Improvements

Some of the tees were closed because of new sod, which was much needed. It would be nice to have some decent grass on the fairways.
Greens were aerated and sanded, hopefully the winter will be kind to them.

Great day , great weather

I had the pleasure of golfing with Clark the course manager, learned a lot about the course over the past 20 yrs and some background of the area. He was very knowledgeable of any questions I had about green care , course upgrades coming , work load in the off season .. and oh yea we golfed a good game as well
Can’t wait till spring to start all over again.. cheers to all.

Best Challenge in the South Bruce

There are only 4 courses in this area around Sauble Beach - this one, Sauble Golf, Southampton and the Club at Westlinks. This is the most challenging for the serious golfer, with the expansive layout, bunkers fescue and sand. This track suffers from a lack of water, making the fairways like tabletops and the greens like pool tables. Still, it’s a long fun ride with plenty of obstacles challenging shot-making. We return here 4 times each summer, and are never disappointed by conditions, pace of play and value for money.
