Only one issue

Several of the tee boxes were torn up but the rest of the course was in great shape. The patio was open, the patio staff were friendly and efficient.

Great Value

The course is in excellent condition. It has a fun layout that is moderately challenging. The only criticism is that they have no dividers in the carts during covid.

Never disappoints

The greens and fairways are in remarkably good condition considering how early it is in the season. This course will only improve as the season progresses.

Best in the area

We have been renting a cottage in Grand Bend for the last couple of years and can always count on Widder for the best best for your time and money.

From the time you pull in and check in the staff is friendly and helpful.

Course conditions impressed me with the lack of rain we have had this summer. The renovated bunkers were excellent to play out of.and greens held and rolled nicely.

All around well earned 5 stars, no complaints here, we'll be back and playing again this week and for years to come.

Thanks for great vacation memories Widder Station.

What a Deal!

Wanted to take my son out ... only his second time on a real course. Didn't catch anyone 'til the 11th, and we weren't pressured from behind. A good learning experience for him. A couple of blind doglegs to the right make it interesting (hadn't been there in years), but I'd go back in a heartbeat. Worth the drive from London.
Note: Nice young man greeted us upon arrival in the parking lot and loaded our bags onto the cart!

Widder is a fun course

The greens survived a horrible winter rather well and the overall conditioin was quite good. There are a number of different and interesting hole types and it was fun to play this course.

Terrific golf course

First time playing Widder Station so I took a cart but otherwise it would be a fine course to walk. This is a really terrific golf course, probably the best bang-for-your-buck, especially at GN Hot Deal prices. Great variety and challenge, fast greens which took the break out of a lot of putts. Some blind shots and many opportunities to get your balls wet. Strategic shot-making is critical on a few holes. Overall, A++. Will golf here again when I am in the area.

Starter

Starter is needed here. Golfers lined up. Pay for tee time. When you check in him or her tells you a couple of times ahead of you your good to go. But when you get there you have 4 or 5 ahead of you. When we arrived to get our cart the fellow bringing up the carts played the group behind us. The course was wet in areas. This fellow went through these areas to spin the wheels of the cart???? He new the ranger on the course as they talked about the previous day as we waited to tee off on the next holes.. Some management is needed here.

Nice Layout

Played on a Saturday Afternoon--pace of play quite slow as we were a twosome following a couple slow foursomes .. Fairways quite dried out and rough very dry. Greens in fair shape with some scorched spots [about 10% of each green] . With some rain , course should come back nicely.. Give it a try during the week when fewer cottagers around.

Intriguing holes

While the course could be in better shape, holes like 11 and 18 really make it an enjoyable round. Will definitely be back if golf now has more hot deals here.

This course has character

This course is very open to wind conditions. Club selection depending on the wind could be 3 different clubs. There are a few risk reward holes that can get you into trouble if you choose "RISK"

Good Golf @Widder

Course is in good shape, very little winter kill on the greens.. Staff very helpful and friendly. A little tight is places but challenging.. Tee boxes seem to overlap at times but manageable. Good course overall, will return for another round.

A great golf afternoon

My wife and I enjoyed a fun round of golf. The pace was good, the conditions were great, and the weather was perfect. The greens were fast and true, the fairways were firm, and the staff were friendly. Ww booked through GolfNow and received a Hot Deal. This course is worth another visit;

Swing or Miss

I've played this course a dozen or so times, its usually in very good shape and offers great value through GolfNow. Its a par 72 and is relatively easy and forgiving. Everyone is really nice. Weekend rounds are consistently 4 1/2 hrs + (Sunday took 5hrs 30 minutes!).

Great value

Can't beat widder, playable for all skill levels, because of wet spring not up to normal conditions, but getting close. As always great experience from the time you arrive until you leave. When I walked in the door the staff knew who I was and that it was a golf now reservation
