Nice course. Great value.

Course is in great shape. Very well maintained. Some of the cart paths are a little rough but I walked so it wasn't an issue for me. Would definitely recommend this course if you haven't already played here.

Amazing course improvements.

I'm amazed what the new management did to become more exciting golf Course, new bunkers & the good condition of the greens. Cart paths still need some improvement.

We waited st every hole.

I book this through Golf Now and I didn’t realize there was no cart. They charged me $40.00 for a cart - outrageous.

Nice Changes

Played this course. when it was called Whitetail several times. Now taken over by Cardinal group. Tees and greens have big improvements in them. Fairways need some work and cartpaths are very bad. Course is plrasure to play though and nice test of golf. Nice mixture of holes. Enjoyed my round at very good value price.

A tough challenge

Very technical course, tons of water and hazards. Great conditions, best bunkers I've played in Ontario. You'll need all of your clubs to be successful.

Great Value

This course was in excellent condition and beautiful. A few holes were a little wet but not enough to discourage me from playing there again very soon.

Very poor drainage - course saturated with water

This course has the potential to be beautiful but the drainage is awful. No power carts allowed due to swampy conditions - I wish I had known before I booked because it was a difficult walk in soggy conditions. The course is still under construction and I won’t be coming back until I know that it’s in better condition.

Vastly improved!

This course was previously known as Whitetail, I had played it a few years ago and found the course to be less than average. The course is now called Cardinal 18 and is greatly improved! The conditions were wonderful, fairways were well taken care of and the greens were in great shape.

Hot weather

Great Value

Hot summer day. Course is two distinct nines. The old course is a mostly open back nine with the new course being a tighter, tree lined front nine. Most holes have water in play off of the tee. Fairway and green side bunkers have excellent, soft white sand, not found in a lot of more expensive tracks. Being such a hot dry summer, my only complaint were some tight, dry lies in some spots. Looking forward to it maturing over time.

Great improvement

Course is being well maintained. Current progress in removing Allen limbs, clearing of forest floor have definitely assisted in quicker round. Needed asap - major work on cart path - very bad condition.

Good Deal

The course is much improved from a couple of years ago. Fairways, greens, sand traps in excellent shape. Interesting enough layout. Greens running very true and presenting some challenge. Clubhouse facilities pretty basic, but of no concern to me. Looks like they're still working on improving cart paths and aesthetics, but again, the course is much improved over what it was the year before last.
