Lots of elevation changes

The course is pretty tight in spots and you need to know where to place your shots. The par 3s all seem to be downhill shots from some high hieghts . Enjoyed the round but I like some other courses better.

Slow Greens

Greens were very slow and the cart paths are extremely dangerous when wet. Both our carts tires were bald and nearly a death trap.

Bang for buck

Best course in the area for the money. Booked on golf now for $56 taxes in. Most would pay twice that for a course or this caliber. Definitely tough, but the scenery alone is worth if you’re not the best golfer. If you’re a good golfer you’ll still be challenged.

Hockley Valley Golf

I was at Hockley Valley for a convention I booked a couple of tee times in advance
I forgot my clubs, they charged me $30 for a set of "basic clubs" I was not impressed with this.
The course is very difficult and very hilly
It certainly is a challenge , some wonky holes but overall it is worth playing staff are very nice, lots of trees for shade and coverage, well groomed ,but very small greens overall

Poor condition

The course was very dry and in poor condition. The tree branches and shrubs were blocking the tee boxes. They need to water and cut back the tree branches.

This course has great views would love to play it in the fall

The 3 of us had a problem with one of the Marshall's, he was on or butts for the first nine holes. He even told the girls they should tee off from the fair to speed things up, which really offend the girls. I finally had a enough of him and told him to leave us alone or give us our money back and we will leave, I believe he was confused with our tee off time and thought we were taking 3 hours to play 9 nine holes. Once he looked at the time sheet (after 9 holes) and realized we were right on schedule of 2 hours he let the group behind us pass through and left us alone.The second half was much better. I love this course and I will play it again , but the girls may never play it again,. I will do my best to convince them to play it again.

Nice challenging course if you like to play a very hilly track. But I find all the hills and sharp turns on the cart oaths kinda dangerous. I would probably not play this one again.

Hockley Valley - Round 2

Played this course back in early June. While the condition was better this time (course had dried out a bit) the pace of play was slow - very slow. Waited on every hole at least one group. Put that down (in part) to Father's Day. That said it was an otherwise enjoyable round. Played as a single and was paired with some nice folks. Still some drying out to do but rough is up and thick so those who know this course will be aware to keep it in the "short grass". Will probably play this course a couple more times this season - especially in the fall.

Beautiful day for golf

After a horrible day of rain yesterday, today was a beautiful day for golf. The course is dry and in excellent condition in spite of the heavy rain this spring. This is a challenging course with beautiful views of the Hockley Valley area.

Horrible pace of play

It took us 2 hours to play 5 holes and at that point we walked off the course. Horrible pace of play, likely the worst I've ever dealt with.

Too many people who don't play golf show up to play this course. Save your money and play anywhere else, seriously.

Hockley Valley - Orangeville, ON

This is the earliest date (May 31st) I have ever played at Hockley Valley. Like much of the eastern part of the country we have had an usually lengthy winter followed by days (sometimes weeks) of excessive amounts of rain. Fortunately, this course is very hilly and really only a couple of holes were affected by standing water / mushy fairways. That said, the rough was very thick and tall. This course (like most) is all about hitting the fairways and position on the greens. Due to various elevation changes club selection is also a key. The course seemed to be in mid-season form with greens rolling "true" but perhaps a little slower than they will be later in the summer. Completed my round in 4 hours flat. Plan to play this course again later in the year (maybe even fall) when my game is more rounded into shape.
