Bad starter alignment of golfers

Course is always a joy to play

It was very busy with back to back 4-somes but starter decided to plop a 2-some ahead of us. We ended waiting on every shot.

Overall course in great shape

Slow pace

We have played this course for many years several times each year, however the pace of play at 4.45 min is unacceptable and as well the greens were in poor shape. We would have to think twice on playing this course again.

KW Must play

Looking to play in Kitchener-Waterloo area? Don't miss out on this municipal golf course that runs along the shores of the Grand River. Interesting layout, memorable holes, 4 tee boxes and superior conditioning.

Greens in poor condition

The greens were in very poor condition. The sand was like it was brought in from a local beach with lots of rocks. Golf north has officially ruined many local courses in this region.

The course was in really good condition.

Conditions were good. Finished the round in a relaxed pace in 3 and 1/2 hours.

Pleasurable experience.

nice challenge

I would have scored the course higher except that the greens were aerated and we were not informed before hand, therefore it was a little tricky putting because it was not true. The rest of the golf course was in really condition and all of the staff that I interacted with were very friendly and helpful.

Grey silo golf course

We were very disappointed with the condition of the course. Grey silo golf course had just aerated the greens and the greens were unputtable. Totally ruined our round. They also had no marshallers on the coures and the pace was extremely slow on a very hot muggy day. I feel that Golf now should have informed us that the greens had been aerated at Grey silo because we would never have booked the course. I feel totally mislead. I think I should be refunded my money. Not happy with golf now or Grey silo.

Bunkers

Terrible bunker rule that you are to pick up your ball, rake a nice spot, put you ball down, and don't rake the bunker after your shot. The bunkers are full of stones and are not consistent throughout the course. Would expect better considering the price. Greens are nice though.

Grey Silo

One of my favourite courses to play in the Waterloo area. It has a great layout that is challenging and rewarding. The sand traps were under repair as they work to add additional sand. I hope they don't cheap out on the sand. Nothing worse than playing a sand-trap with no sand. :)

Hot day needed more beverage carts

We played 36C, humidex 46C. Teed off in the morning to avoid the worst of the heat. The coffee shop was not open before tee off so we couldn't buy drinks and the pro shop had a cooler but didn't advise that was the only place to get fluids for the front nine. We drank all the liquids we brought with us, and by 7th hole were a bit worried. The marshall radiod and reported the beverage cart had gone out on the back nine. He kindly got a bottle of water from the halfway house. We restocked there. Bring your own water from home.
