The rain stopped on the first tee deck. Had course to ourselves. Well maintained fall day and very few wet spots if any after large rainfall. Love this course. Got it for a steal on a hot deal, couldn’t pass it up.
Changing tee decks on this course completely changes club selection and the course feel
Great day of golf, with one hiccup
Great course and round!
Battery in golf cart died on the 16th hole, half way up a very steep hill. Wasn’t a safe place to break down. other than that great experience.
Lora Bay - absolutely
If you plan to be in the Thornbury area and have your sticks, make a time and go have a ball. This is a very nice course. Playable but it can play tough. This is a high-end public course. It’s not cheap but GolfNow can often help.
won't get your value from this course
While the course is beautiful and quite challenging, I expected more from a course like Lora Bay. No GPS on the carts, which a rare thing for an elite golf course. No course map books to at least let you know how far key points on the fairway were, and where all the bunkers were located. we asked for one, but were told "oh yeah, we used to have those around here somewhere". Bunkers are in awful condition, some like cement, some full of water from rain 3 DAYS BEFORE!
The course marshall was very friendly, though,m as was the waitress in the restaurant. Don't think i will go again, not worth the money. Cobble Beach offers way more for your money
Very sad to see this gem in decline
I’ve been going to Lora Bay every year with a bunch of guys since 2004, but we won’t be going again. We felt violated being charged $155 to play a course in such atrocious shape. The bunkers, which were always a terrific feature of the course, have not been maintained at all over the past few years and now have no sand or edging and are unplayable. The poor condition has completely ruined what was always a favourite course. So sad.
Lora Bay Experience
Would play it again anytime. A very good day with a group of friends. We were the only group of 8 that stayed for dinner and the staff was excellent.
Premium track in Georgian triangle
An excellent layout with outstanding Course Maintenance. A fun track without any gimmicky holes. Although a little pricey we managed to Lucky into a promotion which made it worthwhile.
A must play for anyone who loves golf and finds themselves in the Collingwood to Meaford area.
Beautiful scenery, amenities fall short
Lora Bay is a beautiful course and challenging.
For this price, the clubhouse should have a locker room with a shower, there should be a course map of guide as many of the holes are blind, the sand traps are hard and many have little sand.
They can do better! At $75 on Golfnow, it’s ok. At $135, not so much.
Quality control issues...
I played Lora Bay a few years ago and was very impressed by the course. It's an impeccable design and was in tiptop condition. Carts were outfitted with small coolers which contained ice and complimentary bottled water, and there was a very useful yardage book (essential for golfers not already familiar with the course).
Which brings me to my round last week... for 135$ Lora Bay was not good value this time around. No yardage guide, water (or even a water station), but more disappointing was the condition of many of the tee boxes, which were dry with much dead grass. There seems to be a watering issue as well, as we had to play 4 holes with greenside sprinklers on full tilt (at high noon)... no apology from the course or discount offered.
All in all, still a good course, but for the money there are better deals nearby.
Great day just sun was going down to quickly
It was a great day lots of fun its was later afternoon wish I had the day to golf but sun was falling quickly ! But the staff was great !!
Water .. what water ?
One of my favourite tracks in Ontario. BUT tee blocks and some fairways are burned out ! There must be a water rights issue cuz terrible conditions abound. Also, there must be something done about pace of play. When there are groups of players that can’t hit the ball to the fairway cut line from the most forward tee.. SOMEONE has to explain that MAYBE this is too much golf course for your skill level...refund their $ and move on. 6 hours is WAY to long to play a loop here. Frustrating to say the least. Yes, they paid their money... so did we.
Oh... I’ve read some reviews out there about how terrible the bunkers are here... the crushed shell or whatever they have in them is the best and most consistent bunkers you’ll play in Ontario.. LOVE EM..
Beautiful course to play for a twilight round! Conditions were awesome given the time of year and lack of rain! Great job to the maintenance staff!
I will be back soon!
Perfect Day for Golf
The day was perfect and the course as usual was excellent. The only downside were the burnt out portions on some of the fairways. The heat has caught up to the courses and water is needed badly.
Lora Bay is one of our favorites.
Challenging course if you aren’t hitting your approach shots accurately. Everything was in great condition but found the bunkers to be hard and not a lot of sand. Other than when I found myself in a bunker this was a very enjoyable round!
Great Day Played Under Excellent Conditions
The golf course superintendent has done a magnificent job of overcoming wet, cool and overcast conditions to have the course in superb condition.
It was a treat to play.
