Poor conditions

Needs attention. Tee boxes have little to no grass, with tree roots exposed on some boxes. Fairways are soggy, yet no rain recently that I’m aware. Greens are full of ball marks and some have dead spots. It has potential.

Great value

This course has had its ups and downs over the years but it now is in fairly good shape with quickish greens. Fairways are sparse in spots but improving. Some fairways have been narrowed, a good improvement. Great bang for the buck.

Northdale Golf good winter conditions

Nice conditions this time of year. Summer conditions on this course is less desirable, because the drainage is not very good during the rainy season. It’s a long course and it is laid out well, greens are in good condition, but they are sloped.

Pace of play

I’m sure it’s not always like that but I played a 6 hour round, estimating 15 min waiting at each tee box.

Good times

This course is always a good time and in above average condition. Love playing here. Only negative thing to say is the pace, but that’s expected.

Too Many Twosomes

Enjoyed the course, greens were very quick but consistent from green to green. Starter needs to join groups, although we joined another twosome on our own, they ended their round after 9 holes. Starting on 10 we played behind 6 groups of two, brutal. The starter instead of joining groups, send twosomes out on both sides to try and keep pace.

5hr Round. Good Course, Not Good Starter Management

We enjoyed the course, greens were fast and held approach shots. The Starter refused to make foursomes, kept sending out 2-somes. He even offered us to start on 10 because there were 3 twosomes ahead of us on 1. We went to 10 and found 4 twosomes waiting. We went back to 1 and asked to join a twosome. The guys we joined were great and they started on 10 and finished on 9. When we started the back we found 6 twosomes on the back ahead of us, it's where they started,#10, instead of #1..what a mess, 5 hr round.

Nice Sunday at the Golf Course

The Greens were really good, quick.
The starter was very friendly and accommodating!
Long course, even from the white tees, enjoyable.

Nice layout but

Silverthorn has a nice layout and the staff is friendly and helpful but the fairways are in poor condition. Some of the greens are in good shape others not so much..The price is very reasonable but the course needs work.
