The greens were just aerated and top dressed, so rather slow. The par 3's are tough. Some challenging par 4's. Nice to walk and hit some shots.

I don't golf often. Found the course to in very good shape. Grass was green, fairways a little long but the rough wasn't that bad. Limited hazards, fairly flat. Greens are small. Clubhouse looks like it had seen better days. Gas golf carts inexpensive. Overall good experience.

This is a small 18 hole course around 4500 yds.. Ok for the price an easier than most courses except tricky water hazard and tree locations.. .

Not busy but it was a hot day for most people. I like it hot...

Some short par 4's (200+ yards) and par 5's (420+- yards) .

Have had a lot of rain so course will likely be dry in a normal season...

We arrived Sunday at 11am my wife and I to play a round.

It's been the hottest summer on record and the course conditions prove that. Can't tell where the fairway and rough splits cause they are in the same condition.

Very dry and hard surfaces, the course is in poor condition and needs lots of tlc.

The greens not so bad but very slow. Should be trimmed more.

There are courses out there for same price but much better conditions. The management people of the course should heed the warning and improve conditions before it's too late.

I wouldn't recommend this coarse to your regular golfer, however for someone who is starting for the first time would suffice.Poor layout and even dangerous tee locations drainage tires all over not a well maintained course at all. Won't ever play here again!

really poor conditions at this course. I wouldn't mind golfing here if I was from the area but if you are visiting Niagara Falls, there are plenty better courses around. We made the most of it and still had a good time. If you are a serious golfer, I don't know if you would appreciate this course. I really hate writing poor reviews, but even for a hot deal this place was a hot mess....

course is very straight forward..flat fairways but very dry fairways and greens..the bunkers are not very well maintained. extremely dry season so it is understandable that there is a lot of burnt fairways. even tho they have unlimited access to a stream on the course they do not water near as much as needed

Enjoyable, quick round. Fairways were not well defined but in good condition. Greens although small, ran true and in very good condition. A crowded layout in some parts with overlapping of fairways/tee boxes which makes for some potentially dangerous play. Essentially an executive course with a couple of legitimate par 4 holes (par 5's are really par 4's). Clubhouse is run down and doesn't seem to be staffed. Would recommend course for a beginner.

The course is in very poor condition, especially the fairways and tee boxes. Greens are slow but at list in better shape than the rest of the it.<br/> In defence to Water Park I would say that if you pay hot deal on Golf Now then may be you can play this course, otherwise I would not recommend it until some improvements with the facility will be made

Good value for the price. Fairways are a little rough but the greens are in good condition. I like to play a couple of times a week, but have no desire to take a membership anywhere. With so many courses in Niagara, I like to have the variety. So this is a great course to slip in mid-week at a lower price. Very enjoyable.

Not a bad little course, we were never rushed. The grounds keeping was a bit weak (bare areas, hard ground), but the greens were fair.

Couldn't beat the price! $16 with cart- is unreal!
