Oaks of Cobden is the most expensive course in the area, Renfrew courses and Whitetail are cheaper for Memberships and green fees. No practice facility and no pro and no open kitchen, no amenities. Course is usually not in good shape until August, as a rule the greens are super slow and it is not a championship course. This is a $ 850 dollar membership course and 35 dollar green fee at the best of times. The course is worth playing if rates are low and coupons are involved, not worth 46 dollars green fee. Talked to members and they are not happy with the membership rates, its all about the bang for your buck. The speed of the greens are kept slow, after August and September the greens are in the best shape they can be for Cobden. Surrounding courses are Championship courses with practice facilities and a pro and are ready from May to October and with good greens. Not sure if the owner cares about being competitive with their pricing. It shows on their website, membership is $1100 + HST $1243.00 for 2016 which is more than all the surrounding courses. Cobden has to step up to the plate one way or another for their members and green fee'ers if they want to stay successful or exist.

Yes if you look at all the other reviews, their reviews are September, October, and that is when they have all the kinks out, from spring to August some years its not great, they always as a rule have a lot of winter kill and because the greens were not built properly they have to leave them longer, so they do not burn out.

We were expecting a lot of fallen leaves on the ground but all playing areas had been cleaned. The greens were in excellent conditions and the fairways were very green and well groomed. Totally enjoyed playing here and well worth the drive from Ottawa. Will definitely go back in early spring. The staff was quite hospitable.

club house air conditioning not working upstairs, no food service except for hot dogs that had been rolling around on steamer for hours. they gave us an old cart instead of new electric one, they were parked far away for some reason. lack of staff, all students have gone back to school, the clubhouse manager was not happy about giving us the hot deal rate even though the parking lot was empty. we told her you might get potential members from the hot deal customers and stated that rarely happens. too bad beautiful course, but poor supervision is a major drawback with this course. we wanted to have dinner after the round but were unable to do so. they are like most course today that are catering too tournaments. these courses better start paying more attention to the everyday golfers if they want to survive. I can drive to other courses only kms away.

we had a great day at cobden. The fairways and the greens were in superb shape. Pace of play was a little slow on the back nine (due to groups in front of us having trouble with more difficult holes) but we still finished in just under 4 hrs..

This course has a great layout and design that allows golfers of all types to enjoy the game of Golf without worrying too much about being in too much trouble. The fairways are in great shape with very few divots and the rough is long enough to challenge every golfer. Greens in excellent shape. The course guide book is a nice addition to aid golfers with planning each shot. It gives tips for the greens which also helps.

Very impressed with scenic beauty and overall conditions of this course. Management seems to take great pride to ensure the Oaks is in top condition. Greens especially were in super shape this year. The efforts of the grounds crew has certainly paid off.

A couple of very tight holes in the back 9, but overall it's a fair but challenging course. Staff is friendly, professional and flexible. I like this course very much. Recommend.

There are two holes, 11 and 15 that are completely different from the others. This might be considered a negative to some players. Most holes I would consider moderately difficult but these two are narrow with blind Tee shots and anything right or left of fairway is probably lost. The greens are usually in good condition but not lightening fast.

My friend and I had a most enjoyable day. The course is well maintained with mature trees and rolling hills. There are opportunities to just go for it and lower your score or you can choose to play it safe. The staff were quite friendly and the pace of play was good once we teamed up with a single golfer playing just ahead of us. I bought their coupon booklet for $60 which gives you 3 free green fees plus some 2 for 1 coupons and reduced green fees.
