Slow Pace

Tee off times are a way too congested, they should be more time between each one. There where always three groups ahead that we had too wait for as the tee times are too close together. The course is is good shape, the staff very helpful and courteous and scenery beautiful, but because of the slow pace not sure we would go back.

First Time Playing

Really disappointed with how overgrown the fringe was and how brown the ‘greens’ were. I fully recognize this is a cheap public course so you get what you pay for. Won’t likely play here again.

Rough

The rough grass is a bit too long and hard to find balls there. Great course though.

Don’t go on weekends

Have played the curious 9 hole before. Never had to wait 10 minutes between holes. Could have played an 18. Won’t be back for some time.

Has dropped off over the years

A bit disappointing that the city has let their golf courses get to this state.

Recently they closed River Road, arguably one of their best kept courses, and now Thames has become overrun.

The 9 holes played just shy of 3 hours, while there are plenty of Covid Measures - altered cups instead of ball caddies, an unfriendly staff member asking if you’ve been out of the country, the act of turning off all running water on the course in 33 degree heat, etc...It seems all of this was pointless as they’ve only spaced their groups by 10 minutes.

At times we had 9 people waiting to tee off at the same box.

The fairways and greens are in really rough shape, and while this is a great place to get a cheap round on the books. You’d be better served spending you $20 elsewhere

Good 9 Holer

Course is in very good condition. Greens are smooth and hold approach shots well. Without physical limitations , this one would be a pleasant walk.

Cute. Layout

Short 9 holer. Good variety in the layout. Take your full bag as you can use them all.Greens a little firm, tough to hold them from beyond 60 yards out . Lots of slope on greens and lightning fast so down hillers kill lots of par attempts.
