Beautiful views but too many blind shots

Beautiful scenery but one too many blind shots. Course was in good shape greens were nice but the clubhouse was seriously lacking. One would think that when you spend millions building a golf course you might have some kind of clubhouse other than an old home convert. Staff was very friendly and service excellent. All and all we had a very nice day golfing.

Friendly Gem of a Course

My enjoyable experience @ Settlers Ghost started with a friendly visit to the starter, who happily, and professionally, got everyone on their way.( despite the pressures of a company tournament also occurring that day !!!
I noticed the demographic of the golfers...sons taking their Moms, Dads ( old & young sharing a day out.with family/friends....I never saw one disgruntled group due to the friendliness, pace of play, well maintained course, and the very fair price of this gem of a course ( try finding that at Glen Abbey on a Saturday ...lol!!!).Everyonei I talked to seemed to play there regularly, and lent helpful advice to this Ghost newbie. ..and at the end of the round, the young man at the pro shop ran out to the parking lot to return my phone I had left in the cart...awesome service !!!!
The course was challenging, well laid out ( easy to find the next hole), and I definitely cant wait to golf at this professionally run, but also home town charming gem of a course...thank you Settlers Ghost...it was definitely worth the long journey !!!!

Favourite course in the area

Beautiful fall day, and understandably course was full. Walking helped keep the late afternoon chill out. Fall colours were still spectacular on many holes.
Always a treat here. Staff are very friendly/helpful.
Have to think/manage your way around the course....

Disorganized and rude

This season has been an adjustment for staff and golfers alike. A little kindness goes a long way. That being said, I’m not going to be scolded like a child by a grumpy Marshall for following the instructions of the pro shop. I checked in at the shop and was given the thumbs up to grab any cart and go. At the first tee an ornery old fellow (Doug) grilled me as to whether or not I checked in with the starter. Apparently I was to stop at an unmarked pop up tent in the parking lot. Go back and check in! I drive back to the tent and a very confused woman was trying to figure out names and times. I give her my name and she says I can go. There has been enough COVID golf to put up signage and figure out how to direct traffic. Budget course with budget staff. Let’s see how long this new ownership lasts.

Gotten worse

Course conditions were good as always but very disappointed in the fescue being cut down everywhere. It is just rough now between fairways and makes this course play very easy. Many driveable par 4s and easily reachable par 5s without the danger of missing fairways. Many blind tee shots combined with now wide open layout also makes it a dangerous place as it is very easy to hit into groups in front of you. Likely won't be back.

Settlers Ghost

The course was thatching the fairways that day as well as they had aerated the greens earlier that week. They could have posted this info during the booking.
Otherwise, the course was in good condition and was good value.
