Poor conditions

Friendly efficient check in staff. The course was in very poor condition. Fairways were bare. Hard to find good grass to hit from. Sand traps were like concrete and full of weeds.

Front nine was in tough condition compared to back 9. Fairly silly having a shed in play on fairway 17. Oops, but had a super quick round for 3 guys under 3 hrs

Course conditions are terrible

Played Northern Dunes a few years ago and it wasn’t to bad. Went there on the 21st of June for a golf trip and it was awful. The fairways were patchy, burnt out and had more weeds then grass. The greens were beat up and the ball would bounce more then roll. Extremely disappointed in the condition of the course. They charge far more then they should for this course as well. I will not be returning again even though I am in the area all summer at my cottage.

Not worth the money

We had an awful experience at Northern Dunes. We read reviews from 2019 previous to attending the course and they are all accurate.

The ground is hard and dry for the front 9 holes. The back 9 holes were better but quality was still low. Again it looks as though they focus on the quality of holes closest to the highway to look the best.

The day was very hot and there was no one working on the beverage cart for the day. We were not told this either before starting. We did have some water on the course but not enough to get us through 18 holes. It would have been nice to purchase some water or at least would have been nice to know the beverage cart wasn’t running before heading out.

We will not be returning to this course. The price is too expensive for the quality of the course.

Glass

Fairways were decent for the time, few rainy days and a cut after that would bring it too a good condition. Cant blame the staff or groundskeeper for dry weather. Greens were freshly rolled and glassy due to good cut but dry grounds. Would recommend to anyone, layout is nice. Looks deceivingly easier than it is.

I will be returning at some point, lots of courses I want to play.

Great track conveniently located for Grey Bruce residents

Course was in good shape and COVID protocol was easy to follow with check in and cart.
One suggestion is separate line for golf check in and beverage sales. We were slowed a bit to start our back nine due to the queue

Surprise

It is a very good layout. Course was in overall great shape considering the shotgun opening.
Only negative was the group ahead. Extremely slow pace. A Marshall would have been nice to either move them along or remind them to allow faster groups to play through.

Great value country course

Some great holes set in a quiet country environment.
Course conditions such as fairway grass could be better but it’s good value for the price.
