Traps need lots of work, greens need better attention from players (ball marks, divots, cleat marks)

A treat to play.

Been playing there for years. It’s not a low priced course but all in all, good value. The course is in terrific condition. The layout will challenge a low handicapper but approachable for a high handicapper. If this is the first time to play the course, you should expect a fun, challenging experience. Full value.

beautiful design

Mark Lehman, Thomas McBroom design. Terrific layout/design with 9 and 15 standing out visually. Greens hold approach shots, and putt true. Lots of opportunity for big scores if you stray from the fairway. Back to school creating staff shortages in restaurant and operating hours. have been reduced as a result Course is for Sale.... currently 60% of tee times are reserved for public cut that could change with ownership change,

Very challenging greens

A beautiful course with stunning views of Georgian Bay. Course is in excellent condition, other than the sand traps that definitely require work. The greens are extremely fast and very challenging.

Great Outing

Beautiful course. Unfortunate that the course was water logged and we were cart path only and the bunkers were unplayable. The starter and check in were both welcoming and informative.

Greens are way to unfair

Unfortunately the developers have taken an extremely picturesque course with great views of Georgian Bay and turned it into a housing development. Most holes have new builds on them which are very close to the fairways. That took much of the experience away. Then having to 3 putt almost every hole because the undulation of the greens was so extremely unfair made the decision to play this course again clear. I will not be returning, at least not this season. Golf should be challenging and fun not just challenging.

A lot of money for not much

This was my first time at this course, and I brought some out of town guests who had never been to the area, but are experienced golfers. I wanted to impress them, so we splurged for this course. We were assigned a 4th player, which is rare, and somewhat impeded our girls weekend, but it was fine. The biggest issue was that the beverage snack cart only came around once, after our first hole. We were STARVING and parched, and would have appreciated another visit or two. I called the clubhouse at the 11th hole asking for the cart to pay us a visit, but we never saw it. Luckily we brought our own water, and we aren't diabetic, or we would have been in trouble. No need for any of us to return to this $$$ course.

Lora Bay Golf

Beautiful course next to Georgian Bay. Very challenging layout. Fairways in great shape. However during my round greens were aerated and top dressed making the greens more difficult to putt. Overall a beautiful course and lots of fun to play.
