The day we played the course was quite wet greens were in good shape but slow because of the wetness it’s a nice layout but would not play there again after a lot of rain
The course was excellent, the only issue was it would’ve been nice to be informed that the greens were aerated. Other than that the course was great.
fun course to play
the course offers quite a few challenges and it is in good condition. Greens are in great shape and fast. Slope of 128 from white markers is too low. A nice challenge.
Just full of nice surprises
Check in was a breeze and made better by being, unexpectedly directed to the practice area(does not show on listing)...irons and mid woods...no driving per se...chipping, sand, putting...what a joy to find this extra value...the course, was in tip top shape and would be an easy walk...not too much shade though and can help those with the slice/hook tendency...greens fast and true(just do look for the high points of each green and putt toward it whenever possible)...just a nice course...would and will look forward to playing here again...
Really enjoyed the round. Great course, fun layout, cool landscape and excellent greens.
Ok track. Horrible food and serious
Ok conditions. I played as a single and felt rushed by the double behind me, due to members not allowing me to play through. I decided to grab some food afterwards and waited over half an hour for a burger. When it finally it came, I received something microwaved. Hard to even call it a burger. It was disgusting. Ok course but there service and food makes it hard to come back.
Greats Golf Course
Great Course, greens are some of the best I’ve played. Nice little practice area. Clubhouse needs a facelift. They had a fire in the restaurant since I last played, which is unfortunate because the restaurant seemed newer.
A Real Golf Challenge
I used to drive by Halifax all of the time but never thought about playing the course. I was pleasantly surprised by it.
We played the blue tees, which was 6700 yards. That is longer than I am used to but there is a lot of room to keep it in play despite narrow fairways.
Not every hole is a driver hole, but will still demand a long second shot in. There also seemed to be a bunker on the left side at about 240-250 yards. This is problematic for a lefty hitting a cut.
The approach shots were more than fair which is good because they were often with mid to long irons. The par 3s were also long, one being 222 yards that day.
The greens are in really good shape. They are receptive but fast and sloped. Hills and grain matter. We all really struggled with speed.
This course could certainly be a good tournament prep/host. Some of the amateur events I play in bring about the same problems I had here.
Great Value, beautiful course
Halifax Country Club is a private course with some public tee times. I have played there a few times in the past year. Immaculate tee boxes, greens and beautiful fare ways. They give you free practice balls and supply water bottles around the course. Walking nine holes is $20. This is the best walking deal on the south shore. Highly recommended.
Excellent layout challenging for all levels of experience different tees to tear each level of experience. Only found the green side traps could use softer sand otherwise the course is in pristine
Condition and The staffIs very Accommodating . The longe and restaurant shanks is above average
First time to CCoH on Friday: terrific conditions, complementary range balls, chipping/putting area, 4 hour round, challenging layout requiring good tee shots. Definitely will return.
Come for the golf, not for the staff
The golf course is a good solid test of ball striking from the tips and the greens roll true. Of the 3 staff employees I encountered only the ranger would smile and say hello. Pro shop guy took my money and said - have a good one before the register even closed. Repeated it when I didn’t walk away right away. Starter who knew we weren’t members just said 4 hours when we teed off.
I’m spending my hard earned money to play golf, be a little friendlier.
Didn’t stay for food or drink after.
An Absolute Gem
Best deal all year. Great range included with your greens fee. Excellent layout, challenging yet playable. Tough greens. Overall was in great shape. Clubhouse is older but has what you need! Definitely going to make my way back there as much as possible.
I Had Never Even Been In Halifax Before
First time I have played CC of Halifax and won"t be the last. Very nice course, with beautiful greens and fairways, rock stepped tee boxes, tree lined fairways and nice , trimmed shrubbery all through the course. Every course is extremely difficult for this soon to be 66 year old golfer. With slope ratings of 122 Gold, 127 White and 130 Blue it's plenty of course for anybody.Plenty of different, interesting holes with nice sand in the bunkers a few really nice water holes.. I highly recommend this course and will play it again. The staff were super nice. Put this one on your To Play list. Make sure you check out Shanks Restaurant after your round.
