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!

Worth the drive

Course is one of my favorites and if was closer to our home in Burlington we would play it a lot more.
Aiden the young man that works at the course in the pro shop was extremely friendly and very helpful Nice to see that at a golf course this time of the year.

Terrific course

Excellent tees, fairways & especially the tuff greens! The variety of tee blocks are outstanding! First time ever getting a flat tire on the buggy, mentioned to a greens staff & within minutes a new cart was brought out! Crazy British Open winds, but loved it!

Tarandowah Golfers Club

The course had been through quite a bit of rain. Unfortunately the staff don’t answer phones until after 9AM so was difficult to confirm whether power carts would be allowed. As it was we sucked it up and walked anyway. A number of the fairways were quite wet - as could be understood after quite a lot of rain. The greens drained very well so were rolling nicely. It was a nice day, a bit of rain, wind on a nice links course in southwest Ontario.

Just Don't Get It!

Golf courses run like this, will lead to a pandemic shutdown of all golf courses. They had ONE cart with a divider to provide separation from riders and they charged $35 for the cart.
I was last here in May, when they had had scads of golfers on their patio, no masks, no social distancing.

If you are concerned about Covid, this is not where you want to golf.

Decent course

A great layout and a good challenging course!!
The greens were in great condition and I would recommend this course !!
The only problem I would say were the tee boxes which were not very good!
But overall a great day out!

New Management is Clueless

I'm curious to know the legality of publishing coupons in the Passport or Golf Fore All books and not honouring them at the course due to "new management." I'm also curious to know how many golf courses- like Tarandowah- do not have a replay rate. Needless to say- I won't be returning to a course that I've played twice a year for the past decade because of the new management; I guess it's more important to have an empty golf course than have golfers pay less than full rate.
That being said, the course layout is still fantastic and the greens were in good shape; but the tee boxes were an unmitigated disaster and the cart paths were brutal. I supposed we could blame Covid for the poor conditions, but that might be excusing the "new management."
My recommendation: hire someone in the pro shop who isn't miserable. It might help if she didn't have to book tee times, collect green fees, sort out power carts, act as the starter, and marshal the course from the pro shop.

needs better management

new owners don't have a handle on this course yet. Lots of very thin grass and tight lies on the fairways makes for a very difficult round for most golfers who cannot pinch the ball.
I am not a fan of the tall grass on the top of bunkers. As if they are not penal enough, you have balls that get hung up on the downward slopes of these bunkers.in tall thick grass. It takes mean management to keep them like this.

Picturesque Golf for a Good Price

Absolutely love this course. Very well maintained, with perfect greens and tee boxes. Bunkers are well maintained also, considering there are over 100 of them. The staff cut down the fescue so you can find balls and even play them. I played for $35 and you cannot beat that value in the London area.

This is a tough course with fast green, come here to play your best golf.
