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.

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.

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!!!!!!!!

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.

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.

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

Played this course for the second time and was reminded why I love it. It is challenging and fun!<br/> 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!<br/> Excellent value.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.
