Major reduction in maintenance

I’ve played Pakenham frequently over the years but haven’t been back for 5-6 years. With father’s day, we decided to go back since I remembered it as a good track with good value.
How terribly disappointed we were with the lack of maintenance. Under growth is completely out of control, pathways are all falling apart, some of the memorable tee boxes have been decommissioned because of the pack of maintenance and the greens (the most important part of any course) are half dead with either an infestation or lack of growth.
The owners obviously have stopped investing in the course and are just sucking the money out.

With so many other courses to choose from In the Ottawa area, don’t bother with Pakenham. Save your money or pick another course.

Sorry to see the course fall into such condition, what a great layout and such potential.

Major changes

This was one of our favourite courses in the West Ottawa area in 2014. Conditions of the fairways and greens were first class for the money. However they have made major changes moving from a 27 hole facility to an 18 hole facility in 2015. We played on a beautiful day in September this year and the conditions were fair/poor and the new layout really takes away from the course. It went from one of our favourite courses to one we probably will not return to.

Puzzled by this review. This is still a 27-hole facility.

Great course, great area!

3 9 hole courses, all great, varying difficulty with each hole, the terrain has hazards like high rough, running water, lake hazards, I highly recommend the course.

Playing 18, 2 of the 3 courses combined have a slope and course rating if you want to establish or improve your handicap.
