Soggy round on a well maintained track

This was a bonus fall round days after much rainfall. The crew blew the leaves away and the greens were exceptionally challenging with high wind conditions. We had to stick to cart path only as the fairways were soaked and very soggy. We have played this course with dry conditions and it’s most challenging and enjoyable.

Good tricky course

The greens were very quick and well looked after. Thoroughly enjoyed the course fairways even though from gold markers made it very interesting. Will play again.

Rough Shape

Course is in desperate need of some TLC. Pace of play was great on the front 9 then came to a screeching halt on the back. Lots of Marshall's around but no one said or did anything to fix it.

Nice layout & conditions

This is one of my fav courses in fact considering a membership next season. Playable yet challenging enough. It is the best reflection of my game and average scores.

Dissapointing

Sad to see what has become of this course. Development has taken over, destroying a lot of great golf holes, no money being put into the course is evident. Course will be no more very shortly. Sad to see.

Course Needs Work

Played Saturday of a long weekend but course was almost empty at noon tee off. After a few holes we realized why.
Bunkers were unplayable & not groomed all year. Fairways were extremely wet despite not having rained for days. Best part were the greens & the pace of play.
The owners have opted for housing development over the John Daily signature golf course. Because of this the holes have been rerouted from the original design for housing & a high rise. They are currently trying to get approval for more development by filling in the surrounding wetlands.
In my opinion they have ruined a good course & attraction for Niagara Falls.

Disappointing

The course is overall very dry. Too many holes back onto each other without adequate space. Despite the name there are few water features and those that are there are stagnant, algae-filled creeks with lots of critters.
There are many better maintained courses in the area.

Was very disappointed. If a course wants to charge over $100 to play , I feel I should have had a better experience!!! Signs and direction to certain holes was confusing and limited. Scorecards and hole # signs had no description of the hole which made for a confusing day for playing there for the first time. Did not see a course Marshall once! Our twosome was stuck behind a foursome of guys who resembled 4 frats members out of the movie ANIMAL HOUSE!!! Definitely wasn’t expecting that kind of atmosphere at an expensive course like Thundering Waters!!!
Would not recommend this course to any friends or acquaintances!!
