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).

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.

My personal favorite of all the city courses, open on some holes to let the driver go, challenging on others to force smart play.

Best all around course from the city, prices are a little higher than Quarry and River Road, however the quality of the course and the layout make it somewhat worth it.

Very good all around course, marks off all the boxes needed for enjoyment.

I golfed here on a Sunday and only could finish 8 holes because of torrential rain and thunder.

The guy in the clubhouse offered me a rain check for the other nine holes. When I tried to golf 9 holes on Monday the 20th he tried to charge me more money to use my rain check. So a rain check is NOT a rain check. If they offer you one, watch out, because you'll go to use it and they'll charge you more money. Why would I pay more money when I paid $46 to golf 18 holes had to stop because of the rain, and then when I'm using my rain check for the last nine holes I'm told it'll cost me more money to finish?

When I complained and said I shouldn't have to pay to finish my round because it was already paid for, he told me that was the policy. Then when I asked to speak with someone else higher up than him, he told me no one was there, when I insisted he called his manager on the phone who also insisted that was the policy.

WHAT A FARCE!!

I would not waste my time going to a golf course with such poor customer service policies. I would recommend not going to any city of London rungolf course. Literally go anywhere else to golf

I went to this course on Sunday the 5th with 12 other people. We only could finish 8 holes due to the heavy rain and thunder. I got a "rain check" from the person at the pro shop for the 2nd 9 holes I ALREADY paid for.

When I went to the course on Monday the 20th, and gave the staff my 9 hole rain check, he told me it would cost me $11 to use my "rain check".

Obviously this was not what I had planned for as the round was already paid. When I questioned this policy, I was told they could not help me, and it would cost me $11.00 to use my "rain check".

I asked to speak with a manager and was told nobody was there. When I pressed this, he called someone on the phone that told me that this was their policy. A rain check cost money to use. You don't get to finish your round you paid for without paying an additonal fee?!?

I would NOT go to this golf course if it calls for rain in the next month. Don't risk it.

This is the biggest cash grab I have ever heard of. I golfed my last time at this course and I normally played at least 15 rounds there a year.

GOLF ANYWHERE ELSE, NOT AT A LONDON ONTARIO RUN COURSE!

It was my first time playing Fanshawe and I was impressed with the booklet they have to walk you through each hole on the course.

Course was in pretty good shape, and price was excellent (booked through a golf app). Rate of play was a little slow, but wasn't too bad (finished in 4 and change)

Played this course because I got a good deal from Golfnow. If I had to pay full regular price, I probably wouldn't have played it. Other than the price, I think this is a good course , in good shape and a good layout. It's not the best course in the area but it's a good public course that will appeal to many skill levels. Not a championship course, not a beginners course but a really nice course for the average golfer. Because they have two 18 hole courses here, players are well spread out so pace of play is pretty good. greens were in great shape as were the fairways. Even the bunkers were soft and well groomed. Beverage cart was on the course and easy to locate when required. Overall, I would recommend this course and would play it again if I can get a good deal from Golfnow.

I was playing this course for the first time. I played with my son and fully enjoyed it. However, we were limited in our enjoyment of the round because the hole markers had next to no information. Not even the distance, no indication of direction, etc.

However, the challenge it presented forced the best out of us.

Great course, I will play it again.
