Very disappointed

Purchased a hot deal four days prior to come from 3 1/2 hours away to play with my dad for his birthday. When we got to the course at 10 am the gate was locked. Tried calling the course and got the answering service that couldn’t get through to anyone. Went to the website and it said the course was closed.

We have thoroughly enjoyed this course a few times prior and have been very happy with GolfNow, but today we were very disappointed with both. We went to Pine knot and the pro was super accommodating. He told us they were fully booked but do what he could to get us in as he

felt bad for us. The course was in immaculate shape for this time of year and the pace of play was great. Looks like we found a happy ending to the day and a new favourite course in the London area.

Firm, fast, big greens

It was cold and very windy. We all had difficulty with shots holding on the greens, and with putting because the greens were very fast.

Beautiful course

The only complaint was how near useless the gps on the Cart was it never gave me any hole details until I was arriving at my SECOND shot then it froze from the 7th hole until the 18th no matter the buttons I pressed nothing happened. Pretty frustrating especially playing by yourself.

Great course for the value

Nice course, little slow pace, expect 4-6 hrs play.

Great value for this course, under $25 on GolfNow Hot deal.

would go back

I must say, koodos to the staff and greens keeper. The course was in very good shape and a pleasure to play. The holes were not too long, but very challenging. The pace of play was slow, 5hrs 10 min, because we had a threesome in front of us that were beginner golfers and had very little golf etiquette. There were no marshals around to help out nd that was the only downfall. I will be back to play again.

As always, a great round

My dad lives in London and this is always our course choice. Scenic views with a great layout. The green side bunkers were a little too shallow to get under the ball-I don’t remember ever having that issue before here.

We played with a couple of sisters who schooled us. They were great to play with and very patient with our mediocre play : )

Will definitely be back. Beat course in London for the dollar value.

Course conditions were good overall. Sand traps were very hard and need sand/machining. The pace of play was very slow. Tee off was 15-20 minutes late. 18 hole time was 5 hours 10 minutes.

The course was in great shape except for the bunkers they were hard as rock, they were some of the worst bunkers I have seen. Too bad, I say spend more money on sand and labour.

Booking at the course vs golf now.

The course played well. Greens were fast and receptive. No beverage cart, I guess you should bring your own refreshments!!

No range balls when you book through golf now. No savings booking through golf now.
