Great course if you are not a long hitter but try to avoid the sand traps at all costs. The traps are in terrible shape shape, they were wet and muddy, it was like hitting off wet clay.

Decided to check out this course seen the price didn’t mind saving a few bucks but knew it wasn’t going to be the best. Layout is very poor. Behind every green is the next tee box , so your constantly keeping an eye on the group behind you to see where there balls lands. If you don’t be surprised if it rolls near you especially on the 94 yard par 3

Hi Daniel4999930.

Thanks for taking the time to review your round. Our Challenge course has a very open layout, for a more challenging layout please try our Bethesda Grange course. We hope you'll re-visit us for a future round there.

Quickly booked a hot deal for the Challenge 18 for saturday morning. Was very pleased with $45 for my round. Until I arrived at the course to find it was a waking rate only (My own fault for not checking).

Not a big deal, a little upgrade for a cart except it’s a $22 per person for each cart. The cart i received barely worked, had to lightly press the pedal for it to move. And wait for it to kick into gear which sometimes took multiple minutes of rolling at slower than a walking pace. So we’re at $66 each to play 18, and the sour taste in my mouth turns rotten, when i’m told the par 70 is only a hair over 4000 yards. Which is not disclosed anywhere on their website.

The course was in an abysmal condition. Tee boxes were littered in holes and dirt, greens had blemishes of just mud and dirt. Everything was as hard as a rock, surprising since it rained the night before. Which lead to every bunker to be a water hazard.

If Rolling Hills is going to continue to charge $66 a person for a round they better start to maintain all three of their 18s and not just Bethesda Grange. The entire round left a bitter taste in my mouth and I will bring my business elsewhere.

Please spend your money elsewhere.

Hi u129364710.

Thanks for taking the time to respond and deeply apologize for the experience. GolfNow improperly posted a walking time but it was meant to be including power cart. Our pro shop team correctly charged you for the cart, as the notes from GolfNow claimed it was a walking time.

I would like to make things right. If you receive this, please contact me at 905-841-5351 for re-payment.

Very busy tee times a bit close but not a bad course and 40$ for 18 holes and cart in the gta is extremely good. Great for beginners I brought my wife who recently started golfing and she enjoyed it.

Would return for sure

Hi u557834546.

Thanks for the positive review, and sharing your experience with us. We add many starter tee times through the day due to the close proximity of tee times. We hope once you were out on the course, the pace of play was enjoyable.

Glad to hear you and your wife enjoyed the course, we hope you are both back again soon!

Opening weekend. Good for a first hit out. As you would expect this time of the year.

I was playing with a first timer and a group of 4 caught up to us. Their tee shot nearly hit us on the green missing only by meters. Other than that, was a fun game.

I didn't like the fact that at every hole we had to wait, but then while I was setting up my shot the marshal parked his cart right in front of me, completely botched my shot because of him!! Then he told us to hurry up rudely, I felt rushed the rest of my game and did not enjoy what was supposed to be a relaxing day
