I wish I lived closer to this gem of a course!

By far the best kept secret in Eastern Ontario.

Even in mid-November the course was dry, in good

condition, few leaves, driving carts had access on all 18 holes, and superb Fall views along the entire course. Despite the distance I HAD to go back and play this fine course.

The course was in very good condition and the fall colours were spectacular. The pace of play was a little slow but that was only because everyone was taking advantage of a beautiful fall day of golf. Played with two gentlemen from Stittsville who had over an hour drive, the same as us coming from Ingleside, so you know the course is well worth playing.

The golf course is in very good condition. I don't like blind shots and there are a lot in this golf course.

I believe that golf is more like a precision and decision game. Certainly not a guessing shot game. I like to be able to look at my target then deciding how I'm gonna play my shot.

I played this gem of a course this past Monday afternoon. Although a lot of rainfall had fallen the three previous days, I found the course to be very tidy and not at all sloppy. The course offers a few challenges with tight fairways and strategically placed bunkers. Water on this golf course does not come into play very often. There are a couple of "dumb" holes in my humble opinion. However, I would recommend this course to anyone of any skill level. Dont let the yardage fool you. Iys definitely not a pitch and outt track. The odd holes are quickly overshadowed by the friendliness of the staff. Never too busy to have a quick chat. When I go back to Ottawa, I will definitely play this one again.

Tip top fairways and greens, even with draught. Each hole is very different and the different elevation makes it even more interesting. Course is mature thus lots of greenery line the fairways. Worth the drive. Marshalls do there job very well, thus assuring that pace is respected.

Great course for target golf with a few holes to let out the driver. Fairways, tees and greens are in immaculate condition. Plan your shots and score good. Lots of hills and trees to make you think. Pace of play started out slow but the marshal was right on the ball and stepped in not something you see in a lot of courses. The whole staff was incredibly professional. Worth driving to you won't be disappointed.

Can't wait for another crack at it

We were graciously welcomed by those working at this club. It's evident they all take great pride in their work. The course was in fantastic shape! From tees, fairways, rough, bunkers and greens this course was near perfect. The staff, including the pro shop, starter, beverage cart and bartender made us feel more than welcomed. Having not played this course before, we decided to play from the white tees (5735 yards). That's not very long compared to most courses however the fairways are narrow and there are quite a few blind shots.Premium is on accuracy here...I hit more 5 irons/ 5 woods off the tees than I did driver. Greens roll okay...seemed a tad slow...maybe 10 or so on the stimpmeter. Got a great deal from Golf Now. We will return to play this course next time we visit the Ottawa Region.

Course was in pretty good shape for the first round of the year. The greens were soft, as you'd expect in the spring, but the grass on the greens was in incredibly good shape for April.

The starting hole is a bit strange, but not too bad.

Pretty scenery.

I brought my old balls to lose under the leaves, but didn't need them. The fairways and rough were all cleared of leaves. Even under the tree line was not so bad as if the leaves were removed. Greens and fairways were mowed and immaculate, great for November conditions Nice job, I will be back.

We loved our round of golf at Nation Golf on this fall day! Beautiful fall colors and yet no difficulties finding our golf balls on the course with all the fallen leaves moved away! Course was in prime condition; greens have perfect speed, fairways are immaculate with no bare spots! Rough is fare with no difficulties finding our golf balls! Underwood is clear and playable!<br/> Thank you for a great experience! We will be back soon!
