Back

Haven’t been there since last year when I was a frequent golfer
The price on GN was not as good as previous years so consequently I have not gone as last past years
Deals have not been as good
BUT greens are in much better shape

I’ll return
Perhaps not as often unless prices lower
I have gone to courses for 18 holes for not much more

Good 12 hole course

I think they have done a good job with this course. I prefer this 12 hole course over Crumlin Creek in London. Greens are nice and the layout is simple yet done well. Only downfall Is all the goose droppings around the holes near the water. If your using a cart then no worries. I reccomend this course for a nicencouple hours of golf.

Cost

It was definitely not worth 37 dollars for 12 holes. I felt like we were not told the correct price and the person working the pro shop said it was golf now that does the write up. I read all the s,all print and did not see anywhere indicating that the price was walking or that the cart was not included. I think it is up to the course to tell golf now how to write it up. I golf North America and have never been deceived on the price.

Pretty good

Staff was excellent. Lots of long grass to lose golfballs in. Thought a lot of that could be cut. Would make it much faster to play and more fun.

Would Not Play Again

Course was in terrible shape, grass not cut, greens no groomed. Dirt piles everywhere on greens. Some holes were closed. Terrible layout for a course, a very bad bad experience.

Decent value

Decent value for money. Got through first 6 holes in 1.5 hrs than a 40 min wait for the turn and 20 min wait between holes. We ended up leaving as rate of play was pretty much nonexistent and for no apparent reason. A little overbooked or tee times booked too close together perhaps.

Still a decent experience. Just maybe not the greatest on busy days.

There’s two golf courses in Dorchester?

Course was in ok shape other than geese droppings everywhere. I’ve never been here before and confused my booking with the other golf course located in Dorchester. I was disappointed it was only 12 holes and the holes were too close to one another. I was also disappointed I couldn’t purchase a golf glove.

Used cart

Dorchester Golf

Beautiful layout, however the course maintenance was not good at all.

Tee boxes were like shooting off cart paths and the greens were very rough and bumpy no chance for even a straight put.

Unfortunate as I would golf there again.

Used cart

Over 4 hours for 12 holes with a cart

You can book a tee time but it doesn't matter the pro shop just sends everyone out of the course.

There are a lot of beginners and slow players on the course which is fine. But there is no course marshal or anyone checking to make sure the groups are maintain a reasonable pace of play.

Pro shop does not care and is rude. There are other similar 12 hole courses in the area that are more organized.

Besides the terrible pace of play the course was well laid out and in good shape but 12 holes in 4 hours - I wont be back
