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.

A tournament was just ahead of us and very slow which made our round 5 and 1/2 hours on a very hot day. Too long and they needed to make it a best ball or scramble to speed it up. Otherwise it was a challenge and fun.

Not long but plenty of challenge. Lots of hazards, makes you think. Make sure somebody in the group has a laser or GPS.

Plenty of undulation on the greens, traps are plentiful and in good shape.

Great short track close to Pearson, lots of planes flying over.

First time playing here. I love it. Target golf yes, but only hitting driver four times means you must think, play to your strengths, and place the ball where you can attack. Given how wet it was, the greens were fantastic.

The first cut on most fairways was too long.This course should have three cuts, fair, first cut and second cut. We were hitting shorts off fairways in 6 to 9 inches roughs. Way too long for an average course.

Greens were a bit slow. It was pricey for the quality.

Always good value for the money. Great course for working on smart golf. The course provides a number of high risk/reward possibilities that will tempt you from start to finish. Greens are always in good shape and the wind will be a factor when its blowing.

This is a great course to play, I use to work in the maintence while I was in highschool, and years later still call it my home course since I’m down the street. Very challenging. Hidden bunkers, lots of water, if you miss the fairway, you have some tough times depending where you land in the rough. This is a course that forcing you to think of where your going to shoot and place your ball. Overall, the price is high sometimes, but well worth it. On busy days expect a long day but excellent course overall. I do enjoy this course!

I was surprised what a great little golf course this is. Played off the tips and really enjoyed the challenge. Some great holes - particularly 270 yard plus dog leg par 4. Course in great condition for this time of year. Well stocked pro shop and friendly staff.

Only issue was pace of play. You get a variety of golfers here so some were very slow. Lots of Marshall’s out though. Cart girl was missing and halfway house was closed.

Would play again but only in the week to try avoid slow play.

Course called me to tell me they had had a frost delay

After finding out that I would only have maybe 2 hrs to play I asked them if I could cancel and I did

So did not play and paid your fee for nothing

Played on a cold November morning, first time here, liked the layout, good mix of holes, requires good course management which is a nice challenge. Waited to tee off on every single hole. Over 5 hours on a cold day isn't ideal, something should be done to speed up the slow group in front that held up about 6 other groups behind. Definitely a lot of airplanes to distract you, but it's all part of the challenge!

Great course at great price. There had been a lot of rain earlier in the week, so it was "cart path only", which is sometimes awkward if you get a bad lie. Generally a good day. Would definitely play it again

course has been in very good shape all year. even at this time of year greens were true and fast. just wish golfers would show more respect and fix divots, seems to be an issue everywhere!

fun course, played in under 4 1/2 hrs.
