Very challenging especially for ladies

The greens had been aerated which took away from the beauty or the course and added an extra challenge. Front 9 very difficult, especially for ladies from the yellow tees. Rating seems low given the difficulty but back nine is very playable. Will have to come back and play when the greens are in good shape. Would recommend a course guide book, mainly for the front nine.

Amazing

What a course. Stunning views. Take lots of balls if you can't hit it straight. Fairways like a snooker table.

Amazing clubhouse. Staff very friendly. Great food.

Oak Bay Golf and Country Club

3rd time playing this course this year. Very tight course that demands proper club selection. But rewards you if you hit good shots. Picturesque course with many stunning holes. Staff are friendly and the food at the club house is excellent.

I have had nothing but good experiences at this course.

Oak bay

For a course that is under complete construction. I would expect the price to reflect the surroundings . At $80 and a 40 minute drive from Barrie this course wouldn’t be my first choice again

Wow, what a gem

Please don`t forget your phone (camera) as I did, as there are numerous vistas on this course. Make sure you choose your tee blocks wisely as there are many holes with long forced carries to reach the fairway. The course was in excellent shape, both fairways and greens. Layout is extremely well thought out and fairly tight with lots of poison ivy to prevent too long of searching for stray shots. Will definitely be back before my memory of the layout fades.

Very nice tough course

The course is not long but very tight. Tee shots are critical. Hitting the fairway is a must, if you want to have any chance at par. That said, if you are accurate and able to hit fairways. 2nd shots tend not to be long, with lots of risk and reward. Course plays well for all handicaps, high or low.

The only negatives for the course. No driving range, and putting/chipping greens where not available, when I played. Which for me is a big deal, I need to put and chip to warm up.

Good test of golf

I have played this course from the middle decks a couple times and found it fair, played the tips for the first time and it dramatically changes the golf course. With no white stakes you are required to go back and hit 3 from the tee. The greens were ok for early season play but the bunkers were absolutely horrible (extremely hard pan) overall a decent day and likely will give it another go.
