Good value, for a nice challenging par 3.

Golfing in the fall, this course had very few leaves on the fairways and greens because it didn't have very many trees around. Definitely recommend.

I play here quiet often and enjoy the course and practice centre. Course is always in amazing shape. Rates are reasonable for play and practice. I place this par 3 in the top 2 for the Ottawa area. I would recommend this course to a fellow golfer.

We have played this course about a dozen times. Great value with Golfnow hot deals.

Generally good pace of play. There is no Marshall anymore. This is okay as long as people are respectful.

ASSUMING YOU ONLY HAVE A LIMITED TIME, THIS COURSE IS A GREAT WAY TO EXERCISE AND WHILE IT IS A PAR THREE, A COUPLE OF THE HOLES ARE QUITE LONG AND A NUMBER ARE CHALLENGING WITH WATER OR BUNKERS AND, WITH THE LONG GRASS, WATER AND BUSHES, SOME ACCURACY IS NEEDED AND LENGTH IS NECESSARY.

I will be returning to this course as it is a diamond in the rough. The grounds are very well maintained and groomed. Sand was soft and fluffy. Only thing that I recommend is have better signage cheaper pull cart rentals.

Played here many times. It is short with not too big of a time commitment. Record year of rain has made conditions here green and plush. Always a pleasure to play golf here. The Bermuda sand is soo soft. Had a great friend to play with too.

Thanks,

WHILE IT IS PRIMARILY A PAR THREE COURSE, SOME OF THE HOLES A ON THE LONGISH SIDE AND OFFER A CHALLENGE ESPECIALLY FROM THE BACK (BLUE)

TEES. IT IS, AS WE DID, POSSIBLE TO GO ROUND THE NINE HOLES WALKING IN JUST OVER AN HOUR SO CHANCE FOR SOME EXERCISE WITHOUT TAKING TOO MUCH TIME. NOT A COURSE FOR A SERIOUS GOLFER BUT IT DOES REQUIRE A DEGREE OF ACCURACY AS THERE ARE SOME SERIOUS WATER AND ROUGH HAZARDS.

This is not really a "golf course" for seasoned golfers to enjoy a round , but more of a quality practice facilty.

Good for beginners learning the game or to practice pitching and putting for more experienced players. Beware that you may have to be patient with beginners and slower players . This appears to be a popular and appropriate venue for this category of player.

Fairways and greens are well maintained.
