Enjoyed the challenge of this course. Conditions were good. Rating for pace of play is lower because we followed a tournament.

The cart we had kept locking on us saying we were in a restricted area when we were in the middle of the fairway. There were 2 others carts in our foursome ( 2 people behind us quit because of slow play so the other golfer joined us) and their carts did not beep or lock on them. The GPS kept coming up with messages that we were slow and we might be asked to skip a hole. We could not go any faster because there was a group ahead of us that was also held up by the tournament. We did not complain about this to the pro shop at the end of the road as we just wanted to get home.

I play here regularly it’s my favourite course in Barrie and getting a round in for $36 with cart on the weekend before 2:00pm was a steal I couldn’t pass up even with rain in the forecast. It didn’t rain at all got round in a fast 2/12 hours and shot my best score to date at Tangle. Playing again 2 days later on Victoria day!!

We were 30. Minutes behind pace but the Marshall was no where to be found. I could not believe that no one cared enough to move the people that were holding up the rest of the course. The course had many areas that were under casual water.

Have a group that golfs every 3rd week of Sept for years and have travelled to Phoenix, Southern Ontario, Ottawa area, and this year we tried Muskokas. Heard about Tangle Creek from friends, Score magazine, all good reviews. I can tell you that we have done about 50+ different courses in our travels and this is by far the worse one in terms of service. First of all, we asked for a replay 3 weeks prior and was told that there would be no problem, when we checked in they told us we couldn't play our second game until 3:30, after teeing off at 8 AM. Secondly, they overbooked the course with a local high school tournament with 80+ golfers and they had all a shotgun start at 9:00 Am, when both members and green fee players where still on the course. (even the members weren't told about the tournament). After lunch, (great service by restaurant staff), the person in the pro shop said to people coming in that they where 20 minutes behind and when they got to the tee off spot they were 1 hour behind. How can you continue to accept green fees from people when you know full well they won't be able to get their full round in. Only saving grace was the friendly starter Dan...

I've played this course many times over the years, and I really enjoyed it for the first time this year. Living in the heart of the city the only knock I can give it is the drive. But well worth it. Teed off on time they teamed us up with 2 singles, who were great guys, and we had fun. Greens were marbly but smooth, fast, and true. First few greens were recently punched and sanded with no effect. Bunkers were in real good shape, enough sand, which seems to be a problem in many courses.Pace was swift on the from in just over 2 hours, but the back got a little slow closer to 2.5. But it was a gorgeous day and had a great time.

My wife and I played this course for the first time. Rich the started was very friendly and assistful. We were paired with 2 gents that played the course before. They helped us navigated around the course, especially on those holes that had blind tee shoots. Carts had built in GPS which also helped. We enjoyed our round immensely and will likely return next time we are in the area.

My wife and I played this course for the first time. I have to say the course was in pretty good shape. The greens rolled true and fast (I'm guessing 11 on the stimp meter). Lots of undulation. Course is laid out nicely however there are a few blind tee shots. Luckily Rich the started paired us up with a couple of guys that have played here before and they helped us tremendously. We played from the blacks (6100+ yards). I was comfortable there but could play from the golds next time. Most par 5's are reachable in 2 from the blacks with decent tee shots. Bigger than normal greens. Clubhouse/ pro shop very nice. Beverage/ food a bit pricey. Overall...a very nice and challenging course with excellent service.

Ive been playing this course since it opened, loved it from my first round.

It became popular quickly which eventually priced me out.

I play here 2 or 3 times a season as a treat.

I was sooooo disappointed from the 1st green onwards. To have a spectacular layout like this spoiled by destroyed greens is truly a shame.

I'm no "head greenskeeper" but its obvious.

Hope they get it back because I just love this course.

Good luck

Liked the course layout. Beautiful views from several spots throughout. Good practice area although a lot of the tee deck was off limits for pro lesson space, crowding users to one end. Lots of up and downhill shots with a couple blind tee shots but good info on the cart gps to guide us. Greens are tricky, hilly and fast. Turf was browning out on several areas making the greens even more slick. Tees , fairways and traps all well maintained. Nice clubhouse, and beverage cart made the rounds often on this 33C day. Will go back again.
