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.

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.

Only one green was rough...the other 17 in great shape. The greens' staff did something right over the winter......in amazing shape for mid June. Played Lake and Island courses.
