We golfed Puslinch Lake on Saturday and enjoyed ourselves so much, we came back to golf another round on Sunday.

The course is beautiful, in excellent shape and offered a great challenge. To top off the experience the staff at Puslinch Lake were exceptional. We were treated as though we had been members there for years. We will be returning without a second thought!!

Definitely recommend Puslinch Lake! It will not disappoint.

Always enjoy golfing at Puslinch Lake.<br/> Very well maintained golf course. Mature course, with lots of trees,, and a little bit of everything. Greens are fast and challenging.<br/> Easy walking, except for hill from 7 to 8 tee, and gradual uphill walk on 12th. fairway.<br/> Would appreciate cart included in GolfNow hot deals, as most of my golf guys prefer riding.

The greens are fantastic. Very fast, and hold the line perfectly. This course is a must play at 50% off, but I wouldn't pay the rack rate, only because there are too many short par 4's and no real hazards to speak of. Each hole is well framed by mature tress, and there are many sidehill and down/uphill lies that made me think of course in upstate New York. many of the approaches to the greens are blind where you can see the flagstick, but won't see the ball land.<br/> I used every club in my bag, and thoroughly enjoyed the course, even if it was on the easy side as far as distance goes, you had to be accurate as some of the fairways are narrow.<br/> I loved holes #9, #15, and #18 (quirky yet likeable)

Overall this is a nice course, tees, fairways, rough and greens are all in good shape. Some of the tee boxes are close to some greens. A couple of strange places for some trees right in front of the green on the back 9 - never seen this before.

This is a well maintained course in a fairly central area. A few holes are right beside the highway which would only annoy very avid golfers which I am not. I got a great deal from Golfnow (about 50% off) which was worth it. I wouldn't be willing to pay regular price for this course however, it's not that nice.

We booked a tee-time for 2 at 3:50 but didn't start until 4:15 because they were behind schedule. Not only we stared late but there were pile ups. Every hole we have to wait 10-15 minutes to tee off by the time we got to the 3 hole it was 1 hour passed. What I noticed on the 5 hole there were 7 players played together. This was unacceptable. There were no Marshalls around controlling the speed of the game. One of the guy in the other groups had to call the pro shop to get them out. We didn't want to wait so we skipped 6th hole and went to back nine to play and there were people pile there as well. Very poor experience... not worth paying cheap price on golfnow.com. I don't think I would ever book on golfnow again.

We played the front nine in just over two hours, but when we got to the back nine, the starter put a foursome of new golfers in front of us. The front nine was long enough, but the back nine took two and a half hours. Pace of play really took away from what should have been a great day of golf.

Our only problem was the starter allowed a group of four to slip ahead of us on the back nine. We were making good time until then where we weren't pushing the group in front of us and we didn't have anyone behind us.

They needed better marshaling to make people play up to speed so the round doesn't last 5 hours.

This course is very enjoyable to play . It has been kept up to very good conditions every time I play this course.<br/> If you like a course that isn't too hard but still has its challenges it is a little gem in my books. The par 3's are very enjoyable.<br/> And you must pop in for the 19th hole and order the buffalo wings<br/> They are the best in town!

Only cons I have is with price that's why Golf Now rules for that :)

Although the course has many short par 4 holes, it was challenging because of the placement of the greens. It's a shot-makers course with pleasant scenery.

I love this course and play it at least once every year.<br/> The course is always in immaculate condition.<br/> I enjoy the course because it isn't too long, while providing enough variety and challenge in the holes, and allowing a chance to score well. It is a fair challenge for many levels of players, from beginner to stronger player.<br/> On this particular visit, there was a back up on the 2nd tee of 4 groups, which made the round longer than usual. I have not experienced this in the past though, and this would not stop me from going back.

I thoroughly enjoyed playing at this course. It was very well maintained and easily accessed for me. The Team I play with are long time members and since I am a new player, they were very very warm and patient. They took me under their wings and made my playing time a memorable one. Thank you Kim and Debbie.
