Pull carts only, par 3 course, pretty simple and straight forward. Fun to play and get some practice on your short game. Would recommend, especially for the cheap price (2 of us played for $12 each, which includes the Golf Now fee).

It was a very enjoyable round. If you forget your clubs (and shoes and glove... etc), their rentals are Nike Razors, very forgiving!

Enjoy!

Good course to practice your chipping putting/ short game. Would recommend as a practice course to kill time or to work on certain elements of your game. Not a course for you and your buddies as there are a lot of kids around. ;)

This well kept par 3 golf course is a nice use of space that otherwise would go unused. You get a nice view of the surrounding area and Mississauga while moving from each hole that is well maintained and challenging for a par 3. Not many bunkers or water hazards which is to be expected considering the the location atop an old land fill. A great course if you are a beginner or want to hone your game for a couple of hours.

Course was in pretty decent shape. Staff is friendly. No soap in women's washroom. Windy especially at those hilltop tee boxes. Slow pace of play because the juniors camp kids were out. Would definitely come again to work on my short game, but maybe when it's a little quieter.

Saw a pair of peregrine falcons around hole 5!

This Braeben Academy course is a great 9 hole venue to sharpen your iron shots and short game skills, especially your putting. This is no chip and putt venue, so don't assume all short putts are going in, 'cause you will find they're not. This is great value for your money considering you simply cannot get the same degree of practice from 2 or 3 buckets of balls hit on a driving range.
