Still pretty wet
This will be a great course once it has a chance to dry out a little more. Tough for all Southern Ontario tracks this Spring with an abundance of rainfall in April and May. We still really enjoyed the day.
greens were air rated and sandy
greens were not cut or rolled
greens were full of divots
Wide fairways allow you to miss however the approach then becomes difficult. Very nice layout, almost all holes are approaching the flag uphill. Beautifully manicured fairways and roughs.
We had two foursomes so the starter sent both groups off playing iron bridge and escarpment. Overall the course was in good, not great, shape. They might have a drainage issue as it rained the night before leaving certain parts of the course quite spongy and wet. The greens were in excellent shape, rolling quick and true. Several tee boxes were not level. Two of the four electric power carts died on us about midway through our round. The staff quickly exchanged our carts. At the turn, there was a random single who teed off between us and the group ahead. Then a random foursome came behind us separating us from our friends behind.
Not bad, but better option close by
We were some what disappointed with the condition. Lots of pitch marks not repaired, bunkers not raked and fairways cut quite long. Overall not bad, but better courses in the area for similar price
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.
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.
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.
