Fall golf

Links style course so relatively leaf free (which is great for this time of year), food & beverage facilities all closed so the course missed an opportunity to sell refreshments. Sand traps in very poor condition, fairways in good shape, greens so-so (recently aerated & sanded)

Good Day for Golf

Nice course. Big hitter can make the green on No. 3 Par 4. Don't be short though or you'll be in the water that runs the full length of this dogleg rt. No. 6 par 5 is similar layout as No. 3. You can be rewarded with an eagle chance if you challenge yourself to carry the water that also runs the length of this par 5 dogleg. That being said, the course is very manageable for all level of golfer.

Great course!

This is an impressive facility and course. Challenging, interesting holes but we still scored well. We will be back. The only suggestion I would make is to provide signs to help people locate the washrooms!

Favourite course in SW Ontario

This course is always in great condition and staff is helpful and friendly. The course doesn't seem to overbook its tee times so the pace has been great every time we've played Sawmill Creek. Our favorite course in SW ON!

you need to stay in the fairway to make this course easy

thecourse has lots of bunkers,some water and stream crossings the course was dry and hard so the ball did a lot of bouncing but the course is enjoyable to play

Sawmill Creek Potential

Has the potential to be a nice facility but needs maintenance. Greens hard and bouncy and sand traps lack sand. Clubhouse in need of repair and maintenance. Staff are really nice
