The day after 4 inches of rain
Had a good time, balls were sticking and plugging everywhere but still had a great time. Try to play this course at least once a year....
Pre-paid reservation not honoured
Pre paid 4some with cart included and as soon as walked up staff met me to tell me that there would be no carts that day. No reimbursement or anything offered as they said was booked through golf now so nothing was possible
Fun course to play. Semi challenging holes. Easily walkable course. I think the cart rate is a little expensive, my friend and I paid $21 each to share one cart.
Nice day at Windermere
Fabulous weather; course was in great shape. Golfs in my group ranged from 50s to 80s. Course has something for everyone.
Thanks to Will for being so accommodating. He's the best!
Windermere somehow captures the feel of a cottage country course and a private country club. The course is in beautiful condition and is great value mid week. The par 4s are lengthy but the 5s can be birdied with good shot making. The design with tees and greens more accessible by cart allow for faster play. The course has a much more relaxing feel than some of the monster Muskoka courses. We will return.
Good place to play 18, old style course with small greens. The course was dry when I played there. Greens were slow but it is early in the year.
Great place to play
Course was in really nice shape. Best we've ever seen. Good pace of play. We'd play it again any time
Very pretty course, but would not go back.
My wife and I arranged a last minute trip to Windermere, as much for the drive as anything. We have actually played the course before, but I think since I retired, my memory is beginning to fail. Should not have gone back! The course is actually laid out incredibly strangely. Many adjoining fairways, which make for dangerous conditions! Also many tees incredibly close to other tees,as well as greens. Very dangerous, as well as making it difficult to tee off while someone else is teeing near you! On a positive note, if you are interested in gardening, this course probably has the most incredible gardens we have ever seen!! A million hours have been spent building gardens everywhere! Nice job!
Won't be back however.
beautiful old resort course
straight forward older type wide open course, no island green gimmicks.
Like stepping back in time
This course is what I imagine golfing 50 years ago was like, but in a good way. Well maintained, fairly narrow. Very picturesque. Greens are rolling and challenging.
The changes were well done. Course is in excellent condition.
the landscaping is amazing
what a nice course. rained in the am , but we golfed in dry conditions. then poured on the 18th hole.
we loved it . fabulous scenery .
Despite a rainy start, the sun came out for the back nine. Great track, weather made it a bit sloppy but overall in very good condition. No refreshment carts but available at the turn. Well worth the price!
Beautiful Day Up North
I chose to play Windermere partly to add another notch to my Stanley Thompson designed courses belt. I was treated to an excellently conditioned course, that though not long by todays standards was quite challenging due to its elevation changes, narrow fairways, strategically placed bunkers and small greens. The layout with respect to rock outcroppings is not as dramatic as some other Muskoka courses. The property does lack a driving range. (Net provided instead.) I'll be back for a rematch.
We played when most tourists have gone home so the course was mostly empty. This is a well laid out course, the greens where in excellent shape with many subtle breaks, and the fairways where cut and in excellent shape. We played in under 3 hours, had a refreshment and a shower and left after being there for only four hours. I wish I could play golf like this more often. The staff where extremely helpful and we can't wait to play again.
