Great round on Canada Day
The course is a bit short, with shorter par 4s and par 3s. Challenging nevertheless, however some holes are more straightforward. Pace of play was good (we tee’d off at 7am) and nothing slowed us down. Marking of holes was a bit confusing, we ended up skipping 11 and 12 by mistake and had to play them after finishing 18 - and to that the staff was very friendly and allowed us to fit into some groups to finish off these two holes. We finished our round in 4 hours while walking. Overall good course to play.
Pace was slow
The pace was very slow and the groups in front of us wouldn’t let us play through. Maybe too many new golfers ?
9HDCP - Honest Review
Course amenities and staff were good, strong COVID setup, friendly staff etc.
However, the actual golf course I had alot of issues with; mostly with its layout.
- Countless blind shots either off the tee or into the green
- Woodchip Tee Boxes
- Greens littered with un-repaired ball marks
In addition, pace of play was other-worldly. The group in front of me went from a 2-some, to a 4-some and eclipsed when on #13 became a 6-some; where my group decided to pack it in and cut our losses.
Now I understand my expectations were probably set too high, and this is a course for the casual golfer, but my partner I played with only plays 1-3 times a year and expressed the same frustrations I did.
Overall, our experience was very disappointing and I will certainly avoid going forward. I would like to reiterate the staff and amenities and everything outside the actual course was great.
My suggestion would be if you're looking for a challenging, well-kept course, you may need to look elsewhere.
great place . Staff is fantastic and friendly. Course switches from easy holes To very challenging. Some of the greens are impossible to stick due to slope which is frustrating. Only complaint was pace of play - I Tee’d off before 8am and from the 2nd hole was waiting on every shot. Group in front of me was 3 walkers who were also waiting on each shot (too early to be that slow)
Disorganized maybe because of COVID. Layout good and challenging, course needs more water.
Play somewhere else
Greens haven't been cut in days. Horribly slow pace of play and then the kid that was a the marshall told us to hurry up and head back to the clubhouse when we were on hole 15. It was about 815pm with more than an hour of sunlight left. There are better courses for a similar price
Great little course, well kept. A couple challenging holes for sure. Will come back for the price
Disappointing Pace of Play
Most disappointing part was it was one foursome in front of my group that was at least 2 holes behind. A Marshall could have easily fixed this, bit we didn't see one until the 15, after the foursome in question let us play through.
Will give the course another chance as it's a good test and a great value, but this round was ruined a bit for my group because of the unnecessary waiting.
I remember this course used to be half decent for the price. However the greens were in bad condition and overgrown. The fairways were brown and Dead in patches. The pace of play waa very slow and the marshall asked us to come in at 815 when there was more than an hour of sunlight left.
This course played at a pace of over 5.5h and staff made no effort to keeps group moving. Players were playing in groups of 5, in other cases there were random twosomes on the course duiring a packed day. Not well managed.
It is also annoying that this course is not a Golf Canada association member so scores there do not count.
Very very disrespectful to women
Had an amazing day. Went out alone got paired with someone I’ve never met. We both paid for carts. As we came to hole 10 the man gave me (not the man I was playing with) a hard time for not sharing a cart. With covid we can’t. Again I’ve never met my partner. Then after the round which we finished in 3 hrs and 15 minutes. The staff member followed me to my car. Took the stuff out of my cart again not the other men that were pulling out. And said I needed this cart two hours ago. ( I paid for it) and he didn’t say this to any of the men leaving. Told me next time to share a cart even though they sold me a cart. I had a good day but am leaving frustrated because of the lack of respect. I wouldn’t recommend to any ladies wanting to play. And I am not usually a feminist type, but he blatantly pick me out of the crowd.
