Course was decent for the first 6 holes and the last few. The holes on the other side of the 401 were meh. Wouldn’t rave or rule out this course based on conditions, pace of play, and layout.

Mid day round, wasn’t by any means a busy day, albeit it was beautiful out. Spent 2 and a half hours on the front 9. Ended up merging with two indivudal group ones, one of which had a tee time an hour after us. Two groups in front of us (a 2 and a 3) held everyone up. The 2 in front of us didn’t look like they knew a whole lot about golf, didn’t let anyone through. Marshall’s were out but clearly not monitoring the pace.

Nice course, definitely challenges you if you have trouble with keep your drive straight. I would play again but the marshalls need to do a better job keeping the pace up!

Good condition and course overall for being muni city course. Longg walk from the tips but not too much elevation. Great natural landscape , which means lots of OB so bring a lot of balls.

Great course. Holes are nice but spaced out quite far at times. If you normally carry you might want to rent a pull cart. Greens were nice and soft. Tee blocks are good for the most part. Nice to hit the range before the first tee block. Starters were hit and miss, one round I had a really good friendly person, next round the guy was snarky and totally miserable. Overall I would recommend, either the new 18 or classic 9

My wife and I played Doon for the first time on Thursday. Beautiful day.

We were told that there were not many players on the course and everything went well on the front 9. Course was in great shape. We started the back nine and on the 13th tee a couple, walking, showed up out of the blue. Had not seen them ever before.

Their play was slow and at that point we abandoned the rest of our round. It was just going to take too long to complete.

We would go back again, but not this year.

I've played Doon quite a few times... always enjoy it... some of the holes are fairly far apart so it adds yardage for the walkers.

Course is always in good shape, a variety of hole styles and lengths. Definitely worth the price.

We enjoyed the course and we were happy to have used a power cart due to the considerable distance between some holes and a few hills to climb. The course is in very good shape and the layout is varied and interesting

The course was in very good condition and the price was right!!!

The down fall was the constant hum of the traffic from the 401 Highway!!

Best hole on the course is 18 ....which most of us figure is going to be an amazing hole and without dismay is was!!!!

Course has some challenging holes and was in good shape. Issues were with workers who didn't want to help speed up the pace of play. There were 5 twosomes stuck behind 3 foursomes. Near the 10th hole two groups actually turned into an eightsome!! Round took almost 5 hours to play because of poor golf etiquette and staff unwilling to help. There was never a ranger on the course. Complained to staff inside but none of the 5 workers wanted to do anything.

We walked the course and definitely got a lot of steps in. There are long distances between some holes but we were ok with that. Some fairways were really hard making for some interesting/unpredictable bounces. Overall, good experience!
