sawmill creek golf resort Camlachie
The course is very much improved from earlier in the year and great to play. Fairways and greens were good. The sand traps are not. Restaurant, is under new management and just opened. Looks great. The rooms also looked very welcoming and extremely clean. I only played the front 9 but was impressed with the improvement.
The cart rental was expensive. Could not play out of bunkers as no sand and full of weeds. Tee blocks in poor condition. Staff was not friendly but foremost none of the staff where wearing masks and no plexiglass barrier. Also no hand sanitizer. Their computer was not working so had to prove that we had payed ahead of time. I should have reported them to health Canada. I will not go back there again as the coarse looks like it going under and run down. It looks like the bank has taken it over and has put someone it there until the end of this season.
Could be so great
So much potential. Course was clearly gorgeous not long ago but has definitely been let go. GolfNow also screwed us on pricing charging more for our round than a normal round with a cart at the course. Be sure to call the course before booking on GolfNow
Fall from grace
Sawmill used to be one of the premier courses in the Sarnia area. The greens rolled true and the course was in immaculate condition. Now it’s a shell of its former self. The fairways were poorly managed and parts of the greens were brown. (25% of the 17th.) Despite a desperate need for mowing, the grounds crew were sadly more concerned with drudgung for balls. There was no cart person. Then to top it all off the manager chased us down in the parking lot and accused us of not paying. Do not pay more than $25 to play.
Great Potential-needs water
Friends and I have played Sawmill in the past and the course was unbelievable. The course is difficult enough for the good players yet, friendly to the lesser skilled..
Today, I drove an hour and twenty just to play this gem and I was very disappointed with the conditions.
The fairways were burned and hard while the greens were long and shaggy. I understand the weather is hot but, you have to dump some water on the course to make it playable.
Course layout is great and the course is interesting and tough enough to play. The greens are in rough shape , slow, and undulated. Not good enough.
The fairways need irrigation. Half the course is on the verge of dieing. Expected a better conditioned course for the money
Overall good place. New owner so give it some time. The greens need some work they were a bit rough. Employees said a new owner took over and it was their first day.
The layout of this course is Great.
The course conditions are coming around after the COVID shutdown. They will be having some great deals coming soon. Recommend golfing here.
Having played Sawmill Creek numerous times I was disappointed to see it in such rough shape this season. It used to be one of my favourite courses but it’s very unlikely I’ll be back anytime soon.
It’s sad to see this once proud community/spa resort course fallen to this level. It is truly on life support and unless someone steps in with badly needed TLC (GolfNorth is the only viable suitor I would think) this little gem will go the way of the dinosaur. The fun and great - Carrick touched up - once Muylaert layout is still there, but the evidence of neglect is also abundant... from grassed-in bunkers to damaged tee boxes and greens that I’m sure have either been cut with substandard equipment or poorly trained greens keepers.
You’re just as likely to run into a disgruntled property owner from the housing community at Sawmill as you are another golfer theses days. I may try another visit later in the summer to see if anything positive has taken place but for the time being this has the eerie feel of a ghost town minus the tumbleweeds, although plenty of other weeds are currently taking root.
OK but expensive
WE did a Golf now greenfees but when they added on their cart fee it was more than their standard 18 + Cart.
So careful booking via Golfnow if you also want carts.
Course needs some work.
