Not what it used to be

Charbonneau was the OGA 2017 Course of the Year. They boast it on a sign outside of the clubhouse. Knowing that it's an executive course will help for those who would otherwise complain about the short layout.

That being said, many of the tee boxes were more sand than grass. The greens had ben recently punched and de-thatched. There was no notice of this in or around the pro shop, nor in booking the tee time on Golf Now.

It plays short with many of the Par 4's drivable. It's a fun diversion for those who have accuracy in their back pocket. For those who struggle off the tee, or struggle to hit where they would like to go, don't be surprised if an angry homeowner comes out for some choice words. The course (all three nine-hole legs) are completely bounded by the houses of the Charbonneau District.

Executive course

It is a very simple course. Mostly retired people. The course difficulty is very low. Not recommended for serious golfers.

Slow pace.

Got a great deal to golf 18! However upon getting there I could tell it was busy busy busy. Once my tee time came I knew pace of play was gonna be terrible. Got stuck behind a group of four who didn’t seem to care much about time management. There were no Marshall’s driving around to make sure pace of play was being enforced, ultimately because of the slow pace I was only able to play 9. I started at 1pm! Should not have taken me 3 hrs to play 9. Kind of disappointed in that.

Doesn’t care about Covid or safety

Manager on duty didn’t tell us at check in about our pairing. We got blind sided at the tee box with another pair, we let them go ahead because of covid safety. As we’re right about to hit our approach shot, he pulled up and aggressively asks us why we didn’t play with the pair, I told them it was for our safety and covid. He said that wasn’t a good enough excuse.... escorted us back for a refund and told me it was our fault for not abiding by their pace of play rules. I mentioned he didn’t tell us anything about us getting paired like every other course does. He got defensive and said he did say it over the microphone. I didn’t want any excuses I just wanted him to apologize for making a mistake on not telling us. Him not caring about covid was also very alarming. I use to love this place and take all my friends here, tried taking my gf and this happened. Ruined my experience at this place. Manager needs to learn to talk to people even when he’s busy...
