Always Fun

Great little warm up 9 hole course. 6 par 3's of varying length, one par 5 and two par 4's. Pace of play was amazing- at one point I think we were the only ones out there on a Friday morning.

Historic course that will be shutting down.

Spotswood is a great 9 hole course. A Robert Trent Jones course, updates by Rees Jones. Hilly and woody with very small greens. We booked a 7:40 tee time and were almost the only ones on the course. Pro shop super friendly and helpful. Unfortunately it’s been sold to developers so get it while you can. The club will still have the Gold and Green courses but a losing a nice historic gem.

1st Timer

A fun course to play, especially for new golfers, seniors and anyone with only 2 hours to play. It’s a nine hole course that you can play 18 by using different T boxes.
Play while you can before this course goes away!!

Not worth the drive.

After driving 40 miles I was disappointed with the layout of the golf course. In my opinion the golf course is set up for seniors or kids. The next time I drive 40 miles , I will be playing the Gold course.

A lot of fun

Great little course. Challenged my short game and provided the opportunity to work my long game without having tobe on the course for hours. Play was continuous and the people very friendly. Good place to go for a quick game.

Fun executive layout with a lot of variety

Spotswood plays adjacent to the Gold Course at Golden Horseshoe and is a fun nine holes for the whole family with a couple par 4s and a par 5. That isn't to say this course is easy, as there are some tricky shots to small, elevated greens. The property is gorgeous, though a little less dramatic than the Gold and very laid back.

It's probably overdue for a slight refresh as the greens have grown very small and we had a hard time finding one of the holes. But the bones are here. Better players can have some fun shaping shots on the two dogleg par 4s, and the greens are very small, so you need to be precise.

It's a great twilight option for the whole family in a destination that's all about family fun. Part of the Gold refresh meant expanded practice facilities and a refreshed clubhouse so be sure to take full advantage.
