Beautiful fall Golf

Started off the day with a frost delay , staff were nice enough to offer some coffee and muffins while we waited. Would have liked to hit some balls on the range but it was unavailable due to it being cut .
Once we were underway it was a beautiful day we were 1st off after the delay , we never felt rushed and the course was as majestic with the colours of fall , looks like the grounds people are also on the fallen leaves situation they had some massive leaf blowers on carts keeping the fairways clear unlike some other courses were you can lose your ball in the middle of a leaf strewn fairways.
The price is above average but you get what you pay for

Unfriendly staff

Staff member mentioned the driving range was closed ,, I asked could we at least practice our chipping he said absolutely as long as you retrieve your own balls ,, we are chipping for a total of 10 minutes , some staff member comes up yells at us and asked what we are doing ,, we explained that the staff member that check us in said we could chip,, staff member then came out and lied and said he never said that we could ,, made us feel as if we were vandalizing the course it ruined the whole experience ,,, even threatened to not let us play are round,,, made us all feel very awkward so none of us are ever going back there again

Great, fun course

Very good course. Fun to play. Nice playing partners. Friendly staff. Good carts. Very good greens. Only negatives were the bunkers (not much sand in them) and the group in front of us. They didn’t care about pace of play or removing any ball marks. I fixed on average 4 ball marks per green and only one of them was mine. They were also quite obvious to see because of their size and their proximity to the hole. Otherwise a really fun day with nice people on very good course at the beginning of autumn.

Another great day

Unfortunately there was a power outage at the course so the clubhouse was closed, however, the staff made the best of it and the golf was fantastic.

We want to express our sincerest appreciation for your patience and understanding during the recent power outage. We have passed your very kind comments on to the team members who had to deal with these challenging circumstances. Loch March team members did point out that our guests were overwhelmingly understanding on that day, and we are very grateful for this. The lights are back on in our Clubhouse after some significant repairs to the main transmission line. We hope to be able to welcome you again soon!

Very friendly staff

I was late for half an hour because the main highway was closed but the very friendly staff quickly put me with another 2 young golfers on the next available tee time. We had a good time and I tried to keep up with them on most of the holes. We finished in 4 hours which could be less if we did not have to wait a few on several holes.

Amazing Course

The only negative issue with the round were the mosquitos because of the recent rains. But the course was in great condition. Very memorable experience. I would put this this course on my to play again list. Can't wait to come back. (minus the mosquitos)

Thanks for taking the time and reviewing Loch March. We have been in direct contact with the City of Ottawa anti-mosquito squad and learned that Kanata North is one of the first areas in Ontario where experts are attempting to control a new invasive species of mosquito. The spring floods and persistent rains left the grounds so saturated that water would just pool and not seep into the ground - ideal conditions for mosquitoes to breed. Our guests have been reporting fine playing conditions throughout the day for several weeks now. We look very much forward to welcoming you again!

Merci d'avoir partager vos commentaires au sujet de Loch March. Nous avons été en contact avec l'escouade anti-moustique de la Ville d'Ottawa qui tente de contrôler la propagation d'une nouvelle espèce de moustiques qui a fait son apparition en Ontario cet été. Nous sommes heureux de constater que la présence de moustiques a considérablement décru ces derniers temps. Au plaisir de vous accueillir à nouveau!
