Worth the trip

I played 27 holes here during a 4 day vacation with family and was not disappointed. I hit it a long way so I only used 3 wood 3 times in 3 loops. Irons are a smart play around these old narrow holes. Played with some cool locals and tourists alike..Great views of Lake Ontario and Fort Niagara. Awesome restaurant and Lakefront Patio for after the round. Come check it out and DO NOT hit it left off of #1!

A supremely historic treat near Niagara Falls

When I set up my trip to Niagara Falls, I had no idea the area was home to the most historic course you can play in North America (1875). I'm glad I was made aware, because Niagara-on-the-Lake was a real highlight of my week. The drive from the Falls to this town on the parkway is a joy in itself, passing estates and wineries on the left while overlooking the Niagara River on the right. The course reminds me a bit of Winter Park CC in Florida as it's nine holes cut right in the heart of town and gorgeous houses sit across the street. But unlike Winter Park, Lake Ontario and the mouth of the river border two sides of the property, making it wonderfully scenic throughout. Articles in the 1800s suggested this place was a "St. Andrews of North America" and the vibe here is great. The first tee backs up right to the clubhouse and patio, so it's a bustling scene. The nine-hole course, modified over the years, is still quite good with two par 5s and some short and moderate-length par 4s. You really do need to hit some good shots here. Stick around for happy hour afterwards on the patio overlooking the river, where you can see the U.S. across the way. Judging by how busy the course was on a Tuesday evening, I get the sense this old haunt isn't going anywhere. Great fun and worth the drive from the falls.

Historical

The oldest course in North America was the reason we played here. I was not disappointed. A short, but terrfic layout, with beutiful views of Lake Ontario on almost every hole. The greens were the best, very firm and fast with very interesting undulations. I really enjoyed playing here.
