Beautiful Views

Great course. A good challenge from the blues (double diamond at this course). Greens were in good shape, a little slow. Absolutely stunning views of the lakes, with hole 6 having an amazing tee shot. Fescue provided interesting shots of you happened to miss the fairway. Very friendly staff, good food. Will absolutely play again!

Cape Breton Golf at its finest

Excellent layout. Beautiful views.

Greens need to be speeded up. I would play it again and recommend to my friends.

For visitors, this would be an excellent course to put in a four course rota for Cape Breton Golf.

Play again

Overall good course. Very hilly terrain between holes but holes were undulating but fair. Good condition overall. Would recommend a cart due to the long hilly treks between holes, but a group behind us walked and were able to maintain pace of play. Best course around the Sydney area.

The Lakes

The course is in pretty good shape. There were a couple of soggy spots. The greens are still a little slow. I couldn't believe it was $8.00 for a sandwich. Good sandwich though.

Nicely laid out course

Need to stay on the fairway as the rough is very rough. A little hilly so I would recommend a cart.

One of the best courses on the island.

I've played this course on several occasions and in my opinion it is one of the best courses in Cape Breton. The greens are are in mid season fourm while other courses greens are way behind. The course offers a variety of holes and differences in elevation. Great staff and facilities. A little pricey when paying full fairs but there are plenty of deals out there if you keep searching.

nice track

This is a very nice course and considering the winter they had the fairways and green were in good shape. Reasonable pricing at the turn and very friendly at the halfway house. Pace of play was a little over four hours which made it enjoyable.

Character

Awesome course.. Played it the first year it opened and went back 3 years later knowing that if it grew in, it would go to another level.. did not disappoint. Tough course for the average golfer, really have to keep your ball in play and hit shots to avoid blow up holes. Signature hole, hitting down from the top of the mountain to a very big landing area makes it enjoyable for all golfers because it gives you a chance to no matter what, enjoy watching your ball fly down the mountain.
