Incredibly nice course with beautiful views of the water. a few less trees in some locations would improve the view of the water.

Great course - but

Had a great round there. One of the best courses in the Blue Mountain area. Everything was great except for the starter giving about the longest list of special course details I have ever heard . There was no way my wife or I could remember them all what seemed like 20 plus items. Also the group ahead of us consisted of 4 members who were incredibly slow. They knew we were waiting behind them from the first hole. Finally I asked to play through and they refused. Too me it’s no fun having someone waiting behind you on every shot. Fortunately they only played 9 and on the back 9 was much better. Spectacular views of Georgian bay.

Lora Bay

Greens were fast but not in great shape.

Bag staff did not wear masks and did not honour social distancing

Starter did not tell us the pin location and did not make us aware of how to navigate on holes were paths were under construction

Along time waiting

Golf was very slow, and the on course Marshall said 5 hours was expected. I wish they'd told me that upon booking, as I wouldn't have gone. Expensive for what it is, even without it being slow. Would not go back.

Great layout poor service

Lora Bay was in great shape. Warmest day in weeks. Saw beverage cart once after hole 4. No water on course due to covid so would have expected better out of place charging what Lora Bay does. Especially with heat and humidity. Also always had to wait on 2somw infant of our 4some. Marshall said they were on pace. Not Cceptable answer. Especially for 2some

fabulous lay out

Fazio/.Lehman design is outstanding. New greens keeper and ideal conditions have this course in the best shape I have seen in the eight years I have played there.
Greens, fairways and tee boxes are the pretty near perfect. Plenty of challenges here ..greens are quick and tricky to read, rough is thick, traps are thin on some holes
Some new housing construction on holes 5-7 going on.

Challenging course with great views!

We had a great day playing Lora Bay. Staff was friendly and helpful, course is well maintained, challenging layout and greens, and really nice clubhouse and restaurant. Highly recommend this course.

Not Worth The Fees

4 of us played Lora Bay for the first time. Although the course was in good shape, no way is it worth the price we paid.
Our prior game was at Monterra. Their fees are more
In line with what Lora Bay fees should be.
In short, a nice challenging course but not worth the price!
