Penisula Lakes

My experience with this course was spoiled by the rain that occurred Friday nigjt into Saturday morning.

Fairways were soggy, casual water in some spots. Cart path only slowed pase of play. Instead of searching for our shots amongst the leaves, (bys this course had little to none ) we were searching for our shots because of plugged balls in the fairways.

Putting greens were surprisingly in fabulous shape-but getting there was the spoiler.

Beautiful looking course, fair and challenging-or was that the soggy fairways?

Would like to play this course again in much dryer conditions. But hey, we were still playing in October in southern Ontario. Just a note the quarry couse was not in play, so all groups that showed up played hilside and the the orchard course-waited on every tee box. But I suppose all the groups ahead of is faced the same issues.

I would play this course again But only when a few days of dry weather procedes your round. I have no doubt this course would be an absolute blast to play!!

Won't Be Back!

Had an UnderPar deal for this course. Booked a tee time for 11:20 and we were sent off at 11:00 as a twosome. Finished 18 holes by 2:00, as we had been told we could get our 3rd nine in if we got done by 2:00, as men's league was starting. When we asked if we could play the 3rd of the 3 nines, we were told no as they had to close it for men's league shot gun start at 5...we could have been done the nine well before 5 if we had been a foursome! The pro shop fellow and the manager then told us that they had the other 2 nines booked with tee times until 4 o'clock so we couldn't play them either. Since we told our wives we would likely play 27 holes, they had taken the car shopping in Niagara. So we had a beer on the patio and watched the Quarry 9 first tee...ABSOLUTELY NO ONE teed off during the whole 30 plus minutes we took to drink our beer!! The customer service at this course has never been very friendly, but if they're not going to honour the 3rd nine of the UnderPar deal, then DON'T OFFER IT!!! Disgusted and won't be back!!

Wonderful outing

Layout is very enjoyable but the Par 3's are really challenging with strong headwinds. Hillside was great and overall fairways and greens are in good shape. Tee boxes could use some attention.

5 hour round

I had to call the front desk on the 2nd hole, knowing the 4some in front would be slow...I was right. They should have let us through (3 of us), and even after we had a 4th join us, we were still waiting on every single hole up to 10 min. On hole 10..we waited 15 min. to tee off...And that teed all of us off. I thought with spending over $ 120 for 2 we would have a great time, but the pace was so horrible, we didn't enjoy it as much as we should have. The course itself is beautiful & kept in fantastic shape.

Must play Golf Course

Loved this place from the moment I pulled into the parking lot. The staff there brought a golf cart right over to my car when I first arrived, no need to check in and come back for my clubs. Booked as a single and I was really early, but the starter matched me up with a nice couple and I was able to play almost right away. Golf course was in excellent condition and the pace of play was very good. Booked the round on a hot deal and it was worth the hour long drive I had. Really enjoyed playing here for the first time, will definitely be back.

typical resort course

Good resort course. Not difficult at all. played from the tips without hitting the driver once. very good conditions all around. because many non regular golfers play, pace is very slow. Didn't see a ranger once. No course lay out or slope/par ratings. Couple of blind shots could confuse the first time player, especially if not a regular golfer
