Great track for a foursome with friends! Don’t let the lack of elevation trick you - there are lots of challenges here and especially off the tee - greens can be tricky to read too! Enjoy the great staff and super value of this course!

Don’t be fooled by the lack of elevation of this course because it cleverly makes up for it. Challenges greens and tee shots that require thinking about appropriate landing spots! A fun course - perfect for buddies in a foursome!

Of all the courses I've played recently, Silver Lakes stands out as a favorite. The weather the day I played was perfect, the grass was sticky and wet in a few spots, but otherwise conditions were great, and the staff was helpful and friendly.

The course isn't too challenging, although its no cake walk. The fairways at times are tight and the greens demanding, but overall, a really fun course, and a great day of golf.

This course is easily worth the 1h drive from Toronto. I'd happily recommend Silver Lakes to everyone!

Tees and fairways in great shape. Greens were punched a last week so should be rolling nicely by next week. Staff is friendly and courteous. Silver lakes is always a tough test. Tree lined fairways can ruin a good score in short order. Fun, challenging course with a beautiful setting.

Silver Lakes is a nice course to challenge your game. I enjoyed the layout of the course with the water hazards and welcoming bunkers.

If you want to score well on this course you have to think your shot thorough instead of playing it instantly. The course is technical therefore an excellent way to challenge your golf.

There was no marshall so the pace of play could be an issue. The course was very wet due to a recent storm but I will be back once it gets warmer.

Excellent friendly staff.

My son and I played on a drizzly 7 degree day with toques and lots of layers. No one else in sight and it was actually very enjoyable. Fairways were in great shape and greens still rolled well. The layout is tough but fair with everything in front of you. Pro shop guys were uniformly excellent. We’ll be back.
