This Canada's oldest course at 125 years +. The layout is varied so all the clubs get used. Positioning is important. Greens are in great shape and very interesting and varied. Love this course.

A nice older course, with an interesting layout. You need to think about your game to do well - this isn’t a driver on every hole course. The greens are small for the most part.

This course is not just pretty, it’s interesting and challenging as well. Hitting over the water on the short par 3 third hole is always fun—hit short and you’re in the river, go long and you may not find your ball in the woods at the back. It’s a dilemma that’s worse for some than others. The other hole that seriously challenges me is the fifth, 125 yards looks so much longer when it’s across a pond! We’ll be back.

The front nine is much easier to walk. There are two nice water holes, no 3 and no 6. Suggest to make a slight draw on no 9 to avoid the water on the right hand side. However a slight fade is needed for your drive on no 10 to avoid water on the left hand side but not so much to end up in the driving range, or use your fairway wood for positioning your drive You can also use a fairway wood for no 16 as it is a severe dogleg to the right. I only wish the rough had been cut a little shorter on the back nine.

The Perth Golf Course is a very interesting course which has good fairways which are generally wide enough for errant shots. The greens were aerated recently however in the summer they tend to be challenging in speed and pin placement.

We were worried about a 2pm tee time with it getting dark early now and got there quite early. They had an opening coming up and let us start an hour early. The course has some interesting challenges but it was fun to play. It is about 1.5 hours out of Ottawa but worth the drive. We like to play it once or twice each year.

Nice layout! The front nine is the original 9 with smaller greens , except #6 which was likely updated when the back nine was added. The back nine is a little tighter with more woods and larger greens. Overall the course is in good shape and fun to play!

I enjoyed everything about the course except: very slow groups ahead who didn't acknowledge us as we waited on virtually every shot; rough adjacent to fairways was 3-4 inches long. Lost balls and searches that came up empty slowed play considerably. The rough may easily be cut shorter to avoid this aggravation.

Love playing Perth Golf Club. Several times a year make the drive and it never disappoints. Conditions were miserable due to persistent rain but it didn't seem to matter. Would play this course everyday if it was closer. Best greens around and risk reward shots all over.

Have played course several times. Front nine very old , back quite new . Front has it's charms, back not so much. Back longish with lots of blind shots, hazards. not my cup of tea. Course was a bit scruffy, weather has been very wet, but that's my sense. The day we played the members were playing in sixsomes ? Just what we need to help pace of play !

The fairways were very rough and the humps and bumps should be fixed.

The greens were good.. The scenery was very good with the Tay River winding through the middle of the course. I left with the feeling that this could be a really nice course with some work on the fairways.

I enjoyed the day !
