Northdale Golf Club

Northdale is a good track, needs some TLC but over all it is a good value. Staff is great and the new carts are great
First and last time playing here. Paid over $100 to play, they paired us with a 4th person and refused to give our 3rd his own cart. He had to ride with a stranger. The management just kept telling me how they make NO MONEY from the Golf Now app and that's why? No clue! Course was in horrible shape, greens were dry and CHUNKY. I'll spend the exrra few bucks for a course that's worth it.
Course going downhill
Course needs a lot of work. Fairways have large areas where there is little to no grass, some greens have large areas of no grass.
I have played this course consistently for @20 years. Just came back from 2 months away so I have not played it since last April and I could not believe how bad it had gotten. Something is very wrong here and I hope they can put it back to the way it was cuz it is a great golf course. If you played The Claw in the last 5 years, this is not quite that bad, so I'd call it The Paw.
Northdale has a lot to come up to as far as the course conditions, but access is always good and the staff and value are great.
greens need work
Greens in poor shape no digits on green fixed /sand traps are as hard as a rock could only use a puter to get out.No real out of bounds markers Course has not ever changed Holes are always the same its time for a change with this course.
Surprisingly Bad Conditions
It had been about a year since I played here and the conditions were worse than when I stopped coming here a year ago. Greens are like pool tables... hard as a rock and don't hold incoming shots. Aprons, especially in front of the greens were hard, baked, sand and clay.
Greens had been sanded but not smoothed out and there were sand piles everywhere. This course has an interesting layout and it's too bad the ownership will not invest in making it a nice course. I may try again in a year or two. In the meantime I cannot recommend playing here.
Overall the course is in good shape then you get to the GREENS (now to be fair it looks like they are trying to repair them) lots of bad spots and quite a few repairs. Still I will book this course again !
Worst course I’ve ever played
Easily the worst maintained course I’ve ever played. Zero grass around the greens, fairways are either dead or dirt. Save your money and go to another course trust me
Perfect play layout is great not that many issues enjoy the course for the money
We usually look forward to playing Northdale. The layout is both challenging and forgiving. Each hole has its own unique characteristics and are not forced to conform to the available space. However, this was the first time that we all felt the greens and fairways were in poor condition. Sandy and bare spots on the greens made for an unsatisfying experience. Finding grass consistently on the was fairways even more frustrating.
There getting the course back in shape
You can see the improvements being made. The course is starting to get better. The new superintendent is doing a great job to bring the golf courses back to its old days.
