from the tips if you hit fairways. Considering the amount of play it gets the fairway's/tee boxes are mint. The greens roll true probably at a 9-10. Every hole is different nothing feels "make shift" . Pricing after 3pm is a steal. Starter's are awesome and will let you go early if they can. Proshop girls are friendly and always smiling.

Weather was ideal , the staff were extremely courteous and obliging . Really appreciated the course marshall allowing us to go off cart path for one of our less mobile players , despite Spring conditions. Course was in great shape , despite tough , long winter. Definitely will play it again.
