Beautiful course

The wind coming off the lake makes this a challenging and unpredictable course. Beautiful nonetheless. The Lighthouse (17) is jaw dropping. Some fairways were a little swampy, but the greens were in excellent condition.

Disappointment of 2020 Golf Season

Disappointment of 2020 golf season. Would not recommend.

Cobble Beach is advertised as an elite golf destination but is far from it.

Reasons I won't be returning:
1. Mundane course
2. Way over priced
3. Inconvenient to get to
4. Slow round with a rude marshal*
5. Lined with half built tract housing
6. Bad service when booking (likely spoke to the brother of the marshal lol)

*The marshal told us we were slow, while we were waiting for the green to clear on the par three 8th hole, and we could see two groupings ahead on par five 9th hole (SMH)

Goose problem

Would have been all 5 star rating if goose droppings on signature hole #17 were not so prevalent. Actually had to move ball to create putting lane. One of us stepped in pile and transferred to cart floor. Again, fabulous course, outside of goose factor. Starter very personable. Staff good.

A great getaway

Cobble Beach in Kemble Ontario is a great getaway destination. The golf course is long but very playable. The fairways and the greens were in excellent condition even though we played later in the year. It was a perfect Thanksgiving getaway. The view from each hole was of the beautiful picturesque Georgian bay. After golf a nice warm beverage in the friendly facilities and a hot tub to warm up. The area offers walking trails into the enchanted forest. It was a beautiful weekend to be there.

WOW on the Sound

This is an incredible track. The course is fair and playable for all levels of golfer with awesome and difficult greens. The sound has 'pull' equal or greater than that on the pacific ocean - Always pay attention to where Georgian Bay is because it is going to effect the break. I have had the benefit of playing golf on many of the finest rated courses in the world and this is definitely one of them. Every golf enthusiast needs to play Cobble Beach and be sure to book a 2nd round to apply what you have learned the 1st time

Good course,

This is a well designed course that is showing some of the effects of the high traffic it experiences.
Accommodations were disappointing for a golf resort. One person having to sleep on a pullout couch was unexpected.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Overall, Cobble Beach is a very good course, eith a few drawbacks.

Beautiful, playable golf course

If you're looking for an exceptional golf experience, exceptional playing conditions and a wide variety of fun holes, this is your course. With wide fairways, large undulating greens and a course that progressively more difficult as you get into the round, Cobble Beach is a memorable experience throughout. The back nine, especially, has a lot of character, with a finishing stretch that includes the difficult 16th and signature 17th, which is situated near a lighthouse, Exceptional dining and practice facilities complete the experience.

A must play

I love everything about Cobble Beach, beautiful location, right on the shores of the Georgian Bay, with a view of the water from every hole on the course. Great course layout, and in excellent condition even late in the season when I visited. A must play for any golf enthusiast.

Simply Outstanding

This is one of my all time favourite courses. The course conditions were impeccable and the greens are some of the toughest I have putted on. Pace of play was relaxing and the green fee included "All day Golf". Every hole has a different vista and view of the bay. Can't wait to return in two weeks

Vista wonderful

Great condition with fantastic vistas and an overall great experience. The greens are fast, large and undulating. The fairways are well groomed, with a good number of traps and wide enough to make your game enjoyable. The front nine allows you to get into rythum. The back nine attacks that rythum right from the get go on #10. You never stop climbing and you keep looking at your card to see if there is a misprint on the yardage.The 12th hole is challenging with the water yearning to swallow the ball the full length of the hole and numerous traps to eat up your drives along the right side. After surviving the 12th you do not get a breather with the #1 handicap Rob's gulch.The rest of the holes do not seem to get any easier since the course has broken your mental game. But rest assure that the last two holes makes it all worthwhile when you look out on the Owen Sound with the sailboats and fishing boats bobbing in the water. No matter the score you want to come back.
