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.

Greens not taken care of

I love this course and have only been able to play it one time this year due to all courses being super busy this year . I feel there is too many inexperienced beginner golfers with poor golf etiquette that are playing these courses meant for players that understand playing a nicer course means you need to fix your divots and ball marks so the players behind you can have a good experience there especially when paying almost $120 including cart taxes and range balls . When you need to fix 4-5 ball marks at almost every green just to attempt as a putt is not something expected when playing a place like this ! It’s unfortunate that these type of players are ruining what should be a great golf experience for seasoned golfers who take pride and fixing whatever minor damages are caused for the players behind them... I hope for this course and many others I’ve seen that happen to more awareness is shown to players who don’t care or may not even know they need to at the very least fix their ball marks and keep greens in good shape !

Fall Foliage at St Andrews GC

Last minute Golfnow deal so here I am playing St. Andrews on a windy wet day. The staff are very friendly and even allowed me to tee off earlier. The course is in very good condition (shame people don't replace their divots on the fairway). Team up with two good players so I was struggling to keep pace. I did pick up a birdie, a few pars and overall had a great time playing one of my favourite courses in GTA. Well done. St Andrews.

Good overall, but hosed on practice balls

Course was good overall. First impression is really good. Putting green is nice and you get the feeling right away that you are at a nicer (almost private feeling) course. Layout was good and conditions were fine. Lots of undulation in the greens which were a little on the slow side. Maybe a little too severe for most players? They were ok, but I didn't love them.

I got a last minute deal on golf now, but for the regular rate of $89 I was pretty surprised when I walked down to the practice range and was told I had to pay $8 for balls (back up at the clubhouse). I know that is not unusual, but there are some courses near by that offer free practice range balls for similar or even cheaper green fees. In my opinion, this is just one of the many things that make those courses better.

Need your A game

Tough test but plenty of tees to choose from to suit your game. You need to keep it straight and choose the right landing area for your shots, as water comes into play regularly. May not be worth the full-price $89 green fee imho, but the discounted $59 price I got online was well worth it for the quality of the course compared to others in the area.
