No challenge was overlooked in this brilliant Michael Hurdzan design. The 76 bunkers and water on every hole will keep your full attention on the game. The rewards are great and Royal Woodbine's beautifully conditioned fairways and greens make this championship course a real pleasure to play. Just minutes from downtown Toronto on the Mimico Creek Valley, this is one of the area's treasures.

Terrible/rude marshal staff

I wanted to like this place so much, but the behavior of the Marshals were terrible. Long story short, we booked a tee time for two (with cart) for an early morning tee time. Upon arrival, we were paired with walkers. These were the only walkers for the morning and were placed in front of several small groups with carts. We made the best of it and waited for the walkers on the first nine.

About the 7th hole, the marshal told us (specifically is players in the cart) to pick up rate of play. We explained that we were paired with walkers and they were causing the “delay”. The marshal never approached the walkers. All groups behind us had carts and were 2-3 players. The marshals then followed us to the 8th-10th holes and watched us play. On the 10th hole the marshals approached us in the cart again and told us to play from the red tees due to rate of play. They also made a comment about it being a “rough” game. We completed the front 9 in 2 hours and 11 minutes, even while waiting for walkers, slightly above average for rate of play. We left after the 10th due to the continued harassment by both marshals.

I would not return again due to this behavior, but I will say that the clubhouse staff were apologetic and receptive to our concerns, especially Roy.

Nice peaceful round!

Now that there isn’t much air traffic, you can actually hear yourself speak on this course. Great location for those in the west end. Staff is very friendly and doing a great job during these pandemic times. Well worth the fee.

Course wasn’t worth the money

Grass wasn’t cut, no stakes for distance. Just not worth the price at all.

A Gem Near the Airport

A really good course for players of all skill levels. Uses all the clubs in your bag.

And if you get bored, you can always watch the planes landing.

Course condition

Checked their website before booking for course condition no mention of issues. Got there to find out all greens were plugged and sanded and not cut. Hate it when the course doesn’t let you know. Also several fairways were plugged and several in rough shape.
Probably will not return without getting reliable opinion on condition. Many courses around in better shape and less expensive.

Target Golf

I have always enjoyed playing Royal Woodbine since it is quite cleverly laid out and always well maintained. The practice green was sanded so I got no opportunity to do any putting prior to my round. Still I managed a 43/42 but with 39 putts off the whites. A good score for me at 73 years of age.
A wonderful, challenging golf course for those who can control the ball.
Sincerely,
Mike

Good public course

Good experience all round. Tight and challenging layout. Par 5s are short, with high risks on second shots. Greens were true and good, just a pity that some many pitch marks not repaired by other golfers. Only real concern is quality of bunkers, with grass and weeds growing in bunkers.

Great course, excellent location

This is a great course to play in a very convenient location. With easy access just off the highway, close to the airport and nearby hotels, it's a great way to spend your layover, unwind after a hectic day at work, or meet up with friends. The grounds are well kept, and the course is tight which makes it challenging. There are a lot of water hazards, so if you're a hack golfer like me bring a few extra balls. The staff are always pleasant. Food in the clubhouse is good, and there's a decent patio to enjoy a cold round after a game.

Diverse and technical

Overall well maintained, some challenging holes and greens, large variety of setting.
Only bad point is airport proximity : avoid pick traffic times.
