Great Shape Bad Bugs

Very nice par 3 in great shape. The black flies really spoiled the round. Bring bug repellent.

Reservation system needs work.

I booked the course for two people and then half an hour later a third-person wanted to join our twosome but I was not able to change the reservation online. I then called the 1-800 number and they confirmed that the booking could not be changed. This is a very poor customer service feature. In addition, the fine print for the online bookings indicates that rain checks are only available if the course is closed on a specific day. Since course is rarely closed even when it is raining., this basically allows the online provider to abused its customers by denying rain checks to customers when they should be entitled to them. I have voice my concerns to the golf course management and they are reviewing their service agreement with GolfNow

Satisfied customer

Short holes. Not much variety but the course and all geeens are in top shape. Very good price compared to other Ottawa 9-hole courses that are not in half as good shape and charge up to twice as much.

Lovely municipal course

As a perpetual beginner, this golf course is perfect for me. Pretty course with enough variety, water and sand to make it interesting. A low pressure place, close to Ottawa. Cost is well within reason.

Great little course

This was my second time shooting Thunderbird. It's a nice little course with a few hazards. It's great for beginners as it is not intimidating. It's irons and wedges only so leave your woods in the car. I like that pull carts are included - no nickel and diming. The practice putting green is good for warming up. You can replay the course at a reduced rate to make it 18 holes.

Fun, Friendly Course

In my experiences at this course, it is a fun and friendly course. Everyone is laid back and just out to enjoy a quick round of golf. It's family friendly and often has kids on the course. It's easily walkable; we only used the golf cart this time because of the extreme heat.
