Northern Dunes Fall golf

Tough layout that I enjoy with great clubhouse staff today and the only downside was wetness of course from the heavy rains

Great Course, Poor Greenskeeping

While the course has a pretty good layout there is a clear lack of attention to detail or investment. Greens are way to firm as the ball bounces off like it hit a rock. For how firm they are the roll of the greens is only okay.

Hidden gen on the Bruce Peninsula

My wife and I played this beauty during our vacation in Grey and Bruce counties.

We enjoyed the links style layout. Good variety of hole layout. Greens tended to roll true.

We will definitely be back!

Nice coursewhen it has water.

The course was in very good shape. Very disappointed in the club house staff. Dismissive and abrupt to almost the point of rudenss.
This is a very good course depending on conditions.

Great day out

Pros
Interesting layout, really enjoyed it.
Good value for the money, but we got it on a hot deal for $39 with cart.
Challenging in spots, but not too daunting.

Cons
Some of the grass on a couple of the fairways needed to be cut.
A few dead patches on a couple of the greens.
Grabbing a burger after the front 9, was told it would take 5 mins, but ended up taking 25 mins and it wasn't busy.

Overall, really enjoyed the day and would definitely come back.
