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.

Settlers Ghost Review

Absolute best bang for your buck in the greater Barrie area. The course suits both long and short golfers and is always in fantastic condition. Foods great and the staff are always friendly. The only complaint I hear about this course is that there are too many blind shots; while this is true, once you play it a few times and become familiar with the layout it will quickly become one of your favourites in the area. The only thing I recommend is that they put bells or some kind of signals in place to accommodate for the many blind tee shots on this course.

Perfect weather

The course was in great shape. The fairways were great like playing on a carpet couldn't even see a weed. Greens were fast just the way they should be. Pin placements were challenging. Tee blocks were in good shape. The people that worked there however didn't seem to be to happy or friendly but I really didn't care as I was there to golf not socialize. The wait staff and the starter were however very pleasant. Great value for the money I would definitely recommend.

Greens are too fast

Overall, I used to love this course but for the last month or so the greens have been extraordinarily fast which makes for a very frustrating game. Also, Marshalls come around but don’t do anything about slow non-riding foursomes that hold up scores of players behind them. When we brought this issue to the Marshall he stated that the slowpokes were still “on time” - perhaps they should reevaluate the time it takes to complete each hole or tell the slowpokes to move up a tee box because they were clearly not good golfers. I won’t be going out of my way to golf here until the greens’ speed has become more reasonable.

Great course

Fun course to play. Very hilly. Would be a difficult walk.
Great condition. Good greens.
Agree with other reviews, quite a few blind tee shots.

Mean greens

Played this course for years. Always a nice time because it didn’t beat you up, But these last two months the greens have been so fast and several difficult pin locations. Took the enjoyment out of it!

PLAY IT EVERY VISIT TO THE AREA

I play this course every visit to the area. Starter placed me with a nice husband and wife couple. Played to well kept fairways and greens. I'm a pretty straight ball striker but if you're not beware of blind tee shots and approaches to the greens. I had to help Pete and Jo look for balls in the rough a couple of times. I miss the landmark barn. Sorry to hear it imploded.

Rained out.

Excellent condition. Just too bad we got rained out on hole 11 but we got a rain check for the next day to play the back nine again, very friendly staff Who checked us in at 9:30, not sure of his name but he was bald and glasses tall guy very nice. Friendly starter as well.. he was around on the front nine on the eighth hole we were under sine trees waiting out the downpour of rain and he asked us if there everything was OK and if you could do anything for us. That was great!
I’ll be back before the season end. One of my favourite courses.

A treat from start to finish

Had never played this course and was told to give it a try. The course conditions were great. The layout was challenging and fair. More blind tee shots (can’t see people ahead) that I would have liked but the starter said “they are blind but straight” he was right. Staff was very friendly and the Value.......awesome. $55 including cart and worth much more. (Don’t change your prices)

Settlers is a must.
