course was wet and cart path only....

We luckily were paired with another twosome or play would have been slow. Greens were excellent but the fairways were quite wet and spongy in places making it more difficult. Beautiful layout and the rough was very tough to get out of at times. Challenging bunkers and we didnt care for the gravelly sand but otherwise a good day.

Glad to hear you enjoyed our course despite the wet conditions from all of the rain we've received lately. Hopefully you'll be able to give us a try again next Spring in dry conditions.

Wet and Wild

The course had received a fair bit of rain so wn byas a bit waterlogged. Had to play lift clean and place with next to no roll ie plugged balls were the norm. The greens were just the opposite ie cut thin and dry so they were pretty fast. These too opposite made for a challenging round. Conditions were overcast to the point of threatening with plenty of unpredictable swirling winds. All in all...a challenging day and we got more windburn than sunburn.....and a little bit of burn from the course....lol

Ussher's Creek is the gem of Niagara and Western New York

All three of the regulation Niagara Parks Golf Courses are excellent but Ussher's Creek is the crown jewel of them all. It is very challenging and it rewards good shots and punishes errant shots, sometimes severely.

The greens are in the best shape that they have ever been in and they were rolling at about a 12.5 on the Stimp today...fast and true are the words to describe them.

If you haven't played here yet, do so. It is wonderful.

Expect mud on every tee shot

The course grass takes a good 15 yards off every shot because it sticks into the very soft fairways. It hasn't rained in a week so it was not the weather. It's sister course, Whirlpool, has a different base or grass and you get a lot longer drive. This is not a short course to start with so many holes are impossible from the start. Play Whirlpool or Grand Niagara and play good.... you will just frustrate yourself here trying to reach the green. A scenic course and nice facilities.

3rd round of 3 in Niagara for weekend

Never seen it this busy at 7:30am on a weekend. Huge group / tournament on Battlefield which made it next to impossible to get to bag drop area. Thanks god we were on Ussher's Creek !. Course is great layout, greens rolled nicely bunkers in good shape. Fairways were recently air rated and made for mud balls. We played lift/clean and place due to wet and muddy fairways, this was the only draw back.

comapitively speaking

We played Whirlpool Course on Sat. and it was very disappointing. The Legends course is night and day by comparison. Don't even bother to go to Whirlpool. It is vastly over-rated.

Pace of Play Spoiled the day

I was on hole #13, and it was already 3 hours 10 min. The 3some in front of us was so bad that when we decided to drive past them and leave, there were 4 entire holes open. No marshal !!!

Great value

As per past rounds at Usher Creek it was a great day, pace of play was excellent as well as the course condition. We were paired up with another twosome from out of town and they were a pleasure to play with. As a Niagara resident it is great to be able to share these courses with tourists and out of town quests as well as halving them readily available for us locals.

And thank you to GolfNow and the local courses for making the rounds available at a more than fair market value.

Good Course - Average Price

Pace was good until we caught up to a foursome. Took about 4.75 hours to play. This is about .75 hours longer than we play in a cart and 1.25 hours longer than when walking.

Rough was long and lost a couple balls. Fairways good but somewhat wet. Greens slower than they looked with some small bare spots from aeration?

Would play again hopefully when the humidity is lower since it was uncomfortable.

Extremely slow pace of play

Good challenging course. Extremely slow pace of play took over 4 hours for a two some. No marshals out on a weekend to speed up slow play and slow players lacking etiquette to allow faster players to play through.
