Two friends and I played the course on Friday on a pleasant day that required a sweater for warmth against the cool wind.We found the course to be in great shape with quite a few upgrades since last played a year or so ago.Especially nice were the new golf cars that drove very well and were extremely comfortable with the nice steering wheels and the very comfortable seats.A real treat.

Always have enjoyed this course 4-5 times a year , heard its under new ownership, not sure if it is early season conditions or the new ownership but I have never seen the rough so high and the greens so slow , I am not a fan of high rough especially when you are 2 feet off the fairway and buried in the rough . Rough around the greens and fringe was too high and then the greens were slow ball wasnt releasing to the hole on putts as in the past here . Hope this was just the early season conditions or else I wont be rushing back here

This course is a hidden gem. Although it is not the most beautiful course I have ever played or does not have a "must see" clubhouse, this course is my favorite in all of Southern Ontario.

Why, people are great, food is good, course is almost always in great condition with a great price.

My wife and I drive about an hour about 8-10 times each year to play this course.

If you have not played Wolf Run, you must try it.

The course was beautiful. We arrived 20 minutes early two sets of four were sent before us, one played on average 30 mins a hole the other 25. We taking with the Marshall who laughed us off and said it's a beautiful day and basically "just deal with it". After 3.75 hours we completed 11 holes if was unfortunate that the lack of organization made our round over five hours as we are fairly skilled and play quite often. Better organization and common sense would make this house much more enjoyable.

course well maintained..I understand there was a LOSSA tournament which we didn't know about..we had a 212 tee off time..our approximate tee off time was 240-245 as we had to wait for all these kids to keep walking off the course...we were tired and stiff when we finally got to tee off, then had to go down and tell some older gentleman and lady who drove right past us down to senior/ladies tee that we were teeing off..no one to deal with these people and they sat beside us when we teed off, no course etiquette??

have golfed here a few times before without a problem..good value for money but definitely the long wait took a lot of enjoyment out of our day on the course

We were paired with two other men and able to get an early start. The girl in the pro shop and the starter were excellent. We were making really good time until we caught up to two foursome's ahead of us. Speed of play was very slow after that. The real problem we had was with the two inconsiderate men behind us. Several times they hit their shots right up to us or even unto the green while we were trying to putt out, even knowing we were being held up by the people in front of us.

I find this to be the most welcoming golf course in the area. The staff is very friendly, the course a good mixture of open holes with a few tight ones, the greens are in excellent condition, and the pace of play is always good.

I play this course a dozen times a year, and keep coming back because I find it provides me with the right combination of relaxation and challenge.

The course is pretty nice and the green fees are reasonable, but their rain check policy is stupid. Rain is not dangerous, but lightning is. When thunder is resounding all around the course it's probably a good idea to get the golfers out of the area with their graphite lightning rods. From a purely monetary standpoint they are shooting themselves in the foot because I know that I will never play there again if the weather is at all questionable. Giving me a rain check after three holes of play seems like the right thing to do in this situation.

I have played Wolf Run many times and I always find it challenging, I often think I could shoot a high 70s round but never have and usually end up in the low 90s.

The price is very reasonable and they often have specials that bring the price down lower. The grounds crew do a spectacular job with greens that even the pro's would love them.

Wayne and his staff are friendly and are there always with friendly advice.

As far as I'm concerned this is a five star facility.
