For anyone who has played this course you will know that it is built on what once was "wasteland" - it was a dump site for the City of Mississauga. They have turned it into a challenging "links-style" course that can play very differently depending on the weather and the tee boxes selected. The yardage on the card belies the difficulty and therefore correct club selection is critical. Many of the holes are uphill and/or into the wind which is always present to some degree as the course is quite elevated in places. The rough height (at least today) was about 3+ inches and it is immediately next to the fairway on most holes - i.e. there is no "first cut" or "semi-rough". So, knowing how your shots will react re distance and direction is key. Also, for those not having played this course often (this was my 3rd time) it is critical to know which way the fairway bends and where the safest spots to land your ball are. GPS units were available on the carts which helped a great deal. Course conditions overall were good with only a couple of greens still showing some damage from this past winter. Putts rolled true for the most part but many of the greens have significant undulation so pace is very important to avoid 3 putts and more. The fairways were quite wet in spots which prevented balls from rolling out on some holes but for the most part that wasn't an issue. Round was completed by 4 golfers in just over 4 hours. Tee time was 10:00AM and finished just past 2:00PM. No significant waiting and no holding anyone else up. I'm working on improving my "mechanics" (aren't we all) so using the range and putting green helped there as well. All in all a great day (not too hot), good company and fun golf !

In my opinion if a foursome is late for their tee time I would think they should wait until others whose tee time has arrived should be be allowed to play first. But instead the starter made my group wait while the late arrivals pranced through us to the first tee making us wait. Maybe this policy should be addressed.

Ok conditions for the time of year. Many uneven lies in the fair way. Too many blind approaches to holes, some from even inside 150. Greens were a little rough. No chipping practice green. The rough was quite punishing

Golf now changed my confirmed tee time of 3pm to 3:54. At the last minute even though I had a confirmation got 3pm. Not too happy as due to the ridiculously slow pace of play, I was forced to skip a hole and pass a very slow group of golfers. Just barely got our round in due to darkness. Plus the greens were in absolutely terrible condition. FsurwYs were in decent dhspe. Won’t go back for a while until the greens are much better .

I play Braeben several times a year and generally enjoy it there. It does get very busy with a wide range of golfers playing so I always avoid peak times if I can. Staff in the shop are very friendly and priced very reasonable. The course is a tight links style and a good challenge. The front 9 can play very tough but the back 9 is easier. Course always in good condition but a ome greens and bunkers can be in poor condition. Overall a 4 out of 5 and worth playing.

Great course, very hilly, lot's of different elevations, narrow fairways. Definitely tests you, and easy to lose balls even when you see exactly where it landed. The greens could definitely use some work, but it's early on in the season.

The course has a nice layout with undulating fairways. The wind was quite strong and is a great factor if one is serious with his game. The greens are rough and the grass stiil has to grow for a good trim for a smooth ball roll.

It was early season golf. Course not ready yet. Was really windy. I'm sure the course will be ready soon.

This golf course is fun and when up and running it's good to play and a really good view.
