Easy Front, Tough Back

Sadly, the greens had just been aerated, so bumpy and sandy. The front 9 is shorter and generally straight forward, except for one 90 degree hole. The back is much tougher to walk and to play. The par 3s are 200 yds, which is out of reach for seniors and short-hitting women. It is a hilly course, which can be fatiguing. It is better to ride.

Traditional very enjoyable

Fanshawe’s Traditional course (1 of two 18 hole courses offered) was very enjoyable. Huge tree lined fairways, long par 3’s and quick greens made it fun to play. It was perhaps too challenging for the ladies as there is not much of a gap between tee choices, making the par 4’s & 5’s quite long for them.
We had a great day all in all and would recommend it again.

Great afternoon at Fanshawe

Hardly anyone else on the back nine - then a wee slow half way through the front.

Continues to be good value in an established course.

Everything at the course was good. Pace of play was surprisingly good for a Friday afternoon especially since there are no course marshals or a starter. The cart girl could use a little help in trying to get to every group. The only annoying issue has nothing to do with the course, got at least 5 emails from Golfnow to do this review - not really necessary!

Good Value

Course was in acceptable condition (bunkers were in poor shape and greens were in good condition. Golfers need to respect the next player and repair ball marks and divots. Price was reasonable (booked through a golf app). Pace of play wasn't too bad (finished in just over 4 hours).

Much better than I remembered

It had been a couple of years since I played this course but, I use to play it often. The staff was much friendlier and the bar car was actually working. The fairways were lush and the greens were green. No ranger so, we had to wait on some holes but, it was a great day! It'll move way up on the courses-to-play speed dial.
