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.

Great layout, very playable, but can be very challenging for the weekend golfer. Greens could’ve been quicker for my taste
Overall, had a good day !!

Nice course but pricy

I found the course to be challenging, and in reasonably good shape, but not $100. I have played courses this year and close by for much less and they offer as good or better challenges and conditions.

Nice course to play, but I'll wait for a deal next time.

Lovely course St Andrews GC

The forecasted thunderstorm didn't materialize but it drove many golfers away so I ended up playing solo on an almost empty course! The course conditions were perfect; lust fairways, undulating greens, and punishing roughs. I found many lost balls; no need to buy any more for rest of year! Would definitely come back to play this awesome course.

Covid round

The course was in good condition considering the drought for the last 2 weeks. Staff members were all very friendly and accommodating. Pace of play was decent 4 hours 20 minutes, due to 2 groups ahead of us. Course layout is "target golf, outward 9 par 5's don't require/allow for driver, in fact Driver was used only twice on #7 and #10 due to head wind. If you like target golf and testing your course management, then this is your cup of joe.

Course Marshall bulley

This was our second time playing only making it 9 holes the first time out. They were nice enough to give is a rain check for the other 9

Once there we were asked to wait to tee off until the other group was on the green so naturally we waited which meant we started abut 5-10 later than our tee time. By the end of the second hole the Marshall was telling us we were playing to slow except we were waiting for the group in front. My wife isn’t a great golfer and she felt that he was watching her so she picked up her ball

I noticed he doesn’t no time talking to the group in front about slow play. Must have been members. We won’t be playing there again anytime soon. We play a lot of golf and there are lots of clubs all over that have much friendlier staff.
