COVID conditions

Poor course management of course, even considering COVID times. Bathrooms in terrible shape, course is rough and can tell they are not putting $ into it. This is my second round here this summer. I will not try it again until 2021

Enjoyable course

I have played here a fair amount and always enjoy the course. But. I was very disappointed with the sand traps condition. I work on a course so I understand covid issues but the traps are unplayable and they don't have to be. Weeds going in all traps. Put some effort into the traps for a more enjoyable day.

Links course

Be prepared to hack out of fescue on this nicely laid out course. It is a challenge. I wouldn't recommend walking this course. All in all a good day helped by good weather

Had a great day

This course is always a favorite, but, during these trying times, we were very pleased. The course was drying out a bit on the fairways, showing brown spots, but, offering a bit longer ball run. The greens were good and played on the fast side. The carts had dividers, but, since we were 2 couples, each couple rode together, so, we had the plastic dividers removed. The carts were sanitized and distanced from one another for ease of loading and to comply with social distancing. The staff were most helpful and pleasant. We thoroughly enjoyed the outing and would recommend as the best we've played so far this year. They also offered food & drink between nines with the bbq going and the smells enticing.

A Tough Course with Quick Greens

When we go to Otter Creek, we always expect a tough round due to the challenging layout and fescue. Last Sunday it was even more challenging due to the quick speed of the greens. I've never seen them that fast. None of the 7 other guys I played with were happy saying it was too tough. The only thing I didn't like was paying full price for a course that can't even be bothered to rake the sand bunkers even once a day?!?! COVID is not really an excuse for not raking bunkers at all!!

Ladies bathroom

Lack of attention to ladies bathroom, especially during COVID. No paper towels, TP empty. Told club house at beginning of round. Used facility again at the end and had not been cleaned. At any other time of the year that would not be acceptable, but during COVID I was surprised at the state of the bathrooms. I really enjoy this course otherwise and will play it again. I am sure it was an oversight and willing to give 2nd chances.

Good day for golf

Played in a foursome We moved right along and had no delays. Took us 4.5 hours to complete 18 holes. As far as courses in my general asea , this is probably the best one ( if price is not a factor). You need to be a long hitter to score well. if you want a fun day at a decent course ... this one will do just fine.

The course

I noticed this year that the bunkers were getting weeds in them. Now was wondering if they didnt do anything yet due to covid because they also had paint lines for making those bunkers bigger. Also noticed the fairways were little brown but thats probably due to it being so dry. Overall this course is still challenging and a fantastic course. If you ever ate thinking about playing it dont think play it its totally worth it.

What a great hidden gem.

I loved this course. Well worth the drive from the GTA. Amazing value, friendly staff. Didn't get a chance to try the restaurant because of the covid regulation.
