Old Course

Course was in good shape very slow play on front nine no marshalling. Greens in good condition once you fixed the ball marks.

Little gem

First time playing and I really enjoyed it. Not too long so it wasn't defeating. Is tight so you can't be spraying the ball everywhere, but is also forgiving if you are only off a little. Nicely priced, will definitely be back.

Mediocre Course, Not Maintained, Great staff

Not a well maintained course. Staff very friendly. Had no food at 4pm on a Sunday.

All in all, won't come back.

Nice short course, layout a little confusing

Came to hack it up at the old course in Ancaster on Saturday. Beauty course, very friendly staff, great course to walk. The only concern I have is, if we weren’t playing with guys that have played here before, we would’ve been lost on a few holes. There is a bit of a walk to a couple of holes, so it’s nice to know where you’ve gotta wheel the cart. The guys we played with were great, so we had no issues. Overall, a great place to play.

Goood course

Need to marshal better. Pace was horrible, we couldn’t finish the last two holes based on timing. There was one home where we waited 20 minutes to play. Overall beautiful course, nice greens and staff were friendly.

Lovely forest setting

Old growth forest provides welcome shade in heat of the summer. Plenty of dog legs and elevation changes. There are a few patchy areas in and around tee boxes and on fairways that need attending but nothing serious. All in all, great value for the price and a welcoming atmosphere.

Beautiful day

The course is a great course for hitting your irons nice tight fairways. And a very scenic course. Par 5’s are reachable in two and greens are in good condition. Great little challenging course. Highly recommend trying the old course
