General Comments:

What an experience! I managed to score a free round at the famed Devil's Pulpit, a very exclusive private facility about 45 minutes north of Toronto.

From the moment you pull up to the front gates, the feeling of prestige overwhelms you. I felt like I was driving up to Augusta or Pine Valley. The staff is ultra friendly and overall the whole facility is Grade "A".

The locker rooms are what one would expect from such a club; beautifully
decorated with all the amenities. I started off by hitting balls at the practice range. First class all the way with clearly marked greens and beautiful tee blocks.

The first hole is apparently one of the most photographed in Canada - clearly a result of the picturesque surrounds and awesome layout. The course was very well manicured and my only complaint was that the bunkers, filled with Ohio white sand, were not always raked by previous players.

The greens were lightning fast. I couldn't quite get the speed down and three putted four times. The rough was also very demanding as it was so thick. Chipping from the rough was just about out of the question.

The final hole is a demanding par four plays like a short par five. In fact, until this year it used to be a par five. I made a par after chipping in off the green which capped off an extremely enjoyable experience.

In summery, everything about The Pulpit is quality. The $50,000 initiation fee prevents me from ever becoming a member. However, I must say it rates as
one of the top courses I have ever played both in beauty and difficulty. Hopefully I'll get the chance one day to re-live the experience. Highly recommended.

Best Hole: #18
Why: 485 yard par 4. I got a par!

Overall rating : Excellent

Overall value: Good value
