Nice track

Have played the courses several times and it is a good track. Challenging and usually in good shape. The greens were not so great to-day.

Staff is genrally not so friendly. Food and beer WAY to $$$$$$$$$$$

No cart girl.

Great time out with friends!

Aside from the cold weather we had it was a great round of golf. The fairways where great and the greens even better. This is the second time here and enjoyed playing the course yet again. Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun challenging course to play.

Still a good value.

Always like the value here. Just wish course was prepped better. Greens were slow and uncut, tees need top dressing. Could be a five star course

Difficult course but an interesting layout

Royal Niagara is not for the faint of heart. The bent grass greens are very slick, but you can stop high lofted approach shots on them. The course plays harder than the yardage. There are several forced carries, pinched fairways at typical landing zones, many elevated greens and visually intimidating holes. It's and interesting layout though for a relatively flat course and I enjoyed it.

First Time Playing

Not worth the hassle or money

We booked on golf now. Apparently Wednesday’s and Thursdays are league days so we were given the choice of playing old Canal twice or waiting an hour and a half after our first nine to play 9 on a different course. Our cart broke down and we had to push it uphill twice until we finallly flagged down someone to swap it out for us. We had a group of 5 in front of us and it was ridiculously slow, and then a log jam of people behind us. The greens are in terrible shape. Will not be returning again.

Thanks for the feedback, we will have to change our booking block offs on GolfNow so this does not happen again.

Great Value

Course was very reasonably priced and quite challenging. Pace of play was a little slow ( just over 4 hours for a twosome on a weekend). Enjoyed the round!

Hurting course; overpriced

Overpriced, greens were being aerated and noone said a word or no reduction in the price. Never coming here again... Not worth your $60. Maybe they're going out of business.
