New owners....

Apparently the course went downhill until it was purchased in 2018. The new owners have put a lot of work into it, and it's really coming back. It's not an easy course, with narrow fairways, but a lot of fun. (I am not related to the owners.....)

You get what you pay for

The course is short, but decent, and the value is great, even considering the distance from downtown Ottawa. However, we kept on being near a group of yahoos who were hooting and hollering non-stop, and it always seemed to be while we were putting or teeing off. Every other time I have played there it was very silent, so this was probably just a one-off. I will play Rideau Glen again.

Don't golf here

This has to be one of the worst public courses I've ever played. The condition of the fairways and greens was atrocious. It honestly looked like a course on it way to shutting down. I was shocked considering the cost for a round was as much as courses far better in the area.

Highly don't recommend ever playing here.

Poor condition

First impressions. Walk into the "pro shop" use that term lightly and it smells like musty mold. Carts are in poor condition, banged up, ripped seats. Tee boxes, fairways and greens are in terrible condition. Fairways were mowed and the grass was left there!! Some tee boxes were shared between 2 holes. Can't say enough bad things about this course. Only positive was the friendly staff. I wouldn't even play this course again for free!

Waste of Time

The price was good but even then, course was awful and total waste of time. Most of the greens were in terrible condition, grass was missing at many places and even after a long stretch of dry weather they were extremely slow, felt like they never used a roller. it is a short course and hard to use a driver. If you want to practice your iron play and don't care about the condition and quality of the greens then I guess it is cheap. Personally I will not play there again even if it was free.
