One of the better routings in the area. Impressed for my first time playing there. Didn’t see any Porto Johns on the course. Seemed like there was a mild bee infestation on the grounds of a couple holes. Otherwise a solid track. I’ll be making around trip back.
Challenging but fair
Greens are fantastic. It’s not hitting the ball, you have to actually stroke it. I’d recommend going to the puttting green before your round.
Off the tee... I wouldn’t say that it is 100% necessary to move the ball both ways but it is definitely to your advantage if you can. If you miss bad you’re gonna need your hooded 7 iron for the low punch out of the trees.
Into the green...if you can’t comfortably hit it Ski high, always land it short and let it bounce up...If there is no where to bounce it up...make sure not to short side yourself
Around the ground....work on your high soft shots...the ball hits hard and releases...soften the hands
I would definitely recommend this place.
Nice enough course. Was still a little snow and some standing water due to the time of year. Lot of people out playing so we waited on just about every shot. Would like to go back when it’s more “in-season” so I can get a better feel.
Good course, but a bit pricy compare to other golf courses
Green was good 4 star
Fairway was soggy and ball was not rolling 3 star
Practice range available for free 4 star
Enjoyed back 9holes more than front 9holes, because it was more challenging. Specially 10th hole over the water.
Fun to play, but a bit pricy.
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.
