Nice course with a few blind Tee Shots. Course is in great condition. We played from the tips and found it an easy driving course with tougher approaches to the green. A few long walks between holes but good for walking also. Will play again.

Hi aclinton.

Thanks for the 5 star review. We had a very busy long weekend, especially the Monday when you played. Our pace of play would be must preferred most other days.

Glad to see you enjoyed the course and layout. We hope you'll return for another round soon!

This early on and with the weather we are having it would be hard to have a course as clean and well kept as this one was. Worth the money? Maybe for the start of the season and during these poor conditions, however as the season starts to progress it may be a little too expensive for what it provides. You can get a similar experience for 2/3 or even half the price. Before Clublink got ahold of her, it was much cheaper for a round (60%) and not much has changed, albeit this is my first time out since the change and we played on the old course. Winds were a challenge at times as certain parts of the course had concentrated gusts that were not manageable for less seasoned golfers. Intermittent spongey surfaces and washouts could be overlooked due to recent weather conditions. Overall a great course to be played during poor weather spouts, but about average when the weather is cooperating.

Hi MatthewBasler37.

Thanks for taking the time to review your experience with us. We are very proud to be one of the best valued courses in Burlington and the West GTA. We would argue there are no courses at the same level priced any lower than us.

We hope you'll come back during the peak season to evaluate the value for money with the course is mid-season form!

This is an excellent course, very close to home and normally quite expensive to play...a fairly mild and sunny day in late October made it very positive experience. The greens had been recently aerated so the ball was inclined to go veer off slightly when putting.

I have played this course 3 times and every time it has been the same thing. The Marshalls are unorganized and are barely a presence on the course, the staff are slow and it seems from the cast waitress to the halfway house they never have all the products they sell in the club house. The course is in decent shape, however, the sand is very hard and barely groomed, the greens are not equally cut and dressed from 1 hole to the next and there is alot of burnt fringes and tee boxes. The worst part of this course is the fact it is ClubLink, even though it is a public course the members feel they are entitled to do as they wish. I will not be returning to this course or any ClubLink course for that matter.
