Decent little track

A reasonably decent fun little course, some intriguing holes. greens are somewhat in rough shape and very slow, more like what you expect to see in early spring. However played the 12 holes in 3 hours. Bottom line you get what you pay for, I had no complaints other than the speed of the greens.

Rough Shape

Course is still under major revamp as it changes over from an 18 hole to a 12 hole layout. Lots of evidence of construction work still to be done. Traps not operating. Signage lacking and or confusing on the course.
Course is only of interest to players New to the game or Juniors under age 12.
Greens are sub standard in all aspects.
I recommend going to a driving range vs playing here if you want to hit balls.

New 12

First Time playing the redone course. As it was a hot day 12 holes was enough. Generally, I like it but the fairways are rather rough to get around in a cart and some digging that has been going on is unfinished around the course

Very disappointed

Course was NOT ready for play
Grass was not cut
Debris and heavy machinery littered the course.
Advertised carts on golf now, no carts available, the push carts were ALL broken, no straps, bag fell off carts non-stop because of the rough terrain.
Holes were not easily accessible, large mud pits and uncut wet long grass between greens and next tee blocks. Never seen anything like it.
8th hole was not playable at all.
Yardage was inaccurate, and massive ruts and tire tracks ruined many of the greens that were the worst I have seen EVER.

This course should not be open to public or at least not advertised on golf now as a “hot deal”.

Would appreciate a response or a voucher to compensate. I understand that some courses are not great, but if carts are not available golf now should not advertise carts, and should not be under category hot deals. Very misleading.

Windy weather

The course was in poor condition. It is under new management. They are in the midst of improving the course conditions. Would have liked to know this before we golfed. As well it was only nine holes not 18 as indicated. The food facility was excellent and the staff were very accommodating.

Poor course conditions

I have played this course last year 3 times, and the course conditions were great. This was my first time playing here this year and I was a bit disappointed. The putting greens are browned and some were floded by the sprinkler (Hole 9). Some greens had some top soil dressing, looks like repairs. The fairways were mowed however the clippings were left around the putting greens, I lost 4 balls somewhere in those clippings. I will wait until course conditions improve. Too bad, I really like playing this course.

Wait till summer

The course has a lot of flood damage and some greens in bad shape
Early in the year and it will improve
Staff could have told us that the 15 th hole had a temporary green set in the middle of the fairway
Lots of bugs with proximity to the river
Canada geese leaving their mark on fairway and greens
Wait till summer

Short course

There is only one par 5 hole.
When I check the website before I visit there but there were no informations for the course.
Golfnow should try to provide details of the courses before the customers choose their option. Many courses on Golf Now don't show the course details for now.
One of 18 holes is under construction.
The staff was very kind and reliable.
The promotion rate was $25(tax and cart included). It was not much different with Golf Now's Hot deal price. It was a little bit disappointed fact.

Good course for beginners

Lots of par threes but they are long ones so for beginners work well. Friendly relaxed environment inside and outside the clubhouse.
Recommend for players new to the game or those that want to practice their mid and short shots.
