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.

Good Value - Nice Greens; Quirky Holes

So far these are some of the best greens i have played in Toronto in terms of consistency, look, feel. They weren't overly fast but they appeared well maintained and rolled fairly true.
Staff was friendly and accommodating.
A few holes had some quirky features with odd forced carries and for the first time around it wasn't obvious where the best place to play to was. Otherwise a fun course.

Worth Playing Once

Good technical course worth playing once.
I definitely recommend trying to find a deal to play the course but I would recommend trying to get out there and play St. Andrew's.
Beautiful scenery and the course was maintained. The staff was friendly and they had all the amenities.

Beautiful course

Always been one of my favourites. Doesn't look like anyone repairs divots on the greens....what a shame !!
After a twelve year hiatus I find its a little overpriced, I'm not complaining, just saying.

Amazing Day!!!

Right from the start with our interactions with the friendly Pro Shop staff and the starter already made it a great day!!! The course conditions were perfect as well as the weather!!
It was a very interesting and challenging lay-out although there were some confusing spots especially on 9 I think.
The only issue we had as a group was the annoying and inappropriate play of the group behind us. According to the course clocks we were actually ahead of the pace of play but they kept hitting into our group.
Other than that I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking for excellent service, amenities, and an interesting track!

Nice course, challenging holes

St Andrews is a really good track to play. It is an older course that has mature trees and tight fairways.
The greens are still not in the best shape and are still recovering from the harsh winter
Otherwise, the course is well maintain

St Andrews Valley

Booked through this site. Greeted by wonderful staff; Quick process and in the cart ready to go in 5 minutes.1st full round of the season, We were paired up with a lovely couple and we had a beautiful day. We teed off AT 11:30AM on Monday. We were finished by 3:30pm . There are a couple of crazy hole layouts, actually a little ridicules. Especially hole 9 - for one example. But overall the course is terrific. Check in staff was attentive as were the cart girls with drinks etc. I think for $80/round including cart it was a fabulous deal. Great time - great day.

Nice course, rough greens

Course fairways are nice and lush, however numerous greens are struggling. As much as you could blame the weather this year, I’ve played a number of lower end courses with excellent greens.

I’d like to play this course again in the fall when the greens have improved and are rolling well.
