The course was generally in good condition. The
layout was very acceptable with a number of fun
holes to play and a good mix of par 3's, 4's and
5's. The different holes require different key
shots. Sometimes it is the driver that is key
to the hole, while other times it is an approach
The food and service was very good. We saw the
beverage cart a number of times and the girl working
the cart was pleasant but not too talkative to
throw us off our game.
A new nine has recently been constructed (Doug
Carrick design) and the layout of the existing
18 holes has changed as a result. The newer holes
tend to be a little more wide open with fewer
trees (understandable). Water is in play on a
number of holes and is generally well placed and
fair. We did notice that a few of the sand traps
could use some additional attention (i.e. raking
by the grounds crew).
Overall, a good course that plays fairly but
slightly overpriced given location and overall
grooming of the course. There are a number of
$100 courses closer to Toronto in better shape
and better groomed.
Best Hole: #9 - The Lakes
Why: A good drive is important here as a very
large tree to the right and a significant pond
protect the landing area. The approach is equally
difficult as the green is long and narrow with
bunkers and water at the front right and left.
Putting your approach above the hole means you
have a really tough shot chipping into a downhill
green towards the water. Picturesque and challenging
at the same time. Accurate players will be rewarded!
