Great late summer golf!

Conditions lush, with spongy fairways, slowish greens. Not complaining, however. Felt like a course down south (without the alligators and gated community). Aqua driving range. Layout and reception excellent. Didn't try out the food facilities.

Damaged greens

This is an excellent course and the pace of play is excellent. I have played this course often over the last 20 years and enjoy the layout.
However, the greens are in poor condition this year which is very unusual. The speed of the greens were were also slow probably due to the poor condition.
I still recommend playing this course.

The Review

This course is a fun one. Plenty of tree lined fairways, meaning you better hit your shots, or you’re in trouble. A bunch holes with bunkers surrounding them, nice and challenging.
Greens roll well. I’ll be back.

Terrible pace

We wanted to get off early on a long weekend and the weather was perfect. We got stuck behind people who had never played before on a work outing. It was torture. The player's assistant did his best to move them along, but we won't be back.

Well kept course

Well maintained fairways, friendly staff, greens a tad inconsistent but certainly worth the 60$ I paid on golf now. Lots of water and loads of trees (bring some bug spray) with not alot of elevation change. One of the better courses I've played.

Some of the greens are in tough shape

Always enjoy this course; however, the pace is generally a bit slow and some of the greens were in tough shape and needed work.

Thank you for the review. The course is shaping up after a particularly challenging winter for southern Ontario facilities. I think you’ll find things have improved significantly since you’re last visit.

North GTA

Played this course for the first time with a friend of mine on a Tuesday. We played 18 holes with a cart within 3 hours and 35 minutes, and that’s with playing from the longest tee boxes.

On site staff was great...very friendly. This course has a range that hits into a pond, first time seeing one of these. Only gripe I have with this course is with the grounds crew who put the tee box markers into the ground.

The colour order on the scorecard are (Red, White, Blue, Gold). But some boxes had the order mixed up! Made for a bit of a challenge when we came into contact with one back 9 hole to one front 9 hole.

Overall good value.

Thank you for the review. Sounds like some confusion with the tee boxes and first we had heard of it. Have passed along the info to our superintendent but glad to hear you enjoyed your visit otherwise.

Worth the Trip

Well maintained course with a nice and challenging layout. The green may need some work but overall well worth the money and long trip from Toronto.
