Great time

First time playing at Mount Elgin and had a great time. The course is in awesome shape and the pace of play was decent. Its difficulty is a bit much for my friend and I but I did shoot 92 and that's fine by me.
Thanks

Great course

I have played a number of courses in the area over many years. Mount Elgin is one of my favourite. I like the variety in the terrain. Not all flat. There are courses closer to home in London but I do the drive from London to play Mount Elgin.

Mount Elgin

Course in great shape. Holes in very difficult positions that weren’t fun. You have massive greens and the holes locations are right at the front or back. Pace that day was slow which of course will happen time to time but people in front had no idea what they were doing. Overall great course, silly pin positions. I’d go back if pins were better making it an easier round. And if people play better there they’re going to want to come back. Just a suggestion

Country Gem

At first glance I thought I’d eat this course up. Not too much feskew and some short par 4s. Not a single easy green. Lightening fast and egg shell shaped with near impossible pin placements (which is my only complaint).

Nice Mature Traditional Style Course

We played this mature, wooded course in less than three hours as it was not at all busy this afternoon. The course conditions were excellent and the greens quite fast with some tricky, subtle breaks. A number of greens are domed making them hard to hold, and sometimes frustrating. The fairways were well kept and the rough cut to reasonable length. The only suggestion for improvement would be better signage with directions to the next tee as it can be confusing in spots.

Great Outing

We arrived early and were able to tee off a few minutes before our scheduled tee time. We did not experience any delays during our round. After many rain days the past few weeks, we were pleasantly surprised that the course was not wet and played beautifully. The greens started out slowly, as we teed off at 9 am, but, as the round progressed the greens became quite fast. The fairways were in fine shape as well. The only 'wet' indicator were the sand traps that were damp. All in all we enjoyed our day and would recommend this course. The staff were upbeat, helpful and smiling.

Well maintained course

Always enjoy playing at Mount Elgin, well maintained, quite convenient. Most of the greens are quite challenging, conditions could be different from time to time. You don't lose too many balls here though.

Return to Mount Elgin

Played here last summer and enjoyed the layout but round was hampered by tournament on course and some slowness and rowdiness.

Nice peaceful day this year, we got paired with a nice gentleman from Hamilton, who had not played course before.

Layout is good, nice flow and nice mix of holes. There are 3 very tight driving holes and one has a tight second and third shot as well. Possible to play out of the trees in most cases, but hitting fairs is critical here to set up a good shot into the greens.
The greens here are very true, but also very fast away from the hole and all are sloped back to front and with heavy contours on most. Tap the ball and if you miss, expect a 3-4 footer coming back. Into slope or grain you need to putt firmly.

We had a big storm the night before and lots of leaves, debris and small branches down, but overall course was in good condition.

Good value on Golfnow and carts had GPS in them as well.

Will make this a yearly stop

Great Course for a Good Price

If this course were closer to home, we'd play it lots. It is always in great shape and is a fun layout. Greens are in excellent shape and pretty quick. Stay in the middle and you'll avoid some problems in the rough and trees. Well worth the drive and the greens fee!

Beautiful course

Challenging course, great layout. Very well taken care of. Excellent greens but fast. You really want to try and stick your shots. Some fairways are tight and you can get into trouble easily. Had a great experience, will definitely be back.
