Last Round at WGA
My 9 year old son attended golf camp here earlier this year and we’ve played here twice since. Sunday October 1,2017 was the last day of operation as it is being torn down for commercial development. Always sad to see a golf course close but even harder when it holds special memories.
Last time playing Waterloo Golf Academy
The course was in very poor shape. I don't think that
Golf North has done a bit of maintenance this year other than cutting the grass once in while. Greens, traps and fairways were full of weeds.
The only thing harder than the greens were the traps.
Soon Gone! I Will Miss Waterloo Golf Academy
I will miss Waterloo Golf Academy, I have enjoyed playing it many times over the last 20 years. But alas, the course will close at season's end.
Yesterday, I played as well as I have played all season. It was sunny and warm and I joined another Larry for the 9 holes after hitting some balls on the range which was included in my fee. Although maintenance of the course has lagged, it was a fun outing.
Maybe, just maybe I get one more round before I wish the course a fond goodbye.
When we arrived Bruce would not honor our golf cart which was included in the golfnow deal he was very rude and unprofessional and simply said if we didn't like it we could leave and it has been very poorly maintained this year the planned housing development will actually be an improvement save your money and go somewhere else
Not bad for a quick 9 holes
Hot deal price is great. The course was not being maintained well up until recently, but it's getting better. If you want to play a quick nine, and maybe hit a large bucket of balls, this is a great deal.
Gem in Waterloo
Great fun with some challenge as well. Sorry to see you go !
A beginner's course
Waterloo Golf Academy is a good little track for beginner golfers or someone teaching a beginner golfer. The driving range and chipping area has always been a plus for this little course however the t deck for the driving ranged looked like it hadn't been moved in almost a week. Not much grass in each box. The greens were in good shape but were really slow. Management made it obvious that they were trying to save greens by keeping them long through current dry spell. Fairways were also very dry. All bunkers were hard packed. You couldn't even rake them. The third hole (par 3) was missing red, white and black tee blocks. The 8th hole was missing yellow tee blocks. This is a low level Golf North Course that spends little money in it's upkeep.
Stick to the driving range and practice area. Golf North has stopped investing any money into this course knowing it's short term life before the lease expires. Worst course I've played.
