Great course, great value!
We had a wonderful outing today at Cardinal. Great greens and apron. Likewise the the fairways. The bunkers were poor but, with no rakes, we assume they will be ship-shape in the near future. The shorter yardage is a boon to those who love to walk, especially seniors. Lots of challenges though for the golfer.
course is in good condition especially since grounds keeper has had very little time to prepare for play.
My only complaint would be the rough on the sides of the fairways should be shorter as balls just disappear.
Staff are always great and the course is fun to play
This was our first time playing this course, we had a foursome. The weather was perfect. We got a Hot Deal from Golf Now for $25 each for 18 with a cart. The course is a little challenging but the greens even more so!! We had a great day and finished it off with lunch at the clubhouse which was delicious...Will definitely go back.
Grass cutter stole my ball
I was off to a great round I was paired with a wonderful twosome who were great golfers too boot. I enjoy this course and would highly recommend it to anyone but upon writing the review I was reminded of the one incident that spoiled my round I had a good front nine and was teeing off on the 11th when I pushed my drive right of the fairway I was playing a Callaway bold yellow ball so I can track and find it easier and a grass cutter picked up my ball let me walk up and down the rough four times before I made eye contact stared him down and asked him if he had picked up my ball as we had seen his tractor stop and sure enough he had my ball in his jacket pocket he gave it back and said you were by the second bunker and we were like what and looked at each other completely astounded. I was playing a very great round and enjoying the company and it’s spoiled that hole and the next two as we were all kind of sour as we could not believe that someone employed a golf course would pick up someone’s ball no knowing that that’s a major faux pas!
A great course but dont let the par 67 fool you. It has a lot of challenges ponds bunkers lots of tree trouble. Greens were nice and well kept but very fast and challenging but that's good right? All around this is a great course and I will definitely return.
Great course however
Love playing here and have played many other courses but I seem to come back here because I love the course however some of the staff are miserable. We will now go back and play riverview pay a little more but you are treated with friendly staff!!
September Golf in Canada
Sparrow is one of our favourite small courses. Quite a lot of rain in the past while and the course was very wet. Under the circumstances the course was in great shape and we thoroughly enjoyed our round. We try to play Sparrow a few times a season and based on our last experience we plan on playing there again next year
looking for a shorter course to play which is challenging,you found it.
Pace of Play...
I really enjoy this golf course, but, on this day, everyone was teeing off on the 'back 9', and we were waiting on every hole due to the backup. I was told by an employee that they did this to 'mix it up' for the older golfers that usually only play the front 9 holes... we were playing 18 holes, and could have had a more enjoyable round had it been faster.
nice course nice day
We played here for the first time, and thoroughly enjoyed the course, very short but in pristine condition, the only kick was that we had a ton of rain between 6 and 8am that morning, and the course was very wet.I talked to a friend at work who lives in Welland and ha told me they have always had drainage issues there so that is something to keep in mind, otherwise fairways are beautiful, greens are beautiful, a very nice day indeed.
A fun and challenging shorter course that lends itself well to walking.
This course has nice features, challenging holes for the mid to high handicap player, is scenic and well maintained. A very pleasant round of golf.
Not bad for the price
The course is decent but there’s no map so dogleg holes were a bit difficult to to tee off on. Also difficult to identify where water hazards were. Conditions were pretty good - some wet areas. Course is mostly flat and shorter than many. Made for a good round.
