If you like an interesting challenge, then this golf course is for you. It is not a flat course with a good number of doglegs. Picturesque. I will definitely go back.

First time playing the course in 28 plus years. Typical old Ottawa valley layout. Few doglegs that require you to work the ball both ways or you end up in the trees.

The par 3's are challenging that require at least one extra club to reach the services. Greens were average speed.

Cost with cart was $45, but in my opinion still too expensive for the quality of the course.

took my two nephews (12 and 13) who just started golfing last year and they had a blast. It was busy but didn't have to let any players pass. Nice wide fair ways and the biggest and best greens. The scenery was excellent and I intend to go back when the leaves change...it will be wonderful. A very friendly staff and we were early and they sent us out right away. Excellent day!

Found some great deals on GolfNow.com and we have played Renfrew several Friday mornings for under $15 with a cart. Incredible deal! The front 9 is the old course with a typical old course layout, with some challenging holes, but the back nine has some really great holes. #10 with the 428 yd up hill par 4. The green on #12, and two really great finishing holes with "the over the valley" par 3 17th, and the par 5 18th. Conditions have always been really good/great, with the exception of the greens be slightly slow early in the summer. A great deal for the money!

Fair course, but you have to make quality shots..Lots of elevated greens , so no rolling onto the greens, all carry.Difficult course to walk, suggest taking a cart. A few blind shots, so if carting don't be afraid to go ahead & look at the hole design.Enjoy playing there always.Try the draft beer from Peterborough after.

The course was in great shape, despite a previous week of hot and dry weather. We attributed this to a regular high level of maintenance performed by the greenskeepers. The course offered just the right amount of challenge (20-something handicaps). Our 1:30 PM tee time worked out well as we had no one in front of us until the 15th hole, and even then the foursome ahead of us was very quick. Great value for the money.

good shot values throughout and a few really spectacular hole with a couple of impressive elevated tees. there's even a 2nd cut between fairway and rough.<br/> greens are slow and some tee boxes uneven, but these are minor complaints. overall an excellent golf experience!

For an older course it is very well cared for. The layout is well done and forces you to use every club in your bag. Greens have a lot of undulation and depending on pin placement, sometimes your best approach is center of the green (don't go pin seeking).
