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.

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.

First time golfing in Canada and it was a good course to start on. Layout is interesting. Somewhat frustrating not being able to hit driver off the tee on a number of par 5's due to hazards awkwardly placed. Course condition was fair for the time of year. Bunkers could do with a bit of work, but the greens were running well. I think I'll give it a second try later in the year.

came all the way from toronto to play only to see frozen snow covering the course, did not even go into the pro shop i was so angry i turned around and went home. Not a call from the course saying there was snow.. funny though, i played a few days prior at 2pm only to get a call from the course asking if i wanted to play earlier, i could come up because the tee sheet was empty. poor customer service not to call about the snow!!!! waist of my time and gas!!!

Waited for the price drop so my rewards points would cover it. Drove an hour to get there but was told it would be worth and it was. Shot an 88 from the whites which was good for me.Surprisingly fairways and ruff were clear of leaves bravo! i’d definitely go back.
