General Comments:

This course is set in a valley with nice holes out and nine holes back to the clubhouse. Considering what Michael Hurdzon had to work with, he did an awesome job. Water is definitely in play on 17 of the 18 holes and the fescue and rough make execution paramount on your way around the course.

For such a high price we were disappointed that there were only mats on the driving range and that there was very little room for each person to warm up prior to their round. This being said the course itself was really well manicured and the pro shop service was excellent.

A nice perk is that the club uses GPS on their carts so that you always have very accurate yardage to either the hazards or the different areas of the green.

Note that this course is largely about 'target golf' and club selection is extremely important. You may not use every club in your bag but the ones you do use will need to be accurate if you plan on scoring well. Bring lots of extra balls on account of the water and fescue.

Remember to duck on the third green as planes landing at the nearby Toronto International Airport seem close enough to hit with a good nine-iron shot. Very loud too.

Truly a hidden gem and easily accessible from anywhere in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area).

Best Hole: #16
Why: An excellent par 4 where a well-placed tee shot will set up a short to mid approach to a massive green amidst lots of water short and left

Overall rating : Good

Overall value: Good value
