Worst course ever

There was nothing good about this course. We got a “hot deal” on golf now. It could have been worse, had we paid regular price. “A real cow pasture” at best. . Don’t waste your time or money.

Course layout is not bad . But course conditions are really bad.

I bought from golf now 18holes. But that course is only 12holes. We’re 1.30hrs driving from Toronto. Nobody wants long distance trip for 12holes. Unfortunately we don’t have choice. So embarrassing!! We should extra paid for more play. GolfNow should be right information. Pls…

Walked

Finding the 10th hole was challenging without a course map or enough/appropriate signage. It's across the parking lot near the front of the resort, after you pass under a tunnel (hence 3 star course layout). Otherwise the course is fun.
