Great links course not in the UK

This is an excellent version of true links golf with pot bunkers, firm fairways and wispy fescue. The greens putted very well and some local knowledge is needed on some holes to take advantage of them fully. Overall a fun and challenging experience in playing links golf. We played on a day with winds gusting to 45-50 kmh so it really made it feel authentic. Be sure to play tees that lean toward being shorter than your normal course if it is windy. Overall very enjoyable and I am playing again in a week’s time.

Great track

It has been a few years since I have played here, very much enjoyed playing this links style golf course. It played firm and fast just like it should. Will be back soon.

Test your game

Tarandowah is unlike any course in the area, with fast hard fairways lined with fescue focus is on hitting fairways, missing pot bunkers which like true links style courses are an automatic stroke penalty.
Blind shots and undulating greens place premium on distance control and imagination of shots.
If the wind is up, which is often, this adds the extra dimension which makes this course a must play for anyone who truly wants to test their game on a different type of golf course.

A fun and challenging course to play

We started on time and finished in four and a quarter hours. The fairways were hard and similar in playing conditions to other courses in the area. Greens were in good condition but there were too many unrepaired ball marks.

Friendly staff greeted us before and during our round. The Starter offered us a free basket of range balls and a course guide. Much appreciated. A refreshment cart passed our group multiple times during the round. Picked up food at the 10th tee.

Looking forward to teeing it up again at Tarandowah.

a good links course

in a gusty and sunny afternoon, we played 4some at this course. It says there are over 108 bunkers at the course, the fairway was dry and hard, the green was faaaaast.

The proshop was very friendly and helpful .

The only thing I can see an improvement is the amenities and the club house, it can use some renovation.

Great shape tough greens.

Course was green but rough was a bit more over grown than normal. Went on the long weekend with family and found the pin placements very difficult and close to the edge of the greens on a lot of the holes (felt like the holes were setup for a professional tournament). Find the price to play this course fairly expensive considering it does not have a proper clubhouse or dining facilities. No ball washers at any of the holes and tee off markers were not clearly identified or were missing. Overall the course was in good shape and greens were fast and firm.

Great layout.

This course is a real challenge. Choose your decks wisely. The greens here are fantastic. Very playable course but when the wind is up, it's a whole different game. Not your average course here. Requires thought every shot. Love this place. Just wish it was a little closer to my home but worth the drive from Kitchener.

RANKED 40?

A good course but ranking is way too high. Nearby Otter Creek is a better course. They have tons of traps but should have a machine to work them as having patrons doing it has just as much chance as most who do not repair divots. Greens are tough, not to many flat spots.

Challenging Track for a 35 handicap.

Great tracks for tournament .. unfortunately a bit too much bunkers for intermediate player like me. Long track with very little giveaways.. Great conditions on starters, fairway and greens were in best shape I’ve seen this season.
Had a good day, not happy about my score and definitely challenge my sand box skills loll..

Great staff, thank you!
