Some like it tough, and for them there is St. Andrew's. This immaculate course is as beautiful as it is challenging, with water coming into play on 14 holes, and wickedly undulating greens. Called "One of the five best public courses in Ontario" by Score magazine - and simply "Canada's toughest golf course by others - St. Andrew's prides itself on being a real player's course, designed and managed by avid golfers.

Green Aeration Notice/Alert

GolfNow need to work with courses to post green aeration notice/alert. For the (regular) amount charged, I would have chosen other courses.

Fantastic conditions considering the greens were recently aerated.
Challenging yet very fun course to play. Will definitely book another round.

No Marshal, Full of Hackers

First, they didn't account for a standard fall day and fell behind twenty minutes because of frost. It was 18 degrees on Sept 30th, no excuse not to plan for that. Once we finally got on the round took 5 hours+. Tons of hackers on the course, and it is a tough track. No marshal to be seen all day. Terrible management, but really a very nice course

Worth a visit!

Aside from a few tee decks that need some work, overall conditions of the course were immaculate. The only downside to playing St. Andrews Valley is the stench from the plant beside the course.
…but as long as you can get past the raunchy smell on 5 or 6 holes, you won’t be disappointed with the overall experience. Certainly worth a look if you’ve never been.

This a challenging course especially with the pin placements

I didn’t appreciate the group in front of us twice going back to the prior hole to look for clubs without finishing the hole they were on causing even further delays.

The rate I paid was for walking. I aid extra for a cart and am glad I did. Fairly tough course that I would play again.
