Despicable

Had played this course a couple times in the past and was never a fan. But after today will NEVER go back. WARNING - The photos uploaded on the side are FAKE nowhere does the course / layout look like that. Walking up to the pro shop noticed the flag out on the 9th and the green completely destroyed. Pro shop attendant lied to my face when I asked if work was being done that day on the greens and said "just 1 or 2 holes". Blatant liar as every single green was in absolute pitiful shape, the WORST Aeration job I have EVER seen (pictured below). on top of that the fairways were littered in leafs and debris, and hard as a rock. Course grass not cut properly and impossible to find a ball. Every time you hit the fairway dirt flew like it landed in a bunker or something. And just when you think it couldn’t get worse, there are HUGE tree roots everywhere, lying just below the surface INCLUDING the middle of the fairways. At best you will hurt your wrist/hands just once, but more likely multiple times or completely break it before the back nine especially if you have any competency hitting a ball (which includes taking a small divot).

Greens were in excellent shape, however, the fairways were not. Fairways were very patchy. Have played here many times and for the money, the course is well worth a visit.

prepare for a 5hr round. Slow play and no marshalls to speed it up. Greens fast and hard. Fairways rough in spots and hard.,

Much Improved

The rain in the past couple of weeks has significantly helped this course. Played early in the morning so the greens for a bit slow start because of the morning dew.
I will play this course again.

Want A Challenge?????

Holy Challenge!!!!!!!

You have to do yourself a favor and come more than once. Like a lot of Stanley Thompson courses, which this is not, there are very few flat spots on the course.
With INCREDIBLE GREENS, this course is a challenge for any and everybody. The staff was extremely accommodating and even lent me his pair of shoes that I had forgotten at home, THANK YOU FABIAN.
The beverage cart staff were quick and very pleasant to deal with, having the remote debit machine made life easier for purchases.
The club house was quaint and the food was tasty and for the portion, GREAT VALUE.
Remember your landing zones and pay attention to the contours of the fairways. The greens were running at about a 12 this day. The weather was fair but HOT and most of the courses I have played this year are dry and burnt. When this course recovers from this years drought, IT WILL BE FANTASTIC!!!!

All in all......Bang for buck The best course in the Bomanville area BY FAR.
GO PLAY IT!!!!!!!!

Dry Fairways and Dry Staff

Started off the day with unfriendly pro shop staff, who didn't seemed pleased that we were there to golf. Played the front 9 in 3.5 hours behind a tournament and some junior members, so the pace was very slow. No marshalls in sight to push up the pace as we saw the tournament ahead of us hitting a combined 6 or 7 balls. Also no beverage cart to help ease my frustration. After hitting the 4 hour mark on the 11th tee, we decided to cut our losses and head home. As for the course itself, the fairways were very dry and some of the back tee blocks were very poorly maintained, with one tee having no grass between the blocks and shooting blindly over some hedges. Overall, a very disappointing course and a very disappointing day for golf.

nice way to spend a day on a golf course

The fairways were not in good shape at all.
The greens were in excellent shape and the back 9 is very challenging and very interesting to play.
I have played this course earlier in the season and the fairways were in far better condition. The hot spiel that we are having may have caused the fairways problems.

A great day!

My only criticism is that it was the fairways were very dry....an I expect by Monday they will be burnt totally if they don't water. The greens were in great shape and a real challenge.

This course is good. Great bang for your buck!

Can't go wrong with Hot Deals from GolfNow. Greens are a little rough but that's spring golf for you.

a little disapointed

I play this course quite often.....great bang for the buck! My only disappointment was that when we got to the 10th green we found it was aerated! So the entire back nine was like that. Putting is such a big part of the game, and to lose that for the back 9 was very disappointing. Golf courses should tell us when this is going on and if you choose to play there you should get a discount. Some courses do, but most don't

Great course

Played this course for the second time and was reminded why I love it. It is challenging and fun!
Lots of hills and valleys! Very well maintained. No two holes are the same...keeps you engaged and excited.

Just a heads up that all the hills make it a tough walk. We rode and had a great time!
Excellent value.

Slow

Really like this course but when you have to play the front nine twice its says there are too many people on the course. Very slow front nine, we saw a group of 5 playing and yet the marshals just ignored. I realize they need to make money but at what cost, people only put up for so long and then they go elsewhere.

Nice course!!!

Newcastle is a nice course with fairly wide fairways, the greens are fast and slope in many directions, overall a good course with a lot of elevation changes.

enjoyable but a little unfair

I know golf isnt always fair but man, the greens were baked , id hit the ball on a good trajectory from the fairway to the front of the green and it would end up 30 or 40 ft foot putt or over the green . . So i figured out early it wasnt going to be a good scoring day and thats ok. All in all this is an interesting golf course that is well maintained other then the fact the greens could have been watered more . . I enjoyed the elevation changes and the secluded from the world feeling that many golfers crave . Pace of play , was poor threesome ahead of us had zero business playing the back tees or waiting for greens to clear 280 ahead. Especially for what I paid on golfnow i would return for more bogeytrains in the near future!

Tough putting greens

First time in 6 years.
Staff not friendly probably due to tournament and what they said were double booking errors.
Teeoff delayed.
Nice layout with interesting holes.
Course is in great condition for fairways, greens. Easily the fastest& toughest greens in the area.
Sand traps not taken care of with weeds growing in some , no rake in one good trap, and not the best sand choice(confusing)

Very Dry & Bumpy

Other than the greens the course played very hard. It was uncomfortable to ride in a cart because the fairways were very bumpy.

The pace of play got slow on the back nine around the 13th hole.

The staff was friendly. Other than the conditions of the greens the rest of the course wasn't in good condition.
